Spell Bowl

Sponsor/Coach:  Ms. Mousa and Mr. Purvis

HPSA will have a SpellBowl team this year! Academic Spell Bowl is a competition sponsored by the Indiana Association of School Principals. Rather than spelling out loud into a microphone, students on the Spell Bowl team compete in a 9-word round, with each word being written down and then graded/scored. There is no stage fright involved, because no speller has to "perform" with all the attention on them! The team consists of 8 spellers and 2 alternates. We will compete at the regional competition on October 30.  If we qualify, the state competition is in November. We will practice after school 3 days a week, and we will have fun! Spell Bowl is a great way to make new friends, expand your vocabulary, build confidence, and prepare for high school. See Ms. Mousa or Mr. Purvis for more information!
