The Chinese club held the first Ping Pong tournament in January. In February, the annual Chinese New Year celebration sponsored by the club was a great success. The high school students and faculty got to enjoy traditional Chinese music, fun Chinese games as well as authentic Chinese food. In March, the club held a dumpling workshop where members were able to learn how to make dumplings.

Each year, around the time of the Ides of March, the Scarsdale Latin students come together to enjoy a Latin Banquet. This year again, students dressed in authentic Roman costumes and gathered in the Little Theater to enjoy eating their "cena" in the Roman style. During the meal, Latin students' musical talents provided the dinner with entertainment. Afterwards, the Latin 3/4 class performed a skit based on what they are reading in class. Then it was time for some friendly competition, both physical and mental. The Latin Banquet is a nice time for all the Latin students to be together and honor the huge legacy of Ancient Rome. We greatly appreciate the help of the parents to make this event happen!
