Wheeler Student Mission:
    I am here today and every day to try to be the best version of myself. I will question, PAWS, be mindful, and collaborate in harmony so that I can be safe, respectful, responsible, and an awesome problem-solver. We will do this together and have each others's backs. We are Wheeler Wildcats, ROAR!!
