March Cereal Madness at WL-S
The more than 1400 boxes of cereal were set up throughout the halls of the entire elementary and successfully fell completely in order and ending with the WL-S grand finale in the gym! Specials teachers planned and designed the route that the dominos would take, while fifth graders were integral in the set-up, tear down, and execution of the falling boxes. After the main event, students helped load volunteers' cars with all 1407 cereal boxes that will stock local food pantries in Champaign and Logan Counties.
INAUGURAL Youth VIRTUAL Career Fair to connect Ohio businesses to Ohio graduating high school seniors
We currently have over 2,000 high school seniors participating in the virtual career fair from 24 counties and the list of students, schools and counties is still growing! The students are READY TO WORK and it is critical that we have outstanding employer participation from across the state!!
Career Town Network knows that it is difficult to find the right employee that has all the skills a business requires. Their virtual career fair platform is designed to connect job seekers with employers, similar to the way an in-person career fair works. Employers populate their virtual booth with as much content as they want, including videos and links to their social media pages. Recruiters and Human Resource staff can video chat with the job seeker & HIRE THEM ON THE SPOT!
Career Town is offering businesses the opportunity to participate in this virtual career fair at a significantly discounted rate of $250 per booth (regularly $950). Businesses should contact Jeannie Mok, Regional Relationship Manager, at email@example.com to learn more about the platform and how they can participate. Please reference EnvisionEdPlus.
School Registration is free and has been extended through April 7th. When schools register, they will identify a School Champion to support their students. The School Champion will work with others in their district to recruit students, support and help them to register for the event. Student participation in the Virtual Career Fair is FREE!
EnvisionEdPlus will provide live virtual training to School Champions to help students create high quality resumes and LinkedIn profiles.
This event is funded in part by Ohio Department of Education's Innovative Workforce Incentive Program grant.

The artist is Urbana native Madison Larocque, and she has been working with the leadership team and the building owners to come up with the perfect mural design. The inspiration is "Be The Light" and comes from the photos above; it will be a place where all can stop to enjoy the artwork, snap a picture, and share with the world. They are nearing the final design stages and plan to have the mural in place on or before May 1st. They estimate the total cost of this project to be $2,000 and are in need of community members and local businesses to help support this cost, which includes compensation of the artist. Any money raised beyond the $2,000 will go into a newly created Public Art Fund housed at the Champaign Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau for future projects throughout the county. They ask that you consider making a donation to help reach the goals they have and hope that you will be able to make a contribution. Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing them to continue in their work. Remember that every donation and gift makes a difference, regardless of size.
