It is time to start prepping for the 
Spelling Bee!!

The ANCS Spelling Bee will be held on Thursday January 10 at 4:15 in the middle campus library. This is a great cross-campus event that promotes vocabulary, confidence and public speaking. Families are invited to come and support their spellers and peers.

Any ANCS student in grades 4-8 may join. Study lists may be picked up in the libraries on either campus, or Ms. Linahan can email/Google share a pdf by request.

The winner will go on to compete in the Atlanta Public Schools District Bee.

Students may sign up here.

BBB - Breakfast, Buzzers & Books

Books, Breakfast & Buzzers - or BBB - is the student-christened name for our Reading Bowl team. It is open to any interested student. We will begin meeting in November after school on Mondays until 4:30 and on Fridays for Library Lunches. Our reading list will consist of all 20 titles from the Georgia Children's Book Award Nominees which are segregated by grades 4-5 and 6-8, but all are great middle school reads. Students should aim to read at least 4 books. The more they read, the better they will do in the final trivia bowl. During meetings, students will have time to work on book trailers and create trivia questions. The majority of the reading is done on the student's own time. The club will have a final meeting on Saturday, February 2 where families can join us for breakfast, hear our book discussions and see our book trailers and displays. The morning culminates with a nail-biting trivia event and lots of fun. Contact for additional information.
