Each month, all of us at WEAU, along with our friends at Gordy's Market, are thrilled to select one school as our monthly Schools Rule! contest winner.
Thursday Osseo- Fairchild Elementary School was selected as our winner for the month of January.
For our Schools Rule! contest, we receive nominations for schools all over western Wisconsin. Usually nominations come from teachers, parents, and students. But this month's Schools Rule! contest is about neighbors helping neighbors.
Many teachers work to shape not only the minds of their students,but also their hearts. One school in western Wisconsin recently started a new program to enforce the importance of not only being a good student, but also a good person.
With no homework or reading assignments, it can be easy for students to get rusty brains over the summer months. But one local elementary school is working to avoid that this year by putting books into the hands of students.
Every month all of us here at WEAU and our friends at Gordy's Market are thrilled to present one school in our area with $3,000 in Box Tops for Education, courtesy of General Mills.
It's through a program we've been doing for months now called 'Schools Rule!'
They say "third time's a charm."
That was certainly the case for one teacher at Elk Mound Middle School. She nominated her school three times in our monthly "Schools Rule!" contest. Thursday she won, thanks to a little creativity.
Hillcrest Elementary School in Chippewa Falls was selected as the WEAU/Gordy's County Market "Schools Rule" award winner for the month of September. Hillcrest students read more than a million minutes this past summer.
