An Exceptional Place to Learn!


Thomsen 5

My name is John Thomsen and it is a pleasure to serve as the District Administrator for the School District of Whitefish Bay. 
In this newsletter we have exciting information to share. We start with an invite to hear Cumberland School's upcoming Host School Report.  Next, information on our literacy framework as well as two "Did You Know?" highlights: graduation rates and extra-curricular programming at WFBHS.  Finally, we revisit several high traction Facebook postings from the month of November.  

On behalf of our students and team members thank you for your ongoing support and have a wonderful holiday season!

Dr. John W. Thomsen
District Administrator
