Dear Parents and Students,
Oral Interpretation is a dramatic presentation of a poem or short story. Students interested in trying out for the Maple Creek Peach Blossom Individual Oral Interpretation Team (grades 1-6) need to complete and return the permission slip below to Room K2 by Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
Tryouts will be held afterschool on Friday, January 14, 2022. On that day, students need to meet in Room K2 by 3:10. We should be finished by approximately 4:00. Students will be judged on the following criteria: memorization, eye contact, expression, voice projection, poise, speed, and gestures. No props are allowed. One (or possibly two) students from each grade level will be selected to represent Maple Creek at the 2022 C.S.U.F. Peach Blossom Festival in March! (Date to be determined.) Please note that the students will be chosen to either perform an individual or possibly duo presentation at the facilitator’s discretion.
If selected for the Individual Team, representatives will be expected to attend ALL practices on designated days beginning Monday, January 24th. Practices will be as follows:
- Representatives for grades 1-3 will practice on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 7:30 a.m. in Room K2.
- Representatives for grades 4-6 will practice on Monday and Thursday mornings at 7:30 a.m. in Room K2.
If you have any questions, I can be reached at 327-7300.
