The 4th graders attended the Madison Symphony's Youth Concert in November. The orchestra played Symphonic dances by Bernstein, Dvorak and others and even got to see a dance company perform with the music. We had front row seats at the Overture! A cellist from the Symphony also came to present and play for the students a week earlier.
For busy parents, having day care programming after school during holidays and breaks for students is a game-changer. But affordability can be an issue. Click on the link below to read the Stoughton Courier Hub story about the new after school care program at Kegonsa.

On Mondays this Spring Kegonsa First graders have the opportunity to spend time in the local forest exploring the outdoors and strengthening their deepest wonders in nature. "Firsts in the Forest" gives students time to explore, experiment, persist and collaborate with others.
The students have had opportunities to engage in activities such as engineering waterways and dams, building forts and tracking deer!
The Stoughton police dog, Ole, visited Kegonsa Elementary School on Thursday morning (April 12) after the school helped raise money to support Ole in his service to the community.
Earlier this year, Kegonsa Working for Kids organized a shoe drive that encouraged students, staff and community members to donate new or gently used shoes for a fundraiser. Kegonsa ultimately collected 2,950 pairs of shoes. The Kegonsa Student Council and Working for Kids chose to donate $800 of those proceeds to Ole, whose K-9 care is funded by community donations.
Ole and his handler, Officer O'Neil, visited Kegonsa for an all-school assembly so the kids could team more about what it takes to be a police dog and handler and could ask questions. A check presentation ceremony followed.
Check out Mr. Schultzes' new website. It contains all things counseling that are going on @ Kegonsa. Make sure to read the blog for weekly updates.
Kegonsa was highlighted in the Stoughton Courier Hub on Thursday, February 22, 2018. Please read about the great things happening at Kegonsa!
Students in 4th grade at Sandhill went to the Overture to hear the Madison Symphony perform their fall Youth Concert on November 7th. The Symphony sent two musicians (an oboist and a violist) to our school with a docent a couple of weeks before to help the kids learn about the music they would be hearing.
Students heard Dvorak's New World Symphony, Gould's "American Salute", Copland's "A Lincoln Portrait" and the ever-popular "Stars and Stripes Forever" by John Phillip Sousa. They had a great time!
