Spanish Activities at Neuqua

Some fun ways students can go beyond the classroom to expand their linguistic and cultural knowledge at Neuqua!

El Club de Español

Spanish Club welcomes ALL students - they do not need to be taking Spanish - to come participate in our fun cultural activities!

Urbanowicz-Spanish Club - First Semester 2019

¡Vamos a Costa Rica!

Summer 2020

Travel is a very valuable experience for students where they can not only test out their language skills, but also learn about and appreciate other cultures and history. Come with us as we explore another Spanish-speaking country!

Contact Mrs. Marge Urbanowicz at marge_urbanowicz@ipsd.org if you're interested in our Costa Rica trip (summer 2020).

La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica

SHH is an academic and service-based honor society for dedicated and high-achieving Spanish students. Click here for more information.
