🌞 Rise and shine, Bosco freshmen! 📚 Are you ready for a journey through time and language with the one and only Mr. Zawiski in our beautifully sunny classroom? 🏫 Why Latin, you ask? It's not just about conjugations and declensions, it's about gaining a perspective that transcends the present moment. 🌐 Let's converse across millennia! And why Bosco? Because here, education is a matter of the heart, just as Don Bosco said. Mr. Z is here to accompany the boys not just in Latin, but through the formative years of their lives.
