Activities - WissWatch

Welcome to our WissWatch page where you will find all the news and information about the great co- and extra-curricular opportunities at Wissahickon High School.

WHS is proud to sponsor more than 35 diverse clubs, activities and programs. Co-curriculars are directly connected to a course of study; extra-curriculars are outside of the realm of the curriculum. We encourage students to join an activity to meet people and have fun, learn more about the things that interest you or try something completely new. There's something for everyone - music, drama, robotics, debate and speech, community service, academic clubs and more! Check our WissWatch page often to see club information.

To support and encourage student participation in activities, the School Board voted to eliminate the $50 annual Activities Fee beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. The fee was identified as a possible deterrent to student engagement in activities, which is a critical component of providing a well-rounded education. Studies show that students who participate in co-and extra-curricular activities have more confidence and creativity, higher academic performance, better relationships at school, and improved team and leadership skills.

Club meetings and activities information is available in the weekly WHS Happenings. WHS Happenings is posted in the news section on the WHS webpage and in the news feature of the WSD mobile app!
