Baraboo School News

Online Registration Starts July 1

The Baraboo School District is excited to announce that registration for new and returning students can now be completed online.

This new option will save parents and guardians from having to fill out multiple forms by hand each year before school starts, and will simplify data entry for school staff.

The online registration option will go live on the Baraboo School District website July 1. 

Parents of returning students can log in to the Infinite Campus parent portal and find a link to registration there. Parents of new students in the district can find an online registration link on the homepage at

Before beginning the registration process, parents should have the following information on hand:

  • Home address and phone numbers.
  • Parent information, including work and cell phone numbers and email addresses.
  • Student demographic and health/medication information.
  • Emergency contact names and phone numbers.

Parents of current Baraboo students do not need to attend the in-person registration, as they are able to register their child(ren) and pay fees completely online.

Families who are new to the district, or those who require assistance in registering their children, can still attend the district-wide registration on Aug. 4 and Aug. 11 in the Baraboo High School cafeteria. Computer kiosks will be available, and bilingual and technical staff will be on hand to help as needed.

To pay registration fees or lunch deposits by cash or check, parents should come to registration at the high school or stop by their child's school office.

More information and detailed instructions will be available closer to July 1. Contact your child's school office with questions about this new process.


Book, Cook and Fitness Fun

It takes a village to make a snack. :) Students in Ms. Dequaine's summer enrichment class "Book, Cook and Fitness" class are learning new recipes, making their own cookbooks, and creating healthy and delicious dishes — as well as doing a workout in class every day! Parents of these kiddos: Has anyone cooked for you at home yet?

Eric Carle class merges art and science

Students in the "Eric Carle Author Study" class this summer are doing art, science and writing activities related to the beloved children's author.

They are studying the life cycle of a butterfly and watching one hatch, putting on a play of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," and creating their own books with collage-style illustrations with Mr. Lutz and Mrs. Culbertson. 


Summer has started, but learning doesn't stop

Is there a better way to spend a childhood summer morning than with your knees in the grass, dirt under your fingernails, digging for worms?

Not for Mrs. Knipp's "Finding Your Niche in the Outdoors," part of our great Summer Enrichment offerings. 

Upon examination of a worm who had been through some trauma, one student said, "Worms have five hearts... but this one might only have four left." Math and anatomy for the win!


Class of 2016 Graduate Parade

More than 50 members of the Class of 2016 paraded through our elementary schools in their caps and gowns as a pre-graduation celebration.

Kindergarten through fifth graders cheered them on with high fives and homemade signs, and former teachers got to see their all-grown-up students as they're about the cross the threshold into life beyond our schools.

We are proud of each and every one of our graduates. Thank you for modeling your perseverance, hard work and joy of learning for our younger students.
