Yesterday, St. Columba Catholic School hosted their annual spelling bee in our Parish Hall. The 15 contestants represented the top 5 spellers from each middle school class (6th, 7th, and 8th grade). Those spellers had been victorious during their individual class competitions.
After 9 rounds, there was a single representative remaining from each class. It was in the 10th round that Jonathan Nguyen from 6th grade was crowned the 2020 St. Columba Spelling Bee Champion.
Jonathan will represent St. Columba at the San Diego County Spelling Bee on March 19, 2020
