Pre-ACT Sign Ups
The Pre-ACT is a test that helps students prepare for college entrance exams. Students who take the Pre-ACT will experience the time management required for the ACT and will see what areas they need to work on before they take the actual college entrance exam. Registration for the Pre-ACT begins Thursday, January 28th and extends to Wednesday, February 10th. Freshmen and Sophomores who wish to take the test must register in the counselor’s office with Mrs. Henderson and there is a cost of $14.00 to the student. The Pre-ACT will be given on Saturday, February 20, 2021 at 9:00 AM.

Senior Scholarship Opportunities
Have you caught someone being a Bulldog?
Have you caught a student or a WHS staff member "Being a Bulldog"? We want to hear about it!
What is being a Bulldog? The American Kennel Club describes a Bulldog as kind but courageous, full of tenacity, friendly, and loyal companions. It is fitting that we are the Wylie Bulldogs because those are the qualities we strive for our campus to exude.
We believe that it is important to recognize those that are examples of kindness, friendliness, loyalty, and courage. Students and staff members can be nominated by students, staff, and community members. It is the hope of WHS that Bulldogs will inspire other Bulldogs to continue to show these characteristics. Nominate someone here!
