Third grade students at Jefferson Elementary School have a unique connection to Sheboygan-native and UW-Madison basketball player Sam Dekker. Jefferson students created a 'Flat Bucky', which is based on the popular children’s book “Flat Stanley.” The Flat Bucky Mentorship program aims to pair a Wisconsin student-athlete with a third grade classroom via social media for the entire school year.

Flat Bucky was mailed to Sam Dekker and travels with him throughout the UW-Madison campus and on the road with the basketball team. Following Sam's Intragram posts with Flat Bucky, teachers are able to incorporate geography through his travels, math by keeping track of game points, and reading and writing through a journal of the experience.

To celebrate and promote respect for ourselves, respect for others and respect for the environment, each Longfellow artist created a portrait resembling themselves. Grade levels used a variety of art and media elements to demonstrate their artistic talents in portraiture. The students were encouraged to create the portrait as if it were reciting the Longfellow pledge of respect. The Longfellow pledge was then attached to the frame of each portrait.
