Getting involved in extracurricular activities is a good way for students to meet new people, develop new skills, make a contribution and have some fun.
You can display your talents, develop your leadership and organizational abilities, learn to make decisions and manage your time, and enhance your people skills -- all traits that will help you in high school and beyond.
Look below for activities you can join, or start your own club -- contact the school office for details on how to proceed.
Be a part of the smooth running of our school by joining Student Government. Help plan social events and activities for students during the school year.

WIS Science Club was started in 2008 by students with a shared interest in science. Students decide on activities and fundraisers.
Typically, we meet each Friday afternoon at 2:50 in Room 111, where we have a short meeting followed by an activity. We also have a fundraiser about once a month. The money goes towards supplies and/or fieldtrips. A calendar of activities is created by the students and will be available online by the end of September.
Activities have included:
bubble logy chromatography making slime
making crystals making soap dissection
making robots making rockets making mouse trap race cars
