In Forensics, we build self-confidence and oral competency by developing and practicing fundamental public speaking skills. Competitions are held to develop and expand skill. Students can choose from a variety of speaking subjects and styles.
If our practice schedule doesn't work for you, but you're interested in forensics, please meet with Ms. Warnken to discuss alternatives.
No transportation is provided to tournaments. Parents should make arrangements to either carpool or drive their own students to and from tournaments. Students will be expected to sign out with Ms. Warnken after each tournament.
