Our Mission- High Quality Student Learning: Every Child, Every Day

 

The Bruce Otto family generously donated $5,000 to the High School Science Department. Bruce Otto graduated from THS in 1954. He earned a PhD in Organic Chemistry from Ohio State University and was the Vice-President for the AMOCO Oil Company. The donation went to upgrading equipment in the chemistry classrooms. We would like to thank the Bruce Otto family for the generous donation. The upgrades will make a significant impact on our chemistry students. 

   
   

Congratulations to our Forensics Speech team! After excellent performances from all at the La Crosse Districts, five members are moving on to state in Madison. Wish them luck (not that they need it)!

VAC (Visual Arts Classic) regional competition at UW La Crosse on March 3, 2017

Six Tomah High School students participated in the VAC completion. The Visual Arts Classic (VAC) is a competition for art students in grades 9-12.  It features 11 studio categories and an annually changing theme for the year.  Students are involved in in-depth research on the 12 selected artists whose work relates to the theme.  Scores are earned both individually and as a team.  Students have the opportunity to create artwork in response to a prompt as a “long-term” project.  Students also participate in a challenge to create artwork in response to a prompt as an “on-site” project. All first places advance from Regional to State competition on April 7th.
