Art Club Visits Glass Studio
The Art Club celebrated their year of community service and general art-fullness by visiting Square One Glass Studio in Milwaukee, WI. We each had the opportunity to learn how to blow glass and create beautiful colored glass orbs that can be hung in windows or gardens. Pictures of our work will be coming soon.

Pewaukee Kiwanis Club Chooses Design Student's Work for Upcoming Events
Mrs. Bjork's Design class partnered with the Pewaukee Kiwanis Club for a "real life" design job. Students competed to design their own interpretations of the Pewaukee Beach Party Tee Shirt and Pewaukee RiverRun button. In the end the designs of Design student Tyler Stanczak were favored by the club and chosen for printing. Both designs were chosen due to their bold graphic colors, strong typographic design and outstanding composition. Congratulations to Tyler for his excellent work. Thanks to the Kiwanis for providing this wonderful opportunity to Pewaukee High School Visual Art Students.

So Why This Website, Not School Fusion?
We decided this site could provide us more flexible options to highlight the many fabulous accomplishments of our students. School Fusion will be the basic splash page for you and your student to access a link to this site. At each School Fusion Class page you will find a link to the class page for that specific course here.
Now that Pewaukee High School is a Google school and students have google accounts we decided to utilize the many tools that Google has to offer. To that end, homework assignments and deadlines will all be posted via the Google Calendar embedded on the Calendar Tab. Students will be given instructions how to subscribe to the calendar or they can always just visit the tab. When you click on a calendar event it will give you a description of the event details.
