Damascus Middle School Students Awarded in 4-H Dramatic Reading

Damascus Middle School 4-H members recently competed in the 4-H Dramatic Reading contest!  Twenty-five members from the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades performed pieces from their choice of literature.  Each participant was given 2-3 minutes to read from his/her favorite book, story, or poem and was awarded points for introducing the piece, using tone and emphasis, maintaining good speed and rhythm, and using facial expression and body language.  The purpose of this program is to help students build better oral language skills when communicating to a group.  Congratulations to MJ M. for receiving a red ribbon and to the following students who received blue ribbons:  Angelina A., Chanzy B., Matthew B., Luke B., Raelin B., Emily C., Caleb C., Rily C., Ashley D., Emily H., Tristan H., Tahlor M., Sadie M., Lauryn M., Levi S., Amanda S., Rylee S., Ashley S., Carley T., Mia T., Molly T., Addie W., Seth W., and Pearl W.  Blue ribbon winners may represent DMS at the county competition in March!
