Latin/Certamen Team

Latin/Certamen Team is an organization open to all students who love Roman history, culture, mythology, and language. The club is primarily a social club, and yearly outings include trips to the Olive Garden for dinner, Greek and Roman themed movie nights, bowling, and laser tag. We also celebrate the most important Roman festivals, such as Saturnalia, with food and games. Latin Club caps off the year with a “Roman Olympics” where teams can participate in events such chariot racing, footraces, catapult construction, and mosaic making. Enrollment in Latin class is not required. Latin/Certamen team also participates in tri-annual district wide Latin Certamen competitions. Certamen is a quiz-bowl style Latin competition in which teams from Chicago and North Shore area high schools compete against one another in the areas of Latin grammar, translation, history, culture, and mythology. Advisor: Mrs. Jaime Reuben
