Class of the Week Winner 11/7: Auburndale Elementary 4th graders

AUBURNDALE (WAOW)-- This week's Class of the Week winners are the 4th graders at Auburndale Elementary School!

The students painted and decorated about 60 wooden pumpkins made out of landscape timbers.

Once they finished making them, they brought them over to the Bethel Center Nursing home, just outside of Arpin...and to the BadgerCare Elderly Home in Auburndale.

When the students took the pumpkins over, they performed a special musical performance, and some students even played the piano for residents.

The students wore their Halloween costumes, and actually visit the Bethel Center five times throughout the year.

They go for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, and for Nursing Home Week.

One of the 4th grade teachers, Ms. Beth Clouse, says the students get very excited about their visits.

After they are done singing and playing their music, they spend time to talk with all the residents.

Ms. Clouse says after the visits, you feel like your heart is swollen triple the size.

This is another example of students and faculty coming together to touch the lives of those in need.

If you would like your school to be on Wake Up Wisconsin be sure to email us at with all your nominations.

Every Friday at 6:30 on Wakeup...we recognize a different school for their accomplishments.
