Milwaukee Public Schools salutes the Milwaukee Bucks for winning the NBA championships! The Bucks have been amazing partners and role models to the Milwaukee community. We are proud of the team and grateful for their ongoing support.
As individuals, as a team, and as an organization, the Bucks play an important part in the community. Students of all ages look up to and are inspired by players who are living the dream of playing in the NBA. The current roster of players has shown exceptional character both on and off the court through the generosity, kindness, and respect that they regularly demonstrate in the community.
