Our tournament this weekend is at Eden Prairie HS! Thank you to the parents who have signed up for judging! We still need a lot more judges for the season so please check your calendars and consider spending a day helping us out! You can sign up using this link! Judging Sign Up.
I wanted to make a note that all speech tournaments are open to the public. If you want to come see your student perform, you are very welcome to (with their permission first – don’t make them more nervous)!
6:50 am – meet at BHS
9:00 am – Round 1
10:30 am – Round 2
12:00 pm – Round 3
2:20 pm – Finals
Awards were not scheduled a time but I would expect that would start between 4 and 4:30. If you watch rounds or are judging, I suggest you DON’T go to awards. They are the longest event in human history. Ask your kid – there is little exaggeration here.
6:00 pm – Home
I would expect to get back to BHS around 6 but I can’t guarantee anything with that. I’ll have students call for rides about 10-15 minutes out from the school.
We’ve got fundraisers coming up! NEXT Friday is our Cub fundraiser! Students are required to sign up for a time slot unless they have a prior conflict that they discuss with me. Cub Fundraiser Sign Up
A week from Monday (February 4) is our Chipotle fundraiser!! Get everyone you’ve ever met to eat at Chipotle that night between 4 and 8 and say they’re with Burnsville Speech! A quick reminder on that: online orders don’t count… 🙁
We have a few students who were interested in running our social media pages for our speech team this year so we now have both an instagram and a twitter! follow us @burnsvillespeechteam on instagram and @bhsspeechteam on twitter! I’ll be tweeting out live results from the tournaments if you’d like to follow us! We have plans for a FB page so be patient on that!
See? They’re getting shorter! (I’m probably forgetting something…)
So let me know if you have any questions!
