No School Tuesday and a Half-day on Friday

This week has some different student schedules. Please take note, because we feel bad when families show up in the morning on a non-school day or when students do not get picked up on time for dismissal on a half day. If multiple family members are involved in drop off or pick up, please make sure everyone in the family is aware of this week's schedule. Of course, don't forget to set your clocks back one hour on Sunday, November 4th.

Digital Citizenship Month

In October, we observed Digital Citizenship Week in the School District of South Milwaukee. At school, we continue to teach students about online safety, privacy, and appropriate use of resources all year. It is important that families continue to monitor screen time and use of social media by children. Please read this letter to close out Digital Citizenship month.

Early Childhood Screenings

Every year, the school district of South Milwaukee hosts opportunities for children between the ages of 3-5 who are not enrolled to be assessed for developmental issues. The screenings help to identify possible delays that may warrant further evaluation. If interested, you need to schedule an appointment ahead of time. Please see this flyer for more information and the phone number for appointments.

Trivia Night at Whitnall High School

Each year, the Partners for the Advancement of Gifted Education (PAGE) association hosts several events for Gifted & Talented students. This trivia night has been well attended in the past, but you need to RSVP. Download the flyer below.

Nutcracker Ballet - a sensory friendly performance

If you have a child that would benefit from a sensory friendly performance of a classic show, the Milwaukee Ballet's Nutcracker is offering a performance on December 19th at 6 p.m. This would be especially appropriate for students with autism or sensory-processing needs. This magical story is made accessible - see this link for details and tickets.
