WAWM Recreation Department’s 3rd Annual Cuts for Kids Event

WAWM Recreation Department’s 3rd Annual Cuts for Kids Event

WEST ALLIS, Wis. – The West Allis  – West Milwaukee Recreation & Community Services Department hosts the 3rd Annual Cuts for Kids event on August 28 at the Recreation Center in efforts to give local children confidence as they begin the new school year.


With the new school year starting soon, parents and kids often need to make a tough decision about whether to purchase new school supplies or receive a new haircut. Prices for both are rising and a new haircut usually falls to the back burner with school necessities being more important. 

“At the Recreation Department, we want to give students the confidence to walk into their first day of school with the simple act of a free haircut,” Program Manager Bobby Foreman said. “This is our 3rd Annual event and each year we see our community working together to make this event bigger and better for the children who attend.”

The event runs from 9 am – 3 pm at 2450 S. 68th Street in West Allis where WAWM district elementary age students receive a complimentary haircut along with school supplies to help prepare them for the upcoming school year. Donations the WAWM RCS are still looking for includes folders, notebooks, pencils (24 count), markers (10 pack), crayons (24 pack), colored pencils (24 pack) and pencil cases. 

Anything on this list above will directly impact the students in the WAWM School District. The department is currently looking for more barbers and hairstylists to take part in the day. 

In the past, there have been nine barbers/salons along with food from Rupenas, backpacks and school supplies from Khalsa Aid and individual donors with stools from B&K Bar Supply. 

If you are interested in making a difference cutting hair during the event, please contact Bobby Foreman at foremanr@wawmsd.org or call 414-604-4968. If you are interested in making a donation or sponsoring the event, please contact Robyn Elliott at elliottr@wawmsd.org or call 414-604-4912. For media inquiries or to attend the event day of, please contact Robyn Elliott. We appreciate your generosity and effort.

2023 WAWM Winter/Spring Activity Guide

2023 WAWM Winter/Spring Activity Guide

The West Allis West Milwaukee Recreation & Community Services Department 2023 Winter/Spring Activity Guide is live at wawmrec.com!


Highlighted in this issue is the 2nd Annual Senior Prom on page 32. Last year, this event welcomed over 100 seniors from the community for a fun-filled afternoon with lunch, sweets, dancing, a live band and MORE! Many attendees had previously never attended an event like this before, so our Senior Prom was the perfect way to warm their hearts and to connect them with others in the community.

Reignite old rivalries and meet up with old friends at the 48th Annual Alumni Basketball Tournament. Mark your calendars for December 21 and 22 at Lane Intermediate. Bragging rights are on the line once again so sign your team up for $25 and get ready for a great time. We hope you are as excited as we are to get together, reminisce and play some fun, competitive basketball.

New course offerings this session include Yoga for Mental Health for participants 13 years of age and older. These courses are designed to help you use yoga as a tool to live your best life along with bringing you a brighter state of physical health and mental well-being. Some topics discussed are Depression Relief, Stress Release and Management and ADD, ADHD & AUDHD Management.

Each guide includes a portion in the back to Champion for a Child, where you can donate to the WAWM RCS Scholarship Fund. Recent research has shown that children from lower income families are less likely to participate in sports. Over 60% of the students in our district qualify for free or reduced meals which leave little to no discretionary money to enroll in youth programs or safe alternatives for after school activities. The Champion for a Child Scholarship Fund provides an opportunity to the children in our community and your donation will ensure that our students can reap all the benefits that youth sports and safe outlets have to offer. Any donation is welcome and gratefully appreciated.

Inside the guide are ways to get involved either by becoming a part-time team member, a volunteer coach or even a referee. Training is involved with each offering and is a great way to learn and impact our programs. These are just a small portion of what’s inside of the 2023 Winter/Spring Activity Guide which will launch on Monday, November 14. For more information, to register online or to update your contact information prior to the launch, please visit wawmrec.com.
