Speech and Debate performing at Panera
Next Tuesday, January 27th, the Speech and Debate team is very excited to invite you to attend our Showcase night at Panera Bread in Gig Harbor. Starting at 5:30, the team will be presenting a variety of speeches and interpretations from this season. We expect the performances to finish sometime between 7:30 and 8:00 PM. This is a great opportunity to see the great things our students are doing.
Additionally, if you bring the attached flyer in hard copy or electronic form and show it at the counter, Panera will give the Speech and Debate boosters a portion of what you spend. The fundraiser portion of the night lasts from 4:00 to 8:00 PM, so even if you can't come to watch the kids perform, you can still support the team! You can also stop by and buy some bagels or other baked goods if you don't have time to eat dinner! Click here for the flyer.
