Preserving Waunakee History

It was a very special evening at Heritage Elementary School. We welcomed community members who have a long history within the walls of our schools. They've touched thousands of students in Waunakee, and reached far more families that we can account for. 

This group came together to help in the planning stages of preserving history, artifacts, and items from the Heritage Elementary School and how this can be incorporated into the new buildings of Heritage and the Middle School.

Waunakee 4K Program

Our 4K program has a history of excellent programs for students, and we continue this tradition by offering an enriching experience for our youngest learners through Waunakee 4K. The Waunakee Community School District works collaboratively with local child care providers and preschools to offer 4K. We have been working hard to create a positive, enriching 4K program for children, and to provide many family outreach opportunities for families.
