HDS Students Score Big at Latin JCL Convention

Ten Harbor Day Latin students had a very eventful weekend. Students traveled to Miramonte High School in Northern California to compete in the JCL State Latin Convention. Harbor Day students enjoyed meeting new friends and engaging in the activities at the convention which included: academic tests, oratory, sports, workshops, STEM challenges, voting for state officers, certamen (a Latin quiz bowl type game), catapult contests, and chariot racing. Miramonte High also made sure the students were entertained by carnival games, laser tag, stargazing (led by our very own Magistra Robinson), escape rooms, and many other games.

To get into the spirit, the team created their own chant:
We will, we will rock you down
Shake you up
Like Mt. Vesuvius
We’ll erupt
Watch out world
Here we come
HDS is # 1!

Students Carson M., Alex W., and Riley H. had a particularly great session winning awards in the slogan contest, as well as academic tests. Riley and Carson also won individual awards based upon the number of points their performances accumulated over the weekend. Additionally, Harbor Day School won 1st place in the spirit competition and 3rd place overall in the middle school small category!\
