Festival Of Bands Donation Drive

by: Guy Gregg

Thank you for caring about the OCFSD Band Program & visiting our Classmunity! It is with great optimistic spirit that we celebrate the eventual return of Festival of Bands. Since we always pride ourselves on not charging admission to see your students, we rely on fundraisers like the Festival of Bands Bake Sale to help supplement the budget for the Elementary, Middle and High School Band Programs. We now will have had to cancel the last TWO Festival of Bands which has resulted in a loss of funds for all band programs! We also have had to use our budget for many unexpected things this year including PPE, Technology, Equipment, Instruments, and Lessons. Covid-19 has also contributed to very necessary fundraising disappearing since March, like Marching Band Competitions, Fiserv Forum Stands, and public events. Please enjoy our Virtual FOB MARATHON (9:30am - 7pm) & CLASS OF 2021 FOB CONCERT (7pm) on Saturday January 16th, and please consider donating - as we hope to have $10,000 to split equally between the entire 5-12 OCFSD Band Program. Please remember that the % processing fee should be included in your donation. Thank you so much! https://youtu.be/ifNV8_mIGCI

Knights Racing Land Speed Record Attempt

by: Chad Hanebrink

Here at Knights Racing, we are never truly happy with just doing what everyone else is doing. We are already the only BUILD team that does two complete bike builds in a single school year, what else can we do? How about being the only BUILD team that is also building a Land Speed Racer? You read that right, we want our kids to go into the record books with a bike that they built, but we need your help. Going fast, as simple as that may seem, is not cheap. We need help getting to 121 MPH! Now is your chance to be a part of history. Simply click that donate button and help us get to the desert!

FIRST LEGO League Carolinas Invitational

by: Liz Reck

Oak Creek-Franklin West Middle School’s 8th Grade FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Team 38663 Outrageous Creators has earned the honor of representing Wisconsin at the Carolinas Open Invitational robotics tournament in Myrtle Beach, SC, May 6 - May 9. The 48 team international competition will feature teams from 28 states and 16 countries. Three hundred sixty-one teams competed in the FLL City Shaper challenge in Wisconsin this year, progressing through a series of regional and sectional qualifying tournaments, with the top 36 teams advancing to the state championship. Each FLL team designed, built, and programmed a fully autonomous LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot to compete in the robot game and also worked to identify a problem in their community, develop a unique problem solution, and craft a creative presentation to showcase their work. Team 38663 Outrageous Creators identified a problem with a lack of safe, inclusive play space at Oak Creek middle schools and worked with local and national experts to create a design for an all-inclusive sensory playground at East Middle School. The team shared their ideas with school district administrators, school board members, and members of the Oak Creek community. Whether they are designing the robot, developing their project, mentoring younger FLL students at West, or competing at an event, Team 38663 Outrageous Creators always keeps the FLL core values of inclusion, innovation, impact, discovery, teamwork and fun at the heart of everything they do. Team 38663 Outrageous Creators is raising funds for the four-day trip to Myrtle Beach. We estimate that the team will need approximately $10,000 to send students, coaches, and chaperones to the event. Costs include tournament registration, airfare, lodging, food, team shirts and project supplies. Please help the Outrageous Creators participate in a once-in-a-lifetime educational opportunity that they will remember forever.

Community Worker Appreciation Project Image

Community Worker Appreciation Project

by: Coryn Bauer

Hello, everyone! We are the 2nd grade teachers at Cedar Hills, Ms. Bauer, Mrs. Breznik and Ms. Weisbrod, and we are extremely excited to begin this project. Students in 2nd grade learn all about workers in our community, including Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Teachers, Public Works employees, Librarians, Postal Workers, and City Hall employees. Through our learning, our students discover the essential role community workers have in making Oak Creek a remarkable city. Our students want to thank our community workers for their hard work and commitment. We would like our students to make yard signs for departments in our community. Students will plan, design, and create a sign that shows gratitude for a department like police officers or fire fighters. Then, our students' designs will be professionally printed on corrugated plastic yard signs by a local business. Finally, we will take a field trip to each department in Oak Creek to hand deliver, meet the workers, and display our signs in front of their buildings for the city to see! This campaign makes students' yard signs 'come to life' by getting them professionally printed in order to present and display them outside at the various departments. This project empowers our students to make a difference and to be a positive force in our community. Thank you for supporting this incredible learning experience for our amazing group of 2nd graders!!
