Sixth grade has been working on creating a positive classroom that is safe, respectful, and engaged in learning. The students had to work together in order to get their whole team across the Amazon River. If they lost bodily contact with their magic stepping stones, the current swept the stone away. During this activity, the sixth graders exemplified what it means to be safe, respectful, and engaged in learning. Great learning activities happening at our #VanguardPride schools!
We still need a head cook at the #VanguardPride Elementary school. Please contact Human Resources at 608-767-2595 extension 3004 if interested in learning more.

7th Graders in Mrs. Schmitt's Reading class are working on inference skills. Student groups were tasked with solving the mystery of who kidnapped the fictional principal. Given evidence exhibits A-F, limited interview information, and a description of the scene of the crime, students used inference skills to determine what is known about the victim, who the culprit could be, and what evidence points to that solution. Great work! #VanguardPride

7th grade math did a cups challenge to build community! Using only a rubber band and string, the students were challenged to move 10 cups into different formations. As students completed different formations, they were given more difficult challenges, but they actually got faster at the challenges because they worked as a collaborative team and communicated with each other! Nice job #VanguardPride 7th graders!
Wisconsin Heights Elementary is holding an Open House on Friday, September 15, 2023, 5:30pm - 6:30pm! Come on out and stay for the #VanguardPride Homecoming Football Game!
7th grade math played Back to School Jenga to get to know each other. Each Jenga block had a color on it that corresponded to a question about the students. As students pulled out blocks and increased the size of the towers, they had to answer questions about themselves. At the end of class, the students were quizzed on their classmates with a game of guess who where Mrs. Meinholz read interesting facts about each student, and the class had to guess who she was describing! What a great #VanguardPride way to get to know each other!
Happy Homecoming Week Wisconsin Heights! As we celebrate our current students, and those who came before, we invite our community to participate in these events! Go Vanguards! #VanguardPride
