MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS – Grades 5-8, Wednesday, April 12, 2017
BOOK FAIR IS OPEN UNTIL 6PM TODAY- The spring book fair is today until 6PM. It is also open tomorrow during school hours.
SPEECH CONTEST FINALS – Last night's 7th grade speech contest was absolutely amazing. The talented and well rehearsed presenters kept the audience entertained and awed. First place was earned by Noe Burmeister, second place went to Sunny Wight, third place to Georgianna Newenham, and Fiona Allen is our grade 7 alternate.
Ms Mattila and Ms Higgins want to thank all the participants and want to let you know how proud we are of you and your hard work. A special thanks goes to our local stage professional and Broadway bound, Mr. Stevenson. His expertise and skill taught our speakers how to perform their speeches at a level far beyond the typical classroom presentation.
Thank you to Mr. Stackpole for his precise timing, to Mr. Libby for his excellent MC skills, to Mrs. Stackpole for all the snack and drink materials, and to Mrs. Gallagher for her help with set up and her work with the judges.
