On November 3 and November 5 the National Honor Society held two brief meetings.

Probation letters have been sent out and should have been returned by Friday, November 5, 2010. If you have any questions or concerns about your letter you may contact Ms. McGauran or Ms. Zagarella.

The induction ceremony for new members is scheduled for Wednesday, November 10. Senior members are still needed to volunteer at this event.

Parent teacher night is November 18. NHS has not been asked for volunteers yet; however if/when they are members will be needed from either 3:00p.m. - 5:00p.m. or from 6:00p.m. - 8:30 pm. This can count as one of the three school service projects that are required.

Fundraising was also discussed. If any member did not participate in the autumn mixer you are required to email treasurer Bryan Melo, at bryanmmelo@gmail.com, with fundraising ideas. You should include the idea, how it can be completed, and how much money it may bring to the club. All ideas should be original.

Lastly, the Durfee Theater Company is offering community service hours to any member of the NHS who can help at their Tuesday rehearsals. For more information or to sign up see Alisia Medeiros.

The next meetings will be held on Wednesday, November 17 and Friday, November 19.

On Tuesday, October 19 the Durfee Spanish Club held its third meeting of the school year. The club has a few fundraising events planned. They will tag on Sunday, November 7, at various stores and they are selling items from the Ideal fundraising holiday catalogs. The Spanish Club has a field trip scheduled for November 17 to Boston to see a Spanish performance and have lunch in either Fanueil Hall or the Theatre District. The club is also planning a larger field trip for the Spring. They plan to travel to New York City for two nights. The money raised by each club member during their fundraising events will be held in his/her own account to lower the cost of the New York City trip.

“This year in Spanish club, we not only hope to expand the cultural knowledge for our members, but instill greater ethical values in them as well,” said senior co-president Jordan Rego.

The next Spanish Club meeting will be held in a couple of weeks.
