Once a Falcon, always a Falcon. Last Friday, a few former Fox River Middle School staff members stopped to tour the new facility! Thank you to Alice Peterson, Garey Jorstad, Alice Peterson, Tom Johnson, and Steve Schielke for visiting and sharing stories with us. Alice was also able to revisit with Jane and Karyn as Alice was their cooperating teacher!
The theme of our 2022-2023 school is "Dream Big"! We are encouraging students to acknowledge and work towards their biggest aspirations. Each week we will be highlighting a student's dream! Meet Piper; she is a 6th grader at Fox River Middle School! Piper's biggest dream is to play softball professionally!
Thank you to all who came to the WinterFest event last week. The Waterford Recreation Department hosted a great event and it was nice to see so many community members.
Our Fox River Falcons participated in the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Honors Band Weekend from November 18-20. The festival offers selected students from the midwest who were nominated by their band directors to participate in a weekend-long opportunity to rehearse and work with regionally and nationally recognized band conductors and music educators. In addition, they collaborated with UWM performance staff in sectionals and master classes and attended concerts presented by the university ensembles. Congrats to the students who represented Waterford!

The Waterford Graded School Board is seeking a new Superintendent to replace Edward Brzinski who is retiring at the end of this school year. School Board members are looking to gather input from both staff and our community in regards to the hiring of a new superintendent. To allow for input and to provide transparency, we will be conducting a meet and greet with the three finalists. The finalists will be at Trailside Elementary on Tuesday, February 1. Each candidate will rotate between a building tour, community forum hosted by Sloan Allen (Director of Curriculum and Student Growth) and Jane Aegerter (Director of Student and Staff Services), as well as a board interview. The forums will begin at 5:00 PM at Trailside Elementary School in the cafeteria on Tuesday, February 1. There will be an opportunity for you to write down questions for the staff facilitators to ask each candidate. The community and staff in attendance will observe and listen to the candidates answers and then complete a form with your feedback for the school board to consider when selecting the final candidate.
