The New Berlin Eisenhower High School Sparkle cheer team has been invited to perform at the International Cheer Union (ICU) World Championships in April. The Sparkle team will demonstrate the importance of the ICU’s Special Abilities Unified Division to the 80 nations in attendance to further promote this important and inclusive initiative.
As a result of this distinguished invitation, the Sparkle team is also in consideration to be selected as the United States National Team, to be determined in March.
ABOUT THE SPARKLE TEAM: The Sparkle team was formally approved as a school-sponsored team in fall of 2017. The idea to start a Sparkle team at Eisenhower came from current Eisenhower senior, Hailey Fortier, who worked with school officials and special education assistant, Jody Brill, to make the team a reality. Mrs. Brill, a cheer judge and former cheer coach, assumed head-coaching duties. The team, which is comprised of 11 Eisenhower cheerleaders, six of whom have special needs, is excited about the opportunity to attend and participate in the ICU World Championships
THE NEED: The Sparkle team will receive free lodging from the ICU and USA Cheer, but the program must pay for transportation, food, uniform alterations, and other trip-related expenses. Being the first year of existence, the Sparkle team does not have any funds built up to support this trip.
HOW TO HELP: The New Berlin Eisenhower Cheer Booster Club has created a GoFundMe page to raise funds for this trip. The goal is to raise $10,000 for this once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students. Please click here to help support Sparkle cheer. Checks made out to “Eisenhower Sparkle Boosters” can be mailed to New Berlin Eisenhower, Attn: Jody Brill, 4333 S. Sunnyslope Road, New Berlin, 53151. Additionally, donations can be dropped off in-person at Educators Credit Union, 15350 W. Howard Ave., New Berlin, 53151.
ABOUT THE ICU WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS: The ICU World Championships are held April 25-27 at the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando. The Special Abilities Unified Division is a newly formed division for the ICU World Championships, who is proud to be a global catalyst on this important initiative.
SDNB Kicks off Career and Technical Education Month with Visit from State Superintendent Dr. Tony Evers
The School District of New Berlin kicked off Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month with a visit from Wisconsin State Superintendent Dr. Tony Evers on Feb. 7. The student showcase and facilities tour, held at West Middle/High School, celebrated the many career-focused opportunities students are able to access to help inform their academic and career plans in high school and following graduation.
Those who have attended New Berlin schools know that our school district community is a special place. It means something to graduate from Eisenhower or West high school. And while the two schools have a healthy cross-town rivalry, we know that at the end of the day, we're all part of the same extraordinary community.
That's why we are so excited to launch New Berlin Nation, a digital community that will allow our alumni to stay engaged with all that's happening in our great school district. Here, our alumni, supporters and friends have access to news, mentor and volunteer opportunities, special events and an alumni directory. Visitors to the site will also find updates on how we are preparing today’s students to be the college- and career-ready graduates of tomorrow.
New Berlin Eisenhower and West graduates, former students, supporters and friends of the district are encouraged to sign up for New Berlin Nation to receive monthly emails with information on class reunions, profiles of alumni and news on district initiatives and events. There is also the ability for members to add their names to the online directory, designed to enable New Berlin Nation members to more easily connect with one another.
You are invited to take an online interest survey to provide feedback on the types of information that is valued within the New Berlin Nation community. We’re excited to get started and look forward to growing our relationship with all who are invested in the continued success of our schools, students and community.
