Greece is still a mystery to me. I know that the Greeks were polytheists and started the Olympic Games. In addition, I know that Greece was made of city-states. I’m excited to learn more!
In class, we are doing a Greek simulation. Each group of desks is a city-state. Every day, the city-states earn points by being prepared, following instructions, and winning events like the javelin throw and acting out a play. The catch is that the city-states can lose points too. Misbehaving or doing the opposite of the things that will gain points cause points to be lost. At the end of each period, a person from each city-state rolls the dice for what we call “the fates”. This time, the Gods decide how many points the members of the city-state gain or lose. The class ends and the men escort the ladies out.

Gian-Luc Jordan, we all miss you so much. Always in the hall, I always heard “hey look, its Gian-Luc.” Everyone in the hall turns and looks & what do you see? Gian-Luc with a big smile on his face. His smile always shined like the sun. I always saw him with his friends laughing, smiling, laughing, anything you could think of. His family dearly loved him. He had a big sister and little siblings. I thought Luca was pretty cool and super nice. He was one of my friends, even though I didn’t get to talk to him much. He had SO much energy around his friends. I always think of him and pray for his family. You were loved so much. I miss you so much Luca.
