Any and all are encouraged to watch or participate whenever they can.

JoJo Club

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Club is a club about the anime/manga series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, which tells the story of the Joestar family, whose various members discover they are destined to take down supernatural foes using unique powers that they possess. The manga is split up into 8 unique parts, each following the story of one member of the Joestar family. Each week, we watch one episode from each of the five television series of JoJo and critically analyze the characters and storyline, debating over unique criticisms and theories. If time allows, we also play JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure the video game. The purpose of the club is for students to bond over a common interest, and to intrigue new members to expand their interest to the show. The club runs every Monday (unless specified otherwise) from 3-6 pm. Members are not required to stay the full time. All are invited to join at their convenience, and leave as they please.

Literary Magazine

Grigio is Salesian High School’s latest student-produced literary magazine. It features short stories, poems, and visual art created by our community. As a club, it offers students a chance to hone their creative voices and collaborate with their peers and teachers to craft new stories, be they high-fantasy sagas or reflective, non-fiction essays. Now in its third year, Grigio hopes to continue expanding as a multimedia publication, hosting student readings after school and recording spoken word versions of the stories its pages hold.
