Our Students

Wahkiakum High School students have many opportunities to take on leadership roles and excel in academics.

Education Is #1 at Wahkiakum High School

Wahkiakum High School is proud to be an accredited high school that offers a caring, nurturing environment with experienced and creative teachers and staff, who focus on education as preparation for the future. In fact, the vast majority of our graduates continue their education at a community college or 4-year university.

Our faculty believes that learning takes place not only in the classroom, but also in the community-at-large.

ASB: Associated Student Body

Wahkiakum High School has a very active ASB and here's the most recent WHS ASB Fund Balance Report.

Want to get in on the fun and also save money at MS and HS sports events, for both home and away games? Purchase an ASB card that's good for 1 school year for just $40.00 at the HS office with a check made payable to Wahkiakum High School.

Each year, our student leadership team plans a variety of student activities.

The craziest week of the year is Homecoming Spirit Week, culminating with the Homecoming football game on Friday at 7:00pm (and the announcement of the Homecoming Court), and a dance on Saturday evening.

To show our spirit, there is a competition between the classes to see who has the most spirit. The walls are decorated and there are pep assemblies and dress-up days for the 4 classes.

Veterans' Day Assembly

For our November/2016 assembly, the WHS Leadership Club presented filmed interviews highlighting the service of three local veterans and long-time residents of Wahkiakum County — Mr. Tom Irving, Mr. Ralph Kenner and Mr. Ralph Keyser.

Each year, our WHS students produce an unforgettable Veterans' Day Assembly (link opens a YouTube video). The program includes at least one distinguished speaker from the US military, readings by students and music by the WHS Band and Choir. In English classes, students write essays about what it means to be an American and several are selected to read their essays at the assembly. The program also includes the traditional and moving candlelight ceremony, where each student names and honors a Veteran in attendance or one living in the community.

Our Foreign Exchange Student Program

For the 2016-2017 school year, we are welcoming three exchange students, including Natthanon "Earth" Sakworawich from Thailand, Long Nguyen from Vietnam, and "Steven" Yu Xiao Rui from China. All three are involved with the Mules basketball teams. Recently, the Wahkiakum Eagle ran a story about how these three put together a weekend-long Lunar New Year celebration they will never forget!

WHS Student Orientation

As the photo shows, it's a fun-filled morning as we welcome students to Wa-Ki-Hi. They meet their teachers, meet other students, tour the campus, get their locker, and learn tips from 11th and 12th grade Link Leaders!

Many thanks to our amazing Link Leaders — their leadership skills and positive attitudes made this year's Orientation an enthusiastic and spirited way to start the year.
 

AWSL Leadership Conference: October 14-16, 2016

Long high schools, with support from Kalama and Wahkiakum high schools.

Each year, the AWSL conference is hosted by a different high school and is planned by the local student leaders. Altogether, 16 WHS students attended the conference and 6 were on the planning/hosting team.

A highlight of the annual conference is the home stay program. Student delegates are invited into the homes of the local community. This year, Wahkiakum County families housed 64 students!

Among the activities offered are small group workshops taught by student leaders and the conference service project. This year, these students gathered in the Kalama High School gym to help prepare 100,000 meal bags for local food banks. Here's a great article in The Daily News, where one of our WHS students, Jacob Hammond, is pictured and quoted!

Here's a big thank you to those in our community who hosted students and others who helped with the service project. The weekend was a HUGE success!

Mental Health Awareness Week: May 1-5, 2017

Several Wahkiakum High School Clubs joined together with the support of Wahkiakum Health and Human Services to educate the student body about Mental Health in early May.

During Awareness Week, students dressed in a different color each day, made posters for the hallways, held discussion groups during Mule Success Time, read facts about mental health over the intercom, and created a resource of support services to hand out.

It was a very successful and educational week — a big thank-you goes to Jasmin Lindholm, Karla Gates, Wahkiakum Health and Human Services, and our WHS students who made this all happen.

Download a PDF with more information about WHS Awareness Week, about how the media presents these issues (such as the 13 Reasons Why Netflix series), and links to a variety of resources to help students, parents and educators continue to have on-going discussions about the various topics addressed during Mental Health Awareness Week.
