Congratulations to the following students who participated in the Smithfield Middle school-wide spelling bee:
6th graders: (Aidyn Capps, Justin Artirp, and Tiease Edgerton)
7th grader: (Gavin Nguyen)
8th Graders: (Dalvin Richardson, Tyriq Glenn, and Omarii Bethea).
This year's words were especially challenging. Eighth grader, Dalvin Richardson, will represent Smithfield Middle on February 27th at the Johnson County Bee. Tyriq Glenn, also an eighth grader, was the first runner up; if Dalvin is unable to attend the county competition, then Tyriq will represent Smithfield Middle.
