Didn't "Donny Show" go to Shorewood and then move to Grafton? Why isn't he being recognized for solving all of our country's problems here on Patch?

I am a SHS Alum, Rolando. I did not move to Grafton though. Still not sure where that came from. I am honored that my ideas are recognized as problem solving. Thank you for your continued support Mr. Peabody. Anne L, cute video. That is one of my favorite movies. Thank you for linking it again. I got quite the laugh as I enjoyed it one more time.

Any specifics on the Friday ceremony at 11 in the studio theater? Is it just for select students? Are there any public ceremonies, or ceremonies involving all the students at SHS and SIS? I checked the Facebook page and Twitter feed for the district and the school website. The details in all those places are sketchy, too.
