Speech/Debate

Mrs. McQueen’s 6th and 7th Grade Public Speaking and Debate class tested the skills and techniques that they have learned this semester with our 2nd and 3rd graders.  Public Relations students visited these classrooms and practiced projecting their voices to an audience, making eye contact, grabbing the attention of an audience with interesting information, and interacting with an audience.  Students read books, taught simple drawings, and even shared how to make fake snow!

This same class was also delighted to have 2 of our Upper School students, Konar Chapman and Katelyn Missey, come and visit. Konar and Katelyn demonstrated a debate that they have worked on in Mrs. Pitt’s class.  Konar and Katelyn debated whether or not they felt that professional athletes salaries are too high.  Mrs. Pitt also shared some of the ways that debates are done in the upper grades.  Students were able to ask questions and loved seeing and hearing the older students.  They were also able to see many of the techniques they’ve learned be demonstrated so well in more experienced debaters.

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
