A very grateful and “Grand” thank you goes out to all of the helpful community members who made our recent Sauk Prairie Pioneer Day trip a great experience for our fourth grade students and families.

The day was filled with a lot of wonderful experiences to help our students and families learn about the history of our great community. There were many great sites to see, hands-on learning experiences, guides, and presentations. Some of the sites and lessons were the Tripp Museum, which showcased an early printing press, vintage typewriter and antique piano; the story of Black Hawk, the magic lantern show, a fur trader, McFarlane’s restored vehicles, the Hahn House, the old Firehouse Museum and the Prairie House. The children riding on the bus concluded the day with a custard treat sponsored by Sauk City’s original Culver’s restaurant.

A special thank you goes out to Donna Stehling for the preparation and planning and to everyone who helped make history come alive for our students and chaperones.

A great community is made up of great people doing great things.
