Why Debate?

Since there are so many students who are interested in debate this year, I decided that I would attempt to get kids thinking about various issues in our country today. Debate is a healthy way for students to begin to think through tough issues, and thus educate themselves to all sides of an issue.

While I do not plan on making a big deal out of Debate on my website, I do plan on putting some videos on here that can help kids sink their teeth into some topics. Some of the topics I plan on putting on here will deal with global warming, capital punishment, gun control, the theory of evolution, is America a Christian nation?, and more. Students, please do not mistakenly think that these videos represent all viewpoints to a particular issue, or that these videos represent the best arguments for either side.

Is the United States a Christian Nation?

Below are two videos debating the question, "Is the US a Christian Nation?"


All students are required to have a school planner.

- Bible Study is every Monday and Thursday during second lunch in room C-1. Bibles are available.

- We're looking for students to participate in "Nintendo Memories" and "I'm Just Sayin'" ... Let me know if you're interested.
