Calling all three-year-olds! The Elkhorn Playgroup is accepting applications for the 2024-25 school year. Register online at tinyurl.com/elk-playgroup-24 This program is a playgroup consisting of five students with special needs and five typically developing students. It meets multiple times a week for two hours a day at Jackson Elementary School in Mrs. Kitzmiller’s classroom. During this program, play-based learning will expose students to literacy, gross and fine motor, and language development activities. This model allows for enrichment for all children who participate in the program. Research shows that these blended classrooms provide benefits for all children who participate. To be eligible to attend: Children should be three years old by September 1, 2024, and toilet trained. Registration is limited to five students per session, and a lottery system will be utilized to determine placement. The lottery will be held on May 15, 2024, and families will be notified by May 20, 2024, if their child is selected to attend. Families of peer models will need to provide their own transportation to and from school. Please contact Jill Kitzmiller at kitzji@elkhorn.k12.wi.us if you would like further information.

On Monday evening the Elkhorn Area School District Community lost an incredible man in a tragic accident. Randi Wulf was an incredible person, husband, father, teacher, coach, and friend. He was a genuine outstanding individual. Humble, honest, caring, and sincere. He exemplified the greatest characteristics you would want to see in a person. Mr. Wulf was a teacher and coach in Elkhorn for 29 years. He loved his students and recognized the benefits co-curriculars had in developing important connections and relationships with them. As such, Mr. Wulf’s family has requested to establish a memorial fund (bit.ly/48GRZYw) in his name to benefit the Elkhorn All-Sports Booster Club. Donations made at bit.ly/48GRZYw will go to the All-Sports Booster Club in Coach Wulf’s name to carry on the mission and passion that Randi had and assist with providing access and opportunities to the students of Elkhorn Area School District.
