Marielena Savino started this petition to Booker High Students and

When many of us were younger, we were fascinated with the idea of Greek Mythology. Knowing that there was a time where people believed in a god specifically dedicated to wine and partying, we were infatuated. Not to mention the effect that the book and movie series 'Percy Jackson' had on us, believing that we were descendants of gods made us feel so special. 

Being able to take a class all about greek and roman civilization would fulfill the dreams and aspirations of many students. Since many of us have previous knowledge in this realm, maintaining a passing grade in this class would help bring our GPA's but still provide us with the necessary obstacles we need to grow.

The Cambridge definition of this class is "Our course encompasses the history, culture, archaeology, art, philosophy and linguistics of classical antiquity and the study of original texts and artefacts. You can either specialise in a particular field or retain the breadth with which the course starts."

The careers that could benefit from having taken this class- "Studying Classics will help you develop transferable skills that are essential for many careers after graduation. Our students are hard-working, articulate, accurate and efficient, take new tasks in their stride and can master situations intelligently. Some graduates go into research and teaching in schools and universities, or work in libraries and museums. But most go into other careers – in law, the media, accountancy, the Civil Service, industry and business. Our graduates include bankers, barristers, solicitors, actors, musicians and theatrical artistic directors."

We hope this petition will finally allow Booker High School in Sarasota, Florida to offer this class.
