As of last Monday, the Jimmy Carter Glee Club has began to meet during lunch on Mondays and Friday in room E-105. The club, as of now, is only for fun and as a way for students to explore the arts. Esmeralda Loeras, a freshman, along with Mrs.Robles are the ones who began the Glee Club. A Glee Club is a singing and dancing club created by students as a way to an enjoyable time and make memories. These clubs foster happiness and joy using the Fine Arts programs.
“They often sing popular music from all time period and help students find their voice.“ The Glee club sings music ranging from the 15th to 21st century..” said the pincetongleeclub.com
Glee clubs are intended to help and encourage students to find their voice. They also allow their members to be heard through music giving them a sense of belonging. Esmeralda Loeras was inspired by the show on Netflix entitled “Glee”.
“In Glee, the club was always picked on and seen as losers but together they grew a bond that made them stronger. I felt inspired and I thought the voices I’d hear in the halls deserved to be heard,” said Loeras
Glee Clubs help students express themselves in a fun and safe environment. Esmeralda was also encouraged to create a Glee club so that students could find a voice they never knew they had.
“I love to sing and I saw that many people liked to sing as well but were just embarrassed to be heard. I felt like all they needed was a little push and a sense of belonging… A place where they can feel like they can be themselves.” said Esmeralda
In closing, the Jimmy Carter Glee club has been started and is ready to help and give students confidence.
