    bfink@salpointe.org

    The Salpointe Art Club is a place where all students can come and relax. It's a break from any challenges going on in students' lives and it provides a safe place for them to hang out and express themselves in any creative way they choose. We meet biweekly, with fun activities planned such as painting, sketching, creating and more. We also have a service project that we work on every semester, with a goal to use art in a way to improve and put a smile on the faces of the Salpointe community. In this club all are welcome and we strive to create a place that is friendly and fun for all.

  • Book Club

    Neil Diamente, Moderator
    ndiamente@salpointe.org

    Some read obsessively, some read to pass the time and some join to motivate themselves to pick up a book. Whatever the reason may be, Book Club members meet every other Friday in the library to discuss the book of choice. Sometimes it's to write a review, to meet an author, to evaluate the story, or sometimes it’s just to talk. In addition, the club members plan to attend the Tucson Festival of Books and participate in Young Adult Choices through the International Literacy Association, which allows the club to read books that have yet to be published, and evaluate them. Whatever the club does, the goal remains the same- discover and enjoy new literature, and spread our love of reading.

We help set tables, serve food, clean up and speak to the immigrants about their experiences going across the border both ways. We work with Catholic Community Services to find and help Dreamers gather their documents to apply for citizenship so they can have everything ready when they are asked for it. We help them put together an envelope with all the important documents. Click here for a video with more information about Kino Teens.
