Each year as our SES 8th graders prepare to leave for high school, they must complete a portfolio of assignments designed to help them think both retrospectively, prospectively and introspectively. One of those assignments is a speech that talks about something they believe. Starting after Spring Break, they will begin giving their speeches on M,W,and F mornings during middle school morning meeting, starting at 8:45am (no one is allowed to exit or enter the auditorium when a speech is in progress). If you want a little taste of what’s to come for your child as he/she makes the journey toward 8th grade, come listen to some of the speeches. You will be glad you did. Here is the schedule of speeches. It is subject to change.
