Speeches Part 2

Thanks for your patients in waiting for these videos. It is a bit of a learning curve using the new software but I hope to have all the bugs worked out now. Here is the video from today's speeches. The Assistant Principal came and watched and she was very proud of the students. Personally I thought the students did a great job and I am extremely thrilled with what they accomplished.
