Brain Booster Kits
Midterms 2005

The Latin Club and its hardworking group of moms have worked hard in putting together the Midterm Exam Brain Booster Kits. We made about $100 profit (go us!) in addition to publicizing the club and helping students school-wide study for their exams. The kits were handed out by our gang of moms during the Bermuda Day event the day before exams began. Thank you moms!

VJCL State Convention 2004
November 21-22, 2004

What is there to say of States? Hmmm, the best way to describe it is in a poem:

States is the time for all Latin nerds,
To gather together, in large Latin herds.
They dance and sing and play fun games,
Meeting new friends, learning new names.
Taking tests is half the fun,
Especially when you know the answer to one.
They get together, for two days straight,
And when it is over, for next year, they can't wait.
And at the end of this great event,
Brains tired, and money spent,
They gather once more, to say their farewells,
Latin heaven is over, it's back to the hells.
