Students are encouraged to find their passions and explore them with others.
Club leaders presented the panoply of activities available to Williams students at assembly in the fall. Below is a quick synopsis of the many extracurricular offerings. If a student doesn’t see something to his or her liking, consider contacting Ms. Kleinfelder to learn how to start a club.
The mission of the Aerospace Club is to introduce the science and application of aviation and aerospace to the students of The Williams School through hands-on activities such as UAV flight, model rocket launch, simulator flight, and FAA course study.
Student Leaders: Peter Littlefield '18, Nick Moukawsher '18, John Pereira '18

Student Leaders: Colin Kronholm '18, Callum Tresnan '18, Carolyn Xenelis '18, Mia Taylor '18
The mission of this club is to make writing and literature a larger part of the Williams community, and to encourage kids to feel more comfortable and indulge in their writing abilities and literature interests. During club meetings students will share their writing works or favorite writing works with the rest of the club. The goal for this club is to hopefully have a writing competition among of the whole school for whomever chooses to participate!
This group focuses on issues pertaining to social diversity. The goal of this group is to enhance knowledge and awareness in the community while promoting the uniqueness of every individual as well as under-represented groups, cultures, and views. The group is committed to collaboration, to educating themselves and the community, and to cultivating open-mindedness and a climate of acceptance.
The Service Committee is a student organization that focuses on community service and the environment. Whether volunteering, performing at a Coffee House, serving at Hungry Lunch, organizing a Food Drive or helping plan Earth Day, there are events and projects for students to get involved in all year long.

The Student Government is the governing board of the student body. It provides a forum for the discussion of matters of student concern and is the means by which student suggestions can be brought to the attention of the administration and faculty. The members of the Student Government are its elected officers (Chairs) and class representatives.
Events: Trivia Night, Spirit Week, Dodgeball, and School Store, and Williams gear
Student Leaders: Colin Kronholm '18, Callum Tresnan '18, Katia Bourganos '18, Samson Dorfman '19, George Sun '18
The Williams Street Players will provide an opportunity for young actors to learn ensemble musical theatre numbers and short scenes. The Players hope to take the performance to retirement communities and nursing homes in the future.
The mission of the club is to give interested students and school employees an opportunity to explore natural areas. We will, to paraphrase Thoreau, travel a good deal in our area, and, it is hoped, approach the world with a sense of curiosity and wonder at the elements of it that, though nearby, may be insufficiently appreciated.
The club is open to all students and school employees. Interested members will meet during club time to share experiences from past trips and make plans for future trips. Saunters will take place after school and should take about an hour. I expect to have saunters once a week at most. The first few will take place in the area such as Mamacoke Island, the arboretum, and other Conn. College properties, and the land around The Williams School athletic complex. Future trips may go to other places depending on the interests of participants.
The Williams School aims to foster the intellectual, moral, aesthetic, and physical development of young women and men in preparation for college, a lifetime of learning, and active participation in a changing society.
