“Celebrating 100 Years of Pride, Tradition, & Excellence
On Tuesday, September 15th 2014, the WHS Athletic Department, Boys Soccer Team (both coaches and players) along with the administration, held an official unveiling of the new WHS scoreboard, which was donated by Papa Luigi’s Restaurant and the sprinkler system, which was donated by Woodruff Energy.

Parking: We realize that during many of our events it is difficult to find parking, but it is important to note for all parents/visitors that parking in the fire lane is strictly prohibited. We have been informed by the Reliance Fire Company and Woodstown Police Department that this needs to stop or tickets will be issued. Please be reminded that if you are here for an event or at any time during the school day that you must be parked in an approved designated area or you may run the risk of having your car towed/ticketed or both. We thank you for your cooperation in dealing with this difficult issue.
