The Spanish Club is open to students of all four grades who are interested in participating in activities which are related to Hispanic culture and the Spanish language. The club elects four officers in the fall and these students direct the club’s activities throughout the year.
The club provides an opportunity to students of different grades and backgrounds to meet, socialize and develop friendships. One of the highlights of the year is the creation of an original club t-shirt to be worn on the designated Fenwick language club day.
Most of the meetings take place in the morning before school. We often have breakfast meetings to which students bring Hispanic foods to sample. We frequently sing Spanish-language songs at these breakfast meetings. Other social events include parties with the other foreign language clubs, cooking demonstrations, and restaurant trips. For the past several years at Christmas time the club has collected hats, gloves and coats for local parishes with needy families.
