Debate Club Meets Debate Team
Several members of the High School debate team (and former LH students: James M., Faith G., and Emily S., along with their coach Mr. Oddo) came to visit our Debate Club. It was great to hear what high school debaters do, and the opportunities that are available to them. It proved to be a wonderful conversation.

Celebrating Solo/Ensemble Competition
On Saturday, February 21, 5th-8th grader band and orchestra students from our District participated in the IGSMA Solo and Ensemble competition at King Lab School. Students spent several months in preparation to be judged on the following criteria: intonation, tone quality, balance and blend, interpretation and musicianship, fluency of technique, rhythmic accuracy, and stage presentation. Many of our students earned ratings of 1 or 2. The following students received a perfect score of 7 and a 1+ rating: Naomi Greene, Joseph Urichima, Andrew Pabst, Laura Trinh, Caroline Lindwall, and Stephanie Sorisho. Congratulations to all of our students for a job well done. These students, along with Rutledge students, were recognized at the March Board meeting.

LH Students + TH Students = 1•3•1
In continuing with SD74's new motto, One District • Three Schools • One Vision (1•3•1), collaboration between Lincoln Hall and Todd Hall happened this week in two academic areas.
Mr. Jones visited all of Dr. J's 1st grade music classes with LH students, Caroline L., Minh L., and Evan H., performing their award-winning solos. They also selected to play music by composers the 1st graders are currently studying. The students enjoyed the performances and asked many questions. The 1st graders were very curious as to how long each student and Mr. Jones has been playing an instrument. Also, they were curious as to how much time each of them spends practicing their instrument daily.
Ms. Lukasiewicz, Todd Hall Art Teacher, brought over a 1st grade Art class to pilot a visit to the LH STEM Lab. The 1st graders are exploring 2- and 3-dimensional qualities. At the STEM Lab, with help from Ms. Stecher and the LH students, the 1st graders were able to learn and talk about how those qualities are transferred into design and engineering, especially with the use of a 3-dimensional printer. It was a great opportunity for the two grade levels to come together and explore! More of these visits will be sure to follow.

Positive or Negative?
The 7th grade Humanities and Social Studies students have been participating in formal debates. Each group was assigned a different explorer from their “Age of Exploration” unit. Some of those explorers included Christopher Columbus, Hernán Cortés, and Vasco da Gama. The debates argued if these explorers have had a positive or negative impact on history. Each positive and negative team had to persuade the students in their classroom and the teacher judges. The students were able to use resources such as bio.com, history.com, nettrekker.com, and encyclopedia Britannica. The teams debated their positive and negative positions that included rebuttals and final arguments.
When each debate concluded, the students in the class were asked which team they supported – the positive or negative team and then a few students stated why they chose the specific team. The teacher judges had the final decision on each winning team.
Congratulations to the students in Ms. Berk's and Mr. Salski’s classes for all their hard work.
