A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students
March 12, 2021
Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,
It was so awesome to have the sunshine and warm weather fill the air again. I’m not sure about you, but it sure had me excited and looking forward to March 26th! I mean seriously, who isn’t excited for March 26th? It’s the big day! Wait, you were thinking it’s the start of spring break... wrong. It’s our first ever virtual career fair! Seriously, this event is going to be great! Thanks to some incredible efforts from a team of people and countless outstanding business partners from around the state, we are excited to get this new annual event off the ground and running. Trust me, I understand that many of us are also excited about spring break but please make sure to capitalize on this event. Additional information and details will be shared out soon but in the meantime, mark your calendars and carve out time to talk with your students about how they learned about their future careers from this great opportunity.
As always, thank you for your continued support and encouragement regarding all of the awesome happenings of our Muskego Warriors! Your enthusiasm and partnership are foundational to the success of what we do.
Have an awesome weekend and GO WARRIORS!

The use of electronic vaping devices by teens across America continues skyrocket. These products are more accessible than ever (in our own community a local business is providing free samples) and incredibly easy to hide (see this article for some examples). Additionally, the types of chemicals/drugs they utilize also continues to expand at an alarming rate. We need to talk with our teenagers about the dangers associated with this behavior. Research continues to demonstrate that nicotine is a highly addictive substance and further supports that teens who utilize a vaping device are statistically more likely to experiment with other drugs. The use of these products can have life changing impacts on our teenagers. Please continue to talk with your student about this. If you need support or would like to talk about this issue further please reach out to any member of our Student Service or Administrative teams.

Virtual Career Fair
On our district, Blue Day, Friday, March 26th, students will have the chance to learn about different careers as well as discovering opportunities to take advantage of while in high school by attending our Virtual Career Fair. Students will hear from some of our high school counselors, business partners, current students, and college representatives. Jeff Peterson, co-owner of Geneva Supply and Interstate Music and founder of Biztank, a non-profit organization, will be our keynote speaker. Students will take part in a reflection activity during the April ACP lesson on April 6th after attending the virtual career fair.
Students can meet with a Career Coach from WCTC
Students have the opportunity to speak to a Career Coach from WCTC virtually every other Thursday. The Coach can speak to students about all options/paths available after high school, not just about technical college options. If you would like your high school student to speak with a Career Coach to help create a plan for their future education or career let your School Counselor know or your student can come to Student Services to sign-up for a meeting.
