The Center for Academic Success is accepting applications for K-8 Educators. Submit your résumé and cover letter online at or mail it to Attn: Wendy Koop, 900 Carmelita Drive, Sierra Vista AZ 85635.

The Center for Academic Success will be kicking off their annual Spelling Bee the week of October 3rd with a packet of information about the 50 Great American SpellCheck words to study, as well as fundraising information  for the event.  Students will be asked to study their grade specific words, and raise money for the event by gathering pledges from family and friends.

Why Pledge?

The purpose of the Scripps National Spelling Bee is to not only to encourage students to learn how to spell and increase their vocabulary, but it also is one exclusive way to fund raise for your school that gives 100% of the funds directly to the students for academic achievement.

Get Involved!

Just encouraging your student to participate is the first step. If you want to contribute more, you can help your child study their 50 words, and pledge. You can even get more involved by volunteering. We need volunteers to administer the Great American SpellCheck test for a grade level class, grade the tests and record student test scores on pledge forms.

For more information, and if you would like to volunteer, please contact Mrs. Silverwind, The Center for Academic Success Spelling Bee Coordinator.
