Community members willing to attend the presentations can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 262-472-8203 to sign up by Friday, April 28. Members of the Whitewater High School Class of 2023 are currently preparing for the annual Portfolio Event which will be held on Wednesday, May 24, 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the high school. This event for seniors allows them to showcase their academic achievements, celebrate their accomplishments, and share their postsecondary career and academic plans before graduation. To make the presentations more meaningful, students present to an audience of WHS staff members and members of the community along with family and friends who are invited to attend. Students present examples of their best work in core academic and elective areas, share 2 or more examples of their involvement in activities in and outside of school, or work experiences, and at least one service activity that had special significance. Students then describe their future career & educational plans and the pathway they have chosen to accomplish their career goals. Graduates end their presentation by summarizing the most important learning experiences they’ve had in high school and how they hope to use their knowledge and skills to become a productive and responsible member of society.

Dear WUSD Families and Greater WUSD Community, This is a day of sadness and grieving over the loss of one of our own, Ricardo (Ricky) Lopez-Navejas Jr., a sophomore at Whitewater High School (WHS). Ricky was a member of the WHS basketball program. The Lopez-Navejas family has requested that tonight's home basketball game (Senior night vs. Evansville) be played in honor of Ricky. Therefore, we will be holding a moment of silence at the beginning of each of the games to honor Ricky. We welcome members of the school community to come and show support to the family. Additionally, we will sponsor a collection with the proceeds going to the Lopez-Navejas family. Please help us to keep the family and our school community in your thoughts. Ricky will forever be Whippet! #TheWhippetWay #1Family
