Warrior News

A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students

October 9, 2020

Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,

It was another great week to be a Warrior! Huge thank you to everyone for your support of the adjusted approach to our parent/teacher conferences this past week. We believe these events are so critical to the strong partnership we have and we appreciate your strong engagement. We have received some very positive feedback on the structure of the event and we ask that if you have not done so yet, please complete the brief Google Form that was shared via Infinite Campus on Thursday. Your feedback is essential to our process of continuous improvement for events like this one. Whether you attended or not, we value your voice on how we can better serve our students and families.


The unique times we are navigating through have brought many challenges and opportunities, yet I continue to be inspired by the response of our students, families, and staff. Our Warrior Nation continues to step up, rise up, and lift one another up no matter what we face. Thank you for making Muskego an outstanding community to be a part of. Together we are capable of facing and overcoming any challenge we might face.


Have an awesome week and GO WARRIORS!

MHS WarriorBots

The Mechanical Team has been testing prototypes of an intake. They are trying a new design to see if it will work better to pick up balls. They changed the wheels on the drivetrain to turn with more ease and also started to make fixes on the climber to improve the climbing success rate.


The Electrical Team worked on the organization of the electrical cabinets and training new members. At the beginning of the month, they worked on wiring the 2019 robot to practice for when they start wiring the 2020 robot. They have now started getting things ready and organized to rewire the 2020 robot.


The Programming Team further improved their programming knowledge, learning the basics of programming a drive subsystem. Some minor improvements were made to the robot, and they solved a few key issues.


The Business Team organized an info night for the new incoming freshmen. They made a team info video and a MHS hype video, both of which can be found on the team’s YouTube channel at WarriorBots6421. They have also been expanding the team’s sponsor list and are working to get new sponsors.

At this time, ACT is planning for section retesting to be available later in 2021 but will continue to monitor the impacts of COVID-19 on test center capacity to prioritize safe and equitable access to testing.

ASVAB

Muskego High School will be offering the ASVAB to any interested junior or senior. The test will be administered the morning of Thursday, October 15th at Muskego High School. The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple-choice test, administered by the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, used to determine qualification for enlistment in the United States Armed Forces. Although the test is administered by the military, it is not (and never has been) a requirement that a test-taker with a qualifying score enlist in the armed forces. The ASVAB measures eight content areas: General Science, Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Mathematics Knowledge, Electronics Information, Auto and Shop Information, and Mechanical Comprehension. Any interested junior or senior should contact their School Counselor.

NCAA Eligibility Webinar

The NCAA Eligibility Center is hosting a webinar for your college-bound student-athletes and their families on Saturday, October 10 at 11 a.m. Eastern. Please use this link to register for the event. The webinar will cover topics like Division I & II requirements and navigating eligibility during COVID-19.

Limited space is available!

Getting into the Trades: Youth Career Cluster Chats

WRTP│BIG STEP is offering virtual sessions called Getting into the Trades: Youth Career Cluster Chats. These sessions will highlight the various construction skilled trades pathways and what is required for an apprenticeship in these crafts.

Each session will feature an overview of the identified trades with a chance to hear from representatives working in the industry. We encourage students to sign up for as many or as few sessions that interest them. They can register to receive a recording if the time doesn’t work with their school schedule to attend “live.” The Zoom registration link can be found through the below links or by going to wrtp.org/events.
