CHOOSING SIDES


Mrs. Wippel and Mrs. Louey's classes participated in a debate.  The debate was centered around the question, "Should trees be cut down?"  The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss, set the stage for the debate.  Mrs. Louey's class represented the "Once-lers", a group advocating the cutting of trees.  Team Lorax, from Mrs. Wippel's class, supported saving trees.  Team Lorax members included Darian Abraham, Giuliana Sadler, Nick Ortiz and Danny Fortin.  While Team Once-ler members included Autumn Clouse, Sean Imbarrato, Ethan Newcomb and Caitlin McGuire.  According to Judge Sheerer, Team Once-ler won the debate.  Congratulations to both teams for presenting clear and concise arguments.
