In response to last month's school shooting, the Be the Change Team delivered a message to students as they entered the building on Tuesday. The Be The Change Team wanted to share that message with all of you:

Did you choose to walk out last Wednesday? If so, why? Let’s continue to honor the students and teachers who were killed in the most recent school shooting. Today, please walk up to 14 students with whom you never speak and 3 adults to whom you can say something nice. Thank them for something simple. But, please don’t just do this today- do this every day. Walk up to a kid who sits alone at lunch or in the library; a kid who always walks alone in the hallway; the kid who is the last to be chosen in gym; the last to find a partner in class. You may have more in common than you realize. Please honor all those who have died in senseless school shootings by acknowledging the people you are with every day.

Wilmot Key Club has had a busy year. We’ve put on kid’s parties and movie nights, we’ve volunteered at the county fair and local school-related events.
We even made some major donations! One of our favorite places to volunteer is at Camp Wawbeek in the Wisconsin Dells. They are a camp for people of all abilities. This year we bought them a washer and a dryer and two new vacuums. Our year came to an end on the Key Club International calendar with our attendance on March 16 - 18 at our Wisconsin-Upper Michigan District (state) Convention (WI-UM DCON).

Wilmot Key Club made a big splash at the convention!

1st – we brought along a banner that we set out for all 800+ members of our district to sign. We will be sending it to Stoneman Douglas HS in Florida in support of their student body.
2nd – some of our members were recognized for their Key Club greatness!

Ella Harper-Schiehl and Keegan Heilegenthal
were recognized for accruing over 75 hours of community service this year

Ella Harper-Schiehl as Distinguished Club Vice-President

Emily Hershelman as Distinguished Club Secretary

Kimmy Zender and Sean O’Dowd were talent show winners as well

We can’t wait to get started on our efforts to finish the school year strong and plan for more service and success next year!

Do you know a student who would be an asset to our team?

Do you know anyone in need of service assistance? Are you?

Do you have any ideas for volunteer work in our community and/or beyond?

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us… we are here to help…

Contact Mrs. Marlene Tilsner (ext. 260) or Mrs. Marcia Nolan (ext. 250) at
