On Saturday, May 31, we held our first Rolling On Community Bike Ride to benefit the Mukwonago Food Pantry. Almost 100 riders from about 40 families participated in the event. Riders chose one of two courses through the subdivisions near our school. One was an easy, two-mile course, and the other was a slightly more difficult and longer four-mile course. To register, each family made a donation, and at the end of the event we had raised almost $900 for the food pantry in lieu of our annual food drive. In addition, the Town of Mukwonago Police were on hand with an obstacle course, and officers assisted with bike safety checks and helmet fittings. See our Facebook Page for more information and photos.
On May 19, Rolling Hills got a shout out from the local nonprofit group Generations Against Bullying (GAB)on TMJ4's Morning Blend program. President Linda Lee and Spokesperson Annie Jorgensen recently visited Rolling Hills to share the group's message against bullying. Pictures from Annie's visit and a photo of our buddy bench were shared during the segment. Check out the link here: http://www.themorningblend.com/videos/259404891.html.
Rolling Hills student Alex Goebel was honored on May 15 by Zaner Bloser as the 6th Grade Grand National Handwriting Champion! The sixth grade teachers selected Alex's handwriting sample from all school level entries. Then, his handwriting was judged against other sixth grade entries from other public schools in Wisconsin. As the statewide winner, his penmanship was then judged against the state winners from public schools across the United States. After winning that national title, he competed against the sixth grade national winner from the private school category. As the winner, Alex received a trophy and a $1,000 cash prize! This is the second year a Rolling Hills student earned the Grand National prize in this competition. Last year, sixth grader Lucas Morse won the honor. In addition, Rolling Hills student Christian K. was also selected as a statewide handwriting winner in kindergarten after winning the school competition. Statewide winners recieved a special medallion. Other school level winners included Abigail G. (1st Grade), Cameron R. (2nd Grade), Gabrielle H. (3rd Grade), Andrew LaBelle (4th Grade), and Zane Robe (5th Grade). Zoey J. (2nd Grade) and Drew C. (5th Grade) received honorable mention awards. Congratulations to all of the students!

Mukwonago High School was recently named to the 4th Annual AP District Honor Roll as chosen by the College Board. MHS was 1 of 477 school districts in the United States and Canada who earned a place on this year’s list. The AP District Honor Roll recognizes efforts to open AP classroom doors to a significantly broader pool of students, while maintaining or improving the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher. Since improvement in AP results typically takes sustained effort, the AP District Honor Roll is based on examination of three years of AP data (2011, 2012, and 2013) from all students who took AP Examinations in May of those years. In addition to increasing overall AP involvement, performance levels must be maintained or improved when comparing the percentage of exams scoring 3+ in 2013 to 2011. While the District Honor Roll is not necessarily a roster of higher performing districts, it is a roster of districts that are simultaneously expanding opportunity and proving performance. We would proudly like to recognize the combined efforts of our students, staff, and parents who made this honor possible. Full list can be found here.
