Strath Haven Middle School Anime Club
Do you like watching anime or reading manga? Do you spend your free time crafting cosplays, writing fanfiction, or drawing fanart? Are you interested in Japanese culture? If you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you’re curious about any of these things and want to find out more, SHMS’s new Anime Club is for you!
Sponsored by Frau Shipeck and Ms. Domsky!
How did it come to pass that the German teacher is the Anime Club supervisor?
Well, firstly, Frau Shipeck will do (nearly) anything for students. Secondly, Frau Shipeck has also always had an interest in Japanese culture. She has actually taken Japanese courses in university in Pittsburgh, as well as in Rostock, Germany*. She even had the opportunity to visit Japan and guest teach in a German class at a Japanese school! There was also that one time she danced in a promotional video for a certain prefectural government project... Being a cultural ambassador is GREAT!
(*Frau Shipeck's Japanese is very rudimentary, however!)
We meet Thursdays in room C327 from 2:30-3 PM, unless announced otherwise. Come by whenever you can and stay as long as you would like to! Online students can also join via Zoom. Contact Frau Shipeck or see the SHMS Clubs Directory for more information.
