Wildcat Boys Track & Field Donation Campaign

by: Joff Pedretti

Your donation will make it possible for the track and field to sustain the many expenses we incur to run a very large program with high-cost equipment needs. Due to big ticket items such as pole vault pits ($18,000) and high jump pits ($10,000), and many others, the average annual expense for our team is nearly $6,000 which exceeds our budget of $450 from the athletic department. Your contribution helps our diverse group of team members have what they need for practices and host meets. Thank you!

VAHS Theatre Dept 2020-21 Annual Fundraising Campaign

by: HALMINIAK LAURI

The Show Must Go On ! We are so excited to move into our performing arts center this fall as our new high school opens. We had been preparing for a year of change, but never could have imagined all of the changes that have been brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our production team has been working hard investigating alternatives to a live performance in the event that social distancing might still be in effect. There has been great enthusiasm from our fabulous students who have already been acquiring skills to audition and perform virtually. There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into producing a quality show and insuring that all students have the best possible learning experience. We are all happy to spend whatever time is necessary for them and the community. However, the monetary expense continues to increase, especially this year. We depend heavily upon funding from our generous donors and patrons. If you are able to contribute to our production costs in anyway, please do what you can. Every dollar is needed. Not only do we anticipate new expenses this year, but our ability to sell tickets will probably be limited.  Classmunity now has the option to make smaller monthly contributions if that would work better for you. Please consider donating to the theatre arts program. We can't wait to see your faces in the audience from our new stage!

Wildcat Family Assistance Fund (in light of COVID-19)

by: Amy Tranel

The Verona Area School District is committed to ensuring that ALL students have equitable opportunities. This means having access to the general school education they deserve, while also being able to participate in curricular and non-curricular school activities, and even more importantly, having access to BASIC LIFE NECESSITIES! With our current COVID-19 crisis, support is needed NOW more than ever for our Wildcat Family of more than 6,000 students! For this reason, the district continues to offer its Wildcat Family Assistance Fund, and is enhancing efforts during our school closures and virtual learning unveiling, by offering this online giving option. As an example: Your simple $25 donation would cover the cost of: •approximately 25 breakfast bags of food or 15 bags of lunch that we are handing out to families during our school closures •cab fare to help transport a needed WiFi hotspot to a family who does not have internet access for our virtual learning efforts •essential personal hygiene products for a homeless family Your $50 donation could help pay for: •medications for emergency educational needs •multiple pieces of essential clothing for a homeless family Your $75 donation could help purchase: •a set of school supplies for an elementary student to utilize at home throughout our virtual learning experience during school closures •a week’s worth of essential food for a homeless family Your $100 can help purchase: •additional technology needs for the district as they unveil virtual learning For the 2020-2021 school year, money in this fund will be directed to family and student needs such as transportation, school supplies, emergency educational medications, family emergencies (house fire, flooding, death, etc.) and other school-related needs so all our students have equitable opportunities. Our goal is to raise $10,000 as we seek our community’s help in raising money for this important work. Thank you for your commitment to our students!

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.

Latin America Travel Experience Image

Latin America Travel Experience

by: SIMONINI ANTHONY

Verona Area High School is excited to announce its 2021 trip to Puerto Rico! This tour is rich is culture, history, tradition, and excitement for students at Verona Area High School. Students will be able to see amazing sights such as El Yunque: the only rainforest in North America, Bioluminescent bays and learn about the amazing history of the island in Old San Juan. Most of all, students are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of Latin America and build a great appreciation for the island. All travel comes with some monetary burdens, and for many of our students, cost can be a barrier to travel. We are committed to equity at Verona Area School District and attempting to find ways to help fund travel for all students is imperative in our pursuit of equity. This trip is important to students as you can see below: “It would mean a lot to me to be able to go and experience something so beautiful and to be able to learn more about the Puerto Rican culture through this experience.” “I want to experience my culture again with my classmates and friends, and it will make me happy to learn the parts of my culture that I’ve never seen.” “It has always been a dream of mine to travel the world and experience new places and this trip is such a good thing to have coming from school.” “I have always had dreams about going out around the world to different places and learning new things.” These are just some of the many reasons that students at Verona Area High School want to travel with the Latin America Area Studies trip to Puerto Rico in the Spring of 2021! We are asking for donations in any amount that will be applied directly to student travel accounts based on need. We hope to provide as many partial scholarships as possible so that all students have the opportunity to travel on this trip! Thank you so much for your support!

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 December 5-8, 2019 our team will attend the Chicago International Model United Nations (CIMUN) conference and on February 6-9, 2020 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 approximately $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 support. 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 Morgan Moll and Megan Diller Co-Presidents, VAHS Model United Nations

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!

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), 50+ Exploration Academy students attended the ski trip to Tyrol Basin. The trip was, once again, 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 continue to make this trip a yearly occurrence. While we get a great deal from the folks at Tyrol Basin, when multiplied by nearly 50 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.
