Music has a special way of bringing people together. No one seems to understand this better than our friend and Emmy award-winning violinist and founding member of the Trans Siberian Orchestra, Mark Wood. He generously hosted a workshop for all of our 5th-grade orchestra students and performed alongside the entire MCPASD orchestra in a public concert at the performing arts center. Students had a blast playing classic rock songs such as Smells Like Teen Spirit and Sweet Child O Mine. Our MCPASD orchestra teachers even joined in on the fun by performing in the concert alongside our students! You can learn more about this fantastic opportunity for our students here. 

West Middleton Elementary also had some visitors this month! Thanks to the thoughtful application submitted by Elementary Library Media Specialist Amanda Struckmeyer, West Middleton was chosen as the only school in Wisconsin to receive a visit from author and illustrator duo Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr on their busload of books tour across the U.S. The tour aimed to bring awareness to public schools' challenges, empower students' love for reading and creativity, and highlight public educators' outstanding work. The visit was free of charge as part of Swanson and Behr's mission to help support underprivileged students. As part of the visit, all students attended a creative writing workshop, and both students and staff received a copy of Swanson and Behr's new book "'Ben Yokoyama and the Cookie of Doom.'

During our school board meeting on November 7th, our District had the honor of recognizing our 2022 Wisconsin Association of School Boards Business Honor Roll nominees. This program recognizes local school district business partners that support their local schools by providing resources or additional learning opportunities for students and staff. We are incredibly fortunate to have strong ties in our community. These organizations have helped us in many ways to build on our goals to make MCPASD a great place to learn. A special thank you to Spencer Real Estate Group, Singlewire Software, the Latino Academy, Piggly Wiggly in Cross Plains and Apptegy for being valued partners of our school district. 

I would also like to extend a thank you to the Middleton-Cross Plains Education Foundation and to those who attended the "Bloom" fundraising event. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet with members of our community and share our passion for education. All the proceeds from the event and silent auctions will be used to support caring closets across all of our schools. This resource is available for any of our students and their families in need. Students will have access to clothes, food, and personal hygiene items as needed. Thank you again to our community and the Education Foundation for your support.
