Clubs and Organizations
Junior high is a wonderful time for students. In order for students to have the best experience at Harwood, we strongly encourage all students to join at least one club, organization or team. It is important for students to be involved in a positive activity outside the regular school day. Below is a current list of the club offerings at Harwood.
Adventures in Middle Earth - Russell Cranford A Table Top Role Playing Game inspired by The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings that operates off the D&D 5E ruleset. Smaug has been defeated, the Battle of Five Armies has been won, and Bilbo has returned to the Shire. But much danger still remains, and from the Orc-holds of the mountains to the dark and corrupt depths of Mirkwood a darkness waits, recovering its strength, laying its plans, and slowly extending its shadow... King Bards has sent out a call for brave adventurers to journey to Lake-town and assist him in restoring the glory of the North. Join Adventures in Middle Earth and follow in the footsteps of Bilbo, Thorin, Gandalf, Elrond, and Legolas. Adventuring times are Thursdays, 3:40 - 5:15pm, in Room C102 with Mr. Cranford. *Note: Maximum party size: 6 recurring adventuring positions. Maximum silent gallery size: 12 observers. If party size drops below 6, an observer will be offered a position with the adventuring group.
