Formerly called “Saturnalia,” a Roman winter holiday, Mythology Day includes costumes, brief speeches in front of students, faculty and parents, and activities connected to classical mythology led by 8th graders.  Started in 1981 when the school began, Mythology Day celebrates the school’s classical curriculum incorporating Latin, critical thinking, and connections to modern languages.
