Speech and Debate update from Ms. Pearson:

The Speech and Debate team is crushing it right now! The kids are good to go for the NSDA league Nationals in June, and this weekend they set their sights on the OSAA league State Competition.

On Saturday, April 2nd, 11 Speech and Debate students showed up at the school to compete in OSAA districts in hopes to make it to State at Western Oregon in a couple of weeks.

The following students competed in Individual Events:

Maddie Pahls, Radio and Inform

Hallie Minkler, POI, and ADS

Maya Tulles, Poetry and ADS

MacKenzie Williams, Prose

Felicia McMillen, Impromptu and Duo

Kenny McMillen, Duo, and Congress

CJ Kilcoyne, Radio

Ben Stufflebeam, DI

Tristan Radcliffe, DI, and Impromptu

Riley Cook, Impromptu

Daniel Cabrera, DI and HI

The Speech Team is truly a big family, and there is something really amazing about watching the way these kids support each other. They looked out for, cheered on, and encouraged each other every step of the way. When they weren't actively competing, the kids were practicing their pieces and getting feedback on how to be even better than they were the round before.

All of their hard work paid off, and at the end of the day 7 kids qualified to go to state, and another 3 qualified as alternates!

Heading to OSAA State are:

Maddie P for Inform and Radio

Hallie M for ADS and POI

Kenny M for Congress

Tristan R for Impromptu

Riley C for Impromptu

Daniel C for DI and HI

Ben S for DI

Our first Alternates:

Maya T for Poetry and ADS

MacKenzie W for Prose

Felicia McMillen for Duo

Mr. Curtis and I could not be more proud of the hard work and dedication these kids put into their pieces! We are excited to take them to State on April 21st and see what comes next!

Student Hand Book

Please take some time to review our student handbook with your student. We would particularly like you to remind your student of our expectations with regards to cell phones and appropriate technology use.

Cell Phone Policy

Just a reminder, students are not allowed to have cell phones out during school hours. We require them to be kept off and in their locker or backpack during the day. This includes breaks and at lunch. Please encourage your student to come to the office or their teachers if they have a concern or need help instead of reaching out to you via cell phone during the day. This way we can help make sure that all your student's needs are being met. We have a student phone available in the commons that is always available.
