An Exceptional Place to Learn!


Thomsen 5

My name is John Thomsen and it is a pleasure to serve in my 4th year as the District Administrator for the School District of Whitefish Bay. 
Our monthly E-Newsletter is intended to share important information about the District as well as highlight great news.  In this E-News we will be updating you on school safety, two important upcoming district events, highlighting our 25 year recognition recipients, as well as sharing several "high traction" Facebook postings from the summer.  

We are excited about the 2018-19 school year and we thank you for your ongoing support.  See the  District Administrator Welcome Letter
