This past Sunday, January 21st marked the largest tournament of the Massachusetts Middle School Speech League (MMSSL) season at Shrewsbury with 379 students competing from 13 different schools.
The Pike Speech Team represented our school in strong fashion with 32 students competing with some entering into two speech events. Ten Pike students graced the stage to receive awards (see results below). All of our speech team students should be proud! Many thanks to our Pike speech coaches and outstanding parent judges.Great work!
We are looking forward to hosting the MMSSL at The Pike School Stand Up for Speech Tournament on Sunday, February 4th. Go Pike!
