Quimby Art Collective

The Quimby Art Collective is a program that allows students at all artistic levels to explore different avenues of art. The main goal of this club is to help students build an appreciation for the visual arts and to provide a creative outlet for all students to enjoy. We hold our meetings at lunch every Wednesday in Room 34. At our club meetings, we encourage members to discover their own inner artist by looking at different types of artwork from around the world and to experiment with different types of mediums (i.e., graphite, charcoal, pastel). Students also have a brief moment at the beginning of our meetings to share their own artwork and to provide positive feedback to their peers. If you have questions, please e-mail Mrs. Guinnane at kguinnane@eesd.org.

Chess Masters

Are you and your friends bored and looking for something fun to do at lunch? If so, you're in luck. Starting Wednesday, September 14, 2016, Chess Masters is starting up. "What's Chess Masters?" you ask. It's a place for you to hang out, eat lunch, play chess or other board games, and relax. This year, it will be in room 27 every Wednesday. Bring your lunch and see you there! If you have questions, contact Mr. Fujimoto at mfujimoto@eesd.org.

Los Lobos

Los Lobos' purpose is to promote unity, higher education, culture, and empower students to strive for success. Students will have the opportunity to become more culturally aware, embrace it, coordinate events, learn leadership skills, and most importantly, start thinking about an educational future. Students will have the opportunity to listen to guest speakers, attend educational field trips, and create a community within the program. Students will meet the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month in room 2. Parents also play a role in this program as Los Lobos requires them to attend 2 out of 3 meetings where they will be given tools to help their child succeed in middle school. Get an application from Mrs. Keller to join. If you have any questions feel free to contact Mrs. Keller, Assistant Principal, at hkeller@eesd.org.
