Above the Influence

Above the Influence is a group that has formed at some schools throughout the Sheboygan Area School District to help students build a strong community of learners. Above the Influence (ATI) groups work to make school a safe and healthy place where kids can avoid negative influences and help others in their community in the process.

Above the Influence at Wilson meets on Fridays from 3:30-4:30 weekly (unless notified by teacher) in Room 208. The faculty advisor is Mrs. Dawn Street.

If you enjoy 4>2 projects, helping others, keeping good friends, learning about drugs and alcohol facts and helping your school with fun friends - JOIN US:)

Students take the job of being a safety patrol member very seriously and demonstrate good judgment. Part of our safety patrol pledge is to: report for duty on time, strive to prevent traffic and other kinds of accidents, report dangerous practices of students and drivers, and to earn the respect of fellow students.
