Northside Elementary School hosted it's Spelling Bee on Wednesday, Dec. 8. Three spellers from each of the 4th and 5th grade classes for a total of 24 spellers particpated in the Bee. Dozens of family members, teachers and students attended this exciting annual event.
After eight rounds there were eight spellers who had not misspelled a word and these spellers will represent Northside in the Middleton Cross Plains District Bee which will be held at the Middleton Performing Arts Center in January.
The final two spellers, 4th grader Mia Kim and 5th grader Henry Taylor, went several rounds until finally a word was misspelled by Henry. At that point Mia correctly spelled the missed word and correctly spelled one final word to become the champion.
Pricipal Roz Craney congratulated the particpants and told them that after eight rounds the elementary school kids were spelling from the 8th grade list.
