The Discretionary Grants are available to classroom teachers for class projects, research, and classroom materials.
•Upcoming Classics lectures in the Pioneer Valley are listed on this Classics Page of the Amherst College web site.

The Western Massachusetts Conversational Hour meets every Thursday at the Esselon Cafe in Hadley, MA for Latin conversation. For details, please contact TJ Howell (t_j_howell@yahoo.com). If you are in the Boston area, check out the Active Latin Meetup page for events.
Central Connecticut State University is working to create a certification program for the teaching of Latin. Attached is the program of studies. In order to make this idea come to fruition we are seeking support from Latin groups. We need at least 10 students to sign up for this cohort in order to run the program. As an incentive to enroll into the program, we are looking for funding to offer scholarships to help defray the cost of course work at the university level. If you are interesting in supporting this initiative in any way please contact Gina Gallo Reinhard at the below ginagallo@bristolk12.org.
The Paideia Institute has released its schedule for summer 2018 programs, including a new “Living Greek in Greece” for high school students.
