Our team of Super Spellers will represent Rutledge Properties at the annual Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF) Spelling Bee, to be held on Thursday, November 4 at 7:00 pm at the Sprague School Gym, 401 School Street in Wellesley (light refreshments are served from 6:30 to 7:00).
The evening will begin with 7 rounds of 7 to 8 teams in the Preliminary Competition followed by the Championship Round with the Preliminary Round winners.
The WEF has a long tradition of supporting and valuing education in the town of Wellesley. WEF addresses the challenge of maintaining excellence in the Wellesley schools in today's financial reality. WEF's primary endeavor is to provide grants to educators for innovative educational projects at all grade levels. In awarding grants, WEF works closely with school administrators to fund projects that result in richer and deeper learning experiences and have the potential to impact a large number of students. We differ from Parent Teacher Organizations in funding programs that benefit students throughout the school system. During the 2004-2005 school year, WEF funded grant proposals totaling over $50,000. The letters WEF receives each year from educators who have received WEF grants express their deep appreciation for our community's support for their efforts to enrich the educational experience of Wellesley's students.
Come on out and support this fine organization and the Rutledge Team of Super Spellers!
