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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
