Helping the Community Keep Warm
Lone Pine Elementary came together to raise over $1,600 for THAW (The Heat And Warmth Fund)! "My teacher Ms. Lockledge is in charge of the Student Action Team at Lone Pine. We learned that many children and their families have to keep their coats on in their homes to keep warm," shares second-grade student Preeyo Randawa. Student Reyna Schwartzenfeld adds, "Ms. Lockledge promised to dye her hair purple if we meet our goal of $1500 by March 1. We did it! All the teachers and staff added purple to their hair too."  Thanks Lone Pine for serving our community!

New York Times Cartoon Contest

Congratulations to BHHS students Ayesha Ahmed and Leena Jandali for each receiving an honorable mention in the New York Times Editorial Cartoon 2018 Contest!

Ayesha shares, "I compared Colin Kaepernik's decision to kneel during the national anthem and Baraboo High School students making the Nazi salute.  Kaepernik's decision was criticized as being disrespectful and the Wisconsin students were considered exercising their First Amendment rights."

Leena explains the titled piece 'Denial', "President Trump denies the murder of Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi; denies the interference of Russia in the 2016 election; denies global warming."
