Spanish Club is for 6th-8th grade students who are interested in the Spanish language & Hispanic culture. The Spanish Club encourages students to practice their Spanish outside of the classroom. By providing opportunities to go out into the community, we are raising awareness of the significance of being bilingual. Students travel to local business, meeting native speakers and practicing their Spanish. They also have the opportunity to learn about various countries from Native Guest Speakers, as well as participate in the Bridge Hispanic Mission, a ministry that is geared to reaching out to the Hispanic community. It allows students to experience the Hispanic culture not just learn about from a book.

This fair gives our students the chance to compete for college scholarships, awards, honors programs and other exciting prizes.
