Clubs & Activities

Perrysburg Junior High School offers a range of extracurricular activities, such as music, academic clubs and sports for students to learn the values of teamwork, responsibility, physical strength and endurance, competition, diversity, and a sense of culture and community. These activities reinforce the lessons learned in the classroom, where students apply academic skills in a real-world context, and are thus considered an important part of the Junior High experience.

Girls STEM Club
This is a science club for female students at Perrysburg Junior High School. Participants have the chance to compete against other members in science-related events; tap into STEM resources in our area; participate in Citizen Science activities; plan, develop and facilitate project-based and inquiry-based activities; work with a mentor scientist and have a whole lot of fun while thinking and learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Mock Trial
Students act as witnesses and attorneys to argue cases involving popular literary characters. Students read and analyze witness statements drawn from the characters in the books, which culminates at a state showcase in Columbus.

The winning team and the top four individuals advance to the State Math Counts competition at Columbus State Community College.

Pen Ohio
Pen Ohio is an interscholastic creative writing competition that is unique to the State of Ohio. It was founded to give creative writers an outlet and a competition where they may put their skills to the test against other writers. There are three events during the Pen Ohio tournament year: the district event, the regional event and the state finals. Students must earn their way to the regional and state events. After the district event, the top 50% of writers move on to the regional event. Only 20% of writers will move on from the regionals to the state final competition in Clumbus in May. Perrysburg has been very successful in the past, taking multiple writers to the state level competition every year.
