2015 District Individual Speech

date 02/27/2015 author Melissa Green category Uncategorized comment Leave a comment

Don't forget that District Individual Speech in Clear Lake is tomorrow!  Be sure you bring all of your materials with you, dress appropriately, and money to eat!

We have 23 students and 30 events.  There is a better than average chance that Mrs. Bock and I will not be able to be with you at your competition.  Be sure to keep your judges sheet with you and DO NOT lose it!

Remember that we are guests at Clear Lake tomorrow.  Behave like young ladies and gentleman, remember to be quiet in the hallways, pick up your trash, and be kind.  Treat others as you would want to be treated and remember to support your fellow competitors and show true Bronco sportsmanship.

Visitors and spectators are asked to provide a $3.00 entry fee.  Programs are available for $1.00 at the door.   Remember that contest center can run ahead of schedule and they will remain that way.  To be safe arrive at least 10 minutes before the performance you wish to see.

Good luck competitors!  Remember that our bus leaves PROMPTLY at 6:00 AM.  If you are not on the bus, you will be left behind.

Congratulations Large Group Speech!

As stated earlier, our Large Group Speech team competed in State Competition in the areas of Reader's Theatre & Group Improvisation.  Each group earned a collective Division II rating by earning two II ratings and a I rating from the three judges.

Although our 2015 Large Group competitions are completed, we are very proud of our students and their hard work.  In our first year of Large Group competition, we took 50% of our teams to State Competition where they competed among the best of the best and managed their best performances. 

We are truly lucky to have exceptional students in our speech program here at Belmond-Klemme.  We look forward to next year and expanding this program!

Be sure to stay tuned to Bronco Speech as now we begin the Individual Speech Competition!  On February 28th we take 30 events and 23 students to District Competition at Clear Lake High School!  As soon as we have time spots, we will let you know!
