There’s so much happening in Fond du Lac
Now that the school year is underway, we have much to be proud of in the Fond du Lac School District. We’d like to share a few highlights with you.
In early October, a survey mailer went out to Fond du Lac residents asking for input related to Fond du Lac School District’s facilities. It shared, “While we have done our best to maintain these schools, a significant investment is needed to address the following: safety and security, building systems, American with Disabilities ACT (ADA) Compliance, and educational support.” Survey results will be presented at an upcoming Board of Education meeting and will also be available on the website.
Coming up soon is the high school musical, with shows taking place November 1-4. This year, students are performing the musical version of A Christmas Carol. Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens, breathe fantastic new life into this classic tale. It’s a wonderful opportunity—especially for chorus and theater alumni—to check out what always proves to be a great show.Read more
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:Read more

Why Should You Attend Your Class Reunion?
Summer is almost upon us, which means some committees are planning class reunion events to take place in the next few weeks or months. This can be an exciting time, while also creating a little anxiety for many.
High school can be a great time in our lives, but also a challenging one. Thus, it's common for some people to want to leave it all in the past.
In reality, class reunions are great opportunities to reconnect with old friends, classmates and even teachers. You can catch up on what everyone has been doing over the past few years or decades. All told, there are far more reasons to attend your class reunion than to skip it.
Proceed with confidence
One of the most common reasons alumni cite for not attending their class reunions is anxiety. They may get wrapped up in the details of what they think a reunion is all about — instead of what it actually is. These are social events. You are there to see people with whom you haven’t been able to keep in touch. It's not about comparing salaries, cars, house sizes or job titles.Read more
