The Debate Team is for 7th and 8th grade students and is led by Mr. Staab, Middle School Social Studies teacher.
Students will learn important skills that will help them with gathering research, crafting & defending arguments, and understanding the implications of their arguments. Additionally, students will be exposed to a variety of current events and perhaps most importantly gain confidence in themselves and their speaking.
Interested 7th and 8th graders are welcome to attend an informational meeting, which will be announced by Mr. Staab.
“Debate had an impact on me by shaping me, teaching me, and guiding me. Most of the time you are researching, writing, and perfecting your arguments, preparing for the competition. You sculpt relationships with your partners, learning one another’s strengths and weaknesses to the point that you are able to build off of them. You learn to rely on each other, as well as communicate together, knowing that it is only when you work together that you can accomplish your goals. This journey also teaches you to work with confidence, not backing down at the first mention of a threat or difficulty. In addition, at the actual competition, you master the ability to work under pressure, even creating major components of your argument on the spot. In the end, it does not matter if you win the debate, but that you have made progress and have had fun.” – Seventh Grade student

Greenfield’s Rock Band is an after school club that introduces students to the creativity of playing in their own rock band. Students will learn to play and perform guitar, drums, bass guitar, and to sing rock music. This includes (but is not limited to) how to set up and tune a guitar, set up a drum set, use a PA system, watch and listen for tones and pitch, work as a team, practice, collaborate on new ideas, listen, and eventually learn how to set up a performance.
The club will meet each Tuesday (date TBD) from 3 – 4:30pm. It is open to students in 5th to 8th grade. Space is very limited so there will be try-outs held in order to join. Information about the club and how to join is found here.
Must submit form (and essay!) by October 25 @ 3pm to Mr. Reo
