MIDDLE SCHOOL SPEECH MEET

We give glory to God for a huge success at the ACSI Middle School Speech Meet, hosted by RCS on March 10.  Our students worked hard, encouraged each other, and shined as they represented their Lord and Rosehill Christian School.  
This competition is valuable for all the students who participate, regardless of how they place.  It encourages kids to step outside their comfort zone, to expand their acting and speaking skills, to enunciate more clearly, and to communicate more effectively.
Our students applauded loudly when each student from any school was called up, and our entire group roared with excitement for the members of our RCS family.  We medaled in every category, and both Abby Turney and Chloe Geil medaled in all four categories in which they competed.
Congratulations to all who participated and a special thanks to the unbelievably supportive parents, who made this day possible.  Without your support and encouragement there is no way we would have had such a successful day.  A HUGE thank you to Mrs Strange for the yeoman's job of organizing the meet, and Mrs. Kim Turney, who was her right hand.  Also Mrs. Barletta for assisting in the tab room, and Mrs. Bartlett for organizing the hospitality suite.  And of course, thank you to the administrators and teachers and other volunteers who helped judge, and high school volunteers who helped make students feel at home and find their way around the school.
