Van Brunt Newsletter
April 2018 Edition
A Note from the Principal
Dear Van Brunt Families,
Welcome Back! I hope everyone enjoyed spring break and took some time to relax and enjoy time with your family. It's hard to believe we are beginning fourth quarter and only have two months left of school! I am so proud of what has been accomplished so far this school year and look forward to finishing strong. Please encourage your child to make the best of this last quarter.
Students in third through sixth grade are working hard to show what they know on the Wisconsin Forward Exam. We are seeing focus and students taking pride in their work. They are taking their time, taking breaks when they need one, and really putting forth their best effort. Our fabulous PTO donated $500 so we could purchase snacks for students during testing.
We are looking forward to a wonderful fourth quarter full of fun and learning. As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Getting to know the Team of the Month
This is my 11th year teaching for the Horicon School District. I've taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade. I like teaching here because of the great staff we have and because the kids love being here to learn. I have been married to my beautiful wife Sarah for 8 years. We have two children Emma 5 and Ryan 3. In my free time I enjoy golfing.
Jump Rope For Heart
Go For The Gold Assembly
Students found a comfy place to plop and read until the "reading blizzard" passed through the school. Some students read old favorites, while others tried some challenging words.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR MARCH POPS WINNERS!
