The Environmental Enthusiasts Club is for 9 - 12 graders who enjoy experiencing and protecting the outdoors. Students participate in fundraisers and service projects that support environmental concerns. The Club advisor is Mr. Bradley.
The Envirothon Team is open to all students. The Envirothon is a county, state and national competition that challenges students to think critically about the natural world and their role in it. Students work after school learning more on topics such as forestry, soils and land use, aquatics, wildlife and a current environmental topic (changes yearly). Two teams of 5 are chosen to compete at the county competition. Please see Mrs. Medvec for more information.
Currently, more than 8,000 students and more than 800 teachers from 300 middle and high schools participate in the yearly Pennsylvania Science Olympiad (PASO), along with more than 1,000 faculty, staff, and college student volunteers. Winning teams move on to the National Competition. The challenging and motivating events of PASO align with PA Science Standards, as well as the National Science Education Standards. Any students interested in participating should see Mr. Johnson.
