3rd Annual JSerra Spelling Bee

The 3rd Annual Spelling Bee will take place on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 for the top 5th and 6th grade spellers from one of seven local partner schools:

St.Catherine’s of Siena Parish School
Saint Junipero Serra Catholic School
Mission Basilica School
Our Lady of Fatima
St. John’s Episcopal School
Our Lady Queen of Angels
Stratford 

Each school will have three representatives from both 5th and 6th grade as they look to take the crown and be deemed spelling bee champion. Last year’s champion Mission Basilica returns to attempt to keep the trophy in San Juan Capistrano. Meanwhile, the field welcomes two newcomers who did not participate in last years tournament: Our Lady Queen of Angels and Stratford who are looking to have a strong showing. Returning to the field for another go-round are St.Catherine’s, Serra Catholic, Our Lady of Fatima, and St. John’s as they look to lean on experience to catapult to the top of the spelling bee world. All friends and family are welcome to attend and watch what promises to be an instant classic!
