Spanish Honor Society says “hola!” to elementary school kids

Each school year Spanish Honor Society comes up with one service project in order to give back to the community.

Deciding to start where learning begins, this year Spanish Honor Society is going to teach Spanish to elementary school students.

“The goal is to promote foreign language,” said Dominic Haley (12), Co-Secretary of Spanish Honor Society. Haley was the one that came up with the idea to teach these younger students. He was inspired by his Spanish education at OHS, saying that teaching the kids would be “a good way to apply our Spanish abilities.”

As of now there are very few details set in stone, since the group just decided on this project not too long ago, but this project is predicted to be a success.

“It’s something that could be a lot of fun for the elementary kids,” said Mrs. Carol Robinson, Sponsor of Spanish Honor Society and OHS spanish teacher. She believes that the younger generation will be greatly impacted, saying that “they look up to the teens,” and having the Spanish Honor Society members work with them will create a “buddy system and maybe new friends.”

Haley also has high hopes for this project.

“I think this project will impact young students,” Haley said, adding that it will show the “benefit and enjoyment of learning another language.”

Spanish Honor Society officers will be meeting on Nov. 4th, and the entire club will be meeting on Nov. 12th to plan this service project.
