Middle School Clubs

Merrill Middle School offers multiple academic and extracurricular clubs for students to participate in and enjoy. Getting involved in different groups inspires friendships, new interests and involvement. We offer a wide variety of opportunities for students. Our clubs and organizations include:

Book Club

Book Club meets to talk about new books! We choose a book each month to read anddiscuss as a group…but even if you don’t read it, you can come to hear about more great stories. Participants pay around $10 each book, but some we are able to get for free from outside sources and fundraising. At Christmas there is a book exchange and pizza party. We volunteer to help with the preschool Christmas party as well. This year, we are hoping for more author visits and opportunities outside of the building. Grades 6-12 welcome!

Chess Club

The Chess Club will meet 2x monthly to provide an opportunity for students to play chess. Beginning players are encouraged to attend and will be taught how to play by more experienced student players. Students in grades 6-12 may participate.


The MS/HS Choir meets every Wednesday to provide an opportunity for students to explore the passion of singing and performance. All levels of experience are encouraged to attend!  Students in grades 6-12 may participate.


Knitting club meets after school at student’s availability. Knitting club is for new and experienced knitters. We have a relationship with Twisted Warp and Skein in Merrill and often visit them during the school day for help and instruction.
