General Club Information
The purpose of Junior Classical League is to promote and encourage the study of Latin, and Roman and Greek culture. It is a social organization designed to build group cooperation; celebrate classical civilization; and encourage participation in local, state, and national events related to Latin studies. Meetings are publicized through announcements, School Fusion class pages, and flyers posted in class and throughout the hallways. This year Latin Club will meet in Room E-144 after school.
