Good morning Swanson! Today is June 20th and these are today’s announcements:
- Congratulations to Savannah Thompson who was selected to represent Virginia for the novice-level certamen team at the National Junior Classical League Convention in Troy, Alabama, this July. Certamen is the Latin word for “contest” and Savvy will attend the week-long convention (along with thousands of high school Latin students from all around the country) to be part of the VA team competing in quiz-bowl style competitions, answering questions on Latin language and grammar, history, culture and mythology. Savvy is the first Arlington middle schooler ever to attend National Convention!
- Do you still have library books? It is not too late to turn them in. Bring them to the library. If testing is going on, place the books on the cart at the library doors.
- Shopping on Amazon and looking to help Swanson at the same time? Click this link and up to 7% of your purchase total will be donated to the school! Bookmark it for later, or you can always find it on the front page of the Swanson website. We appreciate your help!
