The Horizon Debate Team meets every Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 7 a.m. until 7:45 a.m.
Seth Parsloe is the debate coach.
It takes commitment to be a debater and the rewards are great! Debaters experience impromptu speaking, memorization, speaking well in front of groups and writing cohesive, persuasive cases. Debate is a challenging activity using higher level thinking strategies. It is not “easy”, so we encourage students to continue accepting the challenge because they ultimately gain so much confidence and pride.
Usually there is a tournament at the end of May involving all the middle schools in Central Valley School District.
