Lower School students and families gathered in Dunavant Lecture Hall of Hull Lower School to celebrate the Order of the Owl and Latin Honor Society inductions May 13.
Order of the Owl inductees must achieve at least a 90 weighted average, computed from their grades for the first semester and third quarter, excluding physical education. Eighth graders must have achieved at least a 93 weighted average, computed the same way. They must also have demonstrated character consistent with the high standards of the school’s Honor Code and Community Creed. Forty-nine students received Order of the Owl recognition.
Seventeen eighth graders joined the National Junior Classical League Latin Honor Society. To be considered, students must hold membership in the MUS Latin Club, must have an A average in Latin class for the first three quarters of the year, must have approval of their Latin teacher, and must attend the local Latin Fall Festivus or Tennessee Junior Classical League State Convention.
