Japanese Culture / Jr. Japan Bowl Club

The Japanese Culture Club is led by South Lakes HS Japanese Honor Society students who started in the JI program in 1st grade and have continued their Japanese studies through their school careers. These high school seniors are great role models and excited about Japanese culture. They create and present the material and club participants have fun while learning. Participants will play Japanese games, learn Japanese songs and dances, pop culture, hear Japanese stories, and create Japanese art.

Japanese Culture Club participants will have the opportunity to participate in an exciting trivia competition during the Third Annual Junior Japan Bowl. Students will practice answering the Jr. Japan Bowl trivia questions at our weekly meetings. All club participants will compete against each other in a Preliminary Jr. Japan Bowl at Fox Mill. Students selected for the final Jr. Japan Bowl will compete against Great Falls Elementary in the Spring.
