  • Prayer Request

    On Sunday, July 17, Science Department Coordinator Tim McEachern's wife, Melissa, gave birth to their son, Callen Jack. Due to pregnancy complications, Cal was born 11 weeks premature weighing in at one pound 13 ounces and 14 inches long. Cal is in Children's Hospital NICU. We ask our Wisco family to pray without ceasing and to pray boldly and with confidence that Cal continues to heal and grow. Pray that God continues to show his grace, mercy, and power, and for Tim and Melissa to have peace and trusting hearts on this journey. Callen's recovery has been nothing short of miraculous.

    This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him (1 John 5:14-15).

    ATTENDANCE – COURSE CREDIT POLICY
    Regular attendance is considered to be essential for the earning of credit at the high school level. Course credit will be forfeited on the 16th absence to 1st period of a semester course or on the 14th absence to any semester course which meets during class periods 2-8.  Course credit will be forfeited for any quarter course when the student reaches 8 absences during that quarter. These would include all absences recorded as a part of the student’s attendance record (excused, family vacations, unexcused, and truant). These would not include absences for school related activities. A full-time student is enrolled in a minimum of seven units per year. When, because of lack of attendance, a student has lost credit in one-half of those units, that student will be dropped from enrollment.

  • WLHS Gives Thanks

    Two years ago today, March 16, 2020, Governor Evers announced a shelter in place order that closed schools, moving us into asynchronous virtual instruction until the end of the semester. Significant mitigation measures including hybrid learning marked the following (2020-21) school year. Today we operate under near normal conditions with no students in quarantine.

    The two-year anniversary of shelter in place can prompt plenty of reflection, but let one truth rise above any memory: God is faithful. Wisco's 119 year history has spanned the Great Depression, two world wars, and more than one pandemic. Most important, our operation is still founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By his grace and to his glory we continue to serve, and "in shadow of the Almighty" (Psalm 91:1) we rest.

    In 1990, Milwaukee became a pilot for a new program that allowed parents to choose the school their children will attend. Under “Choice” the dollars designated to educate a child would follow an eligible student to the school the family had chosen. Since the 2000-01 school year, WLHS is one of now 131 schools participating in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program which currently enrolls over 27,000 students. During the 2015-16 school year, WLHS also joined the Wisconsin Parental Choice program that allows students outside of Milwaukee to select WLHS.

    National School Choice Week shines a spotlight on the positive outcomes that students have achieved through the Choice programs. WLHS is grateful for the expanded way “Choice” has allowed us to serve the congregations and elementary schools in our Wisco Conference.

    Just before Christmas break, WLHS students in the Chick-fil-A Leadership Academy organized a Soles for Jesus (SFJ) shoe drive.

Thank you to all who donated shoes, as well as those who contributed monetarily.
