This past weekend Cockrill’s Youth and Government club competed in the State Conference in Austin, Texas to debate and try and pass their bills into law by the Junior Youth and Government of Texas. They got to visit the Capitol building and debate in the same legislative chambers our Texas Congressmen and women debate actual bills. Evelyn France, Camden Blackson, Gabriel WInslow, Niloo Adib, Kayley Barton and Kody Blackwood all did a phenomenal job, not only getting in front of their peers and presenting their bills but also representing Cockrill Middle School and McKinney ISD outstandingly! Two of our delegates did something not many students did while in Austin, they were two of eleven delegates out of over 650 students to get their bills signed in to law by the Youth Governor! That’s right, only eleven delegates had their bills signed into law and two of them are Cockrill students! Congratulations Kayley Barton and Camden Blackson! Kayley Barton was also Outstanding Legislative Hearing Committee Debaters, which only two were chosen from her committee of almost 20 students. Kayley also won Distinguished Delegate of Duran House which was only 8 students out of about 100! You all did such an amazing things, especially your karaoke of Bohemian Rhapsody! Mrs. Perez and Mr. Trenhaile are so proud of you for all your hardwork and dedication!
The CMS cast and crew of 12 Angry Jurors took home 2ND PLACE at our UIL One-Act Play competition on Thursday.
Brayden Lawrence and Emerson Shouse were given All Star Cast awards. Lindsay Kafka and Jonah Weiss got Honorable Mention All Star Cast awards. There are only 12 All star cast awards and 12 honorable awards given out for all eight schools competing. It’s a big accomplishment! Simone Lena got the Tech award for CMS.
Please congratulate the students. All 30 of them worked so hard for this. Mrs. Fox is so proud of all of them!
Mock Trail Competition Results
Cockrill Middle School was excited to send three teams to this year's Collin County Bar Association Mock Trial competition. All MISD teams (fifteen in total) worked hard to prepare to compete against school districts from across the county including Plano, Allen, Leonard, and Princeton.
Thirty teams competed in total, and the competition was stiff. Four teams advanced to the semi-finals on Saturday, and Cockrill was proud to have two of those teams. After the finals were completed, one of CMS's teams came out on top as 2018 Champions. This is Cockrill's first win at this competitive and demanding event.
