D100 ROCKS !!
AWARDED 1ST PLACE TEAM TROPHY!
EACH OF OUR PARTICIPANTS WERE AWARDED A 1ST PLACE RIBBON!
On Saturday , March 8th, a team, comprising of thirty-six 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th grade d100 students , participated in the 28th annual West 40 Speech and Drama Festival that was held at Elmwood Park High School.
Sixteen teams from fourteen different school districts entered the competition.
Students competed in ten different events which includes performances in either a large group, in duets, trio and solos. Judges critiqued the events by judging each performer on his/her individual performance. Points are added up to determine the performer's individual ranking. Then, the scoring points earned in each event are added up to determine eligibility for a team trophy.
Many , many parents, family, friends and former d100 students witnessed outstanding performances from our participants. (one Dad even commented, 'This was as exciting as watching a school's sporting event-maybe even better!")
As for the degree of excitement…THAT says it all!
We coaches like to thank the families and staff members who encouraged these students to practice and to do their very best over these past three months.
