“Work-Respect-Belonging” Key to Success
By Rob Scott, Phy Ed Teacher/SHS Football Coach
This past April the students of Four Corners Elementary School set out to “work” on raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin through the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association’s Charity All-Star Game.
Each of the school’s twelve classrooms collected change while competing against each other to try and raise the most money for the cause. For every $25 raised they received a paper football taped on their classroom’s door. Every classroom showed a great sense of “belonging” in doing their best for the children of Wisconsin by collecting as much change as they could. In the end the Student’s “worked” together, and competed against each other “respectfully” to raise $1,731.42!
Next the students participated in a contest to create artwork that would represent the student body through a color advertisement in the All-Star Game Program. Once all entries were submitted, students cast their votes to decide on the winning piece that would be submitted. See that artwork at the bottom of this article.
Several Superior Spartan players (Jake Libal, Nick Mehlum, and Sam Urban) and coaches (Bob DeMeyer, Aaron Fezzey, and Rob Scott) will be participating in this year’s game on July 18 in Oshkosh, WI.
Four Corner’s students displayed a great deal of generosity and “Work-Respect-Belong” while helping to support a great cause! If you know a student who attends Four Corners, please thank them for their hard work and support for the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
