As you are aware, it is very important that your child attend each and every practice. They can only miss one day of practice before they are removed for lack of participation, which further prevents them from being eligible to compete. Please make arrangements for your child to be at school on each of the listed practice dates and have them remain here throughout the entire practice. It is their responsibility to practice memorizing all of their words at home. You and your student will be notified in writing of any and all changes. Just remember, you are ALL winners in our book and we look forward to this very fun time with each of you!!3rd-4th Grade students will have 50 words with an additional 15 words used as a tiebreaker.
