Speech Competition Update

Assalam Alaikum Parents,

    We have started researching for the speech competition and it would be helpful if you can help your child find resources and facts to help them write their speech. I have given students a package where we read how to write a speech and we brainstormed topics as a class. We will use the next couple of days to go to the computer lab and research. I highly suggest that students go to the library (whether it be the school library or public library) to find books on their topic. JazakAllah-Khairan for all your support.
