Hey students!  Want to travel to Italy & Greece with your 2 favorite Latin teachers?  It is happening in June 2020.  Contact Lisa Mays for more details.
  • There are still a few spots available to join us in Italy and Greece this summer! Students will spend 2 weeks (departing June 11th) traveling the two countries and have the opportunity to visit important sites, landmarks, and museums. We have purposefully selected the destinations and daily activities to create a fast-paced itinerary that provides a multitude of educational experiences while still leaving plenty of time to relax and take in all that Italy & Greece has to offer. The tour will allow travelers to learn about history and art from the pre-Roman to modern eras as well as to experience beautiful scenery. For the full itinerary and current pricing, please visit our tour website: <https://www.explorica.com/inderhees-3531

2019 OJCL Convention Overall Points Champions!

Some random things from convention:

  • Matthew Warden (Summit Treasurer in charge of spirit) led the delegation to a 1st place prize in spirit Fri night.  The theme was the Moana movie, and Matthew was dressed for the part!
  • Ryan gets pied in the face!   State officer Ryan Burns’ jar received the most money for charity, and his reward was a tasty whip cream pie.
  • Carson Hall was one of the participants in the annual ‘OJCL’s Got Talent!’  It is part comedy and part talent.  Carson’s talent is picking locks, and he did this to accompaniment of music while a girl tried to jump rope while on a pogo stick.  All 3 acts received the ‘cookie of approval’ from the judges.
