Athena Middle School Clubs and Activities
Students are encouraged to get involved in any of the following school clubs and activities:
ACADEMIC CHALLENGE BOWL
Academic Challenge Bowl is a jeopardy style quiz-bowl club open to 6th-8th graders. All subject areas are covered, along with sports and pop culture. We meet weekly starting in November and compete against each other during practices at Athena, and compete against other schools in the area during the winter months.
Athena Cares is a community service group, open to grades 6-8, whose activities include organizing fundraisers, community outreach event participation, and promoting its work throughout the school, as well as via social media outlets. Students will hold leadership positions, and be central to all aspects of planning and activities. The group will meet approximately twice monthly.

Students will meet every week. Students should listen to the morning announcements for specific dates.
Explore science, math, and technology from a hands on perspective. Students will use Lego robotics to problem solve, program, and develop a team connection.
History Club is open to all students at Athena Middle School. We plan to meet about once a month to prepare to take a number of field trips throughout the year to historical sites in the Rochester area. Field trips will occur after school or on weekends. Field trips may include Rochester Museum and Science Center, the Charlotte Lighthouse, Mt. Hope Cemetery, and more! Hope you can join us!
