ENGLISH HONOR SOCIETY (EHS at LHS)
Overview & Objectives:
The English Honor Society (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 and/or junior years, and lasting through their senior year of high school for any that remain in good standing. 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.
An anticipated annual schedule for 8-10 meetings, with 8 monthly general membership meetings, will be posted in September. Meetings are held monthly from September through May from 2:30-3:00/3:10pm via Google Meet until further notice (or Room #214 once possible). Officers are to attend from 2:20-3:20 as available. Additional activity meetings, fundraising events, volunteer experiences, and special events are held as appropriate, or as opportunities arise. All meetings are subject to cancellation and/or change at the discretion of the advisor.
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;
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 2:30-3:00/3:10pm. Meetings this year will generally be held on the third Wednesday of each month, 2:30-3:00/3:10pm with room for possible adjustment in Mid-Winter (10/21, 11/18, 12/9, 1/20 or TBD, 2/24 or TBD, 3/17, 4/21, & 5/19); OFFICERS will begin at 2:20 and stay for 10 minutes after the meeting closes.
