Senior Show- This November production, an hour of music and comedy, is an opportunity for all twelfth-graders to have their moment in the spotlight...literally. There are no auditions; any senior who wants to be in the show is automatically in it. The advisor provides the scripts, which are written specifically for the particular groups the seniors create. Scripts are distributed one month before show time, and participants are expected to attend weekly rehearsals.
The Envirothon is a environmental science based competition that combines classroom learning and outdoor activities. This exposure to nature and seeing how humans impact the natural world provides invaluable lessons for understanding ecosystems and our environment.
At the Envirothon, teams of five high school students compete in field testing using their knowledge in five topic areas – Soils and Land Use, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, and Environmental Issues. A current environmental issue is chosen each year as the “hot topic” for the focus of this station as well as the oral presentation component. (Source: envirothonpa.org)
Last year, the Envirothon club qualified to represent Mifflin County High School at the state level competition.

Journalism Club: This club is for those students who have a desire to contribute to the school newspaper—as photographers, writers, researchers, page designers, cartoonists, etc.—but do not have time in their schedule to take Journalism as an elective. Published 3-4 times per year, the paper is printed on The Sentinel presses and, like The Sentinel, is a full-color broadsheet publication. Meetings are held one day per week—students may attend either a morning or afternoon session.
Book Club: Book Club is for students who are avid readers who want to explore fiction and non-fiction works beyond the curriculum. Meetings are held over light refreshments in Room B301 on the first Wednesday of each month during which students and faculty advisers engage in lively discussion of the works and as a group select the following month’s reading. Each year, the club reads at least one book or series from which a movie either has been or is being made, and we view that film together. Books are from a variety of genre. Book Club also features a movie night each month during which we watch and discuss a film of literary and cultural merit.
