Notae Latinae (Latin Notes)

December 15th, 2021

Gloria in altissimis Deo, et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.

Thank you to our 8th grade Latin students for sharing the Nativity story from Luke 2 yesterday. We hope to share a video version with families.

Every year, our upper-grade Latin students have the opportunity to take two national exams. Those in 5th-8th may take the National Mythology Exam in February. Though this test is optional, all 24 students who are eligible have signed up to take it! (Optime, discipuli!) Students in 6th-8th grade will also take the National Latin Exam in March, a standardized test which covers Latin grammar and usage as well as Roman culture, history, and mythology.

Mrs. Tellinghuisen will help students prepare for both these exams in class, though students who wish to study on their own are encouraged to do so. Watch for an email in early January with study tips, book resources, and links to NLE practice exams. Please note that scores received do not impact Latin class grades.
