EHS CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES
Anime Club: The Anime Club features videos and manga representative of Japanese pop culture. Interested members often bring to the meetings their own media collection to share with the group. We occasionally sponsor video game tournaments as an alternative activity. The Anime Club meets year round on Friday afternoons. Membership is open to anyone.
Art Club: The Art Club meets to work on visual arts projects. Most projects are community and/or school based; therefore the Art Club is an excellent choice for those students wishing to beautify the school and community. All students are welcome in the Art Club; even those who are not serious artists due to the fact that most work is collaborative and there are jobs for everyone. Art Club is an excellent way to make lasting bonds with students and teachers who share a love of the visual arts.
