Latin Club
Dr. Hicks
The Latin club promotes interest in the Latin Language and Roman culture and civilization beyond what is typically covered in Latin or History classes.

French Club (3-6)

In French Club, students have the opportunity to explore French culture and learn some basics of the French language.
