8th grader Lydia Gambacini and 7th grader Natalie Brennan, both of Southington, were awarded Maxima cum Laude by the American Classical League for their achievement on the Latin I National Latin Exam. The NLE is a prize exam administered annually to over 153,000 middle and high school Latin students.
Mooreland Hill School held its annual Evening of Poetry in the Vance Gymnasium on Thursday, April 23rd. Each student in grades 4-9 recited a poem that he or she had learned and practiced over the course of April to an audience of parents and community members. Students started the process by selecting a poem that had personal meaning to them. With the help of English faculty members Bob Borden and Beth Williams, students worked both on memorizing and fully understanding the poems they had selected. Their hard work culminated with this poetry event, a much anticipated Mooreland tradition.
