Last week was one full of events for our upper school students. Our eighth graders had their banquet at Spirit Ranch and the Juniors and Seniors had their banquet at Sophia’s Place the following week. At the Junior/Senior banquet, students participated in the Obduco Lampus, or passing of the torch, from the Senior class to the Junior class. Senior Jake Mulkey was also presented with the first KPA Senior Service Award.

For the third year, KPA Latin students took the National Latin Exam. This test is given to 139,000 Latin students each year, and it is a good measure of the Latin program at a school. This year’s results are very impressive! Listed below are the students who won awards for being above the national average.
7th Grade- Intro to Latin
8th Grade – Level 1
Celeste Estrella (9th)
9th Grade – Latin 2
10 Grade- Latin 3
This is an amazing performance for the school. Jacob Pfannenstiel should also be congratulated for making a PERFECT score on his Introduction to Latin NLE test! This is the first perfect score for the school. Way to go, Latin students!
