About this fundraiser We don’t know about you, but we’re feeling 2023!! The Waunakee Middle School Dance Team is a newer extra curricular activity offered to 7th and 8th graders. We had our first season in 2019 with 12 dancers! Sadly we didn't have a season in 2020 due to Covid-19, but we made a come-back in 2021 with a team of 17. This year we’ve had a lot of interest- we’ve seen about 17 new faces and have 14 potential returners. It’s very exciting to see a desire for our program and offer an activity where middle schoolers can express themselves, make new friends, be part of a team, and build confidence. We welcome students that love to dance or want to learn how to dance. Throughout our season we'll learn a hip-hop and pom routine, work on strength and flexibility, as well as dance tricks and skills. The team will showcase their hard work by performing at local basketball games and competitions across WI. We're lucky to have a strong high school dance team that will offer mentorship and encouragement to our dancers along the way. This program will also help prepare dancers that are interested in trying out for the high school team. As our team size increases, so do our overall expenses. We are raising funds to cover the cost of competition fees, poms, dance uniforms, team bonding events, and an end-of-season celebration for all. Fundraising for these team costs offsets the team fees and we truly want to keep our program accessible for everyone! To reflect our high hopes for a great season this year, we’ve set a goal of raising $2,023. Please consider donating to our fun online fundraiser. Go Warriors! ~Coach K (Kristina Maher) ~Coach P (Petra Mallon) Who is managing the campaign? Kristina Maher

Please join us Tuesday, May 16th from 4-7 p.m. for the Heritage Elementary Art Show! We invite you to join your little artist/s as they guide you through the halls of Heritage Elementary showcasing their masterpieces. There will also be an opportunity to take a fun family photo in our art themed photo booth and students will receive a small gift as they depart the show. Their one-of-a-kind original artwork will hopefully inspire you to make a donation to Heritage FTO. The funds raised will help support the art department as well as other efforts like school events, teacher appreciation, musical instruments, class trips, supplies, etc. While their creations are "free of charge", donations are encouraged but completely optional. Their artwork will be making its way home to decorate your refrigerators and walls either way! Our goal is to raise $6,000. We have provided some fun rewards if we reach certain benchmarks. If we raise $3,000, each class will get a popcorn party. If we reach $5,000, the FTO will be renting additional bounce houses for Field Day. Thank you for your support of Heritage Elementary and the FTO. We hope you can join us and leave inspired and proud of your creative children!
