Montello Forward 2020 - Strategic Planning

Student Citizenship Series through the Montello Schools Library

Montello Schools Library is pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative entitled, "The Student Citizenship Series." This is meant to be a series of programs designed to have students become more familiar with a topic.

The first topic will be "The Story Behind School Lunch." This program will cover how the lunch program chooses its menu, and the reasons behind why it serves the menu it currently serves (covering government regulations). Mrs. Joyce Gaulke, Food Director, will be presenting this program.

The program will be on Thursday, May 19 @ 2 PM in the library for all students. All students who attend must have a valid pass and must sign into the library.

For more information, you can contact Mr. Bruckner in the library.

Academic and Career Planning

Academic and Career Planning, or ACP, is a student-driven, adult-supported process in which students create and cultivate their own unique and information-based visions for post secondary success. Students learn about self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills. All students at Montello Jr./Sr. High School participate in ACP activities supported by the counseling department through advisory lessons to ensure future success. All Jr./Sr. High School students have created an electronic ACP with their advisor, be sure to ask them about their future plans!

Ecosystem Simulation in Biology!

Sophomores used their skills of understanding humans in the ecosystem to simulate an oil spill clean up on the Alaskan Coast. Students first had to use a miniature ocean coast with the correct salinity of water. Students became environmentalists. Students had to pick only eight items to transport to Alaska for cleanup. Students designed a clean up plan and tried to retrieve the most oil without ocean water. Bryce Koback, Bryan Smith, and Griffen McConnell did the best out of all the sophomores. They used a spoon as a crane, and went slow not to break the surface tension, and the oil creeped up the "crane". Students had to take into consideration how weather and other environmental factors would play into the clean up process.

High Marq Environmental Charter School

Last week was a busy week for High Marq! Wednesday was the last Presentation Night of the school year and the students did an phenomenal job giving live presentations and having showcases in the cafeteria. Thank you again to all our guests and parents who came to visit, ask questions, and provide food!!

Thursday, High Marq visited the Packwaukee City Park to build bat houses for the park. They were also able to build a Leopold bench for our garden space back at the school. A special thanks to Pat and Jody for bringing their tools and expertise to assist in making those houses! The afternoon was spent completing a hike at John Muir Park, and was full of jumping worms, frogs, and toads!

Finally, Saturday was our second annual Family Adventure Day! Families around the community came to experience all that Marquette County has to offer, as well as enjoy some excellent activities for the day! Which included a special presentation on turtles by Kathleen McGwin and a few students got the opportunity to dress up as a whooping crane for the International Crane Foundation!

It was a busy and full week, so we are all looking forward to a week that is a little more low key! Enjoy the pictures!
