Principal Message

Dear Lane Families,

It was wonderful to see and talk to our families this past week at parent teacher conferences. Thank you for attending and connecting with staff. As the year continues, feel free to contact staff with questions and/or concerns about your student. We value the family to school connection.

During the month of March students and staff will work with the Peace Center. Students and staff will utilize a peace circle for discussion throughout the day. The circle builds a sense of belonging. Currently, community circles are used during base group typically on Mondays and Fridays. The circle builds a sense of belonging, trust, and respect among students emphasizes inclusiveness and tolerance.

Parent Connection

Student Bright Spot - Hayli Donald

Hayli decided to try and win the Miss West Allis and Miss New Berlin Scholarship competition to try and earn some scholarship money for college. In preparing for this competition she had to create a resume, pick and platform and write an essay. Hayli choose her platform; Not all Abuse Leave Bruises. She then wrote an essay to express her reason for choosing this platform. How she will create awareness. Her media and marketing plans and how she will fund her ideas or plans. She has her essay and resume if you would like to see them.

Hayli then competed against three other outstanding teens in a private interview with five judges that lasted eight minutes. In this interview the judges asked her a series of questions regarding her essay, resume and current events. She then performed a talent, that she choreographed on her own. She did a lyrical dance routine to “Wind Beneath my Wings”, by Bette Midler. She then performed a fitness routine. Her final competition was an evening gown and walk accompanied by an on-stage question in which she did not know prior to stepping on stage.

She was judged on all of these and won. She will now follow through on her platform and her plans. She will also get to promote her platform around West Allis when she is invited to events. She will be able to compete in the state competition, for Miss Outstanding Teen Wisconsin. This competition will be similar preparations to this pageant however she has potential to win scholarship money and if she wins, she will then compete in Miss Outstanding Teen America.

We are very proud of her. We know she will do some amazing things with this title and will be a great role model for her peers.
