We have shared lots of information about athletics, academics, volunteering, leadership opportunities and this time we will focus on the clubs students get involved in at GSS. All clubs are open to all students!

ANIME CLUB

Students meet to view Anime videos, share ideas, and draw in the Anime style. They discuss plots and the characters of different Anime series and movies that they have seen.

ART CLUB

Open to all students who are interested in Art. Students meet weekly to create art pieces that vary from drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. There are often tutorials where new media and techniques are shared. The students will work on individual projects of their choice or the club may work on group projects like murals, stained glass panels, and designs for posters. So if you are creative, like to explore art styles, and want to express your inner artist, this is the club for you!
