Spelling Bee Competitions Flourish at Castleberry ISD  
  Students throughout Castleberry ISD are competing to move on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee competition on February 20th. We featured an article recently about the winner at A.V. Cato. They ended 2014 with their campus wide competition. You can read all about theirs by clicking on A.V. Cato Ends Year with Spelling Bee. The campus wide winner was Luke S.

Now in early 2015 the competitions continue as the campuses strive to send their representatives to the Scripps National Spelling Bee, Area 12 competition. There the winners will meet and compete against champion spellers from Azle, Eagle Mountain-Saginaw, Lake Worth, and White Settlement school districts.
