If you have time between watching #3298 and our upcoming World War II program on Monday night, stop by the school to cheer for the Pipestone Area Speech team during their sub-section meet on Saturday. The first round starts at 10am, with the second round at 11:30 and finals expected to begin at 1:30.

At this point you may asking yourself: what does speech have to do with STEAM? To which I say, communication is an art. Performing is an art. So is writing. For months, these youth (and their un-pictured teammates) have worked hard to mold the written word into something compelling, informative, and artistic.

In short, speech is the basis for understanding an idea and providing a path for others to follow. Without communication, there is no STEAM. And without steam, there is no programming. Lucky for you, we have lots STEAMy activities headed your way.
