It was an evening of happy faces, hugs and handshakes at the Honors Program for the Minnehaha Class of 2016.
Concordia Latin Days includes two days of fun and competition for middle and high school Latin students at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. Students test their Latin skills through the Colosseum Bowl (where teams of students answer oral questions covering grammar, vocabulary, Roman life, history and mythology) and a written academic competition, covering multiple Latin topics. The Latin Days finale is a Roman-style toga banquet where competition winners are announced and prizes are awarded.
The English Department honored three students of the junior class today who have shown grit (perseverance and passion), have pursued excellence, rejoiced in discovery and demonstrated a spirit of cooperation.
Congratulations to seniors Samuel Myers, Tori Roloff, Tyler Radtke and Sam Carlen, who were finalists in the 28th Annual Student Essay Contest sponsored by The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.
Students from Minnehaha’s Oceanography class went to the Mall of America this past weekend and participated in the Sea Life Aquarium Rainbow Reef tank snorkel experience.
"A vous la parole," the Minnesota State Oral French contest, was held recently at the University of Minnesota. Students recited poetry and were judged by native speakers and university professors for their pronunciation, intonation and overall presentation.
Minnehaha’s Intro to Business students got a taste of the real world last week when they took a field trip to meet their eMentors at Accenture in downtown Minneapolis. This spring’s MA partnership with eMentors is unique because many of the mentors are based out of Accenture’s Dallas, TX office. During this field trip, the students were able to ‘meet’ virtually by teleconference with many of the mentors in Dallas.
Congratulations to the MA Math Team, whose scores throughout the season qualified them to participate in the State Math Meet on March 14.
Theodore Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, and some more of the greats from American history were brought to life by Minnehaha Academy's fourth grade students yesterday.
