Cambridge Latin Students Chosen for Governor's Honors State Interviews!

Last month, Amy Li and Muhammad Arethusa (Latin III Honors level) competed at the Fulton County level for the opportunity to interview at State Governor's Honors Interviews in February. There were 20 Fulton County students, and only four were chosen on October 27th. Students had to read a passage in Latin to a panel of judges with correct pronunciation, articulation, and rhetoric, take a reading comprehension test, write a Latin composition, and answer interview questions. The Latin Program is very proud of these two students. They were the only students in the Cambridge World Languages Program to be chosen for this prestigious honor! Good luck to Amy and Muhammad as they prepare for the State Governor's Honors Interviews!

Preparing for Midterm Finals!

Vocabulary Vocabulary Vocabulary!

Please encourage your student to go ahead and start studying cumulative vocabulary for the Midterm Final. I know it seems very early, but 10-15 minutes a day will make a huge difference in their performance on the Midterm Final!

Makeup Work and Recovery

The World Languages Department at Cambridge has a very generous recovery policy. Please encourage your student to makeup missed work and recover assessments as quickly as possible. The end of the semester is approaching and all grades are final at the end of the semester. There are also many opportunities to get extra help. I am available in the mornings and afternoon by appointment, and we also have upper level students who are willing to tutor. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns!
