Topic for the Speech Writers

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Thursday, May 16, 2013,
Calling all interested speech givers:  Here is the topic for your speech:

"My Favorite Elementary Memories, My New Opportunities"

Please write your essay in 150 to 200 words.  The title should be the theme listed above.  I loved that Merrina said she was going to "write from her heart".  I do think that is the object and the point.  Go for it if you are interested BUT remember that only 1 5th grade girl and 1 5th grade boy will win. 

Have a good evening.  Be ready to work hard on math tomorrow....
