School’s in, and it’s time for adults to start sharpening their pencils as well. Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF) is holding its 26th Annual Wellesley Spelling Bee — an adult spelling contest — on Thursday, November 5 at 7pm at the Sprague Elementary School gym.
Last year, over 55 teams drawn from local businesses, community groups, PTOs, colleges and schools strutted their stuff. Perhaps this is your year to shine? Get your three-person team together and enter by October 16. The cost for entry is $500.
The Bee is a key annual fundraiser for WEF, building the dollars needed to support innovation and enrichment in the Wellesley Public Schools. Donations of any amount are welcome. Sponsorship is a great way to showcase your business or individual support in our local community. You can become a sponsor at one of the following levels:
