St. Croix Central has had an incredible fall to get our 2017-2018 school year started. Our varsity athletics performed at phenomenal levels with much success, and we witnessed extremely positive performances and outcomes athletically at the middle school as well. With all of these fantastic performances to think about, I would characterize the performances that took place at the Community Auditorium this past weekend as simply amazing and one of the best performances of the fall.
St. Mary School is proud to announce the middle school students on the honor roll for the first quarter.

Friday Memorial Library and Wisconsin's Digital Library are on a mission: Get more people to try digital reading! While we have offered ebooks and digital audiobooks to the community with OverDrive for years, we know that many people are still surprised to learn their library card gives them access to over 71,000 free digital titles.
Books the Elf is staying very busy at the library. He's been sighted all dressed up in his tux ready for a night out on the town ... he might have met up with one of his lady friends from your home! He was busy with his advice booth (lots of people needing advice this holiday season). Books was excited to ride in his Lego sleigh pulled by his reindeer in the fresh snow. He has encouraged people to do three good deeds a day; have you thought about how your kind deeds can change the world, one person at a time?
St. Croix Central made the move to the Middle Border Conference two years ago with many questions. Were we ready to handle the elevated competition? Were we big enough, fast enough, and strong enough? A "big school" mentality, systemic approach to strength and conditioning, and a unified athletics department have all contributed to the success of our athletics this fall. From athletes, to coaches, to parents and community, we have all had a hand in the growth and development of our athletic culture.
Congratulations to all the successful deer hunters. Bryan Utecht was this year's New Richmond High School Big Buck Contest winner. Utecht harvested a 12-point buck with a 15-inch inside spread. Matt Kukacka, Jens Christenson and math teacher Samantha Jahnke harvested nice bucks as well. As the winner of the contest, Utecht will get to select the non-profit organization to which the $26 will be donated and also receive his name on a plaque.
