Saturday afternoon Hamm presented to members of the HUSD school board and Superintendent Dobbs. He did an outstanding job and really showcased what an amazing community we have here at King. He did share some of the issues students say they face at our school, but he also spent time outlining all of the positive things he and other students see here. His presentation made me proud to be a King staff member.
MLK Students Shine at Oratorical Fest
On Friday the 2lst of March King Middle School students not only made us proud, they scored big for MLK with an exceedingly strong performance at the annual Oratorical Fest. The Cobras took first and second place at the public speaking completion held at Chabot College. 8th grader Shyh Saenz won first prize, and 7th grader Darius Smith won second prize in the middle school category. 7th grader Kaitlyn Duff persevered over her shyness and stage fright by completing a compelling speech on what she loves about the city of Hayward. All three contestants delivered impassioned and articulate speeches. Our own AP, Marlon Simpson, did a spectacular job emceeing the ceremonies. Overall, it could not have been any better for the Cobras!
