From the Principal's Desk
Dear WHS Students & Families,
Welcome Back WHS Students. Thank you to our community, staff and Board of Education for supporting the 1:1 initiative. The Chromebooks will allow each student to increase skill development in collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, digital literacy, and global awareness. This is an exciting time to be a Hurricane.
WHS has adopted new resources for Math and Social Studies. Our students will have access to resources that provide real world application, access to technology, and support materials to help each individual learner. We look forward to sharing our new resources with our students.
At WHS our students will be preparing for college and career in every class. Students now have access to additional advanced placement courses and high interest elective classes. WHS is proud to offer a strong learning environment.
Success starts with coming to school every day and on time. We have high expectations that students arrive to school before the bell rings for class at 7:50. Each student will be expected to arrive to every class on time and ready to learn. Strong attendance is an important life skill.
Students at WHS will be using technology each day to enhance learning. It is our expectation that students will eliminate the distractions of cell phones and social media during classroom time. We want every student to have the best opportunity to learn and achieve.
School starts on August 17, 2016. Each student will report to their 5th Bell class in the morning for back to school orientation. We will meet for the first three days of school in 5th bell for technology training.
WHS is ready for a great school year. I am grateful for our staff, students, parents and community for making learning a priority. Please continue to check our Webpage, FaceBook and follow us on Twitter for updated information about the many great things going on in Wilmington.

WHS Building Calendar
At Wilmington High School, we strive to develop versatile students who can thrive in a variety of work environments. The WHS staff is committed to developing well-rounded students, offering comprehensive courses in a variety of fields. Teachers work diligently to provide the best learning environment for all students and provide them with the resources to succeed not only at school, but in the real world.
We want students to walk away fully satisfied with their time at WHS, so we strive to make participation in multiple clubs and sports as easy as possible. Coaches and club leaders cooperate to promote synergy and develop a sense of community within the school. Wrestlers are acting in theatrical productions. Cross country runners are superfanning at football games. We’re a family, and we aim to consolidate all of our strengths to build a collective culture we can all take pride in— Cane Pride.
We encourage our students to be active citizens outside of school as well. There are a variety of community service projects to be involved in, whether it be via Interact, Junior Council on World Affairs, Student Council, or Student Government.
That being said, you should know that school is what you make of it. There are plenty of things to do, and if you make an effort to connect with other students and staff, and to contribute to the community, you can make high scho
ol an unforgettable experience.
From the senior student leadership representatives, we welcome you to Wilmington High School, and we hope you make the most out of your time as a Wilmington Hurricane.
