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

Waunakee Intermediate School is honored to present all of our families the opportunity to pay tribute to veterans while also having the opportunity to contribute to the Badger Honor Flight program. All funds raised will go toward the Badger Honor Flight program which has historically taken veterans from World War II, The Korean War, and now The Vietnam War to Washington D.C. to visit several sites including the memorials honoring the brave men and women that unselfishly served our country. Our veterans are deserving of our thanks and appreciation for their service to our country. We are excited to see how many veterans we can honor as well as how much we can donate to Badger Honor Flight. Please ask your Intermediate School student to decorate and write the veteran's name on a star for each veteran you would like honored to be displayed. Thank you for your donation!
