Debate Club for 4th and 5th Graders!

Fall Debate Club will be held once a week after school on Tuesdays at John Hay starting Oct. 19 (for 12 weeks).  Kids will learn and practice debate.  A tournament will be held in January or early February. 

Debate Club is for kids NEW to debate and returning debaters.  Each team will use facts ‘for’ and ‘against’ a kid-relevant topic. This fall, we will be debating whether elementary school students should have homework.  Kids develop skills in note taking, reading, writing, speaking, and critical thinking.  The program is sponsored by Successful Schools in Action (www.schoolsinaction.org).  

Debate Club tuition is $160 and a limited number of scholarships are available.  Online registration opens on September 27 at http://www.schoolsinaction.org.  Questions? Contact Mary at marysteele@schoolsinaction.org.
