Pennies for Patients

Grewenow families...our school has accepted the challenge of helping to find a cure for blood cancer! We are joining over 27,000 schools across the nation to make a difference and raise as much money as we can to help Wisconsin blood cancer patients! From November 30th - December 14th our school will be working to reach a goal of $750. Encouraging your children to participate in this effort will grow empathy and help them understand the importance of helping others. Your students will be bringing home a Parent Letter telling you more about how you can support our Pennies for Patients program, but for now please encourage your children to set aside their coins. Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, Quarters and even Dollars will be accepted! Watch for more details to come!

Attention 5th Grade Students !

If you are interested in finding out more about Harborside Academy for middle school, they are inviting you to spend a day shadowing at their school. Please have your parent or guardian call Ms. Guerrero in the Harborside main office at (262) 359-8400 to set up a date.


Attending school on time and on a consistent basis is a crucial part of your child's academic success. As such, we would like to go over our KUSD attendance policy to ensure that everyone is informed and that we are all doing our best in having our students here, everyday and on time.

A child cannot be excused more than ten (10) days in a full school year. As per Wisconsin State Statutes, all absences beyond ten (10) days would be marked unexcused and treated accordingly. Any days missed after the 10 days, no matter at what point during the school year, will need a medical excuse for each day they missed after that 10th day. If a medical note is not received, the days are marked unexcused or truant.

HELP WANTED: Volunteers Needed!

We need you...yes you!
Parents/Caregivers are a vital part of our school community and there are many opportunities at Grewenow for you to get involved in. From helping out in our classrooms to planning a school event. We value those in our student's lives and want you to feel welcomed to participate in all that goes on at Grewenow.
