Greece & Italy!
Over Spring Break, three world language teachers, Sarah Percival, Katie Claus and Liz Mawhiney took 17 Latin students to Greece and Italy to visit the ancient sites they have learned about or will learn about in Latin class. They are pictured in front of the Parthenon in Athens. In Greece, they visited the ancient city of Delphi and the Temple of Apollo and in Italy, they visited the Vatican Museums and gazed upon the Sistine Chapel. The teachers' goals for the trip were to reinforce what is taught in class and to make the information in the text book come to life. It was great to see students translating Latin from inscriptions on tombs and buildings! 
National German Exam
Madeline Witte, Ellie Bruckner, and Everett Henry received awards as high scorers on the National German Exam for the state of Nebraska.
