A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students
February 5, 2021
Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,
Can you believe we are off and running through the second semester already? This year seems to be absolutely flying by. This is an important time to stop, reflect on our progress, and reaffirm actionable goals for the remainder of the year. We are all on a journey of continuous improvement and taking time to gather feedback and intentionally reflect is so important for growth. Please know we greatly appreciate your partnership and help with this process. We need and value your feedback. Earlier this week you received an email inviting you to complete a brief survey to help us continue to grow. If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes and complete this important survey. The survey is also linked here: MNSD Parent Satisfaction Survey.
On another note, throughout this pandemic, across our entire nation there has been a significant increase in the prevalence of anxiety, depression, and substance abuse issues in teens. This alarming trend is happening everywhere and we need to continue to work together to ensure our young adults are making healthy decisions and have access to the appropriate supports for their needs. Often times teenagers don’t want to talk with their parents, but please, continue to make this happen. Talking about things like anxiety, depression, vaping, drugs, alcohol, or relationships may not be easy, but it is so important to do so. The winter months can be a tough stretch for many reasons and now more than ever, we need to continue to talk and stay connected. If you have any questions or concerns please know that we are here to help. Please feel free to reach out to any administrator or Student Services team member for additional support.
As always, thank you for your support and partnership. Together, we can make sure every student finds their path to being the Warrior we know they are capable of becoming.
Have an awesome weekend and GO WARRIORS!

NBHS hosting a Warriors for Troops Service Project
This February the National Business Honor Society at MHS will be doing their Warriors for Troops Initiative in support of the Milwaukee Homeless Veteran's Initiative. During the week of February 8-12th, they will be collecting things such as cash, non-perishable foods, bathing items, new and gently used clothing, and kitchen utensils during 3rd-hour classes. Please consider bringing in some of these items to donate to the cause. 200 to 300 veterans in Milwaukee are homeless on any given day, but you can help by donating some items to the charity.

Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests
Our schools continue to be open and our curricular co-curricular activities are operational under our local health department guidelines. However, it is important to draw our families' attention to an overriding principle. Although we love to see our whole community at each of our district's events; during this unprecedented time, we are asking our families to operate under a singular school community and singular family mindset when attending events. Essentially, keeping each school's events to just that school's clientele and only the families with active participants or performers in the event.
Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests
Beginning January 7, 2021, the Classic 8 has issued a revision to the Winter Sport Spectator Guidelines.
Home spectators remain at 4 immediate family members per participating athlete. NEW: Visiting spectators are limited to 2 immediate family members per visiting participating athlete.
Still in effect:
Admission to all Classic 8 contests are not open to the general public, students, and staff.
An appropriate mask/face covering, as directed by Gov. Evers, must be worn at all times.
For away contests, please consult our Activities website, 1Warrior.org, or the opponent's home website for streaming links.
We recognize that many of our students' support systems are their family members and it means a great deal to our students to have their closest advocates in attendance supporting their athletic, musical, and leadership endeavors. We are excited to see our students in their winter season performances, competitions, and school community-building events!
