Athena Middle School Clubs and Activities

  • ATMS Clubs/Extracurricular Activities (Grades 6-8):

    Greece Athena's History Club: Explore the Roc! We will focus on learning about and traveling to local sites/ locations with historical and/ or educational connections. Past places we have explored have included the Susan B Anthony House, the George Eastman Museum, the Monroe County Courthouse, Mt. Hope Cemetery, the Charlotte Lighthouse, The Rochester Museum and Science Center, and more! We usually meet about twice a month. One meeting will be to learn about and plan for an upcoming trip, and the other meeting will be the trip. Announcements are made to let members know of meeting dates and times, so pay close attention as the dates vary depending on the schedule of our trips. We provide transportation to and from Athena, but we ask that families pick up students from Athena directly after our trips. Our goal has always been to run this club at no cost to students, so there will be a fundraiser or two to help fund our trips.   Please see Dan Novellin in Rm. 328 if you are interested or have any questions or email: Alan.
