Written Bee for Grades 4-6 will be held during school for all upper grade students on Wednesday, January 8th. The 20-25 top scorers from the Written Bee will move on to the Silver Oak Oral Spelling Bee which will take place on Wednesday January 15th at 6pm in the Multipurpose Room.
Permission slips will be sent home to those students who qualify for the oral spelling bee.
The Silver Oak School Champion from our Oral Spelling Bee will qualify to compete with other school champions via a local online test administered at Silver Oak in late January.
The top School Champion finishers of the online test (up to 50) will move on to the 2020 Bay Area Regional Spelling Bee at the Amador Theater in Pleasanton, CA on Saturday, February 29th.
