School Notes

Bonduel Elementary School

The fifth-graders at Bonduel Elementary got a taste of college in October when they visited the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay for the Phuture Phoenix program. We trekked the campus, getting a glimpse of the Weidner Center, Kress athletic facility, classrooms, library and dorms. It was amazing to hear so many of the students excited about the university with claims that they would like to pursue a degree there. The value in educating our youth about options after high school is as important as ever. Go, Phoenix!

Gresham Community School

On Nov. 11, all the kids met in the gym for our Veterans Day assembly. Newell Haffner and Ray Rigsby spoke, and the band played.

Parent-teacher conferences were held Tuesday and Thursday. While they were going on, the library opened its book fair.

On Tuesday, the elementary students received a reward for following the Wildcat Way during the first quarter. They got free popcorn and juice, and got to watch a movie and go outside. The Wildcat Way is to be respectful, responsible, kind and safe.

Gresham FFA is collecting for the annual Christmas is for Caring program. You can drop off donations at the school until Dec. 21.

On Dec. 6, during halftime of the boys basketball game, there will be a hat and mitten drive.
