FHS change in Parent-Teacher Conferences

In the September 26th edition of the Saber Spotlight we noted the changes that have occurred this year with Parent-Teacher Conference.  A recent Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article also shed light on these changes.  This year we will transition to Parent-Teacher Conferences as needed based on individual student needs.  Parents are welcome and encouraged to reach out to their child’s teaches whenever there is a question or concern in order to set up a time to meet with the teacher.  Likewise, teachers should be contacting parents when academic progress is lacking.  These meetings are flexible in the sense they can be face-to-face, via phone, or virtual.  Please click here to read more.

The ADAMM Tools for Schools grant program annually awards $10,000 a year in Snap-on Industrial tools to area high school automotive programs.  Our auto dealership members are committed to assisting the high schools in keeping their technical education programs strong.  We hope by doing this that we can attract quality students to our industry that will continue their education beyond high school and ultimately become our employees, managers and owners of the future.

FHS Visit by Grim Reaper

Grim Reaper

Friday was “White Out Day” sponsored by SADD (Students Againt Destructive Decisions). Statistics say that every 53 minutes someone is killed by a drunk driver.  Today there was a tone that rang every 53 minutes to signify that death.  28 students/staff were “Killed” or whited out to represent the total number of people killed each day in alcohol related car crashes.  The “grim reaper" took students from class, they wore white and had their face whited out - for the rest of the day as they attended classes, they were silent.  This activity was also incorporated into our Prom Pep Assembly to stress the importance of not drinking and driving.  Great job SADD!
