Today, April 12, the Latin II class attended the 46th Annual Classics Day at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester. Hundreds of students from all around the Northeast take part in this event. Holy Cross undergraduates host popular contests during the day including an art challenge, a costume contest, a manuscript challenge, and, usually, a famed chariot race (though unfortunately not t his year, due to construction on campus). Our new Certamen team is calledDiscipulae Dearum-Students of the Goddesses.

Mid-morning our Latin II students will compete for their first time in the Certamen competition, a multi-round elimination trivia game that centers around Latin grammar, Roman and Greek mythology, Ancient history and literature. Please wish our penguins “Bonam Fortunam!”
