Wow! Members of our new Speech & Debate Club went to the Winter Warm-Up Tournament at Burnett Middle School - and all 11 left with high marks of excellent or better from the High School Judges. OOS parent and volunteer club leader Beth Martin says highest marks went to Kristine Pashin (GR8) and Eric Brown (GR7) who each received a rating of superior. Kristine for a Poetry/Prose reading, and Eric for his Pet Peeve speech. The other students who participated are: from GR6, Sydney Martin, Ava Hulquist, and Isabelle Shay; from GR7, Desi Lai and Colby Worthington; and from GR8, Helen Ayers, Kiana Ainoa, Julian Shi, and Cordelia Athas. We are very proud of our students, and grateful to Beth Martin for volunteering her time and expertise.
