Regan Makes Semi's at MASQ Jr

Congratulations to Reagan Kern, a member of the Denfeld Speech Team. Reagan is an 8th grader at Lincoln Patk, who joined the team. She is competing at the National Middle School Tournament that started yesterday and continues thru the week end. It is all virtual with us submitting a taped performance of Reagan’s 10 minute monologue from the book, Mick Harte Was Here, by Barbara Parks. We are so proud of her work ethic and determination. Good luck in this Semi Final round, the top 12 out of 85.

Section 7AA Results

Denfeld Speech Team is advancing two speakers to the MSHSL State Speech Tournament. Junior Tessa Schauer is the Section 7AA Champion in Serious Prose and Sophomore Madeline Watts takes 3rd in Serious Drama. Instead of Saturday 5:00am bus trips we arrived to compete in classrooms at Denfeld. We used IPhones, chrome books and stacks of books to stand in front of a screen to share our stories to others in their schools or homes. It wasn’t ideal and it wasn’t easy but it worked. And we were able to stay safe and keep our coaches, judges and teammates safe! Congratulations to Tessa and Madi, our Denfeld Speech team, our coaches and our Hunter family.
