MLK Oratorical Festival

During the school assembly we celebrate the gift of oratory and honor the immense contribution of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and other leaders. Classes, groups and individuals are invited to recite a poem or speech during a school assembly. Top entrants go on to regional and district final competitions. We need parents to be part of our Oratorical Coaching Team!
