Spelling Team is open for both 5th and 6th grade students. Beginning in October, any student can attend practices and compete to be on the official team. These practices occur twice a week through the end of December. At the end of December, the 6 students who have missed the least words in practices are chosen to be on the John Greer Spelling Team. These 6 students continue practicing through the month of January and February. In February, a Sectional Contest is held and John Greer often hosts this Contest. Winning teams then advance to the Vermilion County Finals which are held at the DACC Bremer Conference Center.
