Wahkiakum High School
Spirit Song


On the banks of the mighty river
Stands the school of the golden west
It's our alma mater Wa-Ki-Hi
Standing higher than the rest
She will be with us forever
And our teams cannot be downed
You can always hear the thunder
As our opponents hit the ground
Yes, it's all for Wa-Ki-Hi
Yes, it's all for Wa-Ki-Hi
You can shout it to the sky
Hail to Wahkiakum
Our alma mater on the hill.

 
Student Clubs and Activities

As an integral part of curriculum and schedule, Wahkiakum High School offers students are offered a variety of clubs, experiences, volunteer programs, and community-based activities each Friday through the Mule Success CORE/FLEX Time Program.

Here is a list of the most of the clubs and activities available, though the exact offerings are dependent on student interest.

WSD Broadcasting Club

Initially, the Broadcasting Club got started by working with the NFHS Network to air Mules athletic games in "real time."

The experience was such a great success, the Broadcasting Club decided to create its own WSD YouTube Channel to produce and air both live streams of athletic games as well as to post videos of plays, school assemblies, Mules sports games and game highlights, and other important events, such as the Veterans' Day Assembly and the assembly for thanking the community for supporting the Doernbecher Childrens' Hospital Fundraising Week.

Check out the WSD Broadcasting Club's YouTube Channel for the latest films and videos produced by student and staff contributors.

Performing Arts

Many of our students participate in the Wahkiakum High School Band, as part of the standard course schedule. Others get involved on Friday Club Days in Choir, Rock & Roll Congress, Drama and Theatre Arts, and the Art Club.

In January/2018, the WHS Drama Club won 3 major awards at a High School One Act festival. This article in the Wahkiakum Eagle describes the play, introduces the actors, and offers an insiders' tour of all the moving parts of preparing a theatre production. Congratulations to our WHS Drama Club!!

Knowledge Bowl

Every year, Wahkiakum High School puts together an outstanding Knowledge Bowl Team—frequently advancing to District and State Competitions

Knowledge Bowl is a state-wide program in Washington state. Each high school creates a team of students for an interdisciplinary, academic competition. During the state tournament, teams participate in several rounds of questions including written multiple-choice and oral rounds—and, in case you are curious, here are the answers.

FFA (Future Farmers of America)

Wahkiakum High School FFA (Future Farmers of America) is very active in the Wahkiakum community. Recent projects have included planting trees for wetland mitigation, participating in a forestry competition, butchering meat during hunting season, participating in fire safety training, providing support for the Wahkiakum County Fair, and participating in Wahkiakum Chamber fund-raisers.

WHS Students Create Videos
Supporting The 2016-2017 School Year Theme
"Being Different, Belonging Together"
with Mike Feurstein and the Don't Wait Project

Image: Logo for Wahkiakum High School Video Project Activities Last spring, with generous funding support from the Wahkiakum Community Network in partnership with our GearUp grant, Mike Feurstein, with the Don't Wait Project, came out and worked with WHS students on authoring and production of PSA videos on topics related to bullying, relationship abuse, and anger and depression.

Mike offers very positive messages and engages all the students by assigning film writing, creating, acting, music, lighting, filming and production roles based on each student's interest.

With Mike's coaching, the students design and make their own videos. Lighting solutions were supplied by the Wahkiakum Broadcasting Club. The camera, audio, and other production equipment were provided by Mike.

The students say they found Mike to be fun, inspirational, and engaging, giving them an outstanding, thought-provoking opportunity to tell THEIR stories THEIR way.

The result? Three high-quality Antibullying PSA videos, along with three "behind-the-scenes" videos, documenting the filming process for each of the three PSA videos.

Check out these videos NOW!. You will be amazed. AND... THANK YOU Mike Feurstein!
