Dance Marathon is an annual dance event to help raise money for local children who are part of the Milwaukee Children’s Miracle Network. We had a blast raffling for prizes, playing carnival games, eating snacks, and dancing the night away! It was a great time learning about the cause and listening to personal stories from families who benefit from this event, as well as seeing other organizations across campus perform or donate. Dance Marathon raised over $25,000 this year for the kids!

On Tuesday, 2E and 3E celebrated Galentine’s Day with chocolate fondue, lots of treats, punch, and music in the basement. It was a great way to all hang out and relax from the first few weeks of school, and to take the time to “treat yo self.”
