ANNOUNCEMENTS & NEWS
JAPAN CLUB 日本部
We will have our next meeting for the school year on Monday, December 11th. We will celebrate the end of the first part of our year with our annual Bounenkai ("Forget the Year" Party). We will enjoy food and games together. As part of our tradition, we expect all students to contribute something small to the party, so please contact the officers to let them know what you'll be bringing, so we can plan accordingly. Remember, from now on, ONLY DUES PAYING MEMBERS are invited to our meetings; be sure to pay your dues by 12/10.
Our membership dues can be paid online at the BCPS e-store, look in the left side margin, click on the High School link; then look again in the left side margin, click on the Deerfield Beach High School link, and look for Japan Club Membership Dues among the list of options and then follow the directions from there.
SAT Subject Test in Japanese - December Practice
Students in our intermediate and advanced classes will have the opportunity on Monday, December 11th to take a practice version of the SAT Subject Test in Japanese. This unique opportunity is being offered through an Educational Testing Service initiative to encourage students studying Japanese to take the exam. Students will take the hour-long exam during class and will have access to results the same day, along with feedback on different questions. We're lucky to have this great opportunity.
