On Wednesday, January 21st, Northeast Middle School hosted schools from across the Twin Cities for the second debate tournament of the season. Students participated in three hour-long rounds of debate, and they ended the evening with a pizza dinner and an awards ceremony. Our own Northeast Nighthawks placed high in the rankings in both the Novice and JV Divisions, earning certificates and medals across the board. The date for the next tournament has not yet been announced.
The Northeast debate team is always looking for students who would like to join! Whether you want to improve your reading skills, gain confidence with public speaking, or develop your ability to think critically about a text, we've got that. Most of all, students report debate to be both academically challenging AND lots of fun! We meet after school on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m. Speak to Mr. Grandys or any of the debate team members for information on joining our winning team!
