Sculpture unveiling a magical moment
To our Waunakee Area Community,
We want to thank so many of you--students, teachers, school district staff, and our over 100 supporters and in-kind donors for helping us to deliver an iconic sculpture monument to our community. This sculpture, on the high school plaza entrance, celebrates all that is good with education in our community.
The events of a week ago, were magical and extraordinary. Internationally renowned sculpture artist Michael Kalish spent the better part of two days interacting with hundreds of students in several of our schools. Scores of students from all Waunakee school district schools, including St. John the Baptist and Madison Country Day School, participated in the Dedication and Celebration events: student art show in the high school; singing This Peaceful Valley in the Performing Arts Center; playing the brass fanfare on the plaza; unveiling the multiple sculpture monument pieces; preparing food for the reception; photographing and videoing the events; individual student performances during the reception.
We invite you to frequently visit, interact with and enjoy the sculpture monument on the high school plaza. Visit during the day and after dusk, when internal lighting will change one’s experience. The sculpture monument is a lasting celebration of how our community values education.
