LM Speech Team Finishes First

Just In…La Mariposa wins the 1st Place Large School Team Award!

More than fifty La Mariposa Tigers competed Monday in the annual PVEF 3rd Grade Speech Tournament.  Every LM third grader prepared a speech to give in front of their class and 40% were chosen to  be a part of the speech team and move on to city-wide tournament where 13 schools were represented.  The team has been practicing together during lunch for two weeks.  Students participated in one of four categories:  Storytelling, Poetry, Expos/Demo, or Dual.  Learn more about the categories…

La Mariposa is proud of the hard work and dedication of all of our Speech Tigers.  Congratulations to yesterdays winners:

Director’s Award:  Hailey J. with her storytelling speech “Paper Bag Princess”.  She was the only competitor out of 284 with a perfect score!

  • 1st Place, Storytelling:  Edison H.
  • 2nd Place, Storytelling: Sophia P.
  • Finalist, Storytelling: Andrew C.
  • Finalist, Dual: Caitlin F. & Alex M.
  • Finalist, Expository/Demonstration:  Justin X.

Special thanks goes out to LM Coaches Mrs. Hughes, Mrs. Culp, and Dorothy Hanchey and the third grade teaching team for encouraging all our 3rd graders to do something most people are afraid of!

Huge thanks to PVEF for sponsoring the 3rd Grade Speech Tournament along with their other educational programs:  Robotics (FLL and Jr FLL), Cinemagic, and Innovation Grants.  Learn more about PVEF….
