Windy City Cultural Adventure

by: Rita Mortenson

This field trip would allow for students and staff to develop authentic relationships and learn about a variety of cultures beyond the classroom walls. Funding from this grant would be one way to develop authentic relationships and learn about the cultures of our students, staff and community members. Students will be able to have a cultural experience in a city that provides opportunities that are not currently available locally. This field trip opportunity would provide an experience that students on their own might not otherwise have. It will not only be a great learning opportunity, but also one to build and develop relationships. https://www.donorschoose.org/project/windy-city-cultural-adventure/4090849/?utm_source=dc&utm_medium=page&utm_campaign=ifproject&utm_term=teacher_2845380&rf=page-dc-2019-05-ifproject-teacher_2845380&challengeid=20562084

Upham Woods 6th grade Outdoor Experience

by: WILBRICHT KRISTEN

Upham Woods is a year-round environmental education center that offers young people an exciting view into the natural world. Its goal is to provide a learning environment where young people gain first-hand experiences in the natural sciences, group living, citizenship and outdoor education. Each year expenses increase and each year we have scholarship requests consistently in excess of $1000. This project aligns with the district mission of EVERY student MUST be successful by allowing ALL students a shared outdoor experience. We find this shared experience bonds our middle schools early in their 6th grade year. This bonds are continued to be built upon through the three year at SOMS. This project expands the traditional classroom learning for all students. Something special happens as the group of students and chaperones rides the bus, hikes all over camp, participating in over twelve hours of outdoor activities, eats meals together family style, and sleeps in cabins.

Send VAHS Model UN to Conference!

by: Lynn Vilker

We are raising money for the Verona Area High School’s Model United Nations (VAHS MUN) team. VAHS MUN is an award-winning Model United Nations team ranked in the top 150 Model UN teams in the country and the only team from WI to receive this recognition. Through participation in interactive simulations, our team provides students at VAHS with the opportunity to learn about the United Nations and world affairs, share their opinions with students from around the world, and become active global citizens. As a member of this team we learn the skills of public speaking, debate, research, writing, and building consensus. On November 29th-December 2nd, 2018 our team will attend the Chicago International Model United Nations (CIMUN) conference and on February 7-10th, 2019 our team will attend the Model UN of the University of Chicago (MUNUC) in Chicago, IL. These conferences provide a unique chance for us to interact with ~4500 fellow Model UN delegates from around the world. We are excited about returning to CIMUN and MUNUC again this year after winning many awards last year. However, these trips will cost us about US$800 per student in travel, hotel, and conference costs to attend, an amount not all of our members can afford to pay. In order to allow us to participate, we are seeking your sponsorship. In a globalized world, international education is critical to fostering today’s citizens and tomorrow’s leaders. With the opportunity to actively debate international problems and interact with fellow students from around the world, we believe that these conferences will be a uniquely valuable educational experience. Any support you could provide would be immensely appreciated. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Lynn Vilker, VAHS MUN Advisor Elyse Mancilla and Madelyn Vilker Head Delegates, VAHS Model United Nations

VAHS Food Pantry

by: KNOLL JASON

Wildcats United (formerly VeronaAid) is a student-led charity at VAHS. This year, we are establishing a food pantry at the high school to help students in need. The plan as of now is to give students food on Fridays to take home for the weekend. Once everything is running smoothly, we might expand that to include 1-2 days a week. All funds received from this campaign will go toward buying food to stock our shelves. To give you an idea of how much food costs, we spent $316 and bought 192 pounds of food from Miller's in Verona. Thank you for helping us address food insecurity and hunger in our district.

Senior Grad Ads in the Final Issue of the Cat's Eye Image

Senior Grad Ads in the Final Issue of the Cat's Eye

by: HOGAN GWENDOLYN

In order raise the funds for to pay for the final issues of the Cat's Eye student newspaper, newspaper staff members will be selling space in the final issue to seniors as "Grad Ad" space. They can be purchased by family or parents for their student, by the student themselves, or by friends to give each other shout outs. Grad ads begin at $10 and price goes up with more space. For a 1/4 page sized Grad ad, the price is $40, as it is 4x the space of a $10 ad. We are choosing to do this rather than clog up our final issues with advertisements from businesses as students will be more interested in reading through the Grad Ads than they would in viewing an overabundance of advertisements. It will also give students and staff members the unique challenge of designing something aesthetically pleasing to be displayed in the newspaper. Additionally, we know that grad ad space was sold out for the yearbook, so this will give students another opportunity to have themselves and their friends immortalized in a VAHS publication! When you purchase a grad ad and your space is confirmed, please email the picture and message you want featured to: catseyegradads@gmail.com. Selling for the grad ads will occur over announcements, during lunches throughout April, during class, and online via email. We will do outreach to the community via word of mouth, announcements, emails, and the newsletter. We will sell ads until we have raised all the money we need for the year/our space sells out!

Erase VASD School Lunch Debt! Image

Erase VASD School Lunch Debt!

by: MAGLI CINDRA

All students depend on a nutritious lunch to help them through their school day. According to the 2018 Hunger Task Force report, over 29% of VASD students qualify for free and reduced meals at school. If a child is unable to pay for their meal, a debt tally is started and families are invoiced to collect the debt. This fundraiser seeks to eliminate or reduce that debt and burden on some of our most vulnerable families. During this holiday season, please consider a donation! This page has been created by Sarah Gaskell, a community member and VASD parent and supporter.

2nd Annual Exploration Academy Ski Trip Fundraiser Image

2nd Annual Exploration Academy Ski Trip Fundraiser

by: BRUSS MATTHEW

This fundraiser is in support of the 2nd Annual Exploration Academy Ski Trip. Last year (2018), 60+ Exploration Academy students attended a ski trip to Tyrol Basin. The trip was a huge success. Students were raving about it for weeks and have been eagerly awaiting this year's trip. Advisors were amazed at the grit and perseverance students demonstrated in learning to ski and snowboard. Students were focussed and living in the moment, outside and away from technology. In addition, the peer support that more experienced students provided was extraordinary. This trip embodies so many of the characteristics that makes Exploration Academy great, we would like to make this trip a yearly occurrence. While we get a great deal from the folks at Tyrol Basin, when multiplied by nearly 80 students the costs can be significant. We are hoping to raise $1500 to cover the costs of bussing, lift tickets and rental equipment (for those who need it) for all students in EA.
