ISO Donated Clothing Items

We all know that at times our students may have an "accident" at school. To be prepared in these situations, we keep additional clothing items in our nurse's office. I wanted to pass along that our school office is always looking for donations of the following items.

  • New elementary-aged undergarments (boys and girls)
  • New and gently used elementary-aged clothing (boys and girls)
  • New and gently used outerwear such as coats, snow pants, hats, gloves, mittens shoes, and boots (both boys and girls).

Speak Up, Speak Out Wisconsin

The School District of South Milwaukee partners with SPEAK UP, SPEAK OUT (SUSO) hosted by The Wisconsin Department of Justice. SUSO is a comprehensive, one-stop place to turn to with your concerns regarding school safety. A facet of the Resource Center that we are particularly pleased to share with Wisconsin students and parents is the threat reporting system. The SUSO threat reporting system is available 24/7 and is free to all. Students can submit a school safety concern by accessing the app on their Chromebook or by visiting speakup.widoj.gov. Resource Center staff work around-the-clock to respond to reports and to deploy a response locally by communicating directly with school administrators, law enforcement and counselors.

Traffic Reminder: Curbside Lane For Buses Only

Please do not park in the curbside lane of the parking lot on Rawson Avenue. This lane is designed for buses and daycare transportation. These services need quick access to the front of the building. They maintain a tight schedule with multiple destinations in a short window of time.

There are two drop-off and pick-up zones at Rawson Elementary School. Each have posted signs.

-On 15th Avenue (West entrance)

-On Rawson Avenue (East Playground-side entrance)


Wolf of the Week is an internal school award which celebrates the demonstration of positive character traits by our Rawson students. Our awesome Rawson staff will be selecting a variety of students per week who have continually demonstrated our PAWSitive expectations of responsibility, respect, and safety.

*Please keep in mind, these winners are not an exhaustive list. We have many children who consistently demonstrate strong character throughout their school day!

Congratulations to last month's Wolves! 🎉
