French Honor Society

French Honor Society Induction


 

Purpose

NATIONAL FRENCH HONOR SOCIETY

Purpose: To foster and encourage the study of the French language and culture.

Qualifications: Two full years of French with a grade of A- or better; a minimum 3.0 GPA in all other coursework (excluding French grades); completion of at least one full semester at SJHS (transfer students). Enrollment is by moderator/teacher invitation only.

Société Honoraire de Français L'homme qui sait deux langues en vaut deux! The establishment of a chapter of the Société Honoraire de Français offers several potential benefits to a secondary French program.

First, it provides an opportunity to recognize outstanding scholarship in the study of French language through selection for membership, the placement of a special seal on the graduate's diploma, the wearing of a white cord at graduation, and the right to wear the official emblem/pin of the honor society.

Second, the chapter provides a vehicle for focusing activities around French language and literature and also for encouraging member participation in the annual writing contest as well as application for the annual travel grants.

In addition, there is the opportunity for students to experience leadership in serving as officers, directing the initiation ceremony, and/or leading other chapter events.
