Good Audience Skit: Thanks to everyone for helping Kimberly make the skit to teach others about giving specific, considerate and truthful feedback. Part of her responsibilities as a member of the National Student Leadership Council is to support other student leaders. This video will be used to do just that. Check out the link above for more information about the NSLC.

Chapter Showcase: In two weeks we will be delighting family, friends and guests with presentations, games and goodies. Note the time is 6:30 – 8pm, December 13. All students should arrive at 5:45 so we can run through their presentations before our guests arrive.

Please tell Mrs. Hagood if you would like to present one of the speeches you worked on earlier this year or have a new Christmassy one. (Note: all presentations must be memorized and seen in chapter at our next meeting.)

It is suggested that families with last names A-L bring a savory snack and M-Z bring a sweet snack. If you have a favorite that doesn’t fall in that category, please feel free to bring it. NO PEANUTS PLEASE.

Platform Opportunity: Colorado Springs chapters will come together to present Christmas pieces in the park as families wait to see Santa. Because of the season, we can openly talk about Jesus in the context of Christmas so take advantage of this opportunity if possible.
