Middle School Debate

The week before spring break, the 7th and 8th grade were faced with a very large task:  Research and put together strong arguments for the Eracism debate.  All the students contributed to the research process, and three of the students (Jackson, Jared, and Lawrence) were the speakers for Country Day.  Many hours were put into crafting strong arguments with excellent evidence.  This week the judges announced the scores and the winner.  I am pleased to announce that Country Day School was the winner of round 1 debates!  The students did an outstanding job of working together and accomplishing a victory.  The 5th and 6th graders also participated by listening to the debates and being a great support system.  A big thank you to Ms. Probst in helping the 7th/8th graders with the research material. Thank you so much to the amazing Upper School students and the supporting teachers.
