Whitnall High School
Show Your Falcon Pride On Your Lawn!
Did you know that research has shown that students with higher levels of school spirit perform better academically, and are happier in general? In order to promote that positive mind set (& have some Blue & Gold fun!) our Student Council is planning great Spirit Week events for our high schoolers the week of October 12 – 16. With that in mind our SkillsUSA students and Cheer Squad have teamed up to bring that school spirit to your home or business!

By clicking here https://www.whitnallfalconboosterclub.org/product-page/falcon-stencil-fundraiser you can order your own Whitnall Falcon to be painted on your front lawn for spirit week. No front lawn? No problem- click here https://www.whitnallfalconboosterclub.org/product-page/falcon-pallet-fundraiser – the students will deliver a pre-painted pallet to your home or business to be displayed to show your Falcon Spirit! While the fundraiser is being run by the WFBC (therefore your purchase is a tax deductible donation) every dollar earned is funneled right back to the students who are doing the work.
The SkillsUSA Team is creating the stencils and pallets while our Whitnall Cheer Squad will be doing the painting on your lawn. Samples of both products will be posted on the WFBC Facebook page next week as well as viewable in person at our four schools by October 3. Be able to say you were in on the first year of what we hope will become a Homecoming tradition in the future.

“School spirit is a powerful reflection of pride, achievement and determination. It goes hand in hand with positivity and is a benchmark of a school’s holistic success.” ~Jeff Webb
