Mental Health Matters at MHS

by: Beth Canfield

We are hoping to secure funds to support the MHS Hope Squad (a peer to peer suicide prevention program) as well as be able to train all McFarland High School staff in suicide prevention. With these funds, our Hope Squad will be able to attend regional and national trainings and events, and be able to bring the knowledge and resources back to MHS. The Hope Squad will also be able to support suicide prevention and mental health awareness events both at our school and in the community. We want to end the stigma around mental health & make sure no Spartan feels they are on their own. Additionally, funds will also be spent on mental health resources for MHS students to utilize while at school. These include: anxiety and depression workbooks, sensory tools, as well as mental health and calming Ipad apps.

Drift with Us! Image

Drift with Us!

by: Traci Tucker

Every May, the Driftwood Creative Arts Anthology club at McFarland High School publishes an anthology of student creative work. Over the course of the school year, students submit poetry, short stories, personal essays, song lyrics, paintings, photography, drawings, and even doodles! The club collects, reviews, edits, and then designs the anthology for publication. This will be Driftwood's 17th year of publication. Driftwood Club members have also attended (and won awards at!) events such as the UW-Whitewater Creative Writing Festival as well as submitting to writing contests such as the Bennington College Young Writer's Awards and the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets annual student contest. However, publishing this unique, award-winning anthology and giving club members these amazing opportunities, comes at a cost. We are hoping to find community leaders who will support literacy and the arts at McFarland High School by becoming a Driftwood sponsor. There are 3 levels of support for Driftwood listed in the Rewards section of our campaign. Individual Sponsors and/or companies will be listed under our Driftwood Sponsors page at the beginning of the anthology and have the opportunity to include an advertisement for their company within the anthology. Any donation, large or small, is greatly appreciated. Happy Reading! - The Driftwood Staff Follow us on Instagram! @mcfdriftwood Visit our Website: https://sites.google.com/mcfsd.org/driftwood

by: LINDY WIESMANN

The Memory Project is a charitable nonprofit organization that invites art students, and solo artists to help cultivate global kindness by creating portraits for children around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as violence, war, extreme poverty, neglect, and/or loss of parents.

Since 2004 the Memory Project has created more than 130,000 portraits for children in 47 countries. I am honored to announce that our very own McFarland Art Students will be crafting portraits for the Memory Project! In order to be involved in the program there is a small Classmunity fundraiser fee plus the cost of $15 for each portrait.

Classroom Library: Diversity Project

by: Marc Joyce

The world is changing every day. I want our classroom libraries to change along with it. Books are a great way to open up doors for conversations and supporting a dialogue of what is happening in the world. Books offer a way for students to feel like they matter and are represented in their classroom. Books also offer insight into another person's worldview. It gives them a way to learn about their classmates in a different way. Through the pandemic, we prepared book bags for the students to pick up each week so they could keep reading even though they weren't in school. This is a great way for not only our class to have meaningful discussions, but homes in our community as well. Having these diverse options can truly benefit our small community.

It Takes A Village to Educate: Together With Tanongou

by: ANGELA BAZAN

The World Geography class at McFarland High School has been learning about the village of Tanongou, in Benin, Africa. We are working to raise $3000 to support education in the village by sponsoring scholarships for students to attend school and learn a skill. We are also hoping to help fund the cost of birth certificates so students may continue their education. In Benin, students must take a test after 6th grade to be admitted to the next level. In order to take the test, they need a birth certificate, or they are not allowed to continue their education. As many are born in the village, a birth certificate is costly to obtain and travel to the city is difficult. We know that education is the key to success, and we are grateful for the education that we have. Please help us to spread that knowledge around the world- It truly takes a village to help another!

We Can Read It!

by: MARIA MARKING

I remember years ago, sitting on a classroom carpet with my kindergarten teacher, when it happened. My teacher had taught us strategies, tips and tricks and with her guidance and support from home, suddenly reading "clicked" for me! There on that carpet my strategies for reading came to life! I couldn't wait to get home to show my family! I am inspired by Kelly Livingston's "Bringing Families Together with Books and More!" project, and I know that her proposal could benefit the children of my kindergarten families! Children need so much exposure to text and most importantly text they are able to read fluently and independently. This means that having the appropriate books available for our young learners and their families is so important! Throughout the school year, I have sent home leveled book bags with each of my kindergarten readers! The books are read with families in the evening and the bags and books come back the next day. We have certainly worked hard to "grow readers"! This upcoming school year I will be adding a new component to our bags! A "Readers Response" for our kinder readers and families to reflect on what they have read. The response will be a bubblegum thought, "what stuck with you from your reading?" Was it a snap word you read? Did you find punctuation in your book? The possibilities are endless! To complete this family activity, it is so necessary to have the books they need to share available at the level they are independently reading at. I am looking to secure funds to add to my limited collection of books meeting readers at a more accelerated level. These students and I work on higher level comprehension strategies and word study. I would love to be able to provide my students with more of a selection to share how much they have "grown" as readers with their families!

Stand with Buffalo's African American Community

by: Brian Ward

On Saturday, May 14th, a self-described white supremacist drove 200 miles to Buffalo, New York to shoot open-fire in a supermarket in a historically Black neighborhood. The 18-year old killed 10 people, and injured 3. All those that were killed were African American and the federal government is investigating this as a hate crime. Currently, the supermarket is closed, and many Buffalo citizens now have to travel far to access a grocery store. For more information check PBS's news coverage here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvLWNX_jXCk The McFarland High School Black Student Union (BSU) is holding a fundraiser to donate money to the Buffalo community. All money raised will be donated to Feed Buffalo https://www.feedbuffalo.org/ which is a Black-led organization with a passion and practice of providing healthy food access to families in need and helping get food to the community in need. They are on the frontlines providing food to this devastated community.

7th Grade Class Carnival Image

7th Grade Class Carnival

by: Kelsey Garvey

On May 3rd, we launched our first annual 7th grade Carnival! It's exciting and we know that this will be a memorable experience for our students. What We're Doing: Each 7th Grade ARRE time will be designing and planning a Carnival Booth for our last day of school. Students are earning points in class relating to parts of the ARRE Code (Achievement, Respect, Responsibility, Empathy). These points will be utilized to obtain tickets to play at the carnival booth. The more points earned, the more tickets to play at the booths, which means more opportunities to win raffle tickets for prizes. Each ARRE time is building their booth with a cause/charity in mind. We hope to raise money, which will be donated at the end of the Carnival. The booth that has the most attendees playing at their booth, will have the honor of getting the money raised donated to their cause of choice. Causes/Charities: Some of the causes/charities selected by ARRE times include: McFarland Fire and Rescue, Dane County Humane Society, Porchlight Inc., Team Seas (Ocean Conservancy), Occupaws, Team Trees, Make a Moment. Funds donated will go directly to one of the following: 1. Donation to a Charity (We hope to put 50% of our donation towards the winning charity) 2. Purchase of Booth Items (The goal of the booth is to tie into science and be as "green" as possible. If ARRE times can recycle 100% of their booth building items, they will get bonus points to play at the Carnival) 3. Purchase of raffle items (Since students are earning raffle tickets we need to buy raffle items for students so they can win prizes. We're thinking of gift cards, themed baskets, clothing/apparel etc.) Please consider donating if you are able. We would love monetary donations, raffle prize donations (gift cards, themed baskets, small toys, services etc.) Donations can be made by Tuesday May 31, 2022

2021 McFarland Choir Program/Musical Cabaret

by: Paul Gregg

This year the McFarland High School Choir Department chose to present excerpts from nine Broadway musical shows as part of a Musical Cabaret! Actors were cast from choir members who volunteered to participate. Members of the PAC Pack came in to help with lighting, sound, set construction, and logistics. The MHS Production team of Paul Gregg, Brooke Hauser, and Patrick Fernan took Director duties. Nick Nyderek, Joe Hartson, and Ben Peterson provided musical accompaniment. Costumer Bernie Friedman and Lighting Designer Mike Tallman were also on board! Students were masked and socially distanced for rehearsals, and blocking and choreography maintain this distancing to the greatest extent possible. When it came time to film with our friends at WMCF, students were either be masked or filmed individually as scenes allowed in order to keep all students and the production team safe. Our district provided approved "clearmasks" which we painted to match students' skin tones. The project was daunting, and in a year where so little seemed possible this grew into so much! Even though the annual Cabaret is the choir's biggest fundraiser, Mr. Gregg decided this would be a presentation made available to as many as possible. The budget came to about half our usual musical budget, and we are relying on the donations of our community and supporters to help us meet the costs and (hopefully) provide some fundraising for the choir program next year. In May the choirs will record the curricular music we've worked on all year as part of a yearlong learning plan called "Service Music". Donations will also help the choir program hold their annual fall retreat.

The Waubesa Intermediate School 5th Graders invite you to join our Youth Frontiers Kindness Retreat Field Trip as an event sponsor. This annual event is a high-energy day to give students the tools to develop empathy, promote kindness and prevent bullying. Students’ social and emotional well-being is at the core of our School’s Mission and through this event we hope to empower our students to be “everyday heroes” by using kindness to include others, to be respectful and to make your school a better place. Our goal this year is to raise $6,000 through individual donations and business sponsorships for the December 6th event. The 5th Graders are developing a T-shirt to be worn on this day, and at all school events throughout the year and are creating an opportunity to promote your company and to support the teachers and students of Waubesa Intermediate School. Please consider sponsoring the event at one of these levels.

Donations may be tax deductible. Please consult with your tax consultant. If you would like additional information on this powerful event, please contact Al Northouse at 838-4609 or by email at northoa@mcfsd.org. The deadline to sponsor this year’s event and be listed on event T-shirts is October 31st. Excerpts from Student Reflections “I am a fifth-grade student at Waubesa in intermediate school I recently participated in a kindness retreat. I had so much fun at the kindness retreat. I think we should have the kindness retreat every year at waubesa intermediate in 5th grade because it teaches you important lessons, it is lots of fun and that you get to share what you appreciate or feel bad for doing something wrong. Also the kindness retreat is all about being more kind to each other, also be more open also and doing what is right.” “Another reason Waubesa Intermediate School should continue to have Kindness Retreats is because they teach students how to handle situations like bullying. For example, at the the Kindness Retreat they taught us fifth graders about I.C.I. (Interrupt, Compliment, Invite away). I.C.I helps kids on what to do if they see someone in need of a hero even without having to say anything to the bully. Also, Youth Frontiers taught us about the Kindness Boomerang. The Kindness Boomerang is all about paying it forward.” “One reason we should keep doing the Kindness Retreat is because we work with people we don’t normally work with. For example, there wasn’t anyone in my group that I normally worked with and that shows that they put us in groups without many of our friends. Even though we weren’t really friends we still had a lot of fun and we were all kind to each other and we worked well together.“ “One reason I want the 5th graders next year to experience this is, it made our whole 5th grade kinder! People used to tease each other and call other people names, now, some people didn’t learn their lessons and they still do this, but the kindness retreat made most of us more kind. For example, more high fives are going around, more compliments, and more smiles.” Thank you for your donations, Corey S., Alan N. and WIS's 5th Grade Team

Food insecurity impacts 1 in 5 families in Dane County. Our village has diligently supported the efforts of the McFarland Food Pantry, but the summer months create an increase in usage by families with school aged children. This project would provide nutrition support for 20-25 students who attend Summer School during 5 weeks in June/July. Students would be confidentially invited through referrals from CEPS/WIS guidance staff and social workers. Students would be enrolled in Summer School classes over the course of the 5 week program offerings. Each morning upon arrival for classes, students would check in with office staff at WIS to pick up their "Snack Pack". Each pack would contain a breakfast item, a beverage (milk or fruit juice), a sandwich or other protein item, a snack, fruit and a small treat (cookie, fruit snacks, etc.). This pack would be created to sustain students for 2 meals a day. Additional funding available will go towards the creation of supplemental food packs to be distributed at the end of the summer school session.

It's Electric: Light Up Tanongou!

by: ANGELA BAZAN

The World Geography Class at McFarland High School is working to raise money to place solar panels in the village of Tanongou- located in Benin, West Africa. While we are used to the daily luxuries that electricity provides, such as lights, cellphones, technology, and stoves for cooking, the village of Tanongou has no electricity at all. Students who go to school all day are expected to contribute to their family's survival by helping in the home and fields after school. By the time they are able to study in the evening, it is too dark, making it near impossible to do so. Tanongou is also located near the largest game preserve and natural waterfall in Africa. The ability to get tourists to come off the path and into the village would promote economic tourism and give jobs to the people of the village. Having electricity would encourage tourists to stay in the village and provide all with a better way of life. Our goal of raising $2230 would allow us to place six solar panels in the village and change the lives of the people in Tanongou forever. Please help us change the world!
