New Chapter of NJAHS by Peter Curran

Starting Tuesday, September 3rd, our new 8th grade lunch group will start recruiting members. The impetus for the new group is the annual drop-off in art club attendance for 8th graders. I have been told that the high, frenetic energy of 6th grade art club attendees can be a bit much for our 8th graders. To meet this need for a calmer, more grounded experience, we’ll begin meeting during 8th grade lunch on C Days.

Some areas for exploration will be community-based arts activities, field trips, and connecting with our WHS counterparts.
