Congratulations go out to five Speech and Debate team members from Kentridge High School for winning five "Superior" Awards at the two-day Gig Harbor High School Invitational Tournament October 24-25.

Of note, this dedicated group gave up precious "prep and primp" time others enjoyed
to prepare for the Saturday evening Homecoming Dance. We hope these scholars were able to also return home in time to enjoy those festivities, as they're also a part of the greater Kentridge Team.

Winners of Superior Awards and Categories include:Trophy

Satinder Haer, Oratory

Corey Jaenicke, Expository Speaking

Manpreet Sandhu, Impromptu Speaking

Satinder Haer, Editorial Commentary

Arjun Gupta, Extemporaneous Speaking

To a not-so-silent group of hard-working Chargers, your efforts are recognized for the time it takes to prepare for these events and the courage and skill required to "deliver"
at the top of your group!

Kentridge Off-Campus Fight Results
in Mega-Suspension

October 2, 2008
0 Comments

Last week almost 50 students were suspended because they watched a fight between two girls on September 25. The fight took place after school off the grounds of Kentridge High School.

So why were 50 students suspended?

Because the fight was recorded and published on YouTube, those that were a part
of this "illegal" event were documented.

Not only was the fight between the two recorded, but bystanders watching the fight were also recorded.

Unfortunately, bystanders weren't trying to stop the fight, and Kent School District spokesperson Becky Hanks told a local news reporter that if you are present at a fight, you're in essence, encouraging the behavior.

Word is that all the students received some sort of suspension ranging from three to five days.

Apparently an argument between the two occured earlier that day at school and was directly related to the fight after school. This connection is what allows the District to extend its discipline policies beyond the campus grounds.

What do you think?
