[MUSIC] Good morning students teachers and
family members welcome to the 2018 Garland ISD Spelling
Bee. I’m Jed Reed school board member, your host for the spelling bee. We are
looking forward to an exceptional day of spelling by the 57 students representing
46 elementary and 12 middle schools as campus Spelling Bee champions. The
district champion and six runners-up will compete in the Dallas County
Spelling Bee on Thursday February 22nd. At this time I’d like to introduce our
judges for the spelling bee. Our coordinator Mary Shelton
Secondary English Language Arts Coordinator, our judges today are Ray
Merrill, Area Director, Jeffrey Miller, Executive Director of Curriculum
Instruction and Kelley Steinley, Primary English Language Arts
Coordinator. Our pronouncer is Jimmy Sellers. Our appeals coordinator is Ryan
Baumgartner. Let’s review the rules and approach to the microphone. Students when you give your work when you are given your word you will face the judges and
pronounce the word before and after spelling it. Please say each letter
distinctly and with sufficient volume to be understood by the judges. You may ask
me to say the word again, define it, use it in a sentence, provide the part of
speech, provide the languages of origin and/or provide an alternate
pronunciation to the word. Once you begin to spell a word you may stop and start
over retracing the spelling from the beginning, but in the retracing there can
be no change of letters or their sequence of order. If any letter our
sequence is changed in respelling, you will be disqualified. No speller will
be asked to correct the misspelling of another contestant. All spellers
eliminated in the same round are tied for the same place. Students, if you miss
a word and leave the stage you will need to take a seat in the rows indicating
the row number in which you missed your word. Miss Raina and Miss Lloyd will
direct you. You will need to retain remain seated during the remainder of
the contest in case we need to recall spellers for a particular round. We’re
