Tuesday & Thursday
Debate will be meeting to prepare high school students to compete at both the local and state level in the Lincoln Douglas and Public Forum debate. The Activity Period allows students to research the topics they will be debating, as well as practice in a collegial atmosphere prior to Saturday tournaments. Students who join the debate team can expect to compete on Saturdays once a month, typically from 7:00am – 5:00pm. The debate season runs from the end of October until the middle of March, culminating with the State Tournament in Springfield, IL from March 16-18. Only the top speakers will be included for the state finals in Springfield. Led by Mr. Herman, English teacher.
