El Círculo del Árbol Spanish National Honor Society Inducts New Members
"I promise to devote myself to the study of the Spanish language and culture in order to master it. I promise to remember that a language can be a strong tie between people with different identities and backgrounds. As a global citizen, I promise to promote friendship and understanding both within my community and abroad."
With this oath, 11 new members were inducted into Indian Creek's Chapter of the Spanish National Honor Society, ElCírculo del Árbol at the Upper School meeting on Wednesday, October 16.
Spanish Honor Society (SHS) is comprised of students who have exhibited deep interest in the Spanish language and culture, along with academic excellence and a dedication to service. Community building is a key element for Indian Creek's SHS. This year, the society has offered a craft table during CREEKfest, educated the student body about Hispanic Heritage Month, produced a video to highlight the experiences of students and staff with a Hispanic Heritage, and is planning a community service opportunity to connect ICS students with local immigrant children.
