At Great Hearts Irving, universal Latin instruction is one of the key ways that we impart the tradition of Western Civilization to our scholars. Latin Night is an opportunity to learn more about our Latin program.
All Lower School parents are invited to join us in the Forum on Thursday, October 6, 2022 from 6 to 7pm for a special night in celebration of our Lower School Latin program. Our Latin Teachers, administration, and special guest Dr. Laura Eidt will share information and answer parent questions about our Latin curriculum, why we teach Latin, how we teach Latin, and how you can support your child’s learning of Latin from home.
This event is designed as an informational night for parents only, and space is limited. Please plan to leave your children at home.
Our Special Guest
