During the week of February 10-14, WSGD schools participated in the "Our Community Cares" initiative. Student leadership groups at all four schools partnered with WUHS, the Chamber of Commerce, and other community agencies to collect clothing and other essentials. These items will be used to help local families through family resource rooms at each WGSD school and through donations to Love Inc.

Student Council members gave up part of their Saturday to work concessions at a home Forensic meet to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. Student Council members were inspired to donate to this cause when they attended a leadership conference back in November. The Student Council also sold candy/chip grams for Valentine’s Day to raise money for this cause as well. Through both the concessions and Valentine’s Day grams, the Fox River Student Council was able to donate $400 to the Make a Wish Foundation! Way to be generous and make an impact, Fox River Student Council!

Fox River Middle School - Make A Wish donation
The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards are a yearly competition open to any student in 7-12 grade. Student work is first selected by their art teacher and then the entry sent to the Milwaukee Art Museum to be judged by a group of local and national artists. Please note that not all artwork is given an award and very few middle schools enter the competition as they are competing in the same division as high schoolers. This year Fox River earned 9 awards. We had 4 Silver Key Awards and 5 Honorable Mentions. Silver Key Award Winners will have their art displayed at the Milwaukee Art Museum for “The Scholastic Art Awards - Wisconsin Exhibition” from February 31 through March 15, 2020 in the Schroeder Galleria. Honorable Mention winners names will be displayed at the museum within the gallery. This past week we had 10 students selected to represent Fox River for the Southeast Youth Art Month Show. This show is held on February 14th at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Art. This show is only open to art educators that are current members of the Wisconsin Art Education Association. Some of our students have been selected by WAEA to move on to the Wisconsin Youth Art Month Show in Madison at the Capitol Rotunda. The ceremony is on March 6th from 12-1pm. Congratuations to the students and our art teachers, Mrs. Bergman and Ms. Coyne, who support and encourage these students!

Earlier this week our 7th grade students had an opportunity to participate in a Courage Retreat. This was a day to inspire students to follow their hearts instead of the crowd, use courage and make responsible decisions despite their fears. The kids really got involved and it was a great experience for all of us!
