New: Whoopensocker Creative Writing and Performance Program!
January-April, 2019

Whoopensocker is a 3-month (January through mid-April) creative writing, improvisation, and performance program for 5th-6th graders. This program is offered at the Youth Center in partnership with the UW Creative Arts Collaboratory and will involve artists/performers who involve students in improvisation games, brainstorming story ideas and core story elements, writing and performing stories individually and in groups, and will culminate in a performance at the Youth Center Spring Showcase on April 18th.

Residencies are led by teaching artists trained through the UW-Madison School of Education and include graduate students in education and theatre as well as Dane county-based professional artists. Whoopensocker embraces a fully inclusive model of education; kids are encouraged to participate regardless of their IEP (disability) or English Language Learner status. In fact, the more diverse the student group, the better the stories and performances! Our goal is that at least half of the students participating are struggling readers and writers who are likely to benefit from participating in a program geared toward building skills and enthusiasm for creative expression. 

Students are strongly encouraged to be involved for the entire program from January- the April 18th performance.

Please email us at MiddletonYouthCenter@ci.middleton.wi.us to enroll your student in this exciting new program!

Drop-in Basketball at Kromrey Field House
3:40-5pm Every Tuesday until Spring Break!


Youth Center students can participate in drop-in basketball at the Kromrey Field House every Tuesday from 3:40-5pm from now until Spring Break. Students should go straight to the Kromrey Field House, where they can sign-in with Youth Center staff and get an after school snack before playing basketball. This activity is limited to the first 20 Youth Center students who sign-in. If drop-in basketball is full, students can still go to the Youth Center after school. At 5pm, students must either be picked-up at Kromrey or they will walk with Youth Center staff to the Youth Center, which closes at 6pm.
