WHS Cheerleaders Perform in London

The WHS Spiritline attended the UCA summer camp in June at Illinois State University. At the camp, cheerleaders had the opportunity to try out for the All-American team. Participants must perform a cheer, dance, and jump for judging by the Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) staff. The number of members chosen is typically the top 10% of campers. There were approximately 12 cheerleaders chosen at this particular camp. All-American cheerleaders come from the camps held throughout the United States.

Carly Van Duyne, Brianna Franzen, and Kaitlyn McKim were among those chosen for the All-American team at the UCA camp. Carly and Brianna chose to go on the trip, held from December 26-January 2. These two talented, young ladies spent months hosting a variety of fundraisers to help cover the cost of this trip. 

The Wilmington 209-U School District would like to congratulate these young ladies on their dedication to the sport that they love. Thank you for being excellent representatives of our schools! 

Students Exceed On 2017 PARCC Exams

Congratulations to all students exceeding standards on the PARCC exam! On Wednesday, January 17, the Wilmington School Board, superintendent, assistant superintendent, and building principals honorably presented 34 of our SIS and WMS students with certificates for exceeding standards on the 2017 PARCC exam. Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is the annual state assessment which measures students in grades 3-8 on their progress in English/reading and math. The PARCC assessments are extremely challenging exams. Overall, our Wilmington students surpassed the average student scores in Illinois by 10%. Our schools are moving in the right direction with these very difficult assessment tests. We appreciate your hard work and wish you the best as you continue your education in the Wilmington 209-U School District. Way to work hard students!
