CAVSA LATET, VIS NOTISSIMA
This blog will record the deeds and accomplishments of the 2023 Governor's Latin Academy. Once we have officers, the Aediles will chronicle our journey. Until then, the staff will update you on what we are doing to prepare for your arrival in June. We are so excited to meet you and begin, but also there is still so much to do!
We held our annual staff meeting this past weekend via Zoom. Magistra McIntire and I were actually at RMC to clean up our storage closet and tighten up the inventory. Spreadsheets for days!!!!
We discussed our classes, electives, field trips, movies, immersion activities, province groupings, binders, and most importantly, how we can make this experience entirely unforgettable for you.
You will be hearing from other staff members over the next few weeks, and from me a lot more both on the blog and via email. I hope the rest of your school year is productive, so that you can prepare yourself for three amazing weeks of classical civilization and languages.
