Waunakee Scholarship Fund

by: Sara Bliefernicht

This year marks the 54th anniversary of the Waunakee Scholarship Fund! Since its inception in 1966, the fund has awarded $1,215,852 in scholarships to 5,715 students pursuing higher education following graduation. Last year alone, $52,455 in scholarships was awarded. This has been possible only because of the generosity of our wonderful community. As the community grows, so does our student population and the need for ongoing support of those students. The 2020 Waunakee High School graduating class consists of 317 students. It is anticipated that 85-90% of these students will attend a post-secondary education institution. As we are not able to conduct the traditional door-to-door drive this year, participating students will be reaching out to the Waunakee Community the week of May 11-17 through social media platforms, emails, texts, or distribution of flyers in mail slots. Donations can either be mailed in or given online. All money is collected and distributed to seniors who have participated in the drive and applied for this scholarship. If you would prefer to write a check, please make check payable to: Waunakee Scholarship Fund and mail to: Waunakee Scholarship Fund, 301 Community Drive, Waunakee WI 53597 Thank you!

2019 Snuggle Up & Read Image

2019 Snuggle Up & Read

by: LORRIE JENSEN

Our goal is to provide a tie-blanket and at least one 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 six or seven tie blankets. This will allow each of the 80 first grade students at Westside to have his/her own blanket as well as to have 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 $12 to make one 4 x 6 tie-blanket for each student. The blankets and books are delivered prior to the first graders going on their winter break so they can have a book and a blanket to snuggle up and read with. Thank you for your support of this worthwhile service project. Waunakee Intermediate School

See, touch, smell, observe, hear, LEARN. Hands on experiences are what 5th graders at Waunakee Intermediate School are able to have as they learn about rain forest animals in May in Spanish class. Watching videos of animals is fun, but nothing like the real thing right in front of you. Your donation will help bring in Noelle with her animals from Zoozort into our classroom on May 20th, 2020.
