The 7th & 8th grade Speech Team had a great season, which ended at the City Finals on October 27th! GLA is proud of each and every team member & their coach, DeVon Chinn (7/8 grade ELA teacher), for their hard work and growth throughout the season! Two students earned ribbons at the city level in poetry! Kaitlyn M., 7th grader, won 4th place for her reading of “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe, and Tyesha H., 8th grader, won 1st place for her performance of “Still I Rise” and “Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou.
