Looking Forward to a Wonderful 2024!

Happy New Year and welcome back! I hope you found time to rest and relax and are excited to return and continue the school year.

We have many exciting events to look forward to in the coming year. Please mark your calendars and plan to take part!

Kindergarten Enrollment Fair: We are adding many exciting new elements to this year’s fair. Families can learn about schools and enroll children ages 3, 4, and 5, plus the fair will offer free books for 500 families, free family passes to the Milwaukee Public Museum for the first 200 families, story time, an immunization clinic, and children’s activities from Milwaukee Rec.

Be sure to invite friends and relatives to join us on Saturday, February 3, 2024, from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. at South Division High School.

Montessori 50th Anniversary Celebration: This year, MPS marks 50 years of Montessori education, and we are excited to celebrate. The MPS Montessori program is recognized internationally as a gem in public education.

Families and the public are invited to attend our Open House event on Saturday, February 10, 2024, from 1:00–4:00 p.m. at MacDowell Montessori School. Join us to see our programs in action and celebrate decades of success.

Biennial Music Festival: The MPS Biennial Music Festival is celebrating its 100-year anniversary! This year, students will perform in drumlines, world drumming, bands, choirs, orchestras, modern band, and a celebratory trumpet fanfare.

Mark this exciting showcase on your calendar for May 1–2, 2024, at the UWM Panther Arena. Watch for more information.

School Expansions and Remodeling: Construction projects throughout the district are underway and will result in larger spaces, new technology, and cutting-edge learning tools.

Athletic facilities in our high schools are also seeing upgrades. Projects to modernize swimming pools are in progress, and soon new gymnasium additions will be ready for our student athletes. We know you will be excited to see your children using these new spaces to expand learning, fitness, and excellence.

Thank you for a great fall semester! Please continue to strive for excellent attendance as it is key to students’ academic success. I look forward to a great spring semester of exceptional learning.
