District Blog

This is the official online blog for the Shorewood School District. All content is created and published by Shorewood School District staff.

The blog does not publish public comments, but does invite site visitors to submit comments, which are sent by email to District staff. Comments provide the District and the School Board with important feedback from community members regarding the blog posts, and then District staff respond as necessary to the feedback received.

Mental Health Awareness Event

On Thursday, May 22, the District will be hosting an evening for mental health awareness beginning at 6 p.m. The event will include a mental health awareness fair, with booths from various mental health providers, professionals, and community organizations, including RED (The North Shore group dedicated to mental health awareness) and NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Health). The fair will be held in the lobby of the Shorewood High School auditorium (*please note the change).  

At 7 p.m., the District will host a performance of the play Pieces- In My Own Voice in the SHS auditorium.  This is the youth version of the production; it will specifically address ADHD, depression, post-traumatic stress, bipolar, schizophrenia, and suicide.  We feel this is an appropriate play for SIS students with a parent/guardian. SHS students can attend alone, but we are strongly encouraging all students to attend with a parent/guardian if possible. The performance will be 35 minutes long, and a talkback session will be held afterwards.

It is the District’s hope that this production will provide another avenue for students, parents, staff, and community members to have a safe, open, and honest conversation about mental health.

This event will also be open to other North Shore school districts.
