Speech

Coaches: Rachel Schieffelbein and Stephanie Copeman

Join us Wednesday April 27 for an Evening of Speech highlighting our seniors and State competitors. 7pm in the Forum room at the high school.

Speech practice every day at 3:30 from January 3rd through the 7th in the speech room. You don’t need to schedule your time this week, just come in to start looking for pieces! Thanks!

Speech practice begins in January. There are thirteen different categories, ranging from informative pieces to poetry. There are several categories where the students write their own piece, and several where they do not. They generally work on the same piece all season and memorization is not required. Practices are held after school Tuesday through Friday, but attendance is flexible. Competitions are every Saturday, February through mid April, but students are not required to participate in every meet. 

What a season. Wow. So incredibly thankful to get to work with my best friend, Stephanie, and these amazing kids. Chatfield tied for third place at State!! This team has exceeded our expectations over and over again with their dedication, talent, and team spirit.

Nick Long took fifth in Storytelling.

Rebecca Copeman took third, and Katelyn Dornack took second in Humorous.

Peyton and Sydney Ellis took second in Duo.
