April 10, 2017 -- Where would you find an attorney, a professor, and a violinist in costumes on stage at Heights High? At the Reaching Heights Adult Community Spelling Bee!

This year is the 26th fun-yet-serious spelling competition to celebrate public education and raise funds for Reaching Heights.

It takes place on Wednesday, April 19 at 7 p.m. at Heights High School, Wiley Campus. Admission is free.

The Bee brings together business owners, community groups, school administrators and staff, parents, students, and neighbors.

Three spellers work together to write down the letters in the word given to them and then send a teammate to the microphone to read out the team’s best guess.

Teams name themselves and dress in costumes that represent their company, school or organization, or play with a letters or insect theme.

This annual event is a community collaboration to support Reaching Heights programs that enrich students, support teachers, and connect the community to our public schools. Each three-member team pays a $500 entrance fee and is encouraged to solicit additional support from friends, neighbors and co-workers to be named the Fundraising Champion, a title held for more than 10 years by the Upper Case team of professors from Case Western Reserve University.
