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.

Power of the Pen
PoP 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 PoP 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 at Wooster College in May. Perrysburg has been very successful in the past, taking multiple writers to the state level competition every year.
