Feel like drawing? Love anime? Join the Anime club – it’s up and running. This club started several years ago with just five students and has evolved to include as many as forty at times. At the meetings, students (“Anime-niacs”) talk about their favorite anime characters, play cards, trade anime books, draw, and make new friends. Ms. Carnie is the club’s supervisor, but students do all of the teaching and drawing. All students are welcome!
What do you get when you combine creativity and a desire to do good deeds? Art into Action! In addition to painting ceiling tiles to beautify classrooms, showing our work in galleries, and taking a field trip to San Francisco, our artistic Miners will create work for local children’s hospitals, senior centers, animal advocacy groups and other non-profits! We will also seek a space to do a mural and brainstorm potential “flash mob” ideas (but don’t tell -it’ll be a surprise:-)! ALL ARE WELCOME!

Do ideas whirl around in your head like the spin cycle on the washing machine? Are you looking for an outlet for your pent up teenage angst?

Do you like gardening? Are you interested in the environment? Check out Sutter’s H.O.T. new club – Hands On Trees.

Jazz Band Club is a ‘big band’ style jazz ensemble where students will learn the fundamentals of playing this style of music and prepare, as a group, for performance. This is not a class where students will be taught how to play a new instrument, so all participants must already be proficient on their primary instrument and know how to read music. It is not required, however, to have band as your elective. See Ms. Wassum in Room 110 at lunch or after school for more information.
The Knitting Club has returned to Sutter with new projects for crafty students. Club members will learn all the standard techniques as well as unusual skills like knitting with five needles. They will then use the skills to knit personal items as well as blankets to donate to those in need. The club is open to everyone from beginners to advanced. No experience needed.
Are you a member of the LGBTQ+ community? If not, would you like to show your support for people who are? Either way, you have a place here. This club welcomes people of all genders and sexualities to engage in open discussion and activism. We meet weekly to discuss issues relating to queer-straight relations and to provide a safe space for students to express thoughts, worries and questions and share advice with peers. Don’t let the fear of being different hold you back from changing the world! And remember, you don’t have to “come out” to come out to the club!

Joining Sutter’s debate team is a great way for your voice to be heard. In the meetings, participants discuss current events and prepare to compete in tournaments. Sutter’s team is nationally recognized in both individual and team events. Mr. Baradat, the club’s advisor, said that members need to, “want to debate, work to debate, and have fun debating.”
Sutter Strings is a year-long afterschool program offered completely free of charge where students of all levels can learn to play a stringed instrument. The club is led by retired Sutter orchestra teacher Ms. Vigil. Instruments are provided to participants who do not have their own. The only requirement is a commitment to show up every week on time and to practice at home between rehearsals. The orchestra will perform later in the season to show what they have learned.
