Copperdome Gift to Alumni Association

The Alumni Association received 1944, 1945, 1946, 1947 and 1974 50th Anniversary editions of the SHS Copperdome in the mail today. They were a gift from Tina Hill, daughter of Denise (Dix) Hill, Class of '47, who passed in 1986.

After perusing each yearbook, it was comforting to know that the same high standards and educational leadership that distinguished Shorewood from other high schools back then are still alive and well today.

Hail to thee, Shorewood!

Class of '78

Please support the SHS Alumni Association today! It's a great way to stay in contact with classmates, get class reunion support, and stay abreast with news and developments at your alma mater.


  1. A complete set of yearbooks can be found at the SHS library on the second floor of the Administration Building. The Shorewood Historical Society (lower level of the Shorewood Public Library) and the Downtown Central Branch of the Milwaukee Public Library also have a set.


Other Funding Targets

How does the Alumni Association decide its priorities, and where does the money go?

Fundraising: Though fundraising is secondary to its mission of support for alumni of the school, according to its 501(c)(3) charter, the Shorewood High School Alumni Association raises money for one purpose - to support the Shorewood Schools.

The priorities of the Alumni Association have previously not been set, as this 2010 is the first year of having raised money on behalf of the school.

At the beginning of the Alumni Association's fiscal year, July 1, all Alumni will be offered the opportunity to vote on their priorities for the direction of those funds. Following the success of the impromptu Costumer Fund support, it has become clear that financial priorities for the Alumni Association need to be set by its members, which is defined by anyone who graduated from Shorewood High School.
