With a big smile on her face, Jessica Klimpel (12) hands a student a T-shirt order form on Oct. 11.

Students in Spanish National Honor Society are teaming together to sell shirts that are available to be purchased by students in all levels of Spanish classes. The money that is raised will be donated to help those affected by recent hurricane damage in Puerto Rico.

The shirts will be light blue and say “Hola” and Oakville High School Spanish on the front with grey lettering. They are only $15 and Spanish National Honor Society students will participation points for each shirt that is sold in their name.

“We came up with the idea because Señora King got a magazine in the mail filled with T-shirt designs,” Spanish National Honor Society member Jessica Klimpel (12) said.

Spanish students are encouraged to buy a shirt to represent the school while going on out of school cultural activities in addition to supporting those who were affected by the recent catastrophes. Students can purchase their shirt until Oct. 18.

“We decided to donate to hurricane relief because we could tell that our processed would be put to good use,” Spanish National Honor Society member Mark Pinner (12) said. “It’s important for students to buy these shirts to unify our classes towards a good cause.”
