2016 Billerica Spell Check Registration Now Open!

Dear Students and Parents,

Billerica residents in grades three through eight (public, private, charter, parochial, and home school) are invited to participate in the eighth annual Billerica Spelling Bee, powered by the Billerica Partners for Education.

Our purpose is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives. This event is intended to encourage and celebrate academic excellence in our community.

To participate in the Billerica Spelling Bee, students must enroll in the program, take the Billerica Spell Check qualifying test, and be one of the top scoring spellers for their grade. There is no cost to participate.

The timeline for the Spelling Bee (subject to change):

  • October 12, 2016 – Enrollment begins. You can find information and videos from last year’s event at BillericaSpellingBee.org.
