Seamless Summer Lunch Program

For the 4th year Sodexo and Wilmington City Schools will be able to offer free lunch to ALL kids 18 years and younger in the Wilmington area. 

So whether the kids are on campus for summer school, participating in an event at school, or they just want to come in from the heat and catch up with their friends, lunch is on us!  

Children don't have to be enrolled in WCS, nor the free lunch program to participate.  Just come and bring an appetite and visit with friends! Adult meals can be purchased for $3.00.

When:   M-F from May 30th through August 11th (excluding July 4th)
Times:  11am to 1pm, meals must be consumed on site
Where:  Wilmington Middle School cafeteria 

We could use your help in spreading the word.  There are still too many kids in our community who are hungry and during the summer months this may be the only hot meal they get that day. So let the neighborhood know, pack up the cars with kids, and get them to the WMS cafeteria for a healthy, hot meal this summer!

Menus will be posted as we get closer to May 30th. Just visit our Food Service page on the District website.
Graduating Seniors

Graduation is just around the corner!  If you have a student that is graduating from WHS on May 26th, be sure to check our senior information page for important information.


On May 20th, at JW Denver Williams Park, Little Hearts Big Smiles will hold their Annual 5K Fun Run.  Little Hearts Big Smiles of Southwestern Ohio is a support group for families of children with special needs and has been instrumental in raising funds to build a playground here in Wilmington for special needs kids.  To learn more about the organization and/or find out how you can help please visit their website . 

If you would like to participate in the Fun Run, you can sign up before May 1st at this form link.

WCS has several students that are mini super heroes that will be cheering the runners on the big day!  We hope you'll stop by on race day to meet them.

See you at the race!
Time for Golf?

Our WCS Girls Golf Team is holding a fund-raising event on June 5-7th at the Elks 797 golf course.  The Junior Golf Clinic is for kids in 1st grade through High School.  High school age players will get on-course experience (scramble and league play).  There will be special WHS alumni speakers, Gabrielle Wedding '01 and David Wagenseller '98, as well as other talented instructors.

Please see their flyer for clinic and registration details.
