Students Create Hoodies To Increase Awareness Of Suicide In Athletics
Two Kettle Moraine High School seniors - Ava Sander and Hailey Hack - have created hoodies to bring attention to the increase in athletic suicides and mental health issues.

All proceeds are planned to be donated directly to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Health, at the end of the school year. The students' goal is to sell 40 hoodies, which would raise $1,000.

Follow their instagram @athleticsuicidehoodies for updates.

Join us May 17 in the Kettle Moraine High School Campus' library media center for the next KM school board meeting. The agenda will be posted on BoardDocs in the coming days.

Student Becomes Honorary Member of Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

KM Perform junior Noor S. had the experience of a lifetime last week when she was invited to perform as an honorary member of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (MSO)! Noor earned this recognition through participation in MSO's Audrey G. Baird Stars of Tomorrow Concerto Competition. Noor's semi-finalist finish earned her the honor of sitting side-by-side with MSO musicians in a performance of Beethoven's Pastorale Symphony.

Noor was also recently recognized with an Exemplary Soloist Award at WSMA's State Solo & Ensemble competition, an honor reserved for just 153 of Wisconsin's over 3,000 registered solo events. Congratulations to Noor on these incredible accomplishments!
