7th Grade Focus class is done with competition pieces and we are moving on to different types of speeches: Introductory, Persuasive, and Informative. Those students that competed in SCSTA's drama competition did an excellent job! We are especially proud of Julia Goff and Rachel Gilmer winning 1st place in Duet Improvisation, Kaylin-Mahal Smith for 2nd place in Storytelling, and Julia Goff and Audrey Waters winning 3rd place in Musical Theatre! We had 8th graders place as well, and many fantastic adjudications! I am so proud of the students that participated and hope they plan on attending to compete again next year!
