AP Latin/4H Summer Work

Salvete Omnes!

I hope everyone is having a great summer and enjoying some time away from their studies.  Just as a reminder for anyone in AP Latin and Latin 4 Honors – we will have a test on Julius Caesar’s De Bello Gallico at the end of August.  The test is open note.  You summer work, therefore, is to read De Bello Gallico in English (!) and take notes about the text.  Be especially careful to know the context and importance of the proper nouns throughout – especially Caesar’s lieutenants and the various Gallic tribes.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in August.  Until then, get out there and have some fun!

Valete,

Alex Marsh

The Georgia Junior Classical League State Convention – better known as LatinCON – is right around the corner.  Twenty four Milton students will join 2000 students from all over Georgia to compete in all things Classical: art, vocabulary, drama, history, grammar, even chariot racing!  There is a mandatory meeting on Wednesday for all students attending.  The officers will be reviewing our 45 second introduction at the convention, our plans for the parade, and our cheers for the spirit competition.  Mr. Marsh will be reviewing the schedule, determining who are our political correspondents, explaining our community service project, and arranging the carpools.  It is going to be a busy day, Wednesday, so please be on time.  The morning session is from 7:45 to 8:15, the afternoon session if from 3:45 to 4:15.  Attendees need only attend one session.
