Registration for the Greenwood Spelling Bee

Dear Parents of 2nd through 5th grade students,

This year, the Scripps National Spelling Bee has developed an online testing platform that will allow Greenwood Elementary School to host a school spelling bee program virtually. In place of our traditional spelling bee program, we will hold two levels of competition through online spelling tests. The first step to spelling bee participation is for you to register for the Scripps National Spelling Bee’s online testing platform by visiting https://online-test.spellingbee.com BEFORE Sunday, November 15th. I encourage you to watch this video tutorial that will walk you through the registration process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXzjpnMijc

Once you have registered, I will be able to assign the appropriate grade level test to your child. Your child must complete the test between November 16th and November 20th, and these tests can be taken on any device with a web browser, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones. The five students with the highest scores from each grade level will move on to compete at the school level. This year, our school-level competition will be administered via online testing. This anticipated date is Wednesday, December 2nd. Our school champion will then move on to represent Greenwood Elementary School in the Henrico County Public Schools regional spelling bee program, which also may include online tests in lieu of in-person spelling bee events.

The first step to spelling bee participation is to register at online-test.spellingbee.com. Please register before Sunday, November 15. If you have already registered in the online testing platform for another child, you can log in to your account and add an additional child to that same parent account. There is no need to register a different email address for each child in your household.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions about our school spelling bee program. I look forward to having your child compete to represent our school!

Sincerely,

Amy Coward
