Middle School and Kinder Kids, Team Up.

What do kindergarten students and middle school kids have in common? A knack for reading and learning from each other with the guidance of their teachers.

Since the start of the 2018 school year Kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Oien, Ms. Petrino, Mrs. Wentzel, and 6th grade teacher Mrs. Richardson have been working together to help bridge the gap of learning every Thursday by having both age groups come together to read and learn from each other.

The middle school students are in a "Leadership" club and volunteer their time in the Kinder classrooms as learning buddies by reading, helping with math, and writing. Middle school students learn the importance of volunteering. They also receive service award points in hopes of attending WeDay in April, which is a celebration party to honor students who make a difference by giving back.

Second Grade Students Make Persuasive Speeches.

Onalaska second graders delivered their historical persuasive speeches to their classmates. In this clip, Cohen is trying to persuade James Madison against going to war with Great Britain, in 1812, due to the potential interruption of trade. Nice work, Cohen.
