Spanish Honor Society

Spanish Honor Society (SHS)

The Spanish Honor Society (SHS) recognizes high achievement of high school students in Spanish and to promote a continuing interest in their studies.

We meet to discuss culture and have activities that expand from the learning in the classroom.  Members volunteer as Spanish tutors after school.  Students in Spanish III or higher and in the 10th and 11th grade are nominated to apply by their Spanish teacher in January.
