Waunakee Area Public Arts Committee Sculpture Campaign

by: WCSD Classmunity Administrator

How do we celebrate the Waunakee Community School District's accomplishment of being on the leading edge academically and performing above state and national averages for generations? Would you like to be a part of symbolically honoring all Waunakee Community School District (WCSD) teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication in making WCSD one of the state's top school districts? Would you like to help create a legacy of "excellence in education" that has significantly benefited our community's children/families, growth and economy? In researching other communities around the world, we, the Waunakee Area Public Arts Committee, along with active and retired business leaders, educators and volunteers have come together to ask for your support in commissioning a major art work/sculpture to be placed at the Waunakee High School Southwest plaza entrance. The WCSD Board has approved the site. This is a location that thousands of families and residents in the school district and community pass, annually, attending school and community events and meetings. It is, of course, the high school students' daily path. The sculpture's theme is to celebrate teachers/staff and education excellence in WCSD. It may consist of bronze, metal, stone, etc., and will include LED or other light features. It will be a daily dedication for decades to come. Advised by CODAworx and art and sculpture professors at the UW- Madison, we have completed a national request for qualification and selected three sculptor artist finalists. These artists were recently interviewed and visited Waunakee. They will submit their final proposals by the end of November 2017. The finalists will consider seven conceptual ideas drafted by Waunakee High School advanced art workshop students. Students (art, English, engineering, marketing, economics, horticulture, Innovation Center) and teachers will interact with the finalist artist during on-site visits and via social media. There will be field trips to any local company fabricators. Working with a world class sculptor artist will be life transforming for some students. Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the project, inclusive of site work. We are at half of our goal with pledges and monies received. If you would like to donate to this fund, go to the WCSD's crowd funding site www.classmunity. com/waunakeewi and become part of preserving our excellence in education legacy and honoring the people that have helped make this community a place our great grandparents are proud of and our great grandchildren will benefit and enjoy. Thank you for your time, consideration and support! We hope your support will bring you much joy, reward and satisfaction, now, and for years to come.

Gymnastics Fundraising Campaign

by: Aaron May

Thank you for checking out our page! We are the combined high school gymnastics team for Waunakee and DeForest, and we are raising money for a new spring floor and carpet as well as two new balance beams. In addition to this fundraiser, we raise money by offering services throughout the year. Our team cleans up the football stadium following home football games, participates in wreath sales. Our gymnastics families help out by managing the concessions during our Youth Night. The Waunakee-DeForest gymnastics family also runs a summer gymnastics camp for kids ranging in age from 5 to 18. Your donation will not only provide the team with an equipment setup that offers added safety, it will also benefit the Waunakee and DeForest communities by allowing our gymnastics family to extend the increased safety advantages of the new floor setup and beams to our youth program.

Build On Tradition

by: Janice Ross

The Homerun Club is starting a Capital Campaign to fund much needed improvements to the Varsity and Junior Varsity baseball fields at the High School with the goal of bettering the overall experience for the players, coaches and fans. Our goal is to raise $225,000 for all of the improvements, which would be completed in two phases: Phase 1: Completed in 2018, Budgeted at $85,000. *DUGOUTS-The existing Varsity field dugouts are far too small for a typical roster size and coaching staff at the Varsity Level. The JV field currently doesn't have any dugouts, therefore the JV players and coaches are left out in the open during bad weather events. *PROTECTIVE FENCE CAPS- Currently both fields have protective fence caps installed along the top of the outfield fences. Additional protective fence caps need to be added along the top of the foul line fencing to help prevent injury to a player reaching over to make a catch. Phase 2: Completed during Fall 2018 -Winter 2019, Budgeted at $140,000. *JV FIELD BATTING CAGE- The JV field has no batting cage which limits the JV coaching staffs ability to conduct high quality practices and provide good pregame warm-up. *JV FIELD BULLPENS - There are no bullpens on the JV field which requires pitchers to warm up without a pitching mound in foul territory during games. The new bullpens will improve the in-game experience and safety of our players, they will also improve the quality of practices and pregame warm-ups. *VARSITY FIELD BATTER'S EYE SCREENING - There is no batter's eye background on the varsity field, therefore the background for a hitter above the outfield fence is the High School building, which is lighter in color making it more difficult for a hitter to see the baseball. *JV FIELD OUTFIELD FENCE REINFORCING AND WIND SCREEN - The JV field does not have a wind screen because the outfield fencing isn't strong enough to withstand strong winds if a windscreen is installed. *NEW CONCESSIONS AREA IN THE LOWER LEVEL OF THE PRESS BOX - Currently concessions are organized and served just adjacent to the press box using portable tables. The indoor area would greatly improve the ability of volunteers to organize and serve concessions especially during bad weather. *NEW SCOREBOARDS FOR BOTH THE VARSITY AND JV FIELDS - The existing scoreboards provide minimal information for players, coaches and fans. *VARSITY FIELD UPGRADED SOUND SYSTEM - The existing sound system is dated and somewhat difficult to hear and understand. In addition to the in-season games, the tournaments and games hosted by The Homerun Club throughout the spring and summer seasons bring hundreds of out of town guests into Waunakee. While at the games, these people shop and eat at the local businesses and become familiar with our community. The Homerun Club is excited to share multiple opportunities for you to help with our Capital Campaign. We hope to raise approximately $110,000. through our Pennant Program; approximately $30,000. through Scoreboard advertising; and the remaining $85,000. through personal donations. Each of these opportunities will allow community members and businesses to show your support for the Waunakee baseball team, High School athletics, and to the continued growth and positive development of our Village. The Homerun Club thanks you in advance for your generosity and dedication to our great community and it's continued efforts to Build On Tradition.

UPDATE!!!!! Help us fill our wall!!! The Waunakee Innovation Center is a partnership between the Waunakee Community School District and the Waunakee Area Education Foundation. This resource space allows students and community members to explore innovation, ingenuity, and creativity through technology. Visitors to the Innovation Center will be able explore the integration of technology through collaborative projects and teamwork. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (also known as STEAM) education represents a large portion of our students and the new frontier of exploration. The Innovation Center offers a unique space where STEAM education can experienced by students and community. Our students are able to grow their STEAM skills through courses offered at Waunakee Community High School and then expand those skills in the Innovation Center. This space will soon offer a chance for community education classes to help introduce community members to new technologies becoming more prevalent in traditional areas. Now that we are set up we are working on opening up the Innovation Center members of the community to use for work on projects, explore hobbies and learn new skills but we need your help. We are constantly looking support in terms of financial and material donations. This campaign will allow us to: -Purchase cutting edge equipment and technology to facilitate exploration of innovative ideas -Allow district students and the community access to equipment not normally available. -Implement new curriculum offerings. -Create a "YES" space for all district wide curricular areas to collaborate in. -Host a wide variety of programming including educational programs, summer camps and other events for all Waunakee community members. -Build a community landmark. As part of this fundraising campaign we will also be finishing our donation wall that outside the Innovation Center is an integral part of the design of this space. On the right side of this page you will see a rewards section with more details on this wall. We will currently be offering a half price campaign for families to become part of the Innovation Center story. We are currently offering our 200.00 tile for 100.00 in order to finish the donor wall. To make a donation different than the predetermined amount simply click the "other" button and enter the amount you would like to donate. You may also choose to set up a recurring donation if you would like. Students, teachers and community members all benefit from this space because users are able to chase their dreams and explore their ideas without fear using innovative technology and collaborating with some of the brightest minds in Waunakee and the world. The Innovation Center is a focal point that the community can be proud of.

WCSD Marching Percussion Renewal

by: JAMES SERCOMBE

The purpose of this campaign is to replace and refurbish our marching percussion equipment for Waunakee Community Middle and High School. Our percussion instruments are used throughout the year and are shared between the High School in the summer and fall, and Middle School in the spring. Many of our instruments are in disrepair and require continual maintenance to be functional. We are hoping to purchase more light-weight equipment that will be easier to carry, especially for our Middle School students. This campaign will replace our primary set of marching snares, quad toms and bass drums. We would be able to replace our oldest equipment, and refurbish our current equipment for extended use with our increasing enrollment. For more information about this campaign, and the current state of our marching percussion, please visit our Music Boosters website at https://sites.google.com/waunakee.k12.wi.us/waunakeemusicboosters/marchingpercussionrenewal Donations by check be made payable to WCSD and delivered to the Waunakee High School main office.

Waunakee Dance Team

by: Aaron May

The Waunakee High School Varsity Dance team provides dancers the opportunity learn various dance routines to compete for their high school in conference, state and national dance competitions. In addition to competition, the Varsity Dance team performs dance routines and sidelines at various Waunakee High School athletic and student events. They also perform at Waunakee Community Events, such as the Waunafest Parade. Each year the dance team hosts two dance clinics, teaching dance routines to aspiring young dancers in our community and giving those young dancers the chance to perform in front of a hometown crowd at a high school sporting event. The Waunakee High School Varsity Dance team is currently responsible for 100% of their operating fees. Funds raised will be used to pay for competition fees and costuming fees, as well as ancillary costs. We are very pleased to announce that prior year fundraising efforts have finally resulted in the installation of a padded marley dance floor, moving our dancers off of a concrete dance surface, hopefully reducing dance related injuries. This dance floor was important for the health of the dancers, but has resulted in a depletion of our funds. Please consider supporting your Waunakee High School Varsity Dance team, so that we can continue to provide an opportunity for area dancers to represent the Waunakee Warriors.

Warrior Stadium Image

Warrior Stadium

by: WCSD Classmunity Administrator

The Renew, Expand, Tradition (RET) community capital campaign is a partnership between the Waunakee Community School District and the Waunakee Area Education Foundation to include synthetic turf and LED lighting in the renewal of "Warrior Stadium". The district has allocated funds to reshape the crown of the field, improve drainage, replace the existing turf, upgrade lighting and replace the scoreboard. The additional cost to include synthetic turf and LED lighting is approximately $900,000 which includes 1/2 the subsequent cost to replace the turf at the end of it useful life (10 to 12 years). Natural turf is limited to 75 events or games per calendar year to maintain a usable surface. This limits the stadium's use to fall football events only as approximately 50 home scrimmages and games, for grades 7 through 12 leave the turf in disrepair. Synthetic turf can handle over 250 events per year, opening the stadium for use in the spring and summer for the more than 1000 soccer players and 300+ lacrosse players in our community. Physical education classes, band, lacrosse and others will be able to use the turf ILO sharing the gym when weather and wet natural turf would otherwise force them inside. Warrior Stadium will be a host site for non-Waunakee playoff games, in multiple sports, generating revenue for local businesses before and after these events. Booster clubs will generate profits through concessions during the activities. The school district will collect rental revenue for hosting. Upgrades to the stadium complement our excellent schools and parks in Waunakee. Visitors will take time to run errands and or shop locally. 1300 additional local youth will have access to a facility that is underused due to limitations of the natural turf.

Prairie Stomp Image

Prairie Stomp

by: Susan Brown, PTO

The Prairie Stomp is a school wide welcome back activity that serves as the major fundraiser for Prairie Elementary School. The 2017 Stomp will be on Friday, September 29th, with the rain date on October 6th. This approach to fundraising avoids selling products and directs ALL profits (less Stomp expenses) back to the school by encouraging students to get pledges and run laps to raise money for the PTO programming. Such programs include: technology purchases (Chromebooks, iPad’s, J-Touch screens, etc.), field trip opportunities, assemblies, birthday books and new playground equipment. Students are encouraged to collect either a flat donation or per lap pledge. On the event day, students run/walk a looped track on the school field for 20 minutes. The students gain an appreciation of teamwork, a sense of strong school unity, and the importance of being healthy and exercising all while having fun with their fellow classmates. The PTO provides each child with a FREE Prairie Stomp t-shirt and a healthy snack on the event day. The students also work together, as a school, to achieve school wide fundraising goals and earn prizes: Level 1 ($20,000): Miller and Mike Comedy Show (millerandmike.com) Level 2 ($25,000): PJ/Movie Day at Performing Arts Center at the High School Level 3 ($30,000): Principal/Associate Principal on the roof; Plus Sno-Cones In addition to the school wide fundraising goals, there are two running goals: 1. Individual:The top lap running boy(s) and girl(s) in each grade level will receive a special recognition award for their strong performance. 2. Classroom: The classroom within each grade level with the highest average lap per student will earn an extra recess equipped with a bouncy house. We want everyone to know that the success of this event is not possible without your support and the tremendous efforts of perseverance, determination, and will-power of each student to do their very best. We will celebrate the collective effort of every student! Thank you for supporting Prairie in such a positive way. As a sponsor, you can donate a set amount (flat donation) prior to the event. If you prefer to make a per lap donation, we ask that you wait to enter your donation until after the event. The student you are pledging will let you know after the event how many laps he/she completed so you may calculate the total amount to be donated. REMEMBER, Prairie PTO is a 501(3)c organization and any donation you make to the Prairie Stomp is tax-deductible. Donations can be made anytime beginning August 15, 2017 through October 13th, 2017. We cannot have a successful event without our amazing volunteers! You can sign up to help out on the day of the Stomp through the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0b45a5a62da0f94-2ndannual If you’re unable to volunteer, we still encourage you to stop by, watch and cheer on your student.

We are excited to see how many veterans we can honor as well as how much we can donate to Badger Honor Flight.

Snuggle Up and Read

by: PAUL MILLER

Our goal is to provide a tie-blanket and a book for each first grader at Westside Elementary School in Sun Prairie. Westside is a community school that relies on help from its neighborhoods to help make a difference in the lives of several children that have families that may struggle from time to time. We’d like to remind and share with these first graders the joy found in reading; especially when snuggling into a comfy blanket. Each fifth grade homeroom will be making seven or eight tie blankets. This will allow each of the 97 first grade students at Westside to have his/her own blanket and at least one book. We will work in homerooms to make the blankets, but we need some help in purchasing material for the blankets. It costs about $15 to make one 4 x 6 tie-blanket as well as provide at least one book for each student. Thank you for your support of this worthwhile service project. Waunakee Intermediate School
