SPARK Spelling Bee
Every January, Bee season hits Springdale Park. Since 2013 SPARK has participated in one of the oldest and most respected educational programs, Scripps Spelling Bee. Grades 1-5 have spelling activities and centers in the classroom culminating with classroom bees.
The top three students in each homeroom in grades 4-5 compete in a school wide bee. The winner advances to the APS district bee. SPARK students have routinely placed in the top tier of district spellers every year and in 2016, the SPARK representative placed at the trophy level.
The 2019 school wide bee was a competitive one as usual. After many intense rounds 5th grader, Quin Glancy won the bee on a most difficult word. Congratulations to Quin!
