West Fargo High School News

  • Welcome to a new year at West Fargo High! We have made a change to our school newsletter format for this school year. Instead of a school newsletter, all newsletter information will be available on a customized webpage connected directly to the WFHS site. To navigate to this page from our WFHS site, select ABOUT US, and SCHOOL NEWS. There you will find notes from administrators, updates, reminders, photos, events, and forms. This site will always be live and available for viewing right from the web. Communication will be updated in a more timely manner and will easily link to other pertinent areas of the website. We hope that you find this new platform much more user-friendly and engaging for you.


    If you do not have internet service to access communications and updates from WFHS or West Fargo Public Schools, we encourage you to visit the West Fargo Public Library for free internet access. If you would like a printed copy of the newsletter, please call WFHS to make arrangements.

  • Congratulations to the Key Club!

    The West Fargo High School Key Club won 3rd place at the International Convention, in Chicago, this summer.   WFHS Key Club entered their "Feed it Forward" program in the Single Service category.  Feed it Forward takes the Friday salads and sandwiches to the New Life Center for the Homeless, instead of having it being thrown away.  This helps the environment as well as the homeless.
