The Elmwood School District is the recipient of a $5,000 grant from the Wisconsin Environmental Board.
That topic and more was discussed by the school board recently.
The grant was earmarked for the School Forest Education Plan, which the board approved, and the School Forest. According to Superintendent Adam Zenner, the question for the district now is how to further enhance the School Forest/Nature Trial for educational purposes.

Current Softball Coach Kim Webb presented the board with a petition signed by over 160 community members and 60 non-community members in support of the request.

Zenner classified this issue as “not tabled, just put on the shelf.”
