As we approach summer here in the Edgerton School District, we have much to share with our alumni, supporters and community members. It has been another busy school year, with students, staff and families working hard to make Edgerton such a special place.
With that in mind, we have a few pieces of news to share with you:
Kohl Foundation Recognizes 2 Edgerton High School Students
Two Edgerton students have received awards from the Herb Kohl Foundation.
Senior Sally Lemke received a 2018 Student Excellence Scholarship, a $10,000 scholarship that goes to 100 Wisconsin high school seniors who have demonstrated academic excellence and a high motivation to achieve. The award emphasizes citizenship, leadership and community involvement, along with academic achievement.
Receiving the Kohl Foundation Student Initiative Scholarship was Grace Farrington. The award recognizes those who demonstrate considerable effort to achieve academic excellence, often while overcoming challenges or adversity. Teachers and school administrators can nominate students for the award.
Congratulations to these two impressive Edgerton students!
Students Take Part in Memory Project
Several Edgerton High School art students recently participated in the Memory Project, creating portraits for children who have suffered from neglect, war, extreme poverty and abuse around the world. Students drew portraits of children in Syrian refugee camps.
It was an emotional and truly eye-opening experience for our students, and one that helps them see things from a global perspective. Check out this video to see more. (You might want to grab a tissue first!)
Edgerton School Board Welcomes New Member
The Edgerton School Board has a new member after the April 3 election. Tim Shaw, who was a write-in candidate, earned a spot on the board. He will replace outgoing member Jordan Wileman, who did not seek re-election. Shaw has children attending Edgerton schools and has served as a youth sports coach and referee.
Also winning another term on the board were incumbents Steven Doll, Kelly Kwiatkowski and Derek Ninmer. The district would like to welcome Mr. Shaw to the board, and we thank Mr. Wileman for his service to our schools and community.
