Vol 1.12: April is Spring Time
Perfect Attendance for March
Academic Learning Updates
Wisconsin Forward Exam
The Forward Exam is a component for how Grewenow is measure on the School Report Card, and the feedback families receive about their student's performance on the test will only be a snapshot of what they knew and were able to do academically in the assessed areas the day they took the assessment.
Though the Forward Exam is an important assessment for reasons listed above, it does NOT in any way define our students as the wonderful, thoughtful, caring, and kind young people they are.

Grewenow Families!!! Grewenow will be having a CLOTHING DRIVE for the Foster Kids Foundation during the week of April 9-13. Many times children are placed in foster care with only the clothing they are wearing. Please consider donating clothing for this great cause! We have a collection bin in the front office. Your support for this great cause is appreciated. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Mrs. Wideman, our school Social Worker, at 262-359-5974, or the school office, at 262-359-6362.
If your student had perfect attendance in March, their name will be entered in a drawing for a chance to throw a pie at Mr. Sellenheim, on Friday, April 13!
School attendance is a crucial part of student success, and in addition to exciting learning opportunities students receive each day, there is no reason to add to the fun with a little pie!
