The Palo Verde PTA will be hosting a Spelling Bee for students on January 28, 2022 starting at 5PM in the Adobe room at the Mitchell Park Community Center. This in-person local Spelling Bee is part of the national competition. Only students of Palo Verde Elementary who meet the eligibility requirements may participate.

This Spelling Bee will also feature word meaning questions. We will have a champion per grade level and a school champion. The school champion will be eligible to participate in the 2022 SNSB Region Two Final Local Bee in March. The champion of the SNSB Region Two Final Local Bee will advance to the 2022 Scripps National Spelling Bee hosted by none other than LeVar Burton!

To cover the expenses of the hall rental we are asking for a $20 registration fee per speller. School policy does not permit us to host events at the school. Note, we will be following the usual COVID protocols including masking and requiring proof of vaccination to enter the event hall.

We could use some help during the event, so if you are interested in being a spelling judge, record keeper, registration, or help with refreshments, please send a message to
