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.ย 

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 programย 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.ย The Waunakee Community School District works collaboratively with local child care providers and preschools to offer 4K.ย We have been working hard to create a positive, enriching 4K program for children, and to provide many family outreach opportunities for families.

Census 2023 - We want to hear from you!

If you are a Waunakee Community School District resident and have children (birth through 18 years of age ) not currently enrolled in our district, we would like to hear from you. The census is different from registration. Do not include currently enrolled WCSD students. The benefit to you is that if you fill out the census, you are in our system and we are able to contact you with information appropriate for the age of your child(ren).

It helps us plan our future enrollment in our district. It also allows us to provide you with information appropriate for your child.
