    Meetings vary


    Class of 2022

We look forward to meeting all of you!


    Freshmen orientation will take place on Wednesday, August 15, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Lunch will be included.  This will be a time for you to become familiar with the culture at Woodstock North High School and to understand the layout of the building.  We know that the Class of 2022 will bring in a unique set of talents and provide WNHS the opportunity to become a better place because you are all there! 


    • Understand the THUNDER WAY
    • Become familiar with the campus and how to get around
    • Learn how the building works (ID Cards, policies, etc.)
    • Introduction & Overview of student activities (e.g., clubs, sports, homecoming)

What Every Freshman Needs to Know

  • (As developed by students at WNHS)

    1. Always get your work done and get your grades up - from the very beginning to your last day.  It may not seem important and you may have “better” things to do, but your education should always be a priority.
    2. Don’t be afraid to try out for sports or to join a club.  You will meet new people that you have things in common with.
    3. Don’t be afraid of trying an AP or honors class.  You get the chance to learn more and go deeper into the topic being covered!
    4. Listen to your teachers!  There’s always a reason to why they talk to you about something.
    5. Put your phones down.  Conversations can wait until after school, but your education can’t.  Also, you don’t want to miss out on life!
    6. Don’t stay up all night studying.  Study for no more than 3 hours and make sure to get 7-8 hours of sleep.
    7. Establish relationships with staff.  They may be the ones who will write your letters of recommendation later in high school.
    8. Know where the counseling offices are.  Counselors are there to help choose classes, help if you are struggling in a class, can help with the college process, and can help if you feel like you just need someone to talk to.
    9. Study for finals!

Freshman Elections

    The Class of 2022 President has many responsibilities. The Class President is the voice of the the Freshmen Class. This is the person in charge or helping to organize activities for homecoming (parade float, window decorating, and class spirit), developing creative fundraising opportunities to help keep cost of your Junior prom low, and is the liaison between Student Council, Class Advisors, and the Freshmen Class. If you believe you are someone who can communicate well with others, this is the role for you! Elections will take place within the first couple weeks of school! Be sure to reach out to your Class Advisors if you are interested (Mrs. Harmer and Mrs. Telander)!
