Wellesley Education Foundation’s 22nd Annual Spelling Bee kicks off tonight (Nov. 3) at Sprague Elementary School at 7pm. Team Butyraceous was last year’s winning team and the first group to sign up for this year’s competition. The Board of Selectmen and other town teams will try to knock them off. Among the other teams competing are Phund for Wellesley, Spellbinders, Zoned Out and Ex-Offici. Admission to watch the event is free, and money raised by the participating teams goes to enrichment programs for Wellesley Public Schools.
