November 2017 Spelling Bee and Community Day

November 2017 Quick Update

This month at Speedway Academies, we have been continuing our soar to success and giving back.

Spelling Bee

We held our first quarterly spelling bee, where representatives from each homeroom (grades 3 to 8) battled one another in a Scripps-style Spelling Bee. Their words were all pulled directly from their WordlyWise workbooks and we are so proud of our winners and all of our participants!

Community Day

This past Saturday, November 18, 2017, our faculty, staff, and community supporters came together to volunteer their time for the Speedway Academies’ community. We had an amazing day of food, fellowship, and fun. We were able to serve more than 400 meals and distribute more than 50 toys.
