Last week we were able to walk through American Family Field. We will be sharing more specifics very soon detailing the logistics of our graduation. As a reminder, the FHS Commencement is scheduled at American Family Field on Sunday, June 20th at 5pm.

Attention Families of the Class of 2021

Class of 2021 Families, Order your Class of 2021 senior yard signs here! Although the Classmunity website labels this as a fundraiser, we are simply using this platform for easy and efficient online ordering- the items are sold at cost and will be delivered to the high school for pick up.

FHS Prom Update

The Prom Committee is moving forward. Save the date for juniors and seniors for the evening of Friday, June 11th. More information will be coming soon!

Senior Night Recognition

Wednesday, June 2nd has been identified as the night FHS will recognize our Senior honor students. Traditionally we recognize students with a 3.5+ (unweighted) GPA, select scholarships and students of the year for each high school department. More information on how the evening will work to be shared in the coming weeks.

Students who received a Senior Night Biography Form should submit that this week.

AP Exams Are Almost Here

This year's Advanced Placement (AP) Exams take place the weeks of May 3 and May 10, along with Monday, May 17. All AP test-takers (both virtual and in-person learners) will take socially distanced, paper-and-pencil exams in the FHS Library at standardized times designated by the College Board.

More specific details about this year's AP exam administration will be emailed to AP students and families in the next week, but we want to make sure that everyone is aware that most afternoon AP exams will likely run past the regular end of the school day, sometimes by up to an hour or more.

Students will need to make arrangements for transportation home and keep this in mind regarding work schedules, activities or sports practices/games, etc. The full list of all AP exam dates and times can be found here (note that we are following Exam Administration 1). AP students will need to bring regular non-mechanical number 2 pencils and also pens with dark blue or black ink with them to their AP exams. Please stay tuned to your email this week for more details.

Children Ages 16 Years and Up Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine

Anyone 16 years of age and older is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the state of Wisconsin. At this time, students who are fully immunized, meaning that they are 14 days past receiving their last dose of a 2 shot series or their only dose of a single shot series, do not need to quarantine. There is currently no defined duration regarding how long a fully immunized individual will have the ability to waive the need to quarantine when exposed to someone who may be contagious with COVID-19. As a result, students engaging in the vaccine efforts may result in less time out of school, athletics, activities, work, celebrations, etc.

Children ages 16 and 17 are currently only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, which can be challenging to locate. The Wisconsin Center (400 W Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee) has Pfizer vaccine available from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. Those ages 16-17 will need consent forms signed by a parent or guardian prior to vaccination. Registration may be done online here, or walk-ins are also being accepted at this location. The graphic below also provides these details.

If you have questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine and would like to learn more, the Waukesha Health Department created a fact sheet that addresses some of the most commonly requested topics.

Enjoy this week's The Saber Roar.

* Stories include:

* Cultural Food Tasting

* Cultural Dancing

* What does culture mean to you? AP Human Geography Students
