brookfield east

by aayush agrawal

At Brookfield East, a plethora of fun, competitive, and service activities have taken place. For instance, during our Halloween party, we watched the hilarious movie "Monty Python's Life of Brian" and had a great time catching up with our friends and eating lots of food! We're also holding Certamen practices after school just to relax, learn Latin, and prepare for the upcoming WJCL State Convention. Finally, Latin Club members volunteered to help organize a Thanksgiving party at St. Mary’s.

CMH has had an exciting few months. Our club has grown exponentially with an influx of Latin 1s, and we are looking to have a great presence at convention. We are also excited to host our first ever board meeting for November and show off our school. With convention preparations already underway, we are looking forward to some more great months!

Homestead has had a busy October. Latin Club members walked in the Homecoming Parade to start the month. We brought back Capture the Helen and we're happy with the turnout. Thanks to everyone who participated! In addition, we collected socks for teenagers at the SAFE Haven of Racine. We also elected a First VP in an election to help out with Certamen. Certamen practices are underway, and students are getting into the state convention spirit!

In a nutshell, we try very hard but accomplish very little. We're currently working on our first-ever Latin Club newsletter, designed to inform Latin students who have not yet joined JCL, as well as interested parents, about our activities. Additionally, due to the fact that our club is always broke, we are constantly organizing fundraisers. Our latest endeavor is a Scoopy Night at Culver's. And lastly, of course, we're planning and getting excited for state convention!

University School of Milwaukee has been preparing for our second visit to State. We are proud to announce that we will be bringing three Certamen teams this year. Since last year was our first time attending convention, many of us didn’t know what to expect, but this time, we are upping our game! Our Certamen teams for Latin 1, 2, and 3 have been meeting weekly. Sophomore Caleb Saffold has done a fantastic job organizing the teams, gathering questions, and helping to sharpen our skills. The friendly competition has energized our Latin community. We have nearly three times the delegates this year and couldn’t be more excited to see everyone in a few months!
