• The Oral Language Festival is a competitive event where students recite and perform an interpretation of a piece of children's literature. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to creatively express their love of literature using dramatic speaking skills.  In addition, students gain confidence to perform for an audience. 
    4th - 8th grade students may compete in one of six categories:
    • Serious Solo
    • Humorous Solo
    • Serious Duo - 2 students
    • Humorous Duo - 2 students
    • Verse Choir - 3 - 6 students
    • Impromptu Speech (District level highest level of competition)


    There will be an Information Night for parents and student on September 13th at 6:00 p.m. A flyer and email will go out a week prior to the meeting. 

    Each school will determine the day of their school competition.
