It was a sea of colorful togas and tunics as Latin students in Grades 7-12 were high in spirit as they spent the day at Holiday Hill for Connecticut State Latin Day, an immersive event where students from all over the state participate in activities and presentations inspired by the classics.
With Latin teachers Stephanie Spaulding and Alison Orlebeke, students enjoyed a full day of activities such as academic contests where they were quizzed on mythology, grammar, geography, and more along with crafts, presentations, athletic competitions, and project viewing.
“Our students had a great day gathering with around 1,500 Latin students and teachers from around the state,” noted Ms. Spaulding. “They enjoyed creating Roman projects and showing off their skill at the academic contests.”
