WHITEWATER: November 15th twenty-two Étude High School students ventured from Sheboygan down to the University of Whitewater for the annual UW-Whitewater High School Creative Writing Festival.
We are forever grateful for the continual support our school community shows us. Today is a day is a day internationally recognized as a day of giving. As you consider participating in Giving Tuesday, we ask that you consider a few ways to support the schools of the Étude Group. As always, we accept donations that help our Expanding Horizons fund. At its core, this fund helps us ensure that all students, regardless of socio-economic status, can access opportunities to further their educational goals. This includes funding for college vis 22852135 10155935150184124 2781729095894290688 n2 its, field experiences that integrate with student projects partial scholarships for international travel, after school programs that support college persistence such as ACT Prep, and opportunities for our students to work with high level professionals. All of these experiences build off of the work done in our school to help our young people after school.
Students need to feel safe when they come to school. They need to have tools to help them overcome frustrations. At Étude High School, we emphasize the building strong relationships with peers and advisors, we intentionally develop Habits of Mind through academic experiences, and we provide opportunities to practice mindfulness by offering yoga and QiGong. If trust or relationships are broken, we use Restorative Practices to rebuild our community. We are fortunate to have movement classes where students can also participate in an in-depth study of mindfulness and yoga, with a trained instructor in our teacher Molly King.
