Ava Handschke is Optimist Middle Level Leader


Ava Handschke is the Optimist Sauk Prairie Middle Level Leader for October. She is an 8th grader and the daughter of Terry and Jessica Handschke. Ava was nominated by her Chorus teacher, Jennifer Gulsvig. Ms. Gulsvig had this to say about Ava: ”Ava is very involved in music at Sauk Prairie Middle School. She has been a band member for four years. I have been fortunate to have her in chorus for the past two years, and this is her second year being a part of Soaring Sound, the Middle School show choir. Ava is one of the most hard working 8th graders I have ever taught. She is conscientious, and if she ever has to miss rehearsal for any reason, she lets us know way in advance. What impresses me the most about Ava is how kind she is to every single student. I have loved having Ava in class and will be sad to see her go to the high school next year!” In school Ava is an eight grade mentor and is a member of both show choir and student council. Outside of school she is in dance and swimming. She hopes to one day pursue a career as a labor and delivery nurse.
