A SPECIAL THANK YOU to all parents that volunteered throughout the school year.  We could not do it without you. 


  • Box Tops for Education ~ THANK YOU to Beth Brendemuehl for clipping, counting and mailing them out.
  • Econofoods Receipts ~ THANK YOU to Molly Wedde for adding and clipping receipts together.
  • Our Family ~ THANK YOU to MOMS Group for clipping and bagging the UPC symbols.

WIAA PHYSICALS -- Just a reminder to all students entering into Grade 5-8, you need to get a physical to participate in any sports and must be done before the first day of practice.  You will not be able to participate until the physical form (WIAA buffer card) or alternate card (available at mandatory meetings) and fee is in.


  • We are going to run the Scrip program – June 1 to May 31. We will be closing out the Scrip program on May 31st for this next year’s school year credit (2016-2017). We will try to get you a statement with our summer letter that will be going out around July 18.
  • Scrip earnings may be applied to your child’s or grandchild’s tuition.  The amount earned for this school year will reduce the amount of tuition you need to pay for the next school year.  Deadline for Scrip earnings this year is May 31, 2017.  After the deadline, keep using Scrip.  It will help you next year.  The highest amount earned to reduce tuition by a family last year was $1100.  This is an easy way to reduce the tuition you owe.
  • If you have any questions about Scrip, please contact Scrip coordinator, Teresa Wolf 920-410-1798 or email
