Re:                  Plans for the State Debate Tournament


             On Saturday, March 29th, 16 students from the Manchester Essex Debate team will head to the Massachusetts Forensics League State Debate Tournament hosted by Chelmsford High School.  The team will leave at 7:00 AM on Saturday morning from the MERHS parking lot.    

Social Studies teacher Abigail Donnelly will chaperone the trip, along with judges Julie Riordan, Mark Irose, John Kiley and Brian McCormick.  If an emergency develops during the day, call your child’s cell phone or contact Ms. Donnelly.  Students should bring money for lunch and snacks.  

 We will return to MERHS on Saturday evening. For information about our progress and exact arrival time, please call your child’s cell phone.
