The 6th-8th grade students have been working for the last few weeks perfecting their speeches for the Modern Woodmen of America's school speech contest! Throughout this process they have considered their topic, writing strategies to engage an audience and speaking strategies. They have spent countless hours writing, revising, editing and practicing for their classroom speech contest. Last Wednesday, after a short snow delay, they participated in their much anticipated contest. I am very excited to announce the following winners (They will move on to the school contest on Wednesday.):
Grade 8: Raist Cotroneo, Will Johnson, and Hunter Flood
Grade 7: Gavin Coffin, Carole Reyes, and Darren Easler
Grade 6: Lucas Gagnon, Emily Gagnon, and Kolten Sargent
The following students were chosen as alternates (They will participate in the school contest in the event one of the other students is absent.):
Grade 7: Lidia Newenham
Grade 6: Tyson Plourde
Congratulations to these and all of the other students! They did a great job!
