The Latin Club at Jackson Academy just had their annual birthday party/banquet for Rome. Throughout the year Latin Club members partake in many activities like a t-shirt design competition, but the most important activity is the birthday party for Rome! The banquet featured students, who are in their first year of taking Latin, as Plebs and second year and higher students as Patricians. The banquet started at JA in 1995, after Latin teacher and club sponsor Judy Mckeigney thought it was necessary to bring the excitement of the banquet to JA. The Plebs and Patricians were distinct classes in Rome, and students experienced this first hand after having to be in servitude to an upperclassman for an entire week! There was a gladiator fight, where the winner was rewarded by not having to dress in a toga. Modern day Roman food such as grapes, cheese, bread, deviled eggs, Caesar salad, chicken Alfredo and Mariana pasta, cheesecake, and fruit pizza were also enjoyed. You can’t forget about the white grape juice! From food and gladiator fights to togas, the Latin Club gives a modern take on ancient Roman life!
