Spelling is Alive and Well in the Schools

When people look for a home, for many, the concern is the local school system and what is happening.   This is an example on how change is coming to some of the school systems thanks to parents who take an interest.  Billerica is mentioned in this article for its Spelling Bee, started by parents of school age children Michael and Denise Moore.  Michael is also a member of the Partners for Education Board.  The Partners in Billerica help to bring educational programs to the local schools that they might not otherwise experience thanks to their annual grants.  Monies are raised for these grants through events like the Townwide Talent and Art Show, the Fight for Education, and the newest – the Billerica Spelling Bee scheduled for the first Saturday in March.

Billerica’s Spelling Bee is mentioned in this Globe article – enjoy!
