Learn and Earn! Spelling Bee

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It’s time for Learn and Earn! PS16’s main fundraising effort and find a school champion to represent PS16 in the Hudson County Spelling Bee. It’s based on the Great American Spellcheck, a fundraiser that makes sure 100% of the money raised benefits our school, and is rooted in academic.

Your child studies 50 spelling words (25 for Kindergarten) and collects pledges from family and friends for every word that he or she spells correctly on the 50-word test. Your child improves his or her spelling skills and our school enjoys the financial benefits!

Our goal is to raise $10,000.

Here is the Learn & Earn Timeline:

  • Wednesday, Dec 4th – Teachers conduct the written spelling test in school
  • Friday, Dec 13th – Classroom spell-offs to determine finalists for each class/grade level
  • Tuesday, December 17th  – PS 16 Spelling Bee hosted by Ms. Golombos & Ms. Garcia, to determine the school champion that will go on to represent PS16 at the Hudson County spell-offs.
  • Monday, Jan 6th – Spelling Awards hosted by the CPA Team

Attached is the word list for your child’s grade. The complete word list for Grades 1-8 (plus Grade 8 challenge words) is available at ps16cpa.net (“Learn & Earn” Spelling Bee). It has also been sent via email. Each grade has a list of 50 words to study. Grade 6 to Grade 8 challenge words are to be used for the final spell-off to determine the champion and the runners up.)

***Kindergarten receives a separate list of 25 sight words to study. This word list is also available at ps16cpa.net (“Learn & Earn” Spelling Bee)
