Newsletter -- February/March 2018
An Exceptional Place to Learn!


Greetings - In this newsletter we will be updating you on an upcoming District event focused on Nurturing a Culture of Safety, as well as sharing our approach in developing the thriving disposition of Accessing and Analyzing Information within our students.  We also will be highlighting another fabulous theater production - Legally Blond The Musical, and featuring several "high traction" Facebook postings from last month.  

On behalf of our students and team members thank you for your ongoing support.

Continuing to Nurture a Culture of Safety  
The recent tragic events in Broward County, FL, continue to be on the minds of our entire school community.  Safety is a collective responsibility among all school community stakeholders. Providing a safe and secure learning environment for all students and staff is our top priority. 

We are interested in providing our families an opportunity to better understand our current safety and security practices and share new ideas.  We invite you to join us on March 21, 2018 from 5:30 to 6:30 for a District  Presentation and Tabletop Discussions: Furthering a Culture of Safety in the School District of Whitefish Bay.

It is our hope that through engagement we will strengthen our shared understanding of current safety practices and stakeholder expectations in order to keep our children safe.

Date: March 21, 2018
Time: 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Location:  Richards Elementary School - The Great Hall

                   5812 N. Santa Monica Blvd.

Thriving Disposition - Accessing and Analyzing Information  
Information and data continues to pummel us at alarming rates.  Accessing and evaluating information requires efficient and effective evaluation of that data.  Being able to critically and competently discern and manage vast amounts of information is a skill required for most if not all current and future workers.  See how the District is addressing this thriving disposition.
