On the last day of school, Wisconsin Heights Elementary honored and recognized the long-term retirees with the gift of a book that showcases their personality or was a favorite read-aloud of theirs in the classroom. This book will be displayed in the Elementary School so their presence will always be with us. Linda Acker - Head, Body, Legs ~ A Story From Liberia Kate Backus - The Dale of Despereaux Rosemary Doescher- The Good Egg #VanguardPride

#VanguardPride 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students celebrated the last day of school together by playing kickball, Kahoot, soccer, basketball, card games, reading, and walking the Wolf Run Trail. Students got to rotate to three different activities throughout the afternoon. Such a fun way to wrap up the year!
Did you know the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth was 134 degrees Fahrenheit in Death Valley, California? Did you know the heaviest watermelon ever grown is 350.5 pounds? 7th grade math does! #VanguardPride students celebrated their last day in math class by playing a trivia estimation game called Guesses and Wagers. Students worked in teams to guess the answers to summer trivia questions; After making their guess, each team placed 1 point and 2 point wager cards on which guesses they thought were the best. The closest guess without going over got an automatic 3 points and any team that "bet" on the closest guess received points as well. The students enjoyed learning statistics related to statistics as they are anticipating summer break!
Wisconsin Heights 4th graders put their math knowledge to the test at the end of the year by creating their very own math games. Each game practiced a 4th grade skill that students learned during the school year. ♟️🎲 #VanguardPride
Students and families of Wisconsin Heights Elementary enjoyed a #VanguardPride fun-filled evening at Lions Park in Mazomanie last week to celebrate the closing of a great school year! The live music, carnival games, hot dogs, popcorn, ice cream, and raffle baskets all added to the excitement. WHPTO is always looking for volunteers to help with events. Help with just one event, or as many as you would like, it doesn't matter. Next year there will be openings for Secretary, Social Sunshine, and Event Coordinator.

7th grade math students participated in "Chalkfest" to celebrate the end of their fourth quarter focus on geometry. They had to create a 3 ft by 3 ft mural using triangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids, and each shape had to be a certain area. The students sketched their designs and then created them in front of the middle school entrance using tape and chalk. So creative and they are nice to see outside the front doors! #VanguardPride
7th grade math broke out of their surface area unit! The students had to find the surface area of prisms and pyramids to unlock the box. Then, for the final combination, students were given a description of a prism or pyramid, and they had to figure out what it was describing and find the solid in the room to find the key. A fun way for these 7th graders to end the #VanguardPride 2022-23 school year!
#VanguardPride students in Early Childhood celebrated the last week of school with a Beach Day ⛱️. They played in the pool, read a story on beach towels, and ate a freeze pop for a snack.
7th Grade entrepreneurs in Mrs. Schmitt's Language Arts classes participated in a Shark Tank event. Student groups were tasked with developing a new consumer product, forming a business plan, filming a commercial, and creating a prototype. After two weeks of preparation, students presented to a panel of judges; Mr. Sinz (Superintendent), Mr. Swanson (Commercial Lender), Mr. Hubbard (NFL Frequency Coordinator), Mr. Elliott (NBC15 News Anchor), Ms. Sullivan (NBC15 News Anchor). The students gained insight into public speaking through words of wisdom from the Sharks. They were required to listen and respond to the Sharks' questions following the business pitch. Way to go, Vanguards! Watch for a shout out to Wisconsin Heights from Tim Elliot on The Morning Show Friday at 6:30am! #VanguardPride @nbc15madison
