Loving Latin

Gilman has 77 reasons to be proud of its Latin program this spring. That's how many boys and girls earned awards on the 2017 National Latin exam. Three Gilman boys wrote perfect exams, receiving a certificate in addition to their gold medal. Only 6% of test takers achieved that distinction. And two boys received a special award for receiving their fourth gold medal. Congratulations to Justin Bai '20, Tom Broadus '20 and Mekhi Johnson '18 on their perfect papers and to Mekhi and Andy Eller '17 on winning their fourth medal. Well done gentlemen! You demonstrate that knowledge is monumentum aere perennius.

Sharing Stuff

The "stuff" given to friends of Sam and Charlie included playground equipment, books and clothing. Recently the boys presented their party gifts to the Upper School volunteers for the program, who will share them with Bridges students.
