ENGLISH HONOR SOCIETY
Overview: The English Honor Society (The EHS at LHS) is a club for students that possess a love of literature, poetry, music, art, performance arts, film, creative and analytical writing, and exploring all aspects of English Language Arts. The membership honor for this club will be offered, via application approval, to all interested and eligible students towards the end of their sophomore or junior years, and lasting through their senior year of high school. EHS will involve top ELA students in academically and culturally enriching experiences, as well as fundraising and community service. Activities may include book talks, the study of theatre, shared creative writing, and attending live performances at a variety of theatres within the Lancaster community, the City of Buffalo, and around Western New York. The English Honor Society will essentially provide a network of students who share an enthusiasm for the study of literature and literary endeavors. Special activities are scheduled as appropriate when opportuniities arise. General membership meetings are held monthly, October through May.
General Info: We would first like to take a moment to send our best heartfelt wishes to Mrs. Berger in her retirement. Due to the circumstances surrounding Covid-19, a change in Advisorship to Mr. Hultgren, and other unforseen obstacles (such as a late start), we will likely face varied challenges in scheduling some activities this year. Otherwise, EHS Club announcements, meeting dates, & club updates will be communicated directly to members via Google Classroom; look for a general announcement on where to sign up.
Meetings Note: Our first meeting, at this point for inducted members only, will be scheduled and conducted via Google Classroom-Google Meet on Wednesday, October 21st from 2:20-3:00/3:20pm. Meetings this year will generally be held on the third Wednesday of each month, with room for possible adjustment in Mid-Winter (10/21, 11/18, 12/16, 1/20 or TBD, 2/24 or TBD, 3/17, 4/21, 5/19)
