In June and July, the district will send enrollment buses throughout the city to enroll children for the 2018-19 school year. Milwaukee families will be able to learn about the quality educational options for their children and enroll students from the comfort and convenience of their own neighborhood.
Part-time teaching is a new option that offers a great work-life balance for retirees or teachers balancing family and career. A limited number of positions are available. MPS also offers a track to a teaching license for individuals who meet specific criteria, including those with a bachelor’s degree looking to make a career change. Representatives at the Career Fair can provide details.
Principals and school leaders will be on site to offer on-the-spot interviews. Candidates should bring several copies of their resume. Selected candidates will be moved directly onto a pre-employment track that will require additional documents, background check, and other steps.

This was a great school year for the athletics program! We offered a total of seven teams, with over 150 students turning out for the various tryouts throughout the year and approximately 100 students had the opportunity to play on one of the teams. We also offered two new athletic opportunities at the middle school level, 7th & 8th grade girls basketball and 7th & 8th grade Co-Ed Volleyball. All the student athletes put forth great effort and demonstrated exceptional sportsmanship throughout their respective seasons, so please congratulate them on their success!
If we would like to continue to offer a variety of athletics in our school, and hopefully eliminate having to cut student athletes, or at least reduce the number of cuts, then we need your help! If you are interested in becoming a coach or an assistant for any sport, then please contact the Sports Coordinator, Adam Oldenburg, at 414-321-7960 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This should be done as soon as possible, as it takes time to process the paperwork that is required by the Milwaukee Recreation Department and this could be done over the summer, so that you would be ready to go at the start of next school year.

Sign up now—stay on track to graduate, or discover and explore! MPS is offering two sessions for learning this summer: June Term (J-Term) from June 4 to 29, and Summer Academy from July 2 to 27. Students can attend one or both sessions. All city of Milwaukee residents, grades K5 to 12, are eligible and can enroll at select sites.
Both sessions are designed for summer fun and will include science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM), music, outdoor activities, field trips, and more! Students can catch up, get ahead, or just have fun learning. Summer classes help students strengthen and retain skills so they start strong in the fall. High school students can earn up to one credit in each session through credit recovery, credit acceleration, and/or internships.
J-Term and Summer Academy are free! J-Term provides learning for students on the early start calendar, since their school year ends in mid-May. Summer Academy is available for students on both the traditional and early start calendars. Traditional calendar students looking for options in June are encouraged to look at the variety of summer enrichment camp offerings that can be found on the J-Term website.
The summer program has many community partners to deliver art, coding, music, theater, outdoor education, STEM, and many other offerings. Field trips to local museums and nature centers will allow students to discover their community. Summer enrichment camps allow students to explore new ideas and abilities.
Child care is provided through the MPS Recreation Department; fees may apply. Summer child care provides educational activities in a safe environment with caring, trained instructors.
This year, registration for elementary and middle school students will take place online through the MPS Parent Portal. Families who need to create an account or need assistance can visit MPS Central Services at 5225 W. Vliet St. or phone 414-475-8159. High school students should register with their guidance counselor.
