Birthdays and Sagacious Speech Events!

Heading for the postings!.....Where am I?

The week before Thanksgiving found us celebrating our November Birthdays and getting ready for out Speech Event that was to take place on the 22nd. All of the scholars who participated earned NJFL points and if they have brought in their sign up money, the points will be sent in this coming week.

The event ran smoothly and we were pleased with the results. All of the scholars got the taste of competition, and the adrenaline rush of performing for a judge. Hopefully they have gotten the bug and will look forward to the debate competitions coming up in the winter and spring quarters.

Thank you to all the volunteers, judges, and parents who were there to support their scholars and their instructor as we walked through this enlightening exercise. All will get to partake of the duo interpretations at our coffeehouse coming up in February!

This coming week the scholars have two big projects coming due. The book report projects are due on Tuesday, with their three minute presentation as part of the grade. The Number the Stars projects are due on Friday December 2nd.

As soon as we are aware of the date for the Retirement Home, we will get an email out concerning drivers to take us there and back. We are hoping to be participating in that citizenship project sometime next week.

I hope all had a restful break, and the scholars are ready for three weeks of hard work before breaking for
Christmas! :)
