As the 2022-2023 school year approaches, we are introducing #WildcatNation to some of our new staff! Please join us in welcoming Mr. Larson, our new Physical Education Teacher! My name is Kyle Larson. I am excited to be joining La Farge School as the new PE teacher! My wife and I have three kids and have lived in Coon Valley for 15 years. I have a Bachelors degree in Physical and Health Education from Winona State University, and I am looking forward to getting back into teaching after working in management for the past few years. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and many different sports, but golf has always been my favorite. I enjoy downhill skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, and hiking. We also like to fish on the water and more recently on the ice! I can't wait to meet all of you and be a part of the Wildcat family!
Out with the old and in with the new! We have new wildcat apparel on the way which means we need to make room! Come check out what we have at discounted prices. Apparel ranges from youth to adults, and only $5-$25.
