A variety of enrichment opportunities are available for students during the school day and after school. Examples of these opportunities include the following:
STUDENT OF THE WEEK
All students in the school are recognized via this program. During their designated week, the student of the week for each class is recognized with an announcement and a special badge. Classroom teachers encourage the students to share special information about themselves during their designated week, the students' pictures are posted in the main lobby, and their names are published in the Whitefish Bay Herald.
All grade 1-5 students are invited to a special lunch during the month of their birthday or half-birthday.
All students in 4th and 5th grades have the opportunity to serve for the full school year on the Student Council and work with one of four teams on a variety of projects.
