Students at the Spanish Honors Society potluck choose from a variety of cultural foods.

On Wednesday, February 22, 2023, Spanish Honors Society hosted a potluck dinner event from 6 to 9 pm. The annual event took place in Cherry Hill High School East’s Cafeteria 1 with around 50 of the honors society members in attendance. Each student was required to bring a Hispanic-themed dish in order to attend.                 

Students were permitted to work with a partner or in a small group to create or buy large dishes while those providing drinks, snacks and desserts were encouraged to work individually. 

Students provided cultural dishes from Mexico, Spain, Argentina and more. Main dishes included chicken tacos, enchiladas, fajitas and more, with the majority being homemade. Almost ten appetizers were brought including tortilla chips, guacamole, and different salsas. A variety of desserts were provided ranging from churros to a dulce de leche cake. 

Juniors and seniors of the honors society came together to share and try the cultural food while listening to Spanish music. The event was an opportunity for the members to bond out of school while still incorporating Hispanic cultures. 

“The goal of the potluck is to expose the students to different cultures,” said Spanish Honors Society Advisor Mrs. McVeigh.

Spanish Honors Society meets regularly and often has different activities going on —from redecorating three of the third-floor classroom doors to providing peer and bridge tutoring daily. 

“The students do a lot of work, so we thought it was important to have a fun event where students get to enjoy themselves and get to know each other, “ said Spanish Honors Society Advisor Mrs. Eister.
