Above: So, what could be a bigger draw to raise funds for SEF than a Spelling Bee? Top answer on the board – a teacher feud. Wait, make that a full bracket of teacher and staff feuds! (image from Urban Circus website)

Tonight, teachers and staff from Southborough schools will be pitted against each other. But it’s for fun and a worthy cause.

The Southborough Education Foundation turned its big March fundraiser into a “Family Feud”. Teams will compete to see who has “the fastest hands and quickets wits.”

I reached out to SEF to find out who is going head to head. I was puzzled by the list of eight teams that came back. 

I asked, “How can that many teams compete in a two-team game?”

The answer was – March Madness style. Teams are being bracketed off for three rounds of play.

Students, former students, and families from Woodward and Finn, plus Trottier’s Special Ed program, should have fun cheering on familiar faces. (Scroll down for the names.)

Four pairs of teams will challenge each other in the first round. That’s followed by two competitions in the semi finals. The last two teams standing will vie for the championship.

Of course, the real winner is Southborough K-12 students. The money that SEF raises is used to fund innovative educational programs at Southborough public schools and Algonquin Regional.

The doors will open at Trottier tonight at 5:30 pm for families to buy pizza and snacks.

And don’t forget the silent auction and raffle. (This event replaced the annual Spelling Bee – so you can expect the same kinds of great baskets and prizes you usually see there.)

The competition kicks off at 6:30 pm in the auditorium.

Admission is $8 per person. (You can purchase tickets in advance here.)

Now, here’s the list of teams and teachers/staff members. (Note, I broke these out by school, not brackets.)
