As we move further into the school year, East is able to offer more club opportunities. There are now 35 active clubs at East. So, there are plenty of ways for students to get involved with something they’re interested in. Some of the clubs that are now reopening are:
The Seneca with Mrs. Fey-Daly
The Seneca is a discussion-based club that is focused on learning about human rights violations pertaining to girls and women around the world. Anyone is welcome, and we think members of Girl Up and Political Forum would especially enjoy this club. The Seneca centers around discussions, but its members are always welcome to participate in Girl Up projects.

Latin Club with Mrs. Milks
Salvete omnes! (Hello, everyone!) Latin club is a club that revolves around celebrating and learning more about Greco-Roman culture. They are having their first meeting on the Ides of March (March 15th). You don’t have to be a Latin student to join. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Greek and Roman mythology, customs, and holidays in a fun and laid-back environment.

The club meets biweekly to discuss a topic chosen by the students. The club had their first meeting March 4th, and has their first discussion based meeting on the $15 minimum wage, March 18th,3 pm.
