About this school

In 2007-2008, our school became the second school in Wisconsin to be awarded the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports Award. We will be a model school for the state of Wisconsin for the next three years. In 2008-2009, our school received the Silver Award in the Wisconsin's Governor's Challenge. Physical fitness and nutritional well-being is an important part of our school and staff's daily lives. Many classrooms have begun walking clubs, or have found other ways to remain active throughout the day. We also encourage our students to eat healthy by providing them with healthy fruit and vegetable snacks twice a week.
