Spelling Bee volunteers wanted

This year’s Spelling Bee is fast approaching (Feb 6th) and I hope your child will be up on stage working with a team showing what they know. (I can help you get a team together if you don’t already have one formed – there is still time.) We need some adults to manage the team line up before the kids go on stage, help sell food in the cafeteria, and general organization.

Please donate a couple hours of your time to do something very worthwhile for the Foundation for Belmont Education and our Public Schools.  We have never faced a bigger budget crisis in Belmont so fundraisers like these are essential to keep the learning up to the standard we’ve come to love.

Megan Pickette and Susan Black are in the process of recruiting both adult and student volunteers for the upcoming spelling bee on February 6.  They need volunteers in the cafe from 3:30-5:30 and 5:15-7:15.  Middle and High School students can get some Community Service points for helping hold “quiet” signs this year while the kids on stage are hearing the words to spell. If you have some that are interested in holding the signs in the auditorium, we have openings.

If you’re interested, contact Megan Pickette | 617-489-1647 | mfpickette(at)msn(dot)com

Remember, the Spelling Bee goes on Belmont Cable over and over and the kids really do enjoy seeing themselves.  I’m one of the judges and there is no pressure – just friendship and a love of vocabulary.
