2017-2018 SCISA Regional Spelling Bee


On January 24, 2018 First Baptist participated in the annual South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA) Regional Spelling Bee.

First Baptist students in grades third through eighth were selected to participate in the spelling bee based on their stellar spelling ability.

The students worked hard to prepare for the bee. They studied at home and many came before school every morning to study as a group.

The students, accompanied by Mrs. Bradley, traveled to The Oaks Christian School in Summerville, SC for the bee. All of the students did such a wonderful job and many stayed in for multiple rounds. But, what was most impressive was all of the student’s support of one another and the respect they showed to all of the contestants.

Fourth Grade: Tripp Mintz, Miles Jackson and Liam Modzelewski
