Northborough – Proctor School third-, fourth- and fifth-graders were honored for their participation in the National Greek & Roman Mythology program June 14. This is the eighth year that fourth-grade teacher Liz O”Neill has coordinated the challenging after-school activity.

“For the first time, we had 63 students participating in the program,” O”Neill said, “and we are proud of each and every one of them.”

Students read books on ancient Greeks and goddesses, formed study groups and practiced for the National Mythology Exam, a test issued by the University of Miami in Ohio. Students received awards based on their exam scores.

As a result, 18 students received a Certificate of Participation; 17 students, Honorable Mention; one student, Bronze Medallion; 17 students, Silver Medallion; and 10 students, a Gold Medallion for scoring 100 percent on the exam.

First-grade student Isabella Mulkey was named “Principal of the Day,” after her name was chosen in a raffle during the Spring Fair. “Principal Mulkey,” proudly assisted in handing out awards to the well-deserving young scholars.
