With enough people and a teacher supervisor; you could start your own! We hope to see you at future club meetings!
Arts & Craft
Hosted by: Mrs. Seneus / Jessica Cao & Bryan (Chenghui) Zhao
This club is a place for people to get together to relax and enjoy working with their hands on different creative projects! Some ideas we have for this new year are jewelry making, creating and sending cards to the elderly, origami, painting, drawing, watercolor, collage, etc. As the teacher host of this club, my goal is to take the ideas that students have for a project and make them into a reality, so you all have a safe space to express yourself creatively and try activities that interest you. No one needs anyone prior knowledge or background in art, or really any 'skill' in art either! I personally think it is about having fun and tapping into your creativity to have an outlet for self-expression :)
TUESDAYS LUNCHTIME - ROOM 588
Hosted by: Mr. Gallardo / Ashanti Ramirez

TUESDAYS LUNCHTIME - ROOM 588
Hosted by: Mr. Schuck / Kiera Swingle, Sophia Ruiz
The book club will be a discussion-based club where students choose a book that has a movie and discuss it throughout the duration of the reading. These books will be of various genres and will display many different kinds of themes. Once we complete the book, we watch the movie together and follow it up with a discussion of similarities, differences, and what we would change. This club will encourage students to read through an analytical lens and will help with discussion skills which can be used throughout the school year along with other social occasions. This will be a fun way for students to engage with each other and find common interests through reading.

EVERY OTHER TUESDAY AFTER SCHOOL - 532
Hosted By: Mr. Kozak / Katherine Ni
Mural Club is a small community that paints requested walls of teachers’ rooms. A mural is drawn on a wall using different mediums and layers to formulate a theme to the wall owner’s liking. Murals will last several years, so each artwork requires a good amount of commitment over the course of 1-2 months from a blank wall to a masterpiece. Mural paint and materials are provided by Mr. Kozak or the requested teacher. Students usually work on the murals during study hall or in their free time. The teachers would usually accommodate any needs. All murals are painted mainly by students because Mr. Kozak is fairly hands-off after providing inspiration and materials. The mural club meets after school as a group on Tuesdays after schools. With year-long projects waiting for us, we need your help!
