Another AMAZING Oratorical Fest
The MLK, Jr. Oratorical Fest was simply awesome! HBO came from NYC and filmed at JM for a total of three days. The producer and crew were very impressed with our participants and the audience. It took great courage for the participants to speak in front of hundreds of people and they all did it, even with the added pressure of being filmed. Bravo!
Four students will represent JM at the OUSD Regional Competition on Feb. 5th: Maya Hollinger-Miles, grade 4; Tucker Eddy, Donovan Edwards, and Perry Kissam, all grade 5. These students wrote their own pieces, or in the case of Perry, modified a published poem with her own writing. We wish them well on the 5th.
