Spanish Club

Grade levels: 7-8
Purpose: Promote the use of the Spanish language, provide additional opportunities for experiencing and learning more about Hispanic culture and history, and reach out to the Hispanic Community. The Spanish Club fosters enthusiasm for learning about Spanish culture and lifestyle and encourages students to take a more active role in their Spanish studies.

Sample activities include: special speakers, instruction in Hispanic dance or arts/crafts, movies, food, celebration of special holidays, singing, speaking, Spanish games, outreaches with Hispanic ministries, field trips to Hispanic Cultural experiences including restaurants.
Months: September - May

Regular Meetings are generally held monthly on a Wednesday during activity bell.  Meetings will alternate between:

  • Feature Event: a cultural experience that may involve typical food, a special speaker, presentation of a specific country, crafts, dance, or a Latin American celebration.
  • Immersion Experience: an experience where students focus on listening to and using their Spanish.  Examples include games, movies, singing or making a typical craft.

Special Events may occur during the day or on weekends, such as the Hispanic Cultural Fest or the Hispanic outreaches. 

  • Types of Activities:  celebrating special holidays, outreaches with Hispanic ministries, and field trips to Hispanic cultural experiences (We have a Latin American Festival show or concert trip and a restaurant trip).
