North Middle Spelling Bee Winner

North Middle spelling bee winner is photographed wearing a medal. On January 12, 41 students from North Middle School competed in the school’s annual spelling bee. Contestants from grades 6–8 earned a spot in the school-wide event by winning their respective classroom-level spelling bee in December.

This year’s contest was held through Zoom Webinar and live-streamed throughout the building so students could watch from their classrooms and remote locations in real-time. Eighth-grader Joy Wei won the North Middle spelling bee and will advance to the next stage of the competition to test her skills against other middle school spelling bee winners across Long Island.​
