Meet the TMS Greek Club!

Medusa, Athena, Heracles. Greek mythology is so interesting. If you also think that, take a look at the Greek Club! 

About the Club 

Mrs. Jones runs the club. Each month, the club picks a book to read based on a different topic (Horror, Love, Friendship, etc), and they discuss the book at the next meetings. The meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month, and at every meeting, they talk about a different Greek myth or holiday.

Hi, my name is Arnaaz and I'm twelve years old and I'm in 7th grade. I have a dog named Melon, and he's almost 2 years old. I love reading and going to the beach, and I lived in San Diego until I was 11. I am an only child but I have a lot of cousins. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I do figure skating in La Jolla. I hope you like my writing!
