The second annual Lucky Loops event for K-12 students, staff, and community continues to be a fun and healthy way to increase physical fitness and lifelong goals.

Fall sports are in full swing at Luck School! Shown here is the 2014 Luck Cardinals football team. Check out the website calendar or athletic schedule at right for upcoming games.
Grab 'n' Go breakfast is a great option for grades 6-12 students. They can cruise through the cafeteria before school AND between 1st & 2nd hours (8:43-8:47 am) and pick up a pre-packaged healthy meal for the extra energy they need to survive 'til lunch.
The HS Agriculture Construction class, led by Mr. Tom Wesle, tackled an educational and profitable woodworking project. 60+ cedar planter boxes were cut, assembled, and sold with the profit benefitting the Luck FFA.
The Summer Saunters program involved Luck and Frederic Elementary students. 50 hikers enjoyed the challenge of daily walks on the Ice Age Trail and overnight camping on Thursday.
Luck School is MUCH more than just a building!

Miss Wohlk's 1st grade class took a trip to the school garden to study our five senses! The first graders wrote about what they could hear, smell, touch, and see. The green peppers and cherry tomatoes were yummy! More photos on Elementary tab.
The 3rd graders enjoyed learning from Ranger Nancy Beduhn about wolves, foxes, and coyotes. The students each made a casting of wolf footprint. More photos on Elementary tab.
The Harvest Garden is yielding a variety of vegetables! During the summer, the fresh produce is delivered to our local food shelf, and during the school year it will be used in the cafeteria. Contact Mrs. Ann Goldbach at 715-472-2152 ext. 109 or email@example.com to find out how YOU can help! More photos on Elementary tab.
Luck FFA Receives Donation
The Grantsburg Animal Hospital showed their support of the Luck FFA chapter this week by awarding them with a large donation. Dr. Greg Palmquist visited Luck School on Sept. 10 to present the FFA members and their new advisor, Miss Kelly Warwick, with the check. Each year the Animal Hospital signs the Luck chapter up to receive this donation through the Zoetis Industry Support Program, and because of their generosity, this year’s check has turned out to be the largest yet at $933. The Luck FFA Chapter deeply appreciates this donation and will be using it to take members to the National FFA Convention in October.
