CHECK IT OUT®
February 18 at 2:00 pm

On Wednesday, February 18th at 2:00, Wheeler’s Healthcare Science and Health programs are hosting an assembly for all junior and senior girls. CHECK IT OUT® is a breast cancer awareness program for junior and senior female students in Metro Atlanta high schools. For over 20 years, Greater Atlanta Hadassah has partnered with Northside Hospital to bring the CHECK IT OUT® program to schools in Fulton, Dekalb, and Gwinnett counties. Wheeler will be the first Cobb County high school to present the program.  If you do not want your daughter to participate, please contact Sharon Hunt at sharon.hunt@cobbk12.org.

Funded through a grant from It’s the Journey, the 2-day walk, this important program strives to educate young women about breast cancer – the leading cause of cancer-related death among females in the United States – and the importance of early detection. The program consists of a 50 minute presentation by Northside Hospital’s nurse/breast health educator, a brief talk by a breast cancer survivor, an age appropriate video that shows how to perform breast self-examination (BSE), BSE practice with breast models, and a period for questions and answers. Each girl receives a kit containing a latex mini-breast, a shower card illustrating BSE, literature from the American Cancer Society and Northside Hospital, and a pencil and index card for questions.

Since its national inception in 1992, CHECK IT OUT® volunteers have taught BSE to more than 1,000,000 high school girls in 35 states.

Wildcat Nation!

This year Wheeler Athletics will sponsor a tailgate party before each home football game.  The Wheeler tailgate party is a social event / pep rally that will be held in the south end of our bus port. Tailgating, an American tradition, involves playing loud music, participating in leisure games, and grilling food. Tailgate parties usually occur in parking lots at stadiums, before games.  Many people participate even if their vehicles do not have a tailgate. In schools and communities throughout the United States, there are athletic departments, coaches and parents of student athletes who rely on pre-game tailgating parties to build community and support for their program and team. Wheeler’s Tailgate was developed to energize the Wildcat Nation and establish a strong core of support year after year. 

Wheeler’s Tailgate:

When:  Before every home Varsity Football game at 4:30 PM

Where:  Bus Port Bay - adjacent to café, Fieldhouse, and bus pavilion.
