Last month, PCS Latin II students sat for the annual National Latin Exam (NLE) “a test given annually to Latin students across the United States and around the world. The NLE is not meant to be a competition but rather an opportunity for students to receive reinforcement and recognition for their accomplishments in the classroom. Depending upon their score, students may earn certificates, medals, and may even qualify for scholarships.” (nle.org)

Aiden Bonjernoor (10th grade) achieved the cum laude award;
Olivia Holmstedt (10th grade) and Conall McClelland (11th grade) achieved the magna cum laude; and
Joseph Paynter (10th grade) and Caden Schroder (11th grade) won silver medals and the maxima cum laude award - Joseph and Caden were only one point away from winning gold medals!
Latin teacher Mrs. Rachel Humphrey shares, “I am so proud of all the students in the class who worked so hard to prepare for this year's exam. They are a really fun group - we are learning a lot [and] we are laughing a lot too!”
The students admitted amidst laughter, that their success was because they took time to study and answer all the exam questions.
Congratulations – we’re proud of you all!
