Remember that breakout sleeper movie that came out of nowhere, "Akeelah and the Bee," about an inner-city girl competing in the Scripps National Spelling Bee?
Well, go rent it or take it out from the library and prepare for next week's Crimson Point Spelling Bee.
Crimson Point Elementary is holding its first spelling bee on Wednesday, Feb. 2, and Thursday, Feb. 3.
Students in grades 1 through 3 will compete on Feb. 2, and students in grades 4 through 6 on Feb. 3. The spelling bee will take place at 6 p.m. on both nights.
Teachers will be holding in-class spelling bees, and the top three spellers from each class will move on to the school spelling bee.
Kuna Mayor Scott Dowdy will be the spelling bee master both nights with Kuna Superintendent Jay Hummel, assistant superintendent Wendy Johnson and Crimson Point Principal Kim Cammack serving as judges.
The top two students and one alternate from each grade from the school spelling bee will then move on to a multi-school bee which will include Siena, Lake Hazel, Mary Mac, Christine Donnell and Crimson Point.
That bee will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 10 and 11, at Siena Elementary School.
Students in grades 6 through 8 will compete on Feb. 10, and students in grades 1 through 5 on Feb. 11.
