Maker's Club - Grades 3 - 6

Maker's Club exposes students to low and high tech ways of creating things. Students learn to code, use design thinking, construct, build, collaborate in teams, and 3D print. This year, students will combine all of these skills by working to design original board games -- including the boards, the cards, and even the pieces needed to play the game. Students will also work through the exploration of music, sound, and video production using Google CS First.

The elementary library's Maker's Club is now registering students. If your child is interested in Maker's Club, have him/her stop in the library to sign up today through Oct. 14th.

Banana Splits Group

Is your child a member of either a single parent or stepfamily household? Has he or she experienced family changes due to separation, divorce, or other life circumstances? If you think it would be beneficial for your child to talk about special concerns relating to family changes, consider having him or her join “Banana Splits.”

As part of our educational curriculum at Cadott Elementary, any student in grades K-6 may participate in small guidance groups. “Banana Splits” groups will be starting the week of October 28. These groups, each made up of about eight students, will meet once a week during a lunch, recess, or teacher approved time. The groups will run six to eight weeks.

The purpose of “Banana Splits” is to provide a nonjudgmental atmosphere for kids to explore positive ways of coping with change. Mrs. Manier, our school counselor, will be facilitating these groups.

If you are interested in having your child participate in “Banana Splits,” please complete and return the attached form to your child’s teacher, or email the form to manierd@cadott.k12.wi.us. -

Cross Country

What a way to end a season. Both of the middle school teams came away from the Owen-Withee Invite with the first place trophies. The evening conditions were great for a cross country race. Mild tempts., sun, and a slight breeze added to the excitement of competition. Several six grade runners greatly helped in securing the victories. Leading the middle school girls were Iszy Sonnentag, who placed first overall, and Marley Mengel received a medel by finishing 8th. For the middle school boys, Aythen Wunrow greatly helped the team by finishing 8th and receiving a medal.
