Annual Fundraising Project


This year's Spell-A-Bration is set for Thursday, April 11, 2024!

Science Hill High School Gymnasium | 6 PM

Register your team today!

The Spell-A-Bration is a fun event held in April each year that raises funds for special projects, not funded by the regular school budget.  Remember the annual spelling bee when you were in school?  This event is less stressful than you remember, and much more fun with teams of 4 adults working together to correctly spell words on a white board.  Teams come up with creative names and costumes.  Your registration fee goes to a worthy cause, and you and your friends have a great evening of fun competition and laughter.
