The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.

All juniors will be taking the ACT this spring. If you are on Twitter, I encourage you to follow @actstudent for tips, strategies, and information about this college entrance exam.
Have a great weekend!
Tonight several former Packers will be inducted into the WFHS Hall of Fame. One group is the 1983 basketball players and cheerleaders. In the early 80′s, West Fargo DOMINATED basketball. West Fargo was still a small town, and when state basketball tournaments weren’t in Fargo, the town cleared out! There was a caravan of green and white to Bismarck. The stores closed with signs stating “Go Packers! Good luck at State!” It was an exciting time to be a Packer. Many of our community members (and those who moved away) have fond memories of this time. West Fargo Public Schools student enrollment increased 90% in the last 10 years. We are experiencing a different West Fargo than those in the 80′s. We have Packer Pride and Mustang Pride with the addition of another high school. West Fargo is still a great place to grow up. Enjoy it! Congratulations!
Happy WFHS Homecoming Week!
In the United States and Canada, powderpuff football games are flag football or touch football games between girls from junior and senior classes or cross-town school rivals. Funds from the ticket and concession sales for the game typically go to charity, the senior class, or to a dance. The games are an annual tradition at many high schools and universities
The term originates from the powder puff, the soft material used for the application of cosmetic face powder.
Many schools create T-shirts for the games. The games usually occur before homecoming.

It’s Beach Day at WFHS for Homecoming Week. Smiling at other people makes us feel better. Making eye contact with others (as you smile at them) can make us feel even better! Happy Beach Day!
Homecoming Week is a great week to SMILE at other people in the hallways and in your classes. Research (or the internet?) tells us that smiling makes us feel better. So, for all you hippies today, smile at each other! Happy Hippy Day for Homecoming Week!
Peace & Love, Man!
WFHS had a treat today for guitar students. They played Fearless with Kat Perkins today! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XBTQxla6rM&feature=youtu.be
She shared a great message for music students to always keep music in your life – even if only as a hobby. Not everybody can pay their bills with music, but you can always have music in your life.
