Laona/Wabeno Boys’ Basketball Just Keeps on Winning!

Click on the Link Below to See Their Exciting Story!

http://www.wjfw.com/storydetails/20170116210829/laona-wabeno_basketball_just_keeps_on_winning


On December 20th, Mike McGowan came to Laona High School to speak with our students about making good decisions and empowering students to stay drug free. He first spoke with our 7th and 8th graders, giving them accurate information about chemicals, and the skills to resist the cultural pressure to use drugs. Wabeno High School students, grades 9 and 10, joined Laona’s 9th-12th grade students for Mike’s second presentation. Here, he was able to capture the attention of students by telling stories about his own experiences, and how people’s mistakes and poor decision making had serious consequences that impacted not only the rest of their lives, but other lives as well.

Thank you to Mrs. Keepers, Mrs Shepard, and to the art students who helped complete the painting of the new Rebel mascot on the high school gym wall.  Now our Kelly mascot has a friend!


 

New Concrete Poured on the Elementary Playground

A combined effort from Mr. Ryan Kelley’s technical education students and Smith Concrete has led to a new sidewalk for the School District of Laona. Students learned how to use a laser level, how to frame a sidewalk for concrete and how wire mesh is used to add strength to the concrete. Students then were able to help pour and finish the concrete under the direction of Jim Smith of Smith Concrete. The School District of Laona appreciates the generous donation of Mr. Smith’s time, tools and knowledge as well as Tony Smith of Tony’s Wabeno Redi-Mix for his donation of the concrete.

 

Student Academic Standards

As stipulated in 2015 Wisconsin Act 55, parents are hereby notified that the School District of Laona will be using the Wisconsin Standards for all content areas except Science.  We will be using the National Science Standards in this area.
