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 18th 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

Connect values student voices and helps students and MHS clubs advocate for their needs to the School Board. In the past school year, Connect has spearheaded several initiatives at the high school, including serving as the student representatives at School Board meetings and bringing attention to student concerns, spreading awareness about marginalized and underserved groups, and co-planning a voter information and voter registration drive for seniors for the April election. Connect is excited to be hosting its first community-centered event!
