Program begins at noon … then a parade of squads to raise awareness, and funds for breast cancer research.
See you there!
Thanks to South Milwaukee Police Chief Ann Wellens, the South Milwaukee schools and many, many others for helping make Justice for a Cure Day another great success.
That check in the photo is for $5,178.49 — money raised through the hard work of local students through a variety of activities and events held today and in recent weeks.
Great work. Inspiring. And a terrific tribute to those who are fighting the battle against breast cancer, those who have won it, and those who have lost it.
A note from Andrea Kaplan, South Milwaukee High School associate principal … she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On October 21st the School District of South Milwaukee will Go Pink to support Justice for a Cure. In celebration of this great cause the Middle School will raise funds and host the Pink Day Assembly. I am excited to have this opportunity at the middle school and look forward to working with many groups throughout the district to make this event memorable.
This year there will be a portion of the assembly dedicated to celebrating breast cancer survivors within our community or who have a tie to our community. It is important to show our students the reality and impact that breast cancer has on not only ourselves but on our community.
If you are a survivor or you know a survivor who lives or has ties to the South Milwaukee community I would like to personally invite you or them to be a guest at our assembly. Our special guests will not have a speaking part but will have a spotlight moment.
Please feel free to forward this information to parents, family members, friends or anyone you know that would be willing to be a guest for this amazing celebration.
RSVP to Ms. Kaplan for more information.

At Tuesday’s city council meeting, South Milwaukee school leaders and students presented checks totalling nearly $9,000 for the Susan G. Komen Justice for a Cure campaign. That includes $8,279 raised through the high and middle schools, $226.86 from Lakeview Elementary and $400.11 from Rawson Elementary. T-shirt sales alone — both through the schools and the South Milwaukee Fire Department — topped $7,000.
Thanks to Police Chief Ann Wellens, the DECA marketing class at the high school and other local and school officials for leading this effort. It’s great to see South Milwaukee continue to get behind worthy causes like this.
