Meet Expectations

  • Dress appropriately:  Written events wear UIL shirt and attire appropriate to our dress code.  Speaking events should wear clothing appropriate to a professional working environment.

  • Be on time for the bus.

  • Prepare for competition - no phones, games, playing until after you have competed. 

  • Pick up after yourself.  Throw food and beverage garbage away.  This includes the bus used to transport us to and from competition sites.

  • Put pens, pencils, dictionaries, practice materials, tests and critique sheets away.  You are representing our school. Represent it with PRIDE!

  • Review your tests, critique sheets and set goals for improvement.  Talk with your coach about improving.

  • Maintain proper demeanor at the competition site (i.e.whisper in halls outside of speaking events; treat other competitors politely).
