From the desk of Principal Wickus
On January 19, 2015, the Mauston Board of Education voted on three referendum questions. April 7, 2015 will be your voting day for this referendum. The Leadership team and the Board of Education believe that we have limited the referendum to the items that are crucial to operating and maintaining our high quality programs and campuses. Please watch for some listening sessions to help community members understand the questions and crucial needs of the district.
January has flown by and the students continue to make gains in Reading and Math based on our most recent STAR screener. Thank you to all the Educators, Support Staff and volunteers that work with our students to help in the success of our students.
This month I visited every classroom. I had the opportunity to see the Kindergarteners working on coloring, gluing, and cutting. The first graders were engaged in a Math lesson where they were learning about grouping. They were engaged and collaborating with each other. The second graders were learning about making graphs. The third graders were working in centers on reading. The fourth grade were learning about creating a topic. All of the classrooms were highly engaged and the students were on task. A shout out goes to the Educators and the students!!
The Title One family night is February 10, 2015 from 4-7 pm. We will have a light snack offered (hot dog, chips, cookie and milk). Please join us for the fun activities. Dr. Weymouth will be on site to provide a presentation and answers to any questions you may have surrounding the upcoming referendum.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at 608-547-2741.
