-From  Mary Beth Steven, CES Fifth Grade Teacher:  All fifth grade students participated in NPR's first Podcast Challenge this year.  They were split into 15 groups, each group creating a 3-12 minute podcast about a word of their choice.  This podcast series, One Word at a Time, required the students to choose a word, research the word for its past and present uses, write a script, record themselves, and edit the audio file at Audacity in our computer lab.  Out of 6,000 podcasts submitted to the contest from across the country, one of our podcasts was chosen as a finalist in the middle school category!  Hannah Johnson, Makenna Angerhofer, Jacob Olson, and Casey Granger created that podcast about the word Kerfuffle.  Besides that great honor, three other of our podcasts were chosen as honorable mentions.  They are the podcasts called Hippopotamus, Propose, and Eureka and involved another 13 of our 5th grade students!

-From  Keith Schneider/Mike Klingbeil:  The Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin (GCAW)” is pleased to announce that Jacob Nottestad, Dane Jenson, Drew Jeffery and Stone Farruggio of Cambridge High School are 2019 Academic-All State honorees. Students are submitted by GCAW coaches if they meet the following criteria:  1) A cumulative GPA of at least 3.25, 2) participation in at least 75% of their team’s varsity matches, and 3) are a sophomore, junior or senior. These are student-athletes who have served as a great example to others, proving that athletic and academic successes are not mutually exclusive.  The GCAW is proud to announce that 401 students from 125 different high schools have been honored this year.  In fact, the average GPA of these students is an exceptional 3.747.   The GCAW was formed by high school golf coaches in 1986 to help build and enhance Wisconsin's reputation for developing quality junior players by promoting golf in our schools and communities.
