A Wild(cat) Homecoming

A Wild(cat) Homecoming

The varsity football victory against Brookfield Academy (31–0) may have been the marquee event of Homecoming 2018, but there were plenty of other fun-filled happenings to build school spirit. From cross-divisional spirit-sign-making activities and a ComedySportz show to the Junior Wildcat Jamboree, Willie’s Fun Fest, and an all-school pep rally featuring some of Milwaukee’s most popular mascots, this year’s homecoming did not disappoint. The entire school community was involved in celebrating USM and cheering on our Wildcat athletes.
