Crescent gives back
Crescent Elementary School students and families have been busy collecting pop tops.

Recently, they brought all the boxes filled with pop tops to Oak Leaf Recycling and were told they had collected 150 pounds of aluminum. A check was made out for $37.50 to The Ronald McDonald House in Marshfield as a donation on behalf of Crescent Elementary School. The Ronald McDonald House is a place where families can stay when their child is at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield. Pictured with the check is Benjamin Olson, a third-grader at Crescent. Ben was born prematurely and spent time in the NICU at St. Joseph's and his family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House until Ben was able to come home. To donate, drop off pop tops at the Crescent front office.

Central Holiday concert
While the weather and Rhinelander roads were frightful Tuesday afternoon, the sounds in the Rhinelander High School auditorium were delightful as fifth-grade Central Elementary School students performed their holiday concert. Songs included "Deck the Halls," "Old Fashioned Holiday" and others. Students played "Ukrainian Bell Carol" and "Fantasy on an Old French Carol" on recorders, and several students had instrumental and vocal solos. The concert was postponed due to the pertussis outbreak that closed Rhinelander schools for 17 days.
