4 Weeks Left!

Hard to believe we have passed the midway point of the 4th quarter. It is so rewarding to see the growth in our students athletically, musically, behaviorally, socially, and academically. Our end of the year concerts, track meets, and school projects routinely display the amazing work of our staff and students.

Let's have a strong finish to the year!

Student Ambassador Group

Another new student group has emerged, the Student Ambassador Group. Their mission is to create an environment where our students feel connected to their school. This will foster a positive school culture where student voice is heard. Current 7th graders were nominated and have already begun to meet as they plan for visits from current 5th graders to enhance our transition program to Webster. Once the year starts they will lead a variety of activities to create a deeper connection between the grade levels by pairing 8th grade homerooms with 7th grade and 6th grade homerooms for a variety of activities. For more information please contact Mrs. Champion or Mrs. Rouse.

Long Range Master Plan

At the School Board meeting on April 23, 2018 the Board reviewed solutions related to identified needs as part of the Long Range Master Plan. After 30+ focus groups, engaging with 450+ individuals the Board has developed solutions to address school capacity/growth, learning spaces and safety and security.


As part of an information gathering process of the Long Range Master Plan (LRMP), the School Board approved a community survey. Cedarburg School District recently released a community-wide survey which has been mailed to all residents of the school district. The School Board is seeking input from the community on proposed solutions to address the identified needs at each of the five schools. This is a reminder to complete the survey by June 1. To obtain additional surveys for other adults in your household, please call the district office at 376-6100.

Superintendent Bugnacki will be available to provide the community with an overview and answer any questions. If you have questions or are interested in learning more, please plan to attend one of the three community update sessions coming in the next few weeks.

May 24th– 6:00 PM – Cedarburg High School IMC

May 29th– 10:00 AM – Cedarburg Public Library

May 29th– 6:00 PM – Cedarburg High School IMC


Additional information regarding the LRMP can be found on the district’s website.

Student Survey Results

This year our students participated in a school survey. The two main topics that students highlighted were PIE Time classes and school culture. This year after meeting with student and parent focus groups along with our staff's input we are making some improvements for the 2018-2019 school year. Our PIE time will be changing to include a weekly homeroom, study time, and grade level team building time to enhance our relationships across the building. We have also created two new student leadership groups (previous mentioned) that will help guide our student body and take more ownership over Webster's culture. We are excited to bring these enhancements to our students next year.
