The Junior Toastmasters is an early morning tradition at Holy Spirit.  Middle school students have the opportunity to attend this optional once a week meeting to improve their public speaking skills.  The meetings last an hour a week for 3 months.  The participants move through each job: toastmaster, timer, joke master, speaker etc. learning by participating.  The meetings are lead by volunteers from community Toastmasters groups and one of our middle school teachers.  At the end of the year, there is a banquet for all participants.  This is a great program for our students allowing them to gain confidence and leadership skills.
