Student Activities


Anime Club with Ms. Seeley
Also known as Japanimation, Anime is an art form and a huge part of Japanese culture and entertainment for all ages. Fully animated features with character development, Japanese folklore, history, martial arts, science fiction, and visually advanced imagery are all part of Anime. This club is a place for anyone who is interested in anime, manga, drawing, comics, and cartoons. We will be drawing, doing anime related crafts, playing games, having discussions, and of course, watching anime while also experiencing and learning about Japanese culture through the media of Japan, and seeing its influence on other cultures.

We aim to provide a safe space for all students regardless of differences in identity or ability.
