  • School's Out!

    Ray Castellanos|Jun 6, 2024

    "No more pencils; no more books; no more teachers' dirty looks. Out for summer. Out 'til fall. We might not come back at all!" - Alice Cooper, "School's Out" Well, we all know that's not true. A couple of weeks into their summer break and they're going to miss the classroom and their friends. And their teachers! Yeah, they'll miss those teachers' "dirty looks", and they'll realize that they really were looks of love; looks which brought their daydreaming back into the lesson; looks that taught...

  • Congratulations Class Of 2036

    Ray Castellanos|Jun 6, 2024

    Always a treat to watch is the Kindergarten Graduation, not only because they'll amaze you with how much they've learned in one year, but also because they run the entire program! Kindergarten teachers Sharon Stevens and Alexis Culp did an outstanding job in preparing these kids for first grade. Kids that one imagines were probably unmanageable on that first day of school back in August (we all know what kind of kids we dropped on the laps of these unsuspecting teachers that first day), they've...

What a world we live in!...

  • May, May Flies

    Nancy Royan|May 30, 2024

    May seems to have just began but then May flies! It is May, and time for mayflowers, mayapples and mayflies! Spring is a season bursting with cherry blossoms, the scent of lilacs, and the landscape devoid of winter white. Just like the mayfly, we are emerging from the depths of winter and able to move into the light. Mayflies are said to have been around before dinosaurs. “After more than 350 million years of evolution, they have perfected the art of life.” They start as an egg, turn into a naiad (water nymph!), emerge from the water, ful...

    The long-awaited day for the Class of '24 finally came this past Sunday at the North Gym as this year's seniors said a final good-bye to Cascade Public Schools, to begin a new chapter in their lives. Five of these seniors had spent their entire school life here, Badgers since kindergarten! But they will all take with them fond memories and values that can only be learned at a small town school. One wonders, however, what goes on in the seniors' minds as they sit there on the stage, the focus of...

  • I've been to a lot of places

    Nancy Royan|May 16, 2024

    I’ve been to a lot of places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone, you have to be in Cahoots with someone. I’ve also never been in Cognito, either. I hear no one recognizes you there. I have, however been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips. Ever heard the phrase “the real McCoy”? It refers to a ground-breaking inventor who revolutionized the railroad industry. Elijah McCoy was born to parents who fled slavery on the Underground Railroad. Elijah trained as a...

  • Cascade Kindergarteners Publish New Superhero Book

    Ray Castellanos|May 9, 2024

    The last time we saw Mrs. Culp's kindergarteners, they were sitting on the small hill in the elementary playground, intently looking up at the sky, with their special glasses, with the hope of possibly getting a glimpse of what was supposed to be the event of the year, a total solar eclipse. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate that day to the disappointment of, not only them, but the rest of us in Cascade. The sun disappearing is not really an unusual event. Solar eclipses happen more...

  • A Blast From the Past!

    Ray Castellanos|May 2, 2024

    Once again, characters from the past were brought back to life at Cascade Public Schools this past Thursday, giving everyone a unique history lesson. Fourth graders from Kourtney Holten's class, and Amanda Brown's high schoolers researched their characters and dressed up in period costumes to give their characters authenticity as they brought them to life. There were so many characters and, unfortunately, not enough time to visit with all of them. Maybe next time this Wax Museum could be...

  • Play Ball!

    Ray Castellanos|May 2, 2024

    It was a beautiful day for baseball Thursday, as Cascade teams played a scrimmage game in front of family and friends. Known as “America’s favorite pastime”, baseball is not just a game; it’s more than that. Baseball teaches our youth life lessons that will help them throughout their lives. First, there’s patriotism. It was beautiful to watch these kids start out their game by showing respect for country as they removed their caps and stood at attention for the National Anthem. This is a cruc...
