The group has recently performed at the Congressional Black Caucus Luncheon and the Wells Fargo Community Celebration, where they performed at the Levine South Museum uptown.

As our students in 5th-8th grades displayed their knowledge of geography trivia in the preliminary competition of this year’s Geography Bee. The group was then narrowed down to the top ten. The final round, held on December 7th, consisted of 2 students from 5th grade, 3 from 7th grade, and 5 from 8th grade. After a barrage of tough trivial questions, the top ten was narrowed down to the final two; eighth graders Micah Brighton and Taylor Lawing.
The two students answered a series of questions, and the student with the most correct answer was declared the champion. The winner of our school-level Geography Bee this year was Micah Brighton!
Many more exciting things are happening every day at Northside Christian Academy, from our #2 ranked Basketball team in the Sweet 16, our 9th grade girls Basketball phenom, our Nationally ranked Wrestler, our Fine Arts performances in our community and at home, to our numerous articles regrading our school, coaches, and technology improvements. We are proud of our school and are thankful for the many blessings the Lord has brought our way this year.
I can’t wait to see what great things the Lord has for us in 2012!
