Dear Parents and Guardians,

Harmony Science Academy Sugar Land will hold classroom spelling bees in each grade level Friday, November 2nd to determine eligible participants for the school-wide spelling bee. The first and second place winners of each homeroom class will participate in the school-wide spelling bee in December.  A third place alternate will also be selected, but he/she will only participate if the first or second place winner is unable to participate due to extenuating circumstances. A printed list of your child’s grade level spelling list has been sent home and a soft copy has also been sent via email by his/her ELA teacher. Please note that students who are absent on the day of the spelling bee will not be eligible to participate since the class spelling bee will only be conducted once. A full copy of the 2018 School Spelling Bee Study List will be provided to students who seek a challenge upon student or parent request.
