WHS leadership

Purpose

The purpose of ASB Leadership is to provide, by example, the opportunity for all Wilson students to develop strong leadership skills, such as: organization, communication, planning, accountability and responsibility. Through demonstration of these acquired skills, as well as incorporating AVID learning strategies and IB open – mindedness, Leadership students will help motivate the student  body to maintain an enhanced  equitable, inclusive, rigorous academic, as well as cultural environment.

Goals and Expectations

The primary goals of ASB are to create a memorable experience for all students on campus, to promote Mighty Mule unity and spirit, and to grow as student leaders.  ASB actively works to ensure that student activities and campus life are alive and well.

"When students wanted their voices to be heard, they turned to Leadership. In the new era our school leaders brought us the new and improved, "House of Representatives". These homeroom reps met monthly with Leadership to discuss inter-school matters."

Vision

Since the ASB requirement is for every grade level, we will insure that all students be involved in most of the student events for the school; this will help them understand what is going on in the school and figure out what we need to do next. We also expect these students to be outgoing, who will talk to any adult or student to come support Wilson in anyway necessary. Lastly, we want all students to succeed in different levels, which will help them communicate and be involved in anything in the future.

Mission

With the help of our parents, our community, and our staff, Woodrow Wilson High School will inspire our students to be successful through academics and extracurricular activities.

Structure

The ASB Cabinet, or student government, serves Wilson High School by voicing and addressing student opinions and needs, upholding the WHS ASB Constitution, overseeing the expenditures of student funds, raising funds through the Student Store, supporting and recognizing campus clubs and organizations, and sponsoring many school-wide programs and events

Working with Students

Students in Woodrow Wilson High School should get involved in the Leadership class because it’s a chance to grow to be a leader and have the skills that will be beneficial. Being part of this organization, will help you with time management, organizing school events, and having the chance to advocate for others. When in Leadership, you will have the chance to grow as a leader by taking charge for certain events, communicating with administration and have the chance to speak what’s on your mind.

Working for Students

Students should join leadership so they can be more involved with school events, gain communication skills and creative ideas. They will look forward to having a great school year, where they will be involved in the behind the scenes of events. They also will look forward in meeting other people that are also motivated to improve our school academically and socially. These students will grow as a leader in the leadership class through communicating to other students what events are taking place at school and talking to adults on how they also can be involved in the school; they also will take initiative in group work to make sure that everyone has an open-mind set that will benefit what they are working on.

"I couldn't wait to join Leadership because of all the opportunities that this organization ties into with my plans for college. For example, I learned how to take the initiative when it came to working on our Senior Hallway project."

Building a Community

Community Members should be involved in Leadership because it will help them be involved with their children’s school. Being involved with Leadership will give people the chance to unite and take part of community events. They will have the chance to communicate and create events for everyone. For example, fundraisers will help the school out with events and school dances. Community Members can bring new skills to the Leadership class.

Listening and Taking Action

We believe the community should be involved with leadership because it gives them the opportunity to be more involved with their children's school activities and school life as well. They should be involved in leadership to help share their prior knowledge and skills that will benefit our achievements. Our community members should look forward to help spread the word of our school events to get others to participate and to also gain feedback on how to improve. Our community will grow as a whole to lead because being involved in leadership shows how students will advocate for great events/opportunities and this will motivate the community to support our students.

How You'll Grow

In our 10th grade leadership class, you will learn how to:

  • create flyers for fundraiser

  • promote through social media for every event at our school

  • work within a larger/older group setting that involves multiple grade levels

 

All these skills/knowledge/experiences will be learned by being involved in:

  • multiple fundraisers throughout every grade level

"One of the biggest skills I've grown in was my ability to communicate accurately and within large group settings. During our Univision promotional event, I had to work with all our affiliates to represent a dedication towards excellence in our school community. "

Freshmen class

We are All Leaders

Faculty Members should be involved in Leadership so that they could learn about the activities hosted by leadership. Being more involved in Leadership will also help the students feel more support from their teachers/ staff members. If they were to get more involved in Leadership it will give the teachers an opportunity to gain skills they could carry into their class rooms.

Mentorship

We believe that the faculty should be involved because they are a huge part our school. They help us with a lot of our events, whether it's supervising or helping with paper work. We truly believe faculty should be involved with leadership because they help motivate students create a bright future. Our faculty should look forward in many events that will help create school spirit and also help our whole school come together as one. Faculty will also look forward in our students growing out of their comfort zones to make great opportunities for themselves. This will help faculty grow as a leader because they will help us advocate for a better future and also help us with anything we need.

How You'll Grow

In our 9th grade leadership class, you will learn how to:

  • create letter stencils 

  • work within a larger/older group setting

  • work/support others when asked to

  • fill out a fundraiser permit 

All these skills/knowledge/experiences will be learned by being involved in:

  • first Spirit Week which occurs around September of each year

  • first fundraiser

  • Homecoming Parade during the fall
