Parent/Community Involvement 

The school district is fortunate to have strong parental involvement In our schools. Parental involvement is important to our programs. Parents and teachers stay in touch to encourage student performance. Strong parent organizations support the work of all District schools. Parents and community members support the School District by participating in our active Parent/Teacher organizations; volunteering as tutors or chaperones, sharing ideas at school building team meetings, attending student performances and so much more.

Community stakeholders also partner with the school by providing expert guidance on one of the District’s many advisory boards or assisting with one of the many organizations that partner’s with the district. A sampling of parent and comummnity organizations include:

Booster Clubs

The District is fortunate to have several booster clubs supporting our athletic and arts programs. These clubs provide invaluable support.

The support generated by the club goes towards uniforms, athletic equipment, PA systems, end of season banquets, field renovations, and our athletic trainer. It is a behind-the-scenes organization that truly makes a difference in the community.

The Shorewood Orchestra Boosters have provided funding for guest artists and clinicians, classroom equipment, orchestra awards and certificates, and summer camp scholarships.  The Boosters are also crucial to facilitating student fundraising for SIS and SHS orchestra trips.
