Gud spellarz wonted

If you’re erudite, an extrovert or just like to show off your ability to spell, the Grafton Education Alliance has an event planned just for you.

The GEA is now drafting teams for a community spelling bee and silent auction, planned for March 6 (that’s 2009!), 6-8:30 p.m. at Grafton High School. Teams of three will compete in rounds for the title of best spellers in Grafton.

The cost per team is $150, although admission to the event itself is free. The GEA is hoping to round up about 25 teams which, in past years, have hailed from the Grafton schools, town offices, churches and athletic groups.

Prizes will also be awarded for the most original team name, the most team spirit and the most distinguishing look. Teams will be provided with a study guide before the event.

The evening will be presided over by Town Moderator Roger Trahan.  South Grafton Elementary School Principal Doreen Parker and North Grafton Elementary School Principal Michelle Tynan will be the Official Pronouncers, while Supt. Joseph Connors, Grafton Elementary School Principal Brenda Plainte and Grafton High School Assistant Principal Maureen Cohen will be the Bee Judges.

If you are interested in forming a team, or sponsoring the event, please contact Teresa Johnston at or Lorraine Guyer at

  1. It must have killed you writing that title. I mean…seeing those red lines under the words and still hitting the ‘publish’ button.

  2. Heh. I asked my 8-year-old to come up with a creative spelling that still sounded right. I personally think the trend to end words in “z” to make them sound all hip and kid-friendly should just end already.

  3. Gud Spellarz…haha. You know you’re an editor when you look at a piece of copy and see the red and green underlines in Word and think, “This writer probably thinks the underlines are just a Christmas feature.”
