2020 Teacher of the Year, Rookie Teacher of the Year and Ambassadors for Excellence Celebration 

While we had to postpone the 2020 Teacher of the Year celebration, we are working to recognize the hard work and dedication of the 2020 Teacher of the Year, Rookie of the Year and the Ambassadors for Excellence winners. We will honor our winners very soon!

Thank you for your patience during these difficult times.

Coconino County Spelling Bee

The Spelling Bee in Coconino County is a strong tradition intended to encourage and celebrate academic excellence. Open to all students in Coconino County in grades three through eight. We hope it improves spelling, increases vocabularies, fosters the learning of new concepts, and develops correct English usage that will help our children all their lives. Plus it’s fun!

Typically, the County Bee is scheduled for the weekend before President’s Day.

To ensure your students’ eligibility to participate in the 2021 Coconino County Spelling Bee (February 6, 2021) and the 2021 Arizona Spelling Bee (March 20, 2021), schools musts be registered with Scripps National Spelling Bee by December 18, 2020.

Go to Arizona Educational Foundation to access the statewide spelling bee information and much more.
