From the Principal's Desk
From the Desk of Ms. McCarty-Stewart:
It is hard to believe that we have already reached the midway point of the second grading period. Students and teachers alike have been pushing themselves to achieve not only in the classroom but in extracurricular activities as well.
We recently celebrated the end of the first sports season with our Fall Awards Banquet. Coaches and players represented WHS by competing at a high level in all sports. Many of our student athletes earned the title of Scholar Athlete. Congratulations to our boys cross country team for winning the SCOL Championship.
Another hard working group of students is the WHS Marching Band which is led by Matt Spradlin. The Pride of Wilmington entertained crowds all season long and highlighted the season with a Superior rating at the State Competition.
Our Theater Department recently completed their fall play The Man Who Came to Dinner. This comedy was directed by Bryan Wallingford and featured a talented cast and crew.
As we move towards the latter part of the first semester there are a few reminders for parents and students. Talk with your students about their grades and setting goals for their academics. Be sure to check Progress Book often and stay in touch with us if you have concerns. Check the calendar on our website, as well as our building Facebook page often to stay in touch regarding upcoming events and other important dates at Wilmington High School!

Student of the Month
Students of the Month:
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.
