This past week, eCampus Educators Alexis Hail and Jenna Retzlaff met a Ukrainian mom to discuss her daughters' enrollment into WUSD's eCampus virtual school. Olga Lytvynova shared her story from her family's current home in Poland and is eager to get her 2nd and 5th grader back to school! Our #WatertownWay eCampus Academy staff has partnered with US University Pathways in recent months to enroll international students into eCampus to earn a WUSD diploma and a pathway to a Wisconsin college. Connecting with Olga and her family is an outgrowth of this effort and one that WUSD is pleased and honored to be able to support!

They were also given extra stickers when showing responsible, respectful and safe behaviors in the Media Center. Great job!
