A Letter from the Principal

Welcome to Wheeler High School 

 Home of the Wildcats! 

 Dear Students and Parents:

 Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Wheeler High School, home of the Wildcats!

I encourage parents to browse through the student handbook and become familiar with the   contents even though it is designed primarily for the students. You will notice the handbook covers rules/regulations/procedures, academic planning, activities and clubs to get involved with, some behavior policies and consequences for inappropriate behavior, and other general information. It is impossible to include all of the information and knowledge about Wheeler in a small handbook. You must use common sense and ask questions if you don’t know the answer. Making good decisions will yield outstanding results.

Student learning is the chief priority of the school. Wheeler pledges its resources to the development of the whole student, engaging the community through relevance and rigor, emphasizing citizenship, and celebrating diversity. The Wheeler staff is committed to continuous improvement and will challenge you to be a self-directed lifelong learner. To develop those skills you must plan for success. Use this handbook as a resource as you navigate your way through the school year.

The last bit of advice is to enjoy your high school career. The high school years are full of friendships, activities, trips, and experiences that you will remember for a lifetime. The entire Wheeler staff is committed to providing the environment needed for an outstanding high school education. When you graduate with a Wheeler High School diploma, the world is yours
for the taking!
