Gallery: You had me at “Hola!”

To integrate the new members in with the old, the Spanish Honors Society held a Spring Social on Wednesday, April 17. With the help of the club sponsor, Sra. Ruth Pascual, the club representatives organized games and activities in Spanish, such as “Simón Dice” and a partner dance. The newcomers listened to presentations covering the goals and achievements of the club, and at the end all members enjoyed food and getting to know each other.
