Forensics students win first place pennant

Forensics continues to shine at Butler Catholic School!

Forensics provides students with key skills and experience as public speakers in a variety of genres. At BCS, we’ve been able to offer students in grades 5 through 8 a chance to participate as individuals on our Forensics teams.

Students had their first Forensics meet in early November, after nearly a year and a half of the program being temporarily paused due to COVID-19 precautions. Despite the hiatus, our team is stronger than ever!

After earning the first place pennant at the Nov. 6 meet, our students had a repeat performance at their Jan. 8 competition. Hosted by BCS, students participated in the event with Forensics teams from Holy Sepulcher, Our Lady of Fatima, Northgate, St. James, and Christ the Divine Teacher.

The event started with morning prayer before students dispersed to classrooms to compete on individual levels. Our 13 students were well-prepared. Their individual ribbons resulted in BCS having the over-all best score of the meet.

Despite the challenges the school year presents, we continue to be inspired by the hard work and patience our students exhibit in and outside the classroom. We’re blessed to teach such industrious learners!
