Monday night, after several rounds of discussion the school board decided to spend $814,000 from their budget and $1.78 million of their fund balance to get started on the long 'punch list' that the schools have presented.

Muskego Public Library is vibrant with colors and textures of the work of young hands, as school art programs display their talent.
“Art Education: An Essential Piece of the Puzzle” is now on exhibit at the Muskego Public Library, a presentation of pieces from art students from first grade to high school. Dennis Severin, art teacher at Lake Denoon Middle School, said the display is an annual observation each March to emphasize the "value of art education for all students and to encourage support for quality school art programs." Youth Art Month provides an opportunity for the public to see the results of the skills that are developed in art education, which Severin said isn't something other subjects offered can provide. The student art exhibit is presented by art faculty from the elementary, middle and high school in Muskego.

After a four-year stint as Director of Student Learning with the District's administration, former principal reprieves role.
Strike up a conversation about education, and one can instantly sense both the expertise and passion resonating from Alan Groth.

About returning as Lakeview’s principal, Groth said, “It’s an exciting opportunity, and I’m looking forward to it. This school is very well-positioned to continue…
