The Spelling Bee went very well and was a lot of fun. The winner of the Bee this year is 8th grader Eli Zinzer! He will be representing Northeast Middle School at the district Spelling Bee on Februrary 2nd. Also, congratulations to the runners up: Taj McKinnon (6th grade) and Alexis Knight (7th grade). Great job everyone!
Congratulations to all of our Geography Bee finalists; they all made it through multiple rounds of increasingly difficult questions about some of the most obscure spots on the globe until only three remained.
In THIRD PLACE for the second year in a row was Irma O'meara.
In SECOND PLACE was Hnukusha Vue.
And our FIRST PLACE winner was Sasha Resig, who managed to answer all three of the Championship Round questions correctly -- a Northeast Middle School first.
