This year’s North Hills Spelling Bee was one for the ages. After an intense first round, we ended with our champion, Darsh Patel, and runner-up, Manreet Chadha. Unfortunately, both bee winners have a prior commitment on the day of the regional bee and cannot represent North Hills at the regional bee. After another intense round (the first time in institutional memory we have run two rounds), we arrived with our winner, Lael Larrious-Lartey, and runner-up, Mihir Shah. Lael’s winning word was “malcontent” and he will represent North Hills at the regional bee on March 2 at Oakland University. Go Lael!

Dear North Hills School Community:

What a week!  On Tuesday night, our 7th and 8th Grade Band and Orchestra students participated in a clinic and concert.  I was so proud of both groups - what tremendous sound and teamwork!  Thank you to the band (Alan Posner) and orchestra (Sean Brennan) clinicians for working with our students and of course a special thank you to Mrs. Lucas (NH band director) and Mr. Karpinsky (NH orchestra director) for all they do to support our students.  Wednesday was Group Picture Day!  I would like to personally thank all of our volunteers and staff for helping to organize our group pictures. 

Mr. Rubel
