King for a Day oratorical contest
During break, a number of 8 grade students participated in the King for a Day oratorical contest. The students practiced and memorized a one and a half to two minute speech or poem exemplifying the African American experience. I am proud to announce that Rayhana Choudhury, Aleksandra Losada, Meabh McDonnell and Shenny Mejia Campos all received an honorable mention. I am also happy to announce that Samantha Ares placed 3rd and David Ghorbrial placed 2nd among all the 8th grade students that participated. Congratulations to all on a job well done!
