The Sutter County Superintendent of Schools Office plays an important role in the delivery of quality education to the students of this county. We provide direct service instructional programs to nearly 9,500 students annually through infant programs, special education, vocational/ occupational programs, outdoor science, and alternative education. These programs are operated more efficiently by the county than by a school district (with economy of scale) and more appropriately than a school district with confined boundaries. The Sutter County Superintendent of Schools Office provides these services to district students through cooperative agreements among participants.
The 35th Annual Sutter County Spelling Bee, proudly sponsored by Sutter County Superintendent of Schools and Sutter-Yuba Association of Realtors, was held on Wednesday night, March 8, 2017. Boyd Hall was packed with proud, supportive parents, grandparents, and teachers!
Fifth grade student, Stella Triebold, a student at Twin Rivers Charter School, took first place with the winning word “spatula.” Taylor Nelson, a sixth grade student at Brittan Elementary School, took second place. Sutter County’s third place winner was Joscelin Robles, a fifth grader from King Avenue Elementary School in Yuba City Unified School District. The first and second place winners are eligible to participate in the 2017 California State Elementary Spelling Championship, May 13, at the San Joaquin Office of Education in Stockton.
Sutter County Superintendent of Schools and the Sutter-Yuba Association of Realtors would like to congratulate not only the winners of the county bee, but all the contestants who participated in this year’s spelling bee. The county spelling bee has become a long time tradition and an event that all of our students in our county look forward to every year. Kristi Johnson, Educational Services Coordinator for Sutter County Schools, emphasized the importance of learning the rules of spelling and the patterns within words to become proficient spellers versus memorizing lists of words. We would also like to extend our thanks to the teachers and parents, as well as those who volunteer for this event, each of who because of their contribution, dedication and involvement help to make this annual event a success!
Stella and Taylor will represent Sutter County well in the state spelling bee. Best of luck to them.
