Soon the Humane Animal Welfare Society will be starting a new school-year session of our club for high school students called Animal Career Exploration (ACE).  This program is geared towards students who are interested in joining a profession working with animals.  This school year we’ll be running ACE as a virtual program, and will be able to offer students an opportunity to hear from and ask questions to speakers from all over the US.

 Students will hear guest speakers from a variety of professions talking about what they do from day to day in their job, what training and education were required for that profession, and what high school students can do now to start to plan for that career. 

 The cost of HAWS ACE is $10.00 per session.  Our first virtual meeting is on Wednesday, October 7 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

In addition to the BC attendance phone line: 262-785-3994, families can also use an email address: BCHSattendance@elmbrookschools.org to report the absence to the school. When reporting an absence, please provide the student's name and reason for the absence.  If they are missing school due to illness, it will be important to let us know ALL of your child's symptoms and any physician confirmed diagnosis such as COVID-19.  It will also be important to know if your child is staying home because they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. 

Please note that if a student is an in-person learner, they must be on-campus to be considered present.

Historically, the Elmbrook School District has hosted a yearly in person event in September that has provided hundreds of our families with timely information regarding post secondary options. 

We are shifting to a virtual format this year.  Unlike previous years when the event was held on one scheduled night, families will have access to speaker videos and presentations indefinitely to view at a time of convenience. Please look through this presentation and click through our various post-secondary sessions.

We are excited to bring you this opportunity and are appreciative of all the presenters that helped make this virtual experience possible. For any questions, please contact Jessica Premo at BCHS or Michelle McKenna at BEHS.
