Northport K-8 School has declared a champion in the annual Spelling Bee! Thirty students from grades four through eight participated in a 14- round spelling bee recently with seventh grade Northstar student, Jared Diago, spelling the word microphone correctly to win first place. Second place winner was Kadisha D’Silva and third place was Koral Saarinen. Students brought one student guest from their class to witness the exposition and many parents were present to urge on their students to spelling victory. Jared Diago, pictured in the top row, last student on the right, will continue on to the district Spelling Bee next month.
