MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee Public Schools graduates from every class and every school will come together later this month as the district hosts its first-ever All Alumni Reunion.
Alumni will have the opportunity to reconnect with classmates and friends and show their school spirit! Grads are encouraged to wear their school gear and the schools with the most alumni present will be recognized.
The free event is set for Tuesday, February 23, 2016 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, 1001 N. 4th Street, Milwaukee 53203. Enter at the Kohl’s entrance, which is located closest to 6th Street and Highland Avenue. Attendees should RSVP at mpsmke.com/alumni.
“Our alumni network brings tremendous value to our graduates and to our current students,” MPS Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver said. “This event is 170 years in the making and I look forward to meeting alumni and learning about the positive impacts they are having in our community.”
MPS is hosting the reunion to celebrate alumni as part of the MPS Forever Family. This celebration aligns with MPS’ eight strategic objectives that include rethinking high schools. As part of that effort, the district is promoting alumni networks across MPS to promote and foster pride, loyalty and lifelong commitment to our schools as well as continued relationships among graduates.
In addition to the reunion, MPS is collaborating with alumni networks to build an “Alumni Hub,” an online platform for graduates to connect with one another, their alma maters and district happenings. The district and alumni groups are also working to expand student internship opportunities, connect alumni with student mentoring opportunities and to assist in fundraising to support school needs and endow student scholarships.
