SLOCA families, we hope you’re enjoying this end-of-trimester break! We have just a couple of little things to pass along today – one scholarly, one funny.

First, one of our parents sent in this interesting Smithsonian article for all history-loving people out there. It’s about the recent archaeological discovery of the grave of an Ancient Greek soldier, filled with artifacts, and it ties in repeatedly with everything we’ve been studying this past trimester:

This 3,500-Year-Old Greek Tomb Upended What We Thought We Knew About the Roots of Western Civilization


And to wrap up the week, here’s a little photo (which we found on Analytical Grammar’s Facebook page) demonstrating the hilarious consequences of incorrect grammar and punctuation. Share it with your kids for a good giggle!


Enjoy the weekend and we will see you on Monday/Tuesday for Trimester 3!
