Hey everyone! As anybody with experience on DDT can attest to, there are always a lot of really long dead periods on the board, most especially during the summer. Due to this, I wanted to get some conversations going, and I figured summer progress and team goals is a great place to start! For Morton, this year is definitely being handled differently than last year, as I learned a lot about trusting kids when they say they’re reading (without being the official coach in-class, I miss out on a lot of the proof I’d be able to see in there). As such, this summer’s focus is just going to be on making sure everybody is actually reading. High hopes for the season, but I’m staying quiet until I see the proof in the pudding smile.gif

How’s everyone else doing? Making good progress? Anybody have amazing/awful recruitment periods this year? Let us know!


I have a ton of plans over the summer, and I'm hoping they actually work! I think the guides (for the most part) are pretty interesting, and I'm really looking forward to this year! I'd like to say that this summer is shaping up to be better and more productive for both me and my team than last year, but it's a bit early to tell! I think the people we recruited this year are all great people, and the team seems to be bonding already, which is important (for me, at least). Granted, the summer just started (It hasn't even been a week yet), so there's a high chance that I'm being far too optimistic. XD

Recruitment is going better than last year, which is good! (I mean, last year, we had to recruit a new varsity two days before region, so almost anything is better!)

Besides that, it's extremely hard to tell how we're going to perform this year, but I'm hoping that the summer goes well!

Any chance y'all will have the depth to support your utterly insane honors division? I've so badly been wanting to see Wakeland stand with the best teams, as last year you and Labiba showed just how much your team is capable of! My H1 from last year (one of the 9k sophomores) is gunning for you, and I can't wait for the season to start! smile.gif

Woah!!! I can’t believe you actually noticed us XD.

I had bigger plans for summer but haven’t really gotten to them yet. Summer break is shorter than usual which I’m not a huge fan of but hopefully I can still get a lot done. The team seems amazing and they’re getting along pretty well! smile.gif I’m really excited for this year, even more than last year!! It’s really helpful to actually know what’s going on biggrin.gif I was *very* lost last year... but the team helped so much last year and I want to return the favor for the newcomers this year. They seem really excited which is always important wink.gif

This year’s topic is amazing and I personally LOVE it! After state, I missed reading the guides - I almost forgot how fun it was biggrin.gif good luck to your team and everyone else who’s studying this summer! Can’t wait for competition season to start!!!

I didn't know where to post this so: Apparently the schools in my area have decided to have a new competition: Hmong Academic Decathlon. Does USAD have a copyright on that term? If so they should send a cease and desist order. How rude to base the name of your new competition after one that has been established for so long. Somebody connected should reach out to USAD and check into this underhanded theft taking place in Fresno County.

Hi, my name’s Labiba and I was an honors freshman for the Wakeland AcDec team this year. I had a lot of fun and I cannot wait for the next few years. I am so excited and honored to be a part of this amazing program! happy.gif

You're a freshman?? Wow. You've got a great three years ahead (as does Wakeland) if you can score like that as a freshman.

Thank you so much! I really hope we can do as amazing as y’all. Your score was amazing - wish you all my luck at nationals!
