Amy Belle Families, Thank you for your flexibility this morning as we all had to respond quickly to the implications of the water tank malfunction. Our maintenance crew has since been able to fix the problem. The school day will proceed as usual tomorrow, Friday, January 27th. Thank you, Katie Kohel Amy Belle Principal
Dear Amy Belle Families, Due to a water tank malfunction, Amy Belle Elementary currently does not have access to water. Therefore, we must close school today, Thursday, January 26, for all students and staff. Please make the appropriate accommodations to pick up your child from school by 10:30 AM. We are working closely with a maintenance crew to resolve the situation. If the fix can not be completed by the start of school tomorrow, school will be canceled. We will keep you posted as we know more about the status of school tomorrow, January 27th. Please use our parent drop off/pick up line in the back of the building to pick up your child. Pull up to one of the cones and a staff member will bring your child to your car. Thank you for your understanding. Katie Kohel Amy Belle Principal Dr. Chris Reuter Superintendent

Thank you for understanding the need to cancel school and ensure the safety of our students and staff. There will be no virtual learning for students or before or after school activities tomorrow. Have a safe and enjoyable winter break and a happy new year. Thank you, Germantown School District

Take a look at a few of the projects the GHS Tech Ed Program was working on throughout #ManufacturingMonth! -Mr. Stachowiak's Woodworking Design and Techniques class constructed sling-back and Adirondack chairs. -Mr. Muenzmaier's Automotive One class worked on personal and donated cars to complete a checklist of tasks, including oil and filter change, thermostat replacement, tire rotation, installation of new spark plugs, and more! -Tech Ed students attended the Manufacturing and Trade Career Expo where local manufacturers, and those involved in the trades, provided interactive displays and conversations to raise student awareness of companies, opportunities, and corresponding educational pathways. Thank you to the Germantown Chamber of Commerce WI and The Chamber - Greater Menomonee Falls & Sussex for bringing this event to local students!

During this week's Youth Drama Camp, two dozen young thespians-in-training are getting to experience all the excitement of Broadway—learning about acting, music, movement, and technical theatre under the direction of instructors Emily Keiner and Robin Canales. The students wrap their week with a performance Friday evening at the PAC showcasing everything they learned.
Summer School students in Mr. Neils's Radio News/Podcasting class work on interviewing, audio editing, and narration to create an audio news/feature piece. They've created great stories from their interviews of authors, filmmakers, coaches, police officers, and veterans, as well as representatives from the EAA and Milwaukee County Zoo. The class recently took a tour of 88nine Radio Milwaukee, where students learned about the inner workings of a radio station, including equipment, jobs, production, marketing, programming, and even a little economics. They are always such great hosts!
GSD students are really stretching their learning during Summer School classes—and picking up some new skills along the way. Hard to believe the 2022 session ends next week!
