Great American SpellCheck

10:03 AM 0 Comments

Each year, the Northridge  Discovery Booster Club participates in the Great American SpellCheck. This is one of the biggest fundraisers for Discovery Booster Club.

All of the money raised by Discovery student pledges through this fundraiser will be used to support the Discovery Program and our Discovery teachers. In 2016, we raise over $2,000. The goal for 2017 is to raise $2,200.

Here’s how it works: 
A Great American SpellCheck Pledge Form and a spelling list are sent home in Thursday Folders. Your student studies 50 spelling words and collects donations from family and friends for every word that he or she spells correctly on the Great American SpellCheck 50-word test. Your student improves his or her spelling skills and the Discovery Program enjoys the financial benefits!

In 2017, NRE PTA and NRE DBC collaborated on hosting the Great American SpellCheck. Prizes will be awarded for the Northridge Elementary class with the highest dollar amount received will get a pizza party as a reward. The individual student with the highest dollar amount received will get a Jamba Juice gift card.
