The entire Board, Management and Team Members of the Teammasters National Spelling Bee wishes you all a Happy New Year. We do hope that this new academic session will be a successful and fruitful one!
The holidays are usually a look forward to moment for everyone – school management, teachers, students and pupils, likewise parents due to the family funtime, spare time to rest as well as make plans for the new session…some people wish it could extend a little longer, don’t you?
Anyways, we are back to school now and like it or not…holidays are OVER!!! So get yourselves (body, mind and spirit) together and set the gear in motion for a fantastic session.
