Recently, NCA held a spelling bee on its campus and we’re proud to report that it was a big success! One of our very own students, Mitchell Townsend, had an impressive showing and competed very well! Mitchell is an 11-year old 5th grader who loves spelling, studying and reading as many books as he can! Mitchell has attended Northside since the third grade and has placed in the top 3 in NCA spelling bees every year.
Mitchell said that the best part of the spelling bee is when it comes down to the last two participants. He also commented that studying makes a big difference in his success. Mitchell came in 4th place out of 144 spellers last week at the ACSI Spelling Bee, which was hosted here at Northside. He earned a spot to compete at the Regional ACSI Spelling Bee in Atlanta, GA on March 21st and we couldn’t be any prouder of him! Congratulations, Mitchell!
