A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students
March 25, 2021
Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,
Each month I get to meet with student representatives from each of our clubs in a committee called the Principal's Cabinet. Our purpose is to talk about what is working well at MHS and also what we can do to make our school an even better place. Each club representative shares what they are working on, learning about, and how it is impacting their growth and other people’s lives. To say it is inspiring is an understatement. Seriously. The range of activities and service projects that our students are a part of is simply incredible. Furthermore, hearing our young adults speak with such genuine care about helping others is truly heartwarming. We have AWESOME students! Please know that we are well aware that you don’t get wonderful young adults by mistake. It happens when you have great families. It happens when you have a great K-12 school system filled with dedicated and caring teachers, coaches, and advisors. It happens when there is strong community support. It happens when there are great youth programs and parent volunteers who truly invest in helping all kids grow. The success we see in our Warriors is the result of a lot of people working together to make a difference. Thank you for being such a strong partner in this journey!
As you head into spring break, I hope that you will take some time to reflect on all that there is to be proud of here at Muskego High School and the important role you take in helping it happen.
Have an awesome Spring Break!

Have you asked your student what they know about vaping? If not, why not? Data from around the nation continues to demonstrate that teenagers are utilizing electronic vaping devices at an alarming rate. Please take a look at this news release from the Minnesota Department of Health for some information on the addictive nature of electronic vaping devices. Vaping is an issue everywhere. The billion dollar tobacco industry continues to create and market flavored products and devices that are appealing to teenagers. Have the conversation with your child and help ensure they understand the risks associated with highly addictive products like nicotine. Please reach out to your student's school counselor or administrator if you have any questions or concerns about vaping.
