Junior Classical League or Latin Club is a national high school organization of high school students who are learning Latin and/or Greek.
The purpose is to encourage an interest in and an appreciation of the language, literature, and culture of ancient Greece and Rome and to impart an understanding of the debt of our own culture to that of Classical antiquity.
We do this by convening a local, state, and national levels to compete in academic, athletic, and artistic events to measure and celebrate our collective talent.
JCL/Latin Club meets every Wednesday during A Block lunch in G207. Membership is $1.00/year.
In October the JCL participated in the LHS Home Coming Parade!
The JCL also participated in the LHS Halloween Festival
In December JCL held a fundraiser at Soulman's BBQ and received a check for $90!
