Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2000-2001 school year at Rice Middle School! We're going to go to three middle school tournaments and two high school tournaments this year. Our first tournament will be at Rice Middle School on September 16th! You can still participate in this tournament. It will be run like a city champs tournament. We're going to need a lot of parent volunteers for crowd control in the cafeteria and to help man the judge's lounge. Please call me at Rice to volunteer your time- 972-519-8879 ext. 37503.
In tournament class we are currently studying declamation. We are wrapping up that unit this week and will be starting reader's theatre very soon.
Please come practice for your events before or after school. Because we have a tournament class we will be practicing our events in class also.
