The annual WEAC publication Classroom Connections is now available. This free resource is for Wisconsin parents and caregivers of school-aged children, and provides tips and insights on how to navigate and be involved in your child's school.
Cuba City teacher and volleyball coach Keri Lawson was featured in the 16-page publication, sharing insight and information about the importance of belonging to extra-curricular activities.
The Cuba City school district was awarded a Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP) grant, which provides money to schools and community-based organizations.
"I love technology, but it's not helping our health and wellness," said Lawson, addressing increasing obesity rates in children. "I want to show children that you don't have to be an athlete to be fit."
Lawson and her collaborative team are also working with the local Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapter to install a school garden. The hope is to grow produce that can be offered in the school cafeteria as an option for meals.
