• Spelling Bee to be Live Streamed



    If you have a loved one competing in Saturday’s spelling bee at the Celebrating Academic Excellence competition and can’t make it, we’ve got you covered. For the first time ever, WPS will be providing an online live feed of both the elementary and middle school competition.


    The same technology used to “live switch” and stream the Board of Education meetings from the lecture hall at Westminster High School will be moved to Ranum Middle School to capture the day’s events. As always, the competition will be archived for viewing at a later date as well.


    The spelling bee, which comes at the end of the competition, will be streamed here.


    The annual Celebrating Academic Excellence event is being held at Ranum Middle School with students from every school in the district battling it out in friendly competition. The day begins at 7:30 am with performances from the Westminster High School Orchestra and the Raging Harmonies singing group.


    After the opening ceremonies, the competitors get down to work.


    Students will be competing this year in the following categories:

    • Elementary Geography Bee
    • Middle School Geography Bee
    • MathCounts
    • Computer Explorers/Lego League
    • Science Fair
    • Middle School Spelling Bee
    • Elementary Spelling Bee
