Dear Shabazz Community,
I hope this letter finds you all doing well and enjoying some of our first evidence of summer. I wanted to make sure I communicate some important dates as we move to the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
With the shift to virtual learning, it has adjusted our end of school timeline a bit. Shabazz students will be completing the last of their coursework by May 29. If they are missing assignments/tasks for their class they will have an opportunity to work with their teacher and support staff until June 3 as that is the last day of school for all high school students within MMSD. Staff will, however, continue to have professional development until June 11 which will be focusing on our continued visioning work for the 2020-2021 school year.
We do have exciting news to share. WISC-TV (channel 3) is airing the Shabazz Class of 2020 graduation on June 13 at 6:30 pm. Our graduation committee has worked very hard over the past few weeks to try and replicate, as much as we could, our authentic and unique ceremony that only Shabazz delivers. I'd encourage you to view the experience of this event that hopefully brings our school community to life for all viewers.
The Shabazz community loves our graduates and wish them the very best as they embark on their new chapters of life--they are the
"Class of 2020: Born to Make History."
