New Year parties aren't limited to a countdown on the evening of December 31! WLHS recently hosted a global New Year party to celebrate New Year traditions from around the world. As part of the festivities, WLHS international alumni submitted video greetings to our Wisco family. Click here to enjoy the video compilation!
Students at Honey Creek Hall organized a weekend event focused on do-it-yourself (DIY) flower arrangements, brightening their living space with some spring colors. The students assembled vibrant bouquets and also crafted personalized cards to gift to their friends. The organizers, seniors Gene Kantakanishtha and Minori Higashi, hoped to give their classmates a break from routine, enjoy some social interaction, and brighten up the winter atmosphere.
Students in the WLHS Residential Program enjoyed their annual trip to attend a professional basketball game. On January 13, the hometown Milwaukee Bucks defeated the popular Golden State Warriors in a close match. After the game, the WLHS group enjoyed the special opportunity of walking onto the court and each getting a chance to take a shot at the free throw line.
January had its moments of cold and snow, but students were able to enjoy some fun indoor activities to help fight the cabin fever. One group went to watch the Wave, Milwaukee’s professional indoor soccer team, who defeated the Dallas Sidekicks in an exciting match. Another group sang their favorite songs at their own private karaoke suite. Upcoming trips include ice skating, a trampoline park, and a professional hockey match.
WLHS held a blessing of the flag ceremony during chapel on January 29. Joanne Lee ('25), our international student from Singapore, carried her home country's flag, which WLHS Conference President Rev. Dr. Ken Fisher blessed. Joanne, who transferred to Wisco at the beginning of this semester, is the first student from Singapore to attend our school.
