Barrie's classic tale, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years. Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

2019 Annual EAHS Dodgeball Tournament

2019 Annual EAHS Dodgeball Tournament "Dodgeball For Deb"

by: Jason Tadlock

Hello all parents, guardians, students, educators, and community members of Elkhorn. The Elkhorn Area High School Student Council is happy to announce the continued tradition of hosting an annual Dodgeball Tournament. The Dodgeball Tournament will include students of all ages with high school, middle school, and elementary school divisions, along with a basket drawing, bake sale, and much more. We hope that you and your family can come to support Mrs. Patzold and enjoy a night that will make a huge difference in someone’s life. Team Registrations: Elementary- 10 people per team, $20 per team Middle and High School- 7 people per team, $21 per team Teacher Teams- 7 people per team, $21 per team The entrance for this event is the front doors to the athletic lobby. Admission Cost? (non-participants) Adults: $5.00 Students (K-12): $3.00 Children (4 and Under): Free Why should you participate? The money raised will be given to Deb Patzold, a study hall supervisor at Elkhorn Middle School. The money will help her with medical costs such as gas to and from doctor’s appointments, as well as other related expenses. On July 6th, 2018, Deb Patzold was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL). She has been working as a study hall supervisor at EAMS for 12 years, but she has been a part of the district for 20 years. Deb's leukemia was found at a routine blood test. There was an inconsistency in her blood counts that her doctor wanted to test further, so she went in for another blood test the following day. It was revealed that she had APL, a rare form of leukemia. She was admitted to Froedtert Hospital the next day and began treatment. Due to the possibility of internal bleeding on the brain, her doctor had her begin chemo right away. Her chemotherapy includes arsenic, which can be highly toxic if treated in the wrong doses. During the time she was in the hospital dealing with leukemia, her heart weakened and she had open heart surgery to replace a valve. Minor complications with this procedure pushed back her arsenic treatments, which she continues today. She has undergone chemotherapy since July 2018, and is uncertain when it will be completed. Deb is currently feeling pretty well, back to work part-time, but most importantly, her smile is back. How can you help? We need as many teams as possible from EASD elementaries, the middle school, the high school, and district teachers to compete in order to make this night fun and beneficial. Register a team of students or teachers here, or listen for announcements at your school. Contact meerslea000@students.elkhorn.k12.wi.us with any questions about the event, or to register a team. If you do not wish to participate, come and support your friends, family, and community members at the tournament. There will also be concessions, a basket raffle, and a bake sale that will directly benefit Mrs. Patzold.
