Hannah Helt is Sauk Prairie High School Optimist September Student of the month


Hannah Helt, a senior at Sauk Prairie High School and daughter of Kevin and Jennifer Helt, has been selected as the Sauk Prairie High School Optimist September Student of the Month. Nominated by Mary Walz, math teacher and NHS advisor at Sauk Prairie High School, she says, “Hannah is the current National Honor Society President who has been enhancing her leadership skills as we navigate new ways to meet and do things [during the pandemic]. She always remains optimistic about how we can remake our old into a new way of collaborating to serve our school and community. We have met virtually, and continue to serve our local food pantry.” The Sauk Prairie Optimist Club has been meeting virtually two times per month and will honor Hannah at a virtual meeting in the near future.

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.
