Bonduel Middle/High School

We are introducing a new program that we have started here at Bonduel Middle School and High School called Student of the Month, which is sponsored by local businesses.

Each month, we recognize one student from each department. They are awarded a certificate as well as a reward from the business sponsor, which for this month, was Red Rooster Café and Catering. We are so appreciative of their support as well as the support of other businesses that have agreed to sponsor other months of the school year.

Gresham School District

The Wisconsin Association of School Boards has set Oct. 1-7 as Wisconsin School Board Week as a time to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our communities.

Gresham School District is joining all the public school districts across the state to celebrate Wisconsin School Board Week to honor local board members for their commitment to Gresham and its children.

“It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure out schools are helping every child learn at a higher level,” District Administrator Newell E. Haffner said. “They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability out Gresham community members expect.”

Gresham Community School

Gresham Community School had homecoming week last week. Dress-up day themes included twins, spirit, blast to the past and color wars. On Thursday the classes competed against each other in games such as Lifesaver pass, beach ball pass, dizzy bat race, tug of war and more. The senior class won the homecoming games followed by the juniors, freshmen, sophomores and the staff.

The Wildcat Invitational was held Saturday with the high school soccer and volleyball teams hosting tournaments. The volleyball tournament included Gresham, Gibraltar, Northland Lutheran and Bowler. The soccer teams were Gresham/Bowler, Wisconsin Valley Lutheran, Central Wisconsin Lutheran and Tri-County.

We had midterms and picture day on Thursday.
