The Speech Coaching system is amazing! Thanks to Mrs. Koch for inventing and setting it all up for us! This from her:
Hi All! Please read through the following notes and announcements from last week on speech coaching and see the following Sign-Up Genius link:
-All parents are expected to coach each week in a pre-assigned room. If you know you will be absent in advance please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are last minute sick/absent please text me at 469-450-1348 and I can adjust the schedule. We will be rotating everyone weekly, but please be prepared to be flexible!
-Before Thanksgiving, we will be running four 15-minute slots. Please keep your room running on time to be fair to everyone. Students should enter the room they are signed up for even if coaching is going on. Please wrap up very quickly and move on, we will have more generous time later in the season.
-Last week we did not use rooms 8 and 10 on the other side of the building, but this week we should be able to.
-Students! Please sign up for a maximum of 2 speeches, if there are any open spots you can add more on Thursday. Feel free to sit quietly in any of the rooms to experience more!
-Extemp: The 3:30 slot is reserved for the extemp.
Junior parents! Please type your child’s script for his/her Interp. Also, begin writing an Informative Speech. (This is a Platform Speech.) I recommend that it be on a topic you are already studying for school and your child finds interesting. We would like to begin having coaching time for Juniors, but they need to have a speech that they are memorizing. Thank you! Your kids are awesome!
Worldview Question of the Week
