With the warm weather upon us, the following is a reminder of proper dress while in school.  This information can also be found in the school handbook:

Students will be required to dress appropriately for school in order to maintain good decorum and a favorable academic atmosphere, both of which require a healthy, safe, non-disruptive, non-offensive and non-distractive environment. An individual’s dress and personal appearance should reflect sensitivity to and a respect for others. A few rules to note are these:

 Some type of footwear must be worn.

 Headgear is not allowed inside the school, unless specifically required by the instructor in the classroom, throughout the entirety of the school day, and will be left in lockers.

 Students are required to wear safety or special purpose equipment whenever it is required.

If in the opinion of any staff member, a student’s dress and/or appearance is 1) inappropriate to the maintenance of good decorum, or a favorable academic atmosphere; 2) detracts from the learning process; 3) is an undesirable influence upon other students; 4) violates one of the above noted rules, the staff member will direct the student to the administration.

Badger Boys State Program/Badger Girls State Program:  

This program helps prepare high school juniors to become leaders of tomorrow and is a great academic experience and resume builder. It is a week-long program that offers approximately 900 high school juniors to experience a different form of citizenry and leadership then what they’ve experience previously. The program allows students to create their own state government and explore topics from the importance of local community decisions to the role of the state congress and the governor’s cabinet, all through an immersive, hands-on experience. Through this simulation, they develop a sense of individual obligation to the community, state, and nation.  In addition, they participate in a series of instructional classes that build skills such as public speaking or assist them in learning more about specific careers, like law enforcement and legal careers.  If you are interested, please see Ms. Brittanie.
