Madeline Hoitink, Co Editor-in-Chief

Posted June 2nd, 2017

Over the years, the Nite Crier has improved and evolved tremendously, and I am very grateful that I was able to see that happen. I started writing for our school newspaper freshman year as the the sports editor. I remember being extremely intimidated interviewing senior athletes and other students. Now, I have shared the position of Co-Editor-in-Chief with Abbie this year, and it's been one of our best. From sophomore to junior year, I was able to see the transition from a newspaper to our website. I think this transition benefitted us greatly. Thank you to Mr. Wolf for everything; much of the Nite Crier’s success is thanks to him and his motivation! The Nite Crier staff is full of many talented writers, so I can't wait to see what the future holds for our Slinger High School newspaper!

Writing this goodbye address is difficult; how can one summarize a four year journey in a small paragraph? I've been a part of this staff for my entire high school career. My ‘Nite Crier’ folder in my drive is full to the brim of movie images (thanks a lot Robby) and other articles pertaining to school events. I have a completely separate folder filled with a 16 episode series, edited by Abbie every week. Abbie, you're quite incredible; don't stop writing. I'm so excited to see how Elizabeth,  the new Entertainment Editor, will progress the entertainment section. I've witnessed our transition from paper to website, and I'm excited to see how the Nite Crier will evolve after I leave. I'll be checking into this website from Steven's Point. Good luck, and happy writing!

NHS visits the Ronald McDonald House

On May 22, seven members of National Honors Society visited the Ronald McDonald House in Milwaukee across from Children's Hospital. The Ronald McDonald House is a shelter for families that are out of town and have a child in the hospital. They offer food, housing, and entertainment for adults and children. National Honors Society was there making the dinner for the residents and to lift up their spirits. They made four pasta dishes with salad, fruit, and rolls. At the end of the night, NHS cleaned up the kitchen and left with a feeling of appreciation for helping those in need.

2017 Senior Wills

posted May 26, 2017, 4:42 AM by Jeffrey Wolf

I, Claire Breitenbach, will Alto 2 Section Leader Status to Allie Korner. The responsibility to boss around the Vocal Jazz Alto Twos as much as you like and teach pitches with flair is all yours. You're a big kid now!

I, Shaylynn Schwark, will my locker to Brady Schwark. I will you my locker since you already share it with me, but now I’ll let you have the whole thing to yourself. Make sure you keep it clean; messy lockers bother me.

I, Emily Haluzak, will Squad Mom to Alyssa Murphy. You are the senior who will look over and care for each girl. You will make a great mom with your kind and caring heart my dear!!! Look after the girls for me!!

I, Cliff Wood, will the end of an era to the Citizens of the Independent Nation State of the Office and other visiting dignitaries. We are gathered here today to mourn the loss, and celebrate the life, of the great and venerable Independent Nation-State of the Office. As Vizier, it is my solemn duty to announce that as of the end of this school year, 2016-17, the side room will be no more. After years of tireless service to the students and faculty of the school, the life of the glorious hallway will be cut short before it has realized its true potential as the utopian seat of the new world order. While physically it may be gone, it shall live on forever in our hearts and transcripts.

I will Science Olympiad President to Nora Martin. It is simultaneously the best and worst thing I could reasonably give you. I've set the bar as low as I can; try not to trip on it on the way to State.

I, Kerstin Zagar, will leadership roles to Danielle Sholmer. Dear friend: I want to leave you with a very special opportunity as I walk away from here to do bigger and greater things. I want you to take on my job.

I, Chase Lowen, will music to Mariah Flynn. Always work hard to produce amazing music, and don’t let anyone discourage you from doing what you love.

I, Kira Wagner, will Squad B to Jade Dexter. The sassy leader of the squad, you'll be the best sassy leader of Squad B...well, maybe second...behind me.

I, John Fairbanks, will my Youtube channel to Matthew Remmick. I hope you can live up to the legend that is JohnFireBlast. XOXO

I, Joseph DeHayes, will the position of Section Leader of the Tenors to Toby Hill-Hernandez.  I entrust you, Toby, with section leader because I want someone who’s loud, confident in the pitch of music, and gives the section a positive attitude.  You fit all three of these.  Of course, I’ll teach you piano and vocal lessons so you can reach the peak of your current power. Now and in the future.  My only request is that you seek out a tenor that would make a good section leader before you graduate.  Be proud. I’ll be walking with you and the rest of the tenors the whole way.

I, Kendra Strohwig, will my Slacker Skills to Samantha Carloni. Take your gift and run with it… or don’t.

I, Megan Cichon, will leadership in music to Phillip Steenbekkers. You are such a strong musician, and I don't want you to let anything hold you back. Don't be afraid to grab the bull by the horns and take risks! It's okay if you fail; just get back up and go at it again! There's nothing I'd love more than to come back for Hallelujah Chorus and see you being the leader I know you're so capable of being. Until We Meet Again...keep singing. There is no greater gift in this world than song. Remember that :)

I will section leader to Allison Koerner. I can't wait to see what you accomplish as a senior in high school. You're so amazing already, and I cannot wait to see how you grow as a musician. Keep on smiling, because your smile is wonderful, and also keep singing!

I will my after school shift at the bakery to Joshua Roddy. Well, since I'm not making a two hour commute between Steven's Point and Sweet Creations, I guess you'll have to take over my after school shifts when I'm gone. Don't forget: custard and Boston cream are the same thing! :D

I will my chamber pearls to Katie Jaques. Since your pearls broke, I guess now you need new ones, huh? Take mine, and promise me you won't stop singing! Love ya! <3

I, Maddie Hoitink, will my old oboe reeds to Kasha Kapal; these reeds have been overused or broken by my clumsiness over the many years of band. Carry on the oboe legacy. Best of luck. I’ll miss playing with you every day.

I, Bryce Rufener, will my blessing to use my first name to Bryce Brennen. This will give you access to using my first name. Have fun next year bud! You better visit me.

I, Ben Bernard, will kindness to Chloe Vanderlinden. You have more kindness than anyone I’ve ever met. Thanks for sharing some with me.

I will ideas to Grace Schuppie. It’s the ability to make wise ideas and decisions. You are an amazing person. I want to you go down the road of success.

I will patience to Peggy Brennan. I am willing you my patience for home and work. Thank you for the best four years of my life!

Samaritan took 1st place in Engineering Documentation, and being sponsored by Solidworks this year, the prize was worth $1000 (nearly as much as all the other prizes combined). Nebula also won the "Coolest Bot" award, which takes a look at design and appearance of the finished bot. Total winnings were higher than any other team in BotsIQ Wisconsin history.

SkillsUSA goes to State

On April 25th and 26th, Slinger SkillsUSA headed to Madison, WI to compete in the state competition. Upon arrival, students were greeted with an opening ceremony, and were briefed to the specifics of the contest. The following day was the meat of the competition. Judges conducted interviews with all competitors, and reviewed all of their resumes. Many of the contests lasted several hours, and were rather intense. However, much to the disappointment of many, Construction was cancelled, due to safety concerns over standing water in the parking lot.

Six Slinger students finished with gold medals, and will be going to Louisville, KY from June 19th to the 24th for the national competition. Nationals will host a total of over 7,000 competitors, among them six Slinger students: Katie Meyer (Screenprinting and Technology), Noah Schilling (Photography), Rachel Hau, Hunter Milner, Matt Shea (Welding Fabrication Team), and Alyssa Koepke (State Trading Pin Design). Good luck to these national qualifiers!

SAMBA chicken dinner and entertainment scheduled for May 13th

For the 11th year in a row, SAMBA (Slinger Area Music Booster Association) will be hosting it’s annual chicken dinner on May 13th, at Allenton Park. SAMBA is the backbone of the music program at Slinger High School. They’ve contributed over $50,000 to the music program at SHS, including (but not limited to): over $9,000 in scholarships to seniors in band and choir, $300 towards recording concerts, and $10,000 in instruments. In addition to providing financial aid, SAMBA also assists with transporting equipment and other hands-on tasks.

The chicken dinner, on May 13th at Allenton Park, will be sending all money raised to support the music program at Slinger High School. This event, however, is more than a simple fundraiser. The night is jam-packed with fun: dinner is from 4:00 to 8:00 (kids meals are also available), and the live auction starts at 7:00. In addition, there’ll be a silent auction, raffle, and music, provided by SHS A Capella Choirs.

Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for kids; they’re available through May 3rd at the following locations: Romie’s in Allenton, Landmark Credit Union in Hartford and Bergmann’s, and Smiley’s in Slinger. Contact,, or with any questions concerning the chicken dinner.
