    Hi Brendan,

    Costless Ways to Give Back (http://blog.portsmouthabbey.org/2012/11/19/costless-way-to-give-back-to-the-abbey/) was very successful and helpful for both parents and alumni. Why Latin is Not a Dead Language (http://blog.portsmouthabbey.org/2012/11/05/why-latin-is-not-a-dead-language/) was great because it helped support why we require all of our students to take 1 year of Latin. The Artifacts in My Classroom (http://blog.portsmouthabbey.org/2012/12/03/the-artifacts-in-my-classroom/) gave everyone a glimpse into the “cool stuff” that teachers have in their classrooms that we might not otherwise notice.

    Thanks for all of the great posts!
