Global Learning and
Observations to benefit
the environment
By Kohler Science Teacher
Jessie Good
GLOBE is an international program composed of students, teachers, and scientists that work
together to investigate and learn
more about the environment. Students and their teachers collect and
share data with other scientists and
programs. Students in over 112
countries participate in GLOBE
data collection led by 57,581
trained teachers. The Kohler
GLOBE Program is among 24,507
other schools that also collecting
data. Over 10 million students
have contributed more than 22 billion measurements to the GLOBE
The GLOBE program in Kohler
is made up of students in Biology
and Honors Biology. These students share the responsibilities of
collecting and recording atmos-

pheric data every school day.
Upper classmen in Honors Chemistry, AP Biology, and Honors
Physics contribute to the collection
of hydrology data during the fall
and spring. These students make
up Kohler’s Testing the Waters
The atmospheric data collected
by students in GLOBE is entered
onto an international web-site data
base. Students enter measurements
such as high and low temperatures,
amounts of precipitation and pH,
cloud type, and relative humidity.
When combined with other data
presented by students and teachers
throughout countries around the
world, scientists can interpret and
observe changes in the environment. Overall, this program allows
teacher, and scientist to track and

learn more about our constantly
changing environment.
Biology teacher, Jessie Good,
and chemistry and physics teacher,
Dana Krejcarek, serve as advisors.

By Kohler Science Teacher

Honors Biology students at
Kohler High School have recently
completed the biotechnology component of the biology curriculum.
Biotechnology is the technology of
using living things to create useful
products. Biotechnology has historically been used in the making
of bread, wine, soap, the treatment
of waste, and the production of
cheese. Selective breeding of agricultural animals and selective
practices in crop planting have occurred for hundreds of years.
Biotechnology has changed due to
the advancements of technologies
such as computers and software in
the 1970’s to include the development of human insulin for the
treatment of diabetes, human
growth hormone for children, and
identification of specific genes responsible for genetic disorders,
and in some cases treatment for
those disorders.
Honors Biology students learn
and then use the steps necessary to
move a gene from one organism to
another. The process involves the
isolation of plasmid DNA, using
endonuclease restriction enzymes
to cut DNA at specific sites in the
DNA sequence, ligation of the
plasmid fragments, transformation
of bacteria, preparation and casting
of agarous gel, electrophoresis of
restriction enzyme digested DNA,
staining, viewing, and photographing the gel, and learning the
process by which scientists deter-

mine DNA fragment size.
This is the third year of the College Board’s revised AP Biology
curriculum which focuses on enduring, conceptual understandings
and the content that supports them.
This approach may enable students
to spend less time on factual recall
and more time on inquiry-based
learning of essential concepts and
better help them to develop the
reasoning skills necessary to engage in science practices. This redesigned curriculum will also
provide students the experiences
necessary to design a plan for collecting data, analyzing data, applying mathematical routines, and
connecting concepts. One area of
the new curriculum, Big Idea 3
Genetics and Information Transfer,
has students conduct two biotechnology investigations. One investigation
transformation in which Kohler
students transformed E. coli with
an ampicillin resistance gene
which was fused with the GFP
(green fluorescent protein). The
resultant ampicillin resistant bacterial colonies were grown on an
ampicillin plate and exhibited fluorescent properties with an ultraviolet light source. The second
investigation has Kohler students
completing a restriction enzyme
analysis of DNA and then calculating the sizes of restriction enzyme
fragment length and create a standard curve.

A hike through several biomes and
collection and identification of
aquatic macroinvertebrates allowed all students to practice the
concepts they had presented in

Principal’s Report (Lori Neurohr)
Elementary News
6 students in the 2/3 split participated in the Continental
Math League. A couple times per week during Bomber
Time students worked on solving challenging, multiple
step and higher level math problems. They completed
three in-class “math meets,” (one in January, one in February, and one in March) and submitted results to the national program. The top two point earners in each grade
received medals and all participants earned participation
ribbons.  Mrs. Roeber will have her students continue to
work on practice problems for the rest of the school year
to begin their preparation for next year! Mrs. Roeber has
also expressed interest in starting a 4th and 5th grade
after school math team next year using the Continental
Math League’s 4th and 5th grade program.
Our elementary students have been very busy in Spanish
this year.  Our littlest learners, the 5-year old Kindergarteners have been learning greetings, the numbers 110, and color, food and body vocabulary terms.  At each
grade level, Betty adds more vocabulary and practice conversing in Spanish.  By the time students finish fifth
grade, students are able to identify  names of characters
from the story, identify oneself in Spanish as a boy or girl,
ask who are you, identify on self by name,  & practiced
saying short phrases introducing themselves.  They have
practiced asking, “Who is he? Who is she? What is that?
and are able to answer those questions. They have reviewed body parts and  the 5 senses.  They have learned

12:30 pm at Kohler
Village Hall
Joseph J. Krueger Award
Deputy Clerk/Treasurer Cindi Gamb was
given the Joseph J. Krueger Award at the annual meeting of the Municipal Treasurers
Association of Wisconsin at their Conference in April 2015. The purpose of the
Joseph J. Krueger Award is to formally recognize an active member of the Municipal
Treasurers Association who has made an
outstanding contribution to his/her profession and/or outstanding contributions to the
general welfare of his/her community.
The Association of Public Treasurers of
the United States and Canada President
Helen Schmidlkofer; Village of Kohler
Deputy Clerk-Treasurer Cindi Gamb; and
Municipal Treasurers Association of Wisconsin President Cindy Hegglund.

All meetings are held at Kohler Village Hall,
319 Highland Drive, unless otherwise indicated.

There are residents in the Village that have
been targeted by scam artists. The most
common tactic lately has been a caller identifying themselves as the IRS. They threaten
the homeowner that they will call the police/sheriff and have them arrested if they
don’t pay the judgments against them. The
phone’s caller ID may even state IRS. These
are NOT legitimate calls. Do not give them
any money. Hang up as soon as you can.
They may have left a message if you were
out. Do not call them back. The IRS does not
phone people about judgments and we
would not pick you up for the IRS. Even
calling back some of these scam artists will
cost you. For example, by calling a (876)
area code, you will be charged up to
$10/minute. If you get targeted by one of
these or another attempt to swindle you of
your money and have questions, call our department for advice, 920-459-3877. For
more information you can go to the IRS

Bike Safety Day
The Kohler Police Department is again
sponsoring the Bike Safety Day on Saturday
June 6th at 12:30 pm. The event is being
held at the Village Hall. Licenses are required and are available for $2.50 for any
bikes with wheels larger than 16.” Anyone
that needs a license can download the bike
license form from
and have it filled out before you arrive.
There will be forms available the day of, but
it would make that portion go more quickly.
All participants will receive an inspection of
their bike, a free helmet and a bike accessory. We will also be supplying free soda
and chips after the day’s events.

Kohler Pool
The indoor and outdoor pools (weather
permitting) will start summer hours Friday,
June 12. The pools will be open daily from
1:30 – 7:00 pm.

Noxious Weeds/Grass Length
According to Village Ordinance 8.24, it is
the duty of every homeowner to destroy all
noxious weeds on their property before they
go to seed. Examples of noxious weeds are
Canadian thistle, English charlock, wild
mustard, creeping jenny, goatsbeard and cotton-bearing trees.
Also, grass that exceeds nine-inches in
height is in violation of this ordinance. The
Village gives a five-day notice to the homeowner to mow their grass. Otherwise, the
Village will do it at the expense of the homeowner.
Garage Sale Signs
One temporary “garage sale” or “for sale”
sign shall be permitted on each lot or parcel.
Signs located on public property will be removed by the Public Works Department or
Police Department.
Reporting of Illicit Discharge
It is a requirement in the Village of Kohler
Storm water permit with the DNR to educate
the Public on illicit discharges to the storm
water system. An illicit discharge would be
the dumping of any chemical, pet waste, or
hazardous substance into the street or a
storm basin inlet. The substance would
eventually make its way into the Sheboygan
River causing a pollution hazard. To report
an illicit discharge, please call the Public
Works office at 920-459-3881.
