Cornerstone Ceremony

On January 15, 2019 Hadfield will be celebrating it's 131st year serving students of Waukesha. Last year as part of our 130th year celebration we opened the cornerstone that was put in place when the new Hadfield School was built in 1950. We will be returning the original items to the cornerstone and adding new items from our 130th year. The Cornerstone Ceremony is Tuesday January 15, 2019 at 9:00am.

We are asking all students to wear their 130th t-shirt from last year or any red, black or white t-shirt that they have to the Cornerstone Ceremony.
