District News
Superintendent's Corner
For this week's Superintendent's Corner, I'm not sure where to begin or end, as it has been a whirlwind and continues to be even as I'm writing this. It all started on Sunday with the graduation of the Class of 2018. This is always the highlight of the school year. Other culminating events this week included a Rotary scholarship banquet, the Grade 8 Promotion, and several award ceremonies. Yesterday, I got to watch our baseball team play at Miller Park. Later today, I will be heading to Madison to watch our softball team play in the state tournament.   

We will be saying goodbye to six of our educators who will be retiring from Whitnall. Our Whitnall community thanks each of them for their service to the district and its students. Please look for the upcoming Whitnall Window in which we recognize these educators.  

There were so many wonderful and exciting events that occurred over the 2017-18 school year that it is hard for me to mention them all, but the community support to pass our referendum ranks near the top. We are busy meeting with our architects, making plans to begin construction next school year. Please check our summer communications and website for updates on our projects.

I wish each and every one of you a summer that is both relaxing and action-packed. Please be sure to follow our social media accounts over the summer for updates and news! See you in August!
