2016 Spelling Bee Champion Named

On Thursday, January 14, 2016,  Northside Elementary School held is second annual Spelling Bee. The Spelling Bee was open to all students in third through fifth grade. Prior to the winter break each classroom chose a champion speller to represent their class in the school wide Spelling Bee.

During the Bee Mrs. Sharpless, NES principal and Mrs. Cole, NES librarian served as pronouncers. Mrs. Beckwith NES MCIL for 5th grade served as the judge.

The competition stiff and it was very evident that each of the participants had been studying very hard to prepare for the Bee. After seventeen rounds of competition, Jacob B. in Ms. Vance's fifth grade class was named the champion after correctly spelling the word "fundamental."

Thanks to the PTA and all NES staff and families for supporting this event.

Congratulations to Jacob and all of the 2016 Spelling Bee participants!
