The world language department is proud to announce a Celebrate Languages Ceremony will take place in each of our schools. Students will be recognized for earning the NJ DOE Seal of Biliteracy in one or more languages and/or being inducted into the Chinese, French, Italian, or Spanish National Honor Societies. 

The Pascack Hills ceremony will take place Thursday, December 1, at 7:00pm, and the Pascack Valley ceremony will take place December 8, at 7:00pm, each in their respective auditorium.

A candidate to a World Language Honor Society must be a senior at Pascack Hills High School who:

  1. has had three years of the respective world language in high school. 

  2. is currently placed in Level IV, IV Honors, V or AP.

  3. has maintained at least a 3.7 GPA in the world language.

Members of the honor societies provide ongoing peer tutoring, free of charge, as part
of their membership in this organization. Other honor society activities include a Thanksgiving Food Drive, community volunteering, collecting donations, and fundraising events. Members of each honor society receive a cord from the national chapter of the respective honor society to wear with their caps and gowns at graduation.

World Language Supervisor, Noemi Rodriguez, organizes this event along with the advisors.
