Y-O-U! Spelling Bee Chair Needed

What's the buzz about? We are getting ready to organize the Newcastle Elementary Spelling Bee in order to send our students to the local and hopefully National Scripp's Spelling Bee Competition.

In order for this to happen we need a couple of volunteers to help chair and work with the PTSA to coordinate our school's event.  If helping kids with literacy in a fun competitive manner is up your alley, then let us know!

Planning starts now with our school's competition to be held in January. It's a nice way to join in and volunteer with a time limited commitment.
