Debate Team Earn Accolades
The following students went to their first after school debate:
Debate: Seirra Mitchell & Matt Hall, Kimrah Tracey & Martina Onyenwe
Speech: Ravensky Lundy, Nyokkie Mclean, Tylan Blades, Kierra Sterling, and Shareece Rose
There were over 600 students representing their individual schools, Each and every Stranahan student did outstanding and represented our school with Dragon pride. Seirra Mitchell and Matt Hall won a debate round. Kierra Sterling and Tylan Blades both placed first in a speech round.
The debate prompts were not easy and the teams had to be ready to debate both the pros and cons. The prompt was: Resolved: On balance, public subsidies for professional athletic organizations in the United States benefit their local communities. Each and every student knew how to present a claim, contention, and citation (all are found in our new common core standards).
Congrats to all Stranahan Debaters!

We regret that Stranahan High and Ft. Lauderdale high were unable to compete at the November 7 Homecoming Football Game due to official scheduling mishap. Many thanks to the Bands and Homecoming committees from both schools for providing entertainment during this disappointing time. Any adults seeking reimbursement for their Admission Ticket to the game should come to SHS Bookkeeper office T-F Nov 18-21 between 11:30-1:00 pm. They must bring their ticket stub and sign auditors log. Students were reimbursed on Friday Nov 14 during their lunch period and Ft Lauderdale High will notify their students regarding reimbursement. Reimbursements not claimed after Friday November 21 will be donated to the Athletic Fund to help defray the costs of the game Thank you for your patience and understanding. Go Dragons. Go Further
