The Wayland Public Schools Foundation is pleased to host the 29th Annual Spelling Bee on Sunday, March 29th, 2020 from 12:00pm to 4:30pm, at the Wayland High School. The annual Spelling Bee is a fundraising event for the Foundation, welcoming over 350 elementary Bee participants, 70 community volunteers, and over 1000 guests.

Form Your Swarm!

The Spelling Bee is:

  • Open to students in grades 2 through 5

  • A team spelling bee. Children form teams of three (their “swarm”), with all three members in the same grade.

  • Held at Wayland High School between 12:00pm and 4:30pm. Each team is assigned a 35 minute timeslot in which they will compete with 5 to 8 other teams in the same grade. (The specific timeslot for each team will be posted to the website in early March. Please note that we are not able to accommodate requests to participate at specific times.)

  • If your child would like to participate in the Bee but, has encountered difficulty in identifying two additional teammates, please e-mail waylandspellingbee@gmail.com. We will do our best to assist with student placement on teams if we receive multiple inquiries from prospective spellers in the same grade.


Information regarding registration is coming soon!
