The Norwalk Education Foundation: SPELLING BEE
Have you heard the BUZZZ? It's time to dust off your Webster's Dictionary and get ready for the Norwalk Education Foundation’s 1st Community Spelling Bee!!!
Join us on Thursday April 25th, 2013 for this exciting, fun‐filled educational endeavor. The curtain goes up at 6:30 and up to forty teams will compete against each other until only one team is left standing and awarded a cash prize. Teams will be made up of teachers, parents, high school students, community members, local officials, and area businesses. Teams are encouraged to create a team name, wear unique costumes, and to bring a cheering section!
The Spelling Bee is designed to celebrate learning while raising awareness and support for our programs and initiatives. It will be an evening of lively and exciting competition amongst friends, family and neighbors! We hope that you will be willing to support this event in one or more ways:
- Sponsor a team (or two!) of 3 individuals to represent your organization and compete in the Bee.
- Make a financial contribution as a “sponsor” of the event.
- Donate an in‐kind item to be used as a prize.
- Rally a team of 3 together to compete.

KUMON: Math and Reading Success
School is about to end, but learning doesn’t have to end when class is dismissed. At Kumon, we provide a perfect complement to the traditional school curriculum, with a method that’s geared toward self-learning in math and reading. Soon enough, your child will be able to grasp any concept on his or her own, giving them knowledge and confidence to carry into the classroom and beyond.
*Offer valid at participating Kumon Centers only when you enroll between 6/1/13 - 6/30/13. Contact the center for promotional details.
