GIVE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL A “HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE”

The outdoor athletic facilities in Sherman Park’s Washington High School are deteriorating and have fallen into disrepair. Help the students at WHS live up to their potential by giving them a safe place to practice, play and build life skills. 

Common Ground, helping to revitalize the Sherman Park area, has a goal of raising $500,000 towards this improvement – and every dollar raised will be MATCHED by Milwaukee Public Schools*.

You can help restore these facilities and continue the legacy of positive change for Purgolders of today – and tomorrow!

WHY WE NEED TO UPGRADE THE FIELD AT WASHINGTON HIGH

The current facilities are unusable
– Girls soccer practice is frequently canceled because the field is flooded
– Track and field athletes can’t use their spikes on the current walkway
– The outdoor basketball equipment hasn’t been replaced in decades
– Every day, track and field athletes are losing an hour of practice time due to travel to other locations

Repairing the field will…
– Allow students to participate in athletics at their own school
– Foster a multi-generational outdoor recreation space for thousands of students and community members
– Increase public safety and send a message that the neighborhood matters
– Continue to foster the Sherman Park neighborhood revitalization Common Ground has created

 

Bunny Raasch, WTMJ (?) just happened to stop and interview our party graduation night. Absolutely a big surprise she stopped in well into the party. There were some nice footage after she allowed us to clean up a few cans and bottles. A wonderful grad came to me after I got back from Vietnam. She sent me a check for some of the damage to my parents home because of the party. ie , my parents took all in stride. I can explain a lot later. She also sent a video showing a whole bunch of us dancing. If anyone has some power with local channel 4/6/12, is there an archive going back that far ????? - Gene Danielson
