Spelling Bee Competition

A spelling bee is a competition amongst students in which a moderator will ask them to spell a selection of words, involving degrees of difficulty. The earliest known evidence of the phrase Spelling Bee in print dates back to 1850, although an earlier name, Spelling Match, has been traced back to 1808.
At Pledge Harbor, we regularly have Spelling Bee Contests between the four Houses to creat competition and most importantly, introduce words that students should know at their particular level and beyond.
Director Curriculum, Mr. Adnan Chowdhury, English department teachers, Ms Mary Herbel Santiago and Ms. Tahmina Syed with the winners of the houses.
