Be Counted Spirit Week

Celebrate Third Friday Count Day through Be Counted Spirit Week, September 14 to 18! MPS students, families, teachers, fans, and community members are encouraged to have fun and show MPS spirit on social media.

Why Your Participation Matters

Third Friday is one of the most important days of the school year! On the third Friday of September, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction counts all students. These numbers are used for calculating state funds that are provided to public schools. Be counted! Make sure your child attends school on Friday, September 18.

How to Be Counted

MPS Students: On Friday, September 18, log in to your classes using a favorite or customized image as your profile picture. Your teacher will send us a photo of your class showing all the profile pictures from your class. You can also download one of the images below and use it as your Google profile photo.

How to Show Your School Spirit

Post your photos and videos using the hashtags #MPSspiritweek and #MPSProud, tag MPS in your social media posts, or email your photos and videos to comm@milwaukee.k12.wi.us. Be sure to include your name and the name of your school.
