Maybe you like shopping for school supplies.

Not only students, but teachers even got up to shake their groove thing.
Students from Vieau School, a bilingual school on the south side of Milwaukee, performed Hispanic dances at Maple Dale Middle School Thursday in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Everyone danced to music with heritage from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Students in first through eighth grades performed and then taught teachers and students at the end of the performance how to complete some of the dance moves. "It's just catching, and you saw it today when the children exploded. That's the enthusiasm that you pass onto your children," said Melissa Lloyd, Maple Dale-Indian Hill PTO member after the performance.

Foundation's 10th annual Red Carpet Bash once again raises thousands to help out teachers.
There was a record turnout at the 10th annual Maple Dale-Indian Hill Educational Foundation's 10th annual Red Carpet Bash Saturday at the Four Points by Sheraton in Brown Deer. Hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, dinner, live auction and dueling pianos were all part of the night's activities, which raised funds to help teachers buy supplies for the classroom. A 10-foot tall poster that featured the names of each of the district's 42 teachers was another item up for auction.

Rob Ricigliano writes about why he wants to return to School Board.
Editor's Note: This letter was written by Robert Ricigliano. For the last six years I have served on the Maple Dale-Indian Hill School Board. During that time we have achieved a lot, including a series of successful negotiations with our teachers’ union after years of no-agreement, passage of two referendums, and reversal of years of declining enrollment. In January, I filed my papers of “non-candidacy,” feeling that I would retire from the School Board. I am writing now to reverse that decision and to announce that I wish to run for another term on the Maple Dale-Indian Hill School Board as a write-in candidate. Recent events in the state and their impact on schools across Wisconsin compel me to continue to serve on the School Board…
