fun with latin

A Visit to D.C.

Regents Academy Latin teacher Lara Sowell recently visited Washington, D.C., in service to the National Federation of the Blind. While there she visited the office of our U.S. Representative and friend, the Hon. Louie Gohmert. If you look closely, you can see a Regents pennant on the wall.

Thank you for your service, Mrs. Sowell!

What … Me? … Latin?

Something very new for most parents whose children begin at a classical school is Latin. Why do we teach Latin? Why should students learn Latin? And most importantly, how can our children succeed at Latin?

Cheryl Lowe at Memoria Press offers some excellent insight in response to this last question. Let me recommend to you her article “Four Principles of Latin Study.” These are principles to guide a Latin program, but they are also useful for parents who want to help their children succeed at learning this essential language.

Please follow the link and read her helpful article.
