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 wide and varied news to share. We start with an invite to hear Richards School's upcoming Host School Report and to the 2nd District Safety Update Meeting.  We are also pleased to share the news of a lower tax levy than anticipated, resulting in a 3.57% decrease from last year.  Finally, we will be highlighting our High School's upcoming drama production and sharing several "high traction" Facebook postings from the month of October.  

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

Dr. John W. Thomsen
