Mrs. Quinn’s Spanish Club


The Spanish Club will teach students about current Spanish culture.

On Friday, January 28, 2022, the first Spanish Club meeting was held at our school. Led by one of our Spanish teachers, Mrs. Quinn, it will give students the opportunity to learn about Spanish culture and traditions that they may not have known about in their Spanish classes (of course if they had Spanish classes). Mrs. Quinn’s club was made for a reason that can be agreed on by anyone.

“The Spanish Club is for any student interested in the Spanish language and or Hispanic culture,” Quinn said.

She also created this club for another important reason, one that can be useful for a student’s future.

“I really want students to gain an appreciation, understanding, and acceptance of other cultures,” Quinn said.

She also has a plan of what she wants to do in the club.

“Based on the responses from attendees at the first meeting, we will most likely be having monthly meetings that focus on a holiday or a celebration and how Spanish-speaking cultures celebrate it,” Quinn said.

Ms. Bundra, another teacher in World Languages, specifically Spanish, also has some thoughts on the upcoming club that Mrs. Quinn created for students.

“I am so happy that North Point has a Spanish Club,” Bundra said. “I think it will be a great opportunity for students to improve their Spanish skills, expand their cultural knowledge, and build relationships in a fun and inclusive environment.”

Some holidays from Spanish culture are Navidad, which is Christmas in Spanish, Day of the Dead, where everyone celebrates their loved ones move on into the afterlife, and Cinco de Mayo, or Fifth of May, where everyone celebrates the Mexicans and their victory over the French Empire in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. There are more unique Spanish and Hispanic celebrations that were not mentioned but maybe talked about in the Spanish club.

The next Spanish Club meeting as of this article will be Thursday, February 10, 2022. Everyone will be invited to this meeting, so feel free to drop by!
