Finding Space

A website blog has been on our minds at Wingra for quite some time. We thought it would be a great way to share our families’ stories, share the incredible learning that takes place every day, share the brief bright classroom moments and the long adventures of our alumni. Now seems like an especially good time to launch it.


Wingra families, email Christine (christine@wingraschool.org) a photo or a line from a book you’re reading. Send a description of the family fort that has taken over your living room or a sound byte from your backyard. Be your identifiable self, or be anonymous. It doesn’t matter to us.


This is a space. A collective one. A place to be vulnerable together, and we’re happy to start…

My dad is getting up there in age but has the heart and soul of a much younger man. He loves sports of all kinds (but has been less steady on his feet the last couple years), so we were planning to have a Pool party for him (as in billiards, not water). If he HAD TO have a party, that was acceptable to him. Then, Capital Lakes Retirement Center, for the safety of all, restricted visitors and the movement of their residents. We were all pretty disappointed. Using our new technology skills for meetings, we got everyone up-and-running (from Texas, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin) and had a virtual 85th birthday party, complete with cake and candles. “I didn’t think I would see anything like this,” said BobDaddy. You never know what’s coming next!
