Latin National Honors Society
The Latin National Honors Society aims to create an environment where students can explore Greek and Roman culture and enhance their learning experience through peer tutoring. This year we will have multiple fundraisers, work on community service projects, expand our tutoring program, and further establish our presence at Wootton. In order to be a member of the Latin National Honors society students must be at least in Latin II and be committed enough to the club that they are willing to participate in as many Latin National Honors Society activities possible. Meetings are monthly, usually in portable X.

National French Honors Society
The Wootton High School chapter of the French Honor Society encompasses a select group of advanced level French students who demonstrate exceptional scholarship in the study of French language and culture. Membership in this organization is contingent on outstanding academic performance and dedication to French studies both inside the classroom and out.
Throughout the academic year, students partake in various fundraisers that serve the local and global community. Most notably, profits from these fundraisers are donated to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), a humanitarian organization that provides medical assistance to underprivileged countries. In the 2015-2016 year alone, FHS raised over $ 1 000 for this organization.
As members of FHS, students also enrich their understanding of French culture during the school year and outside of class by dining in French restaurants, viewing films, attending French culinary lessons and visiting local art museums. In addition, members have the opportunity to serve as aides or tutors, working with students in lower levels and assisting the French department and FHS with activities. Because FHS is not as large as, say , NHS, it is easier for students to take on leadership roles and receive direct support from other officers and members.

National Spanish Honors Society
The Spanish Honor Society is proud to serve the community in the US and abroad. In the school and community, the members offer a peer tutoring service, and plan to work with the Hispanic community in various ways. In addition, SHS has developed a Student Exchange Program with the City of Atyrá, Paraguay. Together with the Embassy of Paraguay, the Organization of American States, and another area school, we have established the Foundation Children of Atyrá. The work of the Foundation began last year with a clothing and school supplies drive for the elementary school children of this city, and continued when fifteen members of the Foundation and Spanish Honor Society traveled to Atyrá during Spring Break to deliver the items that they had collected.
