On February 4th, Magnolia’s annual District Spelling Bee took place and was hosted at Dr. Jonas E. Salk School. Our District coordinates with the Orange County Department of Education to put this annual event together under the guidance of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, which is the nation’s largest and longest-running educational program. Their mission is to “inspire the exploration of words and illuminate pathways to lifelong curiosity, and celebrate academic achievement while enriching communities.”
