Warrior News

A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students

October 2, 2020

Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,

What an amazing Homecoming week here at Muskego High School! The school spirit of our students, families, and local businesses truly exemplifies our awesome community. Please know how important your support is to our school community. It is impossible to have a great school without great families supporting it. We continue to navigate through unique times and circumstances but the strong partnership we have with you is a key element to getting through whatever we may face in the best way we can.


Please do me a huge favor this weekend. Take a moment to tell your student how incredibly proud we are of them. They continue to take on countless changes and stressors that are huge in the hearts and minds of teenagers. Let them know that we see them taking it all on with RESPECT, HUMILITY, and INTEGRITY. Remind them that their efforts and RESPONSIBLE actions are a shining example of the PRIDE they take in being a WARRIOR. We have awesome students and we are grateful for the countless ways they make Muskego High School an outstanding place.


Have an awesome week and GO WARRIORS!

Todd Irvine

Principal
