Planning Underway for End-of Year Events!
Posted on 03/10/2021
This is the image for the news article titled Planning Underway for End-of Year Events!We are working hard to plan for some key events that help recognize and celebrate students as they finish out the school year. We feel fortunate that with adjustments we can safely provide these experiences again. We continue to work closely with our health department so our plans mirror mitigation procedures we are using in school.  

Prom Redux!
This year our Prom will be for seniors only (they can each bring a guest) and the event will be free. Seniors must pre-register for a table. We will provide dinner and entertainment (dancing is not permitted as recommended by our health department). Building principals will be working with senior class advisors to plan a fun and memorable event and provide specific details in the weeks to come.
 
5th Grade Completion Events
We are aware that these events vary from school to school depending on tradition. This year, they will be limited to students only given the very limited space in elementary gyms and multi-purpose rooms.  However, events will be live-streamed. Student activities (e.g., picnics, etc.) will be outdoors if possible. Building principals will be sending additional information about 5th Grade completion soon. Celebration yard signs are being made for our 5th graders in congratulations of a job well done.

8th Grade Completion Events

This year, our 8th Grade Completion Ceremonies will be held outdoors at the West Allis Athletic Complex.  Four tickets will be issued to each family. Social distancing will be in place and face masks will be required.  Building principals will share more information about 8th Grade completion soon. Celebration yard signs are being made for our 8th graders in congratulations of a job well done.
