• It's Time for the Romig S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G Bee!

     
    spelling bee logo This year, Scripps National Spelling Bee has developed an online testing platform that will allow Romig to host a remote school spelling bee. 
     
    If your child is interested in competing in the school spelling bee, the first step is to register for the Scripps National Spelling Bee's online testing platform by visiting https://online-test.spellingbee.com. I encourage you to watch this video tutorial that will walk you through the registration process, or view this PDF file for detailed instructions.  (Note:  our test will not be multiple choice like the sample in the video.  Students will be required to type the word instead.)  For registration purposes, Romig's zip code is 99503.
     
    Registrations are due January 25th, 2021.  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. 
     
    Once you have registered, your student will receive the 2020-2021 study list (have them check their Canvas inbox) and we will assign the qualifying test to your child. Your child must complete this test between February 1 - 3, 2021.  Parents/Guardians serve as proctors, and the test can be taken on any device with a web browser, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets, Chromebooks, and smart phones. 
     
    A maximum of 25 students will be invited to compete at the school level competition, which will also be administered online.  Those who earn the highest scores on the qualifying exam will move on to the school bee on February 24th.
     
    Our school champion will then move on to represent Romig in the Alaska State Scripps Spelling Bee sponsored by the Anchorage Daily News on March 5, 2021.
