Picking-up Your Student from School Early
If your student has to leave school early or during the day for an appointment, we ask that you please send a note for the office in the morning. The volume of calls in the afternoon for wanting students dismissed early is many times overwhelming.
Our procedure is as follows:
- Sent a note in the morning for your student to get a pass in advance to leave school.
- Come into the building to pick up your student. Do not call the office or leave a voicemail wanting your student released.
- If your student returns from the building from an appointment, please make sure they have a note from the place where the appt was held (Doctor, Dentist, etc.) to excuse their absence.

The Addams Family, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it's every father's nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's "normal" boyfriend and his parents.

Blog Post: Scholarship Opportunities
By: Tara Tinder, Executive Director, Stateline Community Foundation
Are you looking for funds to help pay for college or a trade/technical school this fall? Read on!
Overview of Opportunities
Last year, Stateline Community Foundation (SCF) awarded $151,750 to twenty-nine Beloit Memorial High School seniors continuing their education. The average scholarship award was $2,200. The largest was a full four-year scholarship.
You may have heard about the Collins-Clark Scholarship. The four-year award mentioned, but you may not be aware of the variety of other SCF scholarships.
SCF offers several scholarships for students pursuing a trade or attending a technical school. At times, there are few applicants for these opportunities yet there is a nationwide shortage of tradespeople; and in two years you can be working with little if any debt, good pay, and benefits.
Have you worked on the Increscent? Are you pursuing a career in Art, Art Design, Graphic Arts, or Art Education? Were you involved in the performing arts, or do you seek a career in music? We’ve got awards for that. Did you participate in a Community Action Program? Are you enrolling in a culinary school or studying hotel/restaurant management? We have you covered. Are you attending UW Whitewater Rock County? Do you want to be an educator? We’ve got your back. Whatever study you’re pursuing, odds are SCF offers a scholarship for it!

- FAFSA/SAR—Once you’ve completed your FAFSA, you’ll receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). If you file your FAFSA electronically, you will be notified by email. If you file with a paper form, you will need to scan and save the report as a PDF file.
