The Rosedale Union School District is once again participating in the local level of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
This academic competition gives students the opportunity to showcase their knowledge of words.

Each school site will hold a school level Spelling Bee in January 2016. Please contact your school for more information on dates and times. Each school will send the top three spellers to the District Spelling Bee.
