A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students
March 5, 2021
Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,
Yet again, I find myself filled with immense pride and inspiration in what the students of Muskego High School continue to accomplish. It was another action packed and exciting week with more awesome recognitions and awards bestowed upon our Warriors. Our forensics team continued their exemplary performances as the entire 24 member team advanced to the WHSFA District tournament. Additionally, the heart of our school spirit, our Cheer team, placed 3rd in the State competition. Also, in case you missed the live broadcast, take a moment to watch this news feature on one of our outstanding scholar athletes, Sara Jochims. Just in case you need some inspiration, take a minute to watch this feature on the amazing journey of Therese Missiaen and all that she has overcome. Our students are truly amazing and I am grateful to be able to witness so many awesome examples of what it means to be a WARRIORS! Let’s keep the sunshine, warmer weather, and awesome Warrior accomplishments going throughout March!
Huge shout out to all of the parents and guardians who were able to connect during our virtual parent teacher conferences this week. Please take a few moments of your time to complete this brief survey (also shared via Infinite Campus Messenger earlier today) regarding the event. Your feedback is essential to our continuous improvement process. Thank you for your continued support and engagement in this awesome journey through high school.
Please remember, if you have any questions or need support in any way, reach out any time to our administrative and student services teams. We are here to help.
Have an awesome weekend and GO WARRIORS!

Students can meet with a Career Coach from WCTC
Students have the opportunity to speak to a Career Coach from WCTC virtually every other Thursday. The Coach can speak to students about all options/paths available after high school, not just about technical college options. If you would like your high school student to speak with a Career Coach to help create a plan for their future education or career let your School Counselor know or your student can come to Student Services to sign-up for a meeting.
Congratulations to MHS senior Anoushka Prasad!
