It should have been a disaster — a ceramics project that exploded in the kiln, leaving one hardworking art student with a few shards of broken pottery instead of a completed piece fit for her portfolio.

But instead, it was a life lesson. "I kind of just rolled with it, and I made it into a piece that was way better than the original that I had," said Sarah Kopacz, a senior at St. Joan Antida High School and creator of the exploding dish. "Happy mistakes, I guess."

Official St. Joan Antida High School statement regarding transportation lawsuit


From Paul T. Gessner, Head of School:

"Safe and reliable student transportation is a top priority for St. Joan Antida High School families and the leadership team of the school. State law requires that Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) provide transportation as a basic need for families living within the district. Without transportation, our families do not have the option to send their children to the school of their choice.

On behalf of our families, we have requested that MPS honor its role and responsibility in ensuring that our students' transportation needs are met in the same manner that it does for students attending city-wide public schools. It is our intent to achieve a fair resolution to this issue, utilizing the court system, so that our students and their families receive the same transportation benefits as those attending public city-wide high schools."
