Attention all 9th-12th Graders! Are you a fan of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians? Or fascinated by ancient cultures like the Greeks, the Romans, and the Egyptians? Check out the Ancient Cultures and Mythologies Club callout today during activity period! We will explore the myths of the Greek Underworld, the pyramid builders of ancient Egypt, ancient Sumerian kingship, the nine Nordic worlds of Yggdrasil, and the complex pantheons and myths that go along with them. We will be meeting in Mr. Schmit's room, J108, to pick out what mythologies we will be looking at this year. Please bring your chromebooks! If you are interested in the club and unable to attend the callout, please email Mr. Schmit.
