The Spelling Bee
On Friday, January 27, NLCS participated in the Associated Christian Schools International District Spelling Bee held at the Arcata Christian School.
At the third grade level Andrew Damwyk placed first and Finnigan Holmes was fourth.
In the fourth grade bee, Raigan Brooks placed third and Cindy Shay Long was fourth.
For fifth grade, Kadence Foord placed first and Taylor Brooks was third.
At the sixth grade level, Nathaniel Holmes placed third.
Rebekah Long was third at the seventh grade level.
Keenan Quintal was first and Haley Shimabukuro was fourth for the eighth grade.
The final round spell-off included all students in grades five though eight who had place at their grade level. The words which challenged the spellers came from a separate list that the students did not have prior to the bee. Rebekah Long placed second, Haley Shimabukuro was third, and Taylor Brooks was fourth.
This is such a challenging opportunity, and we are so proud of each student who participated.
These girls qualified for the State Championship in Anaheim!
