Spanish Club

The Spanish Club is a means for our students to explore opportunities involving the Hispanic community and to make use of the Spanish skills learned in their classes at SJP.

A contest is held each year, and the students become familiar with Hispanic artists. The club also hosts an event for the Spanish/Hispanic students that visit us on the exchange program.

The club meets every other week to discuss and plan events related to the culture.  The club moderator is Ms. Olga Forbes of the World Languages Department.
