Grier’s French and Spanish Language Honor Societies welcomed new members in an induction ceremony held in the Living Room during Extra Help period on Friday. New members included: Lavender W., Melissa K., Sherry X., Ivy Z., Vivian Z., Bella W., Christine Z., Kristen L., Lauren S., and Shelby H.
Existing members of the Honor Society joined the new inductees for the ceremony, and the Grier Community was invited to witness and celebrate the special occasion. Congratulations!
Students in Grier's Language Honor Society demonstrate a deep interest in the study of Spanish and French as observed by the faculty members of Grier's Modern Languages Department, which include Mme. Pope, M./Sr. Wilson, and Srta. Leen. All members recited the pledge, either in Spanish or French, and lit small candles from a central pillar candle. The small candles are souvenirs for the students, a symbol to keep their love of language burning brightly.
Department Head Mme. Pope has also been encouraging students to immerse themselves in French language and culture during some of their free time. Students joined her during Extra Help this week to play a French edition of Scrabble.
