The CVESD Annual Speech Contest is coming up. The speech contest is for students in 4th – 6th grades. All students participate in giving a speech in their classroom and the top students from each class move forward to the school contest (February 2).

From there, one student per grade is selected to represent JL at the District Speech Contest (4th grade – Feb. 28; 5th grade – March 1; 6th grade – March 2).
