Wheeler Hosted Congressman Tom Price and Superintendent Chris Ragsdale

On Wednesday, September 24, Congressman Tom Price and Superintendent Chris Ragsdale visited Wheeler High School. The tour was inspired by members of our Robotics Team/Circuitrunners who met Congressman Price this summer. More specifically, Zachary Cloud, Harris Minear, Jackson Palmer and Naim Vasaya were instrumental in inviting the Congressman and leading the tour. The goal of the visit was to highlight STEM opportunities at Wheeler. The tour went very well and both gentlemen were very impressed with all of our students. The best part was that the visit was totally initiated by our students. Thank you Congressman Price and Superintendent Ragsdale for taking the time to visit Wheeler High School.

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.
