In Spanish Club, students meet once a month in the Spanish classroom and sometimes the library. Mrs. Sexson, who is the advisor, has about 15 students in the club. During the meetings, the club learns about and discusses Mexican culture and plans for a trip to go at the end of the year. “I’m not sure where were going yet, but we plan on taking a trip to somewhere Mexican related,” stated Kamric King, president of the Spanish Club.
“We’re doing a Toys For Tots activity where we gather toys, healthy snacks, books, and things that kids would like to play with for a daycare here in Nowata. We met with the administrator and she told us that books are very important for these children because they are in need. We have four infants and the rest are 2-4 year olds,” said Mrs. Sexson when interviewed about the Toys For Tots project. Each student was assigned a different item to bring for the toddlers’ stockings, which they decorated during Spanish class.
“When the Spanish Club meets, we eat a lot of Mexican food and learn new things about the culture, we also plan our next meetings and what we’re going to talk about then,” Kamric says, “It’s a great club to be in.”
