September is a month that ushers in changes —the time when students head back to school, the leaves turn color, and the air gets a little cooler. It’s also a time when we look forward to welcoming back former students and staff for Homecoming festivities and all the other activities that abound in our school community.
As we look forward to the 2018-19 school year, we have much to be proud of in the Fond du Lac School District. Here are a couple of the highlights we would like to share:
On Friday, September 28, the Homecoming weekend celebration will kick off with the Homecoming Parade starting at 5:00 p.m. from the corner of Martin Avenue and 9th Street and marching down 9th Street to the Aquatic Center. Then join us as the #1 ranked Fondy Cardinals take on the Oshkosh West Wildcats at Fruth Field at 7:00 p.m. Other activities you might enjoy include the Girls & Boys Cross Country teams who will be hosting an invitational at Rolling Meadows Golf Course at 3:40 p.m. and the Girls Diving Invitational will be held at the Aquatic Center at 6:00 p.m.
The Architecture Construction Engineering (ACE) Academy, formerly called the Career Construction Academy, a 5,750 square-foot hands-on trades training facility, is under construction and will soon be completed with an Open House planned for January 16, 2019. This one-of-a-kind facility represents the largest collaborative effort between industry and education in the state of Wisconsin. It will provide our students with unique experiences that will prepare them for careers in architecture, engineering, carpentry, plumbing, electrical and more.
