Items will be wrapped, labeled and ready to be put under the tree! Donations can be dropped off in the wrapped boxes in the front entry way, and all items are greatly appreciated. Gently used items are perfect! Tools, games, knick knacks, toys, puzzles you name it! The High School Student Council greatly appreciates all help during this time.

Mrs. Brandl's 10th grade English students reluctantly took a break from their short fiction project to pose for a selfie. They're starting fiction from an assigned theme and developing a story with a fully developed set of characters, a well-designed setting, and a clear conflict.
Some people say that “Magic” happens in the Speech Room! Students magically learn how to make sounds correctly and, before you know it, they are speaking clearly and talking all the time! One of the ways that magic happens is by learning through various play-based activities, carpet time, and table time. Students learn to match letter sounds with letter symbols while working on the ABC rug. They learn how to put the sounds they learned into words through play-based activities like the doll house, farm yard, play-dough, etc.
All 6th grade students have a study skills class twice a week. They have spent the fall learning how to prioritize, stay organized, ask questions if they need help, and the ins-and-outs of being middle school students! As the year goes on this class will learn techniques for taking notes, using their textbooks, setting goals, and having a growth mindset. This group of Wildcats has a bright future!
The 4K friends have been learning about patterns. Today they completed a Turkey Tail Pattern book where they had the opportunity to color the each turkey's feathers in a ABAB pattern. We do activities like this in the 4K room because it helps students learn the content while being engaged.
Mrs. Fowell is looking for a little help setting up for the honors band. She will start setting up tonight at 7 pm in the gym and band room. Please come if you are able, many hands make light work.
La Farge Schools honored our Veteran's today in a ceremony held in the gymnasium. Our students did a great job recognizing those who have served for us and continue to do so through singing songs, reading poems, creating artwork and playing music.

On Wednesday, November 9, the juniors and seniors traveled to Viroqua to participate in Youth Government Day, a program sponsored by the American Legion. Students watched court proceedings, then went to the VFW for a lunch sponsored by the American Legion, and presentations by members of the American Legion, Sheriff John Spears, District Attorney Tim Gaskell, and Judge Darcy Rood.
4K-3rd grade families gathered for Family Literacy Night on November 9. Families enjoyed Storytime with Mrs. Jacobson, picked out some books to take home, and had the opportunity to sign up for a Public Library card. While caregivers learned more about the why, what, and how of reading with Mr. Hansen and Mrs. Curtis, children shared their dreams or drew themselves in the night sky with Miss Grainger, Miss Wilson, Miss Smedema, and Mrs. Wirts. The evening will be the first of other family events this year.
