Each year, the Academic Booster Club presents two special awards on Honors Night to Wheeler Teachers/Counselors who have gone “Above & Beyond,” giving their time and talents to help and encourage the students of Wheeler High School. We are asking parents and students to nominate teachers/counselors who they feel go the extra mile to make Wheeler the great school that it is.
Nominations are accepted here through April 24, 2017.
New this year, we will offer two scholarships to graduating seniors!
One $500 scholarship will be awarded to a Wheeler senior who has plans to attend a four- year college degree program next year, and another $500 scholarship will go to a student who plans on pursuing a two-year degree or technical certificate.

Anxiety hits us all at some point in our lives; however, for many aspiring college students, high-stakes testing brings anxiety levels to new heights and test performance to new lows. But there is hope! There are interventions that effectively reduce test anxiety and lead to performance gains.
Please join us in the Wheeler Media Center on Wednesday, April 26 at 6 pm to hear Jed Applerouth discuss some of those practical strategies. Both parents and students are welcome to attend! To register, click here.
The College Board added another test date for 2017: August 26!
