DHS Robotics

When thinking about the daily curriculum of high school students, most would imagine the usual subjects like math, science and reading, etc. What few, if any, would envision is designing, building and competing with robots. However, this semester at Denmark High School, a select group of students are doing just that in the new robotics class.

Winter weather arrives

Last week, to the disappointment of many readers, winter finally took its first brutal swings at our community. After what had been an unusually mild and temperate start to the season, the snow, ice and cold finally showed up in a big way.

Building an education

Over the past few months, readers may have noticed a small structure being assembled on the north side of Denmark High School. Since September, the mini-building has taken shape as the school's construction class has completed their annual project. Last week, we talked with the class's instructor, Tim Kapinos, to learn more about the project itself and the benefits it provides for his students.

Preserving our history

While the Denmark Village Hall may be finding a new home in the former BMO Harris Bank, another organization has already called the building home for a decade. In 2024, The Denmark Historical Society will mark its tenth year headquartered in the basement of the former bank which hosts their museum as well as storage for their large collection.

Referendum construction update

Despite the weather turning towards more wintry conditions, progress on the new addition to Denmark Elementary School is continuing at a steady pace. Since breaking ground in August, the district's partnering contractors have been hard at work assembling the large addition that is scheduled to house students within this calendar year. 

Village Hall makes the move

This year, Denmark Village Hall and its associated offices have a new home in the former BMO Harris Bank building on the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and North Wall Street. Municipal offices officially vacated their former location at 118 Main Street on December 28 making the relatively short move down the street to their new headquarters.
