Hello, Students, staff, and friends of Hudson High school! Welcome to the National Chinese Honors Society (NCHS) page!
My name is Meghan Neville and I am the communications coordinator. This page talks about NCHS and what we are up to! I will be updating all the society news for you all! Allow me to introduce the rest of our officers and their positions. Our president is Erica Liu, our Vice President is Katrina Li, and our artistic coordinator is Laura Zhang! The teacher in charge of our program is the awesome Mr.Wang (王老师), who makes this organization really fun to be in and helps us learn. Our goal in NCHS is to learn about the Chinese language and culture and to share it with the school. Watch out for upcoming projects and events from NCHS! We look forward to teaching our school about Chinese culture and language!

Chinese Corner - Chinese, Games, Friendships
On March 15th, the National Chinese Honors Society came to school on a late start day to play board games, such as Guess Who and Chinese Checkers, and only speaking Mandarin Chinese! This allowed for us students to practice our speaking skills while having fun with friends! This was our first Chinese Corner of the year, which is what we are calling days dedicated to doing activities related to learning about the Chinese language and culture! It is available to anyone in the school, even if you don’t speak Chinese or aren’t in the class. Everyone is welcome! We hope to see you there at our next event!

Come Together to Celebrate Chinese New Year and Decorate the School
After school, the National Chinese Honors Society (NCHS) and Dear Asian Youth were hard at work decorating the senior courtyard with paper lanterns and a poster made for Chinese New Year. To share a piece of Chinese culture with the school, the students made Hongbao (红包), otherwise known as red envelopes, which are traditionally filled with money and given to children from their relatives this holiday. The Hongbao from NCHS/Dear Asian Youth were filled with chocolate coins instead of money and were made for anyone who wanted one. They were gone very quickly! We are glad to be able to share such an awesome culture with HHS. Thank you to all of the students who participated in the decorating of the school and to Mr. Wang for organizing it.
National Chinese Honor Society (NCHS) Induction Ceremony
We welcomed new members into the National Chinese Honors Society with an induction ceremony. The students were given a candle and sworn in by reciting a promise in both English and Mandarin Chinese. As the students sat back down and blew out their candles, each student was awarded a certificate welcoming them into the society from the amazing Chinese teacher, Mr. Wang (王老师). We are grateful to Mr. Wilch who came in to watch the ceremony and congratulate us. We are also grateful to Mr. Wang, who has made this achievement possible.
