Best Buddies group touches lives of special education and general students at MHS
Best Buddies has three pillars of their group's mission: friendship, employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In Best Buddies, special education students are paired up with general education students for school support, social events and general encouragement, often with life-changing results. See how the MHS Best Buddies chapter has begun to touch lives in positive ways for students, families, and staff! Enjoy!
Beginning Thursday, Nov. 14, automated phone calls are being made twice per week to alert parents when student lunch account balances become low or negative. Prior to this date, we were able to send email and text message reminders but we were unable to leave voice messages. We appreciate the District IT department's help in resolving this issue.
Remember that you may check your child's account balance through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. If your child's balance drops below $5.00 and you do not receive a voice message on Monday or Thursday, please notify Tina Otto at 262-363-6200 ext 25602
Community Access Channel - Time Warner Update
Around September 11th, 2013, Time Warner Cable converted the Mukwonago Community Access channel from analog to digital.
Mukwonago residents who have a Time Warner cable box can still view the community/school access channel on Channel 13.
Residents who have a digital-tuner in their flat screen tv but who do not use a Time Warner cable box should rescan for digital channels to find the community access channel on digital channel 15.13 (a.k.a. 15-13).
Mukwonago residents who have neither a Time Warner cable box nor a flat screen tv with digital tuner may contact Time Warner for a "Digital-to-Analog" adapter to view Channel 13. (Please be aware that Time Warner has stated they will assess a $0.99 monthly fee per adapter for Digital-to-Analog adapter use starting in January, 2015.)
The Mukwonago Area School District is part of a local consortium of fifteen Waukesha County special education departments who have continued to provide an educational community service.
The mission of the group is to present timely and informative information, in a neutral forum, for parents and professionals who work with children.The lectures and presentations offered each school year provide essential links, knowledge, and networking to entire community for the ultimate benefit of our students. More info is on the Parent/Guardian Workshop link.

For all the parents, and supporters of our community, we offer an inside view of learners in action.
