Our Mission:
If you are enrolled in German, participate in Houston fest in February. It's our regional competition with many categories to choose from--everything from poetry to puppet show to club album to culture test. If you qualify, you advance to State at UT-Austin. Participation at State earns you a letter jacket. Later in the Spring, we participate in Aldine Language Fair. So help us bring home more trophies! Not enrolled? Then help us with Fall Fest in October--a safe trick-or-treat experience for the local elementary students. You can also help with the annual TAFE Christmas tree decorating contest in December. Help with our fundraiser, too. The money goes for expenses at State, as well as other club activities and the occasional new German movie.

These clubs are to learn how to play the accordion while having peer-to peer lessons on playing the accordion. We accommodate to most any type of accordion and we also accommodate to any style of music, practice to play at school events like the Cinco de Mayo program and meet other musicians at the school and around the community. 
The Hispanic heritage club is an organization that celebrates and promotes awareness about the Hispanic culture not only in the school but also in the community. HHC will be responsible for and organize various events throughout the school year that highlight the diversity of the Hispanic culture; for example, Dia de los muertos and cinco de mayo.
