* Alternates have been selected because their work was outstanding but with only 12 students allowed to attend, I had the excruciating problem of narrowing it down to just 6 per class. I therefore, have alternates just in case one of the 6 students selected can not attend.
This was especially hard this round to judge because there were so many students that had gone to a great extent to prepare.  The judging was also made difficult because of the subject matter.  Student had heart warming stories of helping others and great aspirations of continuing to make an impact in their very bright future.

I am truly honored to have such an outstanding class!

A very special thanks to our Toastmasters who help greatly in class each week.  They will be returning Monday and Tuesday to work with our Finalist and alternates for our March 10 event.

Finally, thank you parents for continuing to encourage your child and telling them the importance of speaking in front of others.

Creditability Lesson 2 -Creditability Lesson 2 - Credit Cards Life can be like a big circle.  In the circle you have a very tiny slice that you can say you know and don't know that you know.  But the majority of the circle is all the stuff that you don't know and don't know you don't know.  This is what makes life so exciting.  You don't know what you will be doing in 5, 7, 10 years from now and what you will know.  We must continually update our learning.  This is also important with relationships.  We don't know the impact we might make in the future that is why relationships are so important.  Your creditability and trustworthiness is very important to those you are around.  Just like when you say you are going to do something and don't it ruins your reputation as does not paying back a loan (credit card debt).  Crossword Puzzle Activity.  http://piggybank.disney.go.com/game/
