A Club for Everyone

Clubs at Williamsport Area Middle School are designed to provide a variety of opportunities for students to explore different activities that may be of interest to them, helping build relationships and create well-rounded citizens in our school and community.

Clubs take place every Friday during Millionaire Block from mid-September through the end of the school year.  Clubs are a privilege, not a right, and failure to uphold expectations for academics, behavior, and attendance can exclude students from being able to participate in clubs.

Each club has an advisor who will guide students throughout the year, providing structure and instruction, if necessary.

Odyssey of the Mind

Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Kids apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and world level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program. 

Williamsport Area School District has a very proud tradition of all our schools participating at various levels of competition, with our students going as far as Odyssey of the Mind World Finals for several years. 

For more information about Odyssey of the Mind and how to get your child involved or become a volunteer, contact your school.
