I had the opportunity to attend a drama presentation that the third- through fifth-graders put on last week. They did a wonderful job with the help of Beverly Mann. I really enjoyed seeing what each grade performed.
Appleton Village School is participating in a fundraiser called Pennies for Patients. Pennies for Patients is something to help find a cure for Leukemia and other blood cancers. We ask you to bring in spare change and other money to help find a way to stop blood cancer. Every student got a little yellow box to put his or her money in, plus every classroom also got a box to put money in. Please help the Leukemia Society find a cure for blood cancer. (The deadline is Feb. 7.)
This year’s AVS Spelling Bee was exceptionally exciting with several rounds ending in tight battles. We have many excellent spellers here in Appleton but the two who came out on top this year are: First Place - Sophie Dorsky and Second Place - August Gray. Both students will be representing our school at the County Bee Feb. 12. Good luck to both of them!

Please contact the school office at 785-4504 to place that child’s name on our list. Registration doesn’t take place until the spring, but for budgeting purposes we are trying to determine the class size. Thank you for your help.

This past weekend my father was injured while out cutting firewood. I want to thank Appleton Fire Department and Union Ambulance for the quick response and thorough care. They were very efficient in assessing the situation and providing the proper care for my father. My dad will make a full recovery. I just wanted to thank those that helped him in his time of need!
