January Update

Welcome Back!

I am so glad that the second semester has started! We are going to be doing a lot this semester and I am super excited! We are all going to be taking the National Latin Exam the second week of March. It is a national exam that will give you the opportunity to test your Latin skills against thousands of students around the country to win medals and certificates (and sometimes even money!!) AND give you practice for the SLO at the end of the year! Other upcoming events are the Rome Trip Interest Meeting and State Convention!

Keep reading for more information!

Convention Details

This year, the GJCL State Latin Convention is April 15-17 at Rock Eagle 4-H Camp in Eatonton, GA.

The cost for convention is $130 and the money is due to me NO LATER THAN March 9, 2016, because I have to send it off to the state. It is imperative that you reserve your spot as early as possible, because there is limited space and I don't want you to get denied because they ran out of beds.

The convention website for 2016 will be published on February 1, 2016. Last years website is still up and has much of the same information. The 2015 FAX (Convention Handbook) has very important and useful information about convention, what happens, what you can win(lots and lots of medals, ribbons, and certificates- GREAT for college applications and job applications), and what you get.

We will leave school on April 15 and come back around 1-2 on Sunday, April 17. We will be staying in cabins and dinner 4/14- breakfast 4/17 are included.

State Convention is one of the most fun things you can do in high school! It is a weekend hanging out and competing with 1100 other high schoolers from around Georgia who all take Latin! If you have any questions, please ask me or a Latin II student who has been before!
