Students have been working hard, competing on the school and District level since October. Students are taught on their level of skill and progress through harder lessons as the year progresses, getting them ready for tournaments. Thank you all for your help and support through the past four months. The following are individual and team results:
The 6th grade had quite a surprise this week when Matt Meese of Studio C came to talk with them. He answered qestions about the show, favorite characters, how they come up with skits and other things. By the way, his favorite characters to play are "Scott Sterling" and "The Shoulder Angel". Matt does not usually talk to schools, but we were lucky enough to have his friend, Sabrina Fullmer, as a practicum student in Mrs. Makin's class. He came to us as a friendly favor for her. THANKS MISS FULLMER!!!!!
