On Wednesday, May 22nd, the sixth grade class from Campbellsport Middle School traveled to Camp Y-Koda in Sheboygan Falls. The cool, misty weather did little to dampen their spirits as the students were able to build friendships and use teamwork while learning how to paddle canoes and kayaks, trust each other on a belay team while rock climbing, work as a unit during archery, and explore together at the geocaching station. All of these activities provided first hand experiences tied to our social studies curriculum. Rock climbing reminded the students of the difficulty Hannibal of Crossing the Alps on his way to attack Rome. Canoeing and kayaking reminded the students of the Battle of Salamis between the Greeks and the Persians. Archery helped students see first hand how well trained the Persian mounted archers had to be during the battle of Plataea. Last but not least, the Geocaching station gave the students a way to use their knowledge of latitude and longitude in a practical way.
Due to an unexpected event, the Middle School Chorus Concert for Monday, May 13 will be postponed. The rescheduled day is Monday, May 20th at 7 pm in the Lang Auditorium.

Through our Child Development class, students completed a national program called "Main Street Philanthropy." Through this program, students researched non-profit organizations both qualitatively and quantitatively and evaluated their credibility as well as their impact on our community. This group, the Medical Marvels, did a Shave A Teacher's Head fundraiser in support of cancer charities, which was a cause personal to each of them. Students had to donate money to the teachers bucket that they wanted to see get their head shaved. We raised a total of $872.58, and had an excellent turnout of teachers willing to shave their head, and classes that wanted to participate! Mr Writt's class won (with the most money donated, per person) and Mr. Writt was also the teacher who had to get his head shaved. They divided the money raised up, with 50% going to the Ronald McDonald House, 25% to Big Brother's, Big Sisters, and 25% going to the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. Thanks to everyone who participated and help support this class.

This year with two members getting ill, two alternates had to step up and participate for those spots at the regional. Members of the team are seniors Jayson Johnson, Janie Hodny, Layton Stoffel, Chloe Koth, Rachel Baumhardt, Lily Lindgren, Abby Ruplinger. Juniors are Alyssa Warnecke, Ashley Dreikosen, Autumn Erickson, Hailey Brenner and sophomore Lily McCanathan. Alternates are junior Riley Shurpit who stepped up and made a yarn painting in the art history medium and freshman Alayna Meilahn in the drawing category. Freshman Tessa Homuth was the third alternate. The three students going to state for their onsite performance will make another project in Madison in three hours. Those students are Johnson in drawing, Dreikosen in printmaking and Ruplinger in digital photography. The long term artwork heading to Madison: drawings from Johnson and Warnecke, painting by Hodny, print by Dreikosen, ceramic tea set by Stoffel and Koth, sculpture by McClanathan, mosaic by Brenner and digital photographs by Lindgren and Ruplinger. The artwork will be hung in a gallery at the UW campus and judged again with the other winners from the regionals around the state.
