  • Persons riding on floats should have proper footing/seating and should not hang any appendage over the sides of the float.

Gals Institute & the Oconomowoc Area School District invites you to attend a FREE viewing of the documentary Screenagers.

Screenagers is a documentary created and directed by Delaney Ruston, a physician and film director. The film describes what it is like growing up in a tech-saturated world and the importance of balance between screen time and screen-free time. Through poignant stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, Screenagers reveals how tech time impacts kids' development and offers solutions for adults who hope to empower their children to establish the right balance.

We will also explore how screen time looks different in a school setting versus free time at home. An expert panel discussion will follow the 70-minute documentary. Panelists will help your family establish balance and increase your parenting toolkit!

Students in grades 5-12 welcome to attend with parents.

Registration to attend this FREE parent event is now open.

On May 20, 2017, Jacob Juneau, an OASD graduate, died of a sudden illness at 20 years old. Jacob's life was a reflection of his character: playful, affirming, creative and kind. In honor of that very life, and because his mother Carol is a staff member at Ixonia Elementary, we would like to create something to honor Jacob's memory and to impact the lives of other children.

Many of us have been looking for a way to honor his memory and have settled on an idea that addresses meaning and permanence. With your help, we hope to provide musical playground equipment in Jacob’s memory and to commemorate his life.  Not only was Jacob a loving friend he was also passionate about music. We feel this is a meaningful gesture to honor him. The musical space at Ixonia Elementary will give students the opportunity to make music and be creative outdoors. Several instrumental pieces have been chosen to create a “musical garden” in honor of Jacob.


At this time, we invite you to participate in honoring Jacob by supporting this project and donating if possible, to invest in the following equipment:

  • Freestanding, double player, metal chimes: $3,899.00
  • Cabasas: $859.00
  • Bongo Drums:$1409.00
  • Commemorative plaque:$100.00
  • Our goal is $4000.00

Any donation made to this project will go directly to the specific pieces outlined above, and if we exceed our goal it will only allow us to choose superior equipment, more pieces, and even give to our music department. All donations are tax deductible.


*Direct donations via check can be made out to Ixonia PTO and mailed to:
Ixonia PTO
N8425 North Street
Ixonia, WI 53036
(please note “Jacob Juneau musical project” on the check memo or envelope and include your name, address, and email)

*You can also visit our PayPal account and donate online: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=3UBK4HE6PH7LA.

 

Thank you,
