Our Speech and Debate team went to their very first speech tournament at Peter Burnett Spring Invitationals on May 19. They had such a great experience with their very first speech tournament. There were so many smiling faces throughout the day and our students learned so much!
Competitors included: – Aaruni Gupta – Claire Silva – Daisy Ding – Eva Weisenfeld – Judith Covarruvias – Madeline Lin – Nathan Pruitt – Shivani Bhattacharjya – Suparn Posina – Tevin Ding.
Shivani and Madeline performed a delightful Duo Interpretation called “Cinderella Bigfoot” which landed them in the semi-finals!! Eva won first place in the autobiographical category! We are so proud of every single student that worked hard and were so brave to compete. The speeches were closed, so parents, coaches and other students were not allowed to watch.
We have scheduled a Summit Denali Speech and Debate Showcase on Monday, June 4 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at the Weddell campus. This will give all club members a chance to perform their pieces in front of family and the Summit Denali community and to honor our outstanding mentors from TeachSpeech that have stepped forward to help our team grow and learn.
All Denali Students and Families are welcome to come!
