Dominating the Debate Circuit - LR Central At It Again

          

Please help us congratulate sisters and LRCH debaters, Juliette Jung and Christina Jung, for securing their first bid to the National Tournament of Champions at the University of Texas Longhorn Classic in December 2016! The Jungs finished prelims 5-1 and entered eliminations as the 3rd seed. They defeated Westwood (Austin, Texas) in the bid round. LRCH will once again represent Arkansas at the TOC in Lexington, Kentucky in April! Back to back qualifiers is historic for Central's program. Additionally, Juliette was TOP SPEAKER out of 192 debaters in the field! Christina was FOURTH! 

Matthew Cole and Chloe Cunningham finished in the Sweet 16 of the tournament, defeating nationally-ranked Jesuit LR (Dallas, Texas) in Double Octafinals and ending their run in a hard-fought 2-1 decision debate against top 5 team LASA MS (Austin, Texas) in Octafinals. Matthew was recognized at 15th Speaker! 

Both teams competed in the prestigious Texas Round Robin following the Longhorn Classic. Central is the only school from Arkansas to ever be invited to this competition. Jung/Jung finished 3rd Place overall in the Round Robin, and Juliette was 2nd Speaker. A Round Robin is an elite competition for eight teams considered among the top teams in the country. Tiger Debate is very excited to be getting this recognition again this year.

LRSD Superintendent Mike Poore Updates Community on Budget and Facilities

November 3, 2016 - The Little Rock School District family embraced a theme at the beginning of this school year that is more important now than ever before – and that is “The Power of Us.”  We are continuing our stakeholder meetings to get input on the budget.  While no decisions have been made regarding possible school closures, the names of five schools that may be impacted by upcoming budget decisions were released:  Carver, Franklin, Hamilton, Wilson, and Woodruff.  It should be emphasized that no final decisions have been made regarding these sites.

Today, Superintendent Poore held a series of information meetings along with a news conference to update school and community leadership on current utilization of our existing facilities. Additionally, parents and staff of the impacted schools also received this information. Superintendent Poore has asked that we make the budget and facilities report available to all on the LRSD.Org web site. 

Please remember these are draft documents that reflect a work in progress, and you still have time to share your input.  Also, please make plans to attend zone meetings that will begin next week – those dates are listed below:
