School Board President Marlene Yang leaves
district in a position of strength, paves way
for the future

By Quynh Trueblood,
Superintendent of Schools
Marlene Yang concludes her
final term on the Kohler School
Board in April. Ms. Yang served
a total of 6 years, 4 years as President. Presiding over her final
meeting on March 14, President
Yang thanked the community for
putting its trust in her and nodded to past board members with
whom she served alongside: Dr.
Jane Bishop, Laura Kohler, John
Suralik, Diane Kelly, Matt Kautzer, and Nancy Case.
Christina Koberstein, Vice President, recognized Ms. Yang for
her years of service and presented a plaque to stand proudly on
Ebben Field alongside the plagues
of long standing board members
Laura Kohler, John Suralik and
Diane Kelly, the original designers of the current strategic plan
and each instrumental in the success of the Ebben Field Phase II

project. Ms. Koberstein remarked,
“Marlene’s wisdom, foresight,
and dedication has steered the
district through many changes in
education over the past six years,”
and that Ms. Yang’s leadership
places the new board in a strong
position.
Ms. Yang’s leadership laid
building blocks on which the future of the district rests. These
building blocks include setting
the vision of the five-year strategic plan, navigating through the
impact of ACT 10, onboarding
and retaining a superintendent and
principal, achieving National Blue
Ribbon recognition, directing the
board’s energies through the continued dynamic political environment and new school laws, maintaining fiscal health through state
budget reductions, supporting
the Ebben Field Phase II project,
completing the first professional
handbooks, implementing a best-

in-class teacher compensation
structure, and leading the structural reorganization of administrators to support quality teaching.
Ms. Yang wished the new board
success and offered her continued
support along with an experienced
point of view, “When board members with differing viewpoints, experiences, and opinions are able to
work together, the synergies that
are created can be unbelievably
effective in setting the strategic
direction of the school district.”
In a final address to the school
faculty and staff on March 16,
Ms. Yang confirmed that the district has met the challenges of the
past six years head on and with a
good amount of success. Calling
attention to meeting a challenge,
Ms. Yang noted, “My challenge
to each of you at the beginning of
the year was – to reach and engage
these types of students – not just
the best and brightest or loudest –

they are the relatively easy ones,
but to reach and engage these “invisible” students. Several of you
have come to me, and told me
how that story has inspired you. I
am deeply and personally grateful
for that. If any group of educators
has the power to succeed here, I
believe you do.”
In a closing remark to Ms. Yang,
Superintendent Quynh Trueblood
shared, “Together we have accomplished important work. You
have been the most visible and
present President. You leave us
with a legacy of a Blue Ribbon
School District. Thank you for always leading in the best interest of
students, staff and community.”
The district and community are
grateful for Ms. Yang’s outstanding service to Kohler Schools and
for the benefit from her continued
active support of our schools.

future options and opportunities
for growth for the village! We
need to be able to sustain the high
quality of life enjoyed by villagers. Keeping taxes in check will be
a challenge we’ll need to address
and it is my desire to find amicable solutions without undue pressure. A formula for future property tax assessments will need to be
carefully considered. Additional
input into these matters, from village residents, is important to me
and to be encouraged. We will
also need to continue to work with
our police department, fire department, and others to assure a safe
and secure village for all of its’
residents.

Kohler freshmen Cindy Zheng
accepted to distinguished
summer camp at Harvard
By Clara Montes
The National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC)’s prestigious summer programs provide
high school students with experiences to ready them for future
colleges and careers. The subjects
of the programs vary from business to performing arts, yet their
excellent camps for medicine and
health care remain the most well
renowned. They allow students
to participate in activities simulating real life practices such as
techniques used in surgical procedures, clinical examinations, and
diagnostic and treatment of patients. In addition, students attending learn about today’s healthcare
challenges and explore advanced

scientific research in areas such as
cancer and HIV/AIDS.
Cindy Zheng, a Kohler High
School freshman, has been accepted into the NSC’s summer medical
program, taking place on the campus of Harvard Medical School
in Boston. Cindy’s hard working
efforts and achievements in her
education have paid off, allowing
her to become involved in activities which will jump start her efforts in reaching her goal of going
into the medical field. Ms. Krejcarek and Ms. Sheets, teachers at
Kohler High School, both made it
possible for Cindy to participate in
this program by writing letters of
recommendations. They say, “She
Loves Science.”

Kohler doctor dancing for
Movers & Shakers
Dr. Carolyn Baxter, a psychiatrist at Prevea Healthcare and a
resident of Kohler will be competing in this year’s Movers &
Shakers Gala on May 14, 2016.
She and her partner, Jay Morth,
will perform an east coast swing
routine.
Carolyn’s
selected
charity, Nourish, is a farm-to-family philanthropy that links local
sustainable farms with kids and
families that are struggling with
hunger. Nourish is a good-food
lifestyle initiative. Visit nourishfarms.org.
The board-certified psychiatrist
also teaches at Yoga on the Lake
in Kohler. “The foundation of
wellness is healthy food, exercise,
stress management, sleep, social support and spirituality,” she
says. “Yoga fits into all of that. It
covers exercise, stress reduction

and, if you attend classes, social
support. I always sleep better and
make better food choices when I
keep up my yoga practice. As a
mother of three with a full-time
job, I think yoga keeps me sane.”
As for the Movers & Shakers
Gala, Carolyn says she’s wanted
to dance since she first heard of
the event in 2011. There are three
other reasons she wants to hit the
floor and shine. “I’m doing this
for my children, too,” she says.
“I want to show them they should
dream big, work hard and go for
it!”
Consider attending and casting a vote for Carolyn during her
Community Votes Party at the
Kohler Village Hall on Saturday,
April 16 from 7:00 pm - 11:00
pm, or online at moversandshakersgala.org/dancers/Carolyn-Baxter/

If Carolyn is the gala champion, Nourish will be the 2017 partnering charity and will receive
$10,000. Votes are $20 and are tax
deductible.

Doggy Sanitation Stations to be
installed around Kohler by Girl Scout
By Frannie Hillstrom
Eight Dog Sanitation Stations
are planned to be installed in late
June through the work of one local teen Girl Scout, Frannie Hillstrom. “Each station will consist
of biodegradable dog bags and
a waste can for dog owners to
clean up after their pets,” said
Hillstrom who is working towards completing her Girl Scout
Gold Award Project, which is
the highest award in Girl Scouting. The stations will potentially
be located by Ebben Field, Lost

Woods, Dog Bone Park, Woodlake, and the Ravine. To earn
money, she has put together a
group of friends to serve as the
Scoop the Poop Team. This team
can be hired to clean up your
yard of winter’s accumulated dog
waste in exchange for sponsoring
her Doggy Sanitation Stations in
an amount you feel the service
performed is worth. Schedule the
Scoop the Poop Team for your
yard by calling (920) 254-1750.
Did you know that dog feces
contributes to contaminated wa-

ter? An environmental concern
for the Village of Kohler is the
lack of care to clean up after your
pet(s), many view dog feces as
fertilizer, it’s not. Dog feces can
cause illness in both humans
and other pets. Feces may contain parvovirus, roundworms,
hookworms, whip worms, thread
worms, giardia, and coccidia.
When it is not cleaned up, these
parasites will then run into the
sewer system, thus infecting the
drinking water and soil.

Procedures for school
closings due to
inclement weather

We ask parents to discuss this issue
with their child now – before the actual
emergency occurs. If you are generally
not home during the day, be sure your
child knows where he/she is to go if
school closes early. Will he/she go home
with a classmate, an older sibling, or a
relative? Have you made prior arrangements with this individual to be on “stand
by” for these occasions? Please make
your arrangements in advance and make
sure your child is fully aware of what to
do in case school closes early.
Any decision to close school for all
or any portion of a school day will be
made as early as possible in order to afford parents the opportunity to make
alternate child care plans. All closing
announcements or early dismissals will
be made on the Kohler School web site
kohlerpublicschools.org and the following area radio/television stations:
Radio
WHBL (1330 AM),
THE POINT (104.5 OR
96.1 FM),

Superintendent’s Report
(Quynh Trueblood)
KOHLER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL RECOGNITION
I am proud to announce Kohler Elementary School has earned the 2015-16
Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition
Award for High Achievement from the
Department of Public Instruction. This
recognition means the faculty, staff, and
families of Kohler Elementary School
are closing the achievement gap for
students. Together, we are changing the
course of children’s lives by helping them
be good readers and math thinkers.
Three years ago, the district with
financial support from the Kohler School
Foundation, put in place three systemic
pieces and is getting a good return on our
investment:

2. Multilevel System of Supports for
Academics (RtI) and Behaviors (PBISBomber Pride) under the skillful direction
of Dr. Cindy Payne
3. Evidenced based resources purchased

14 at the State Capital.
I am proud of our work and especially of
the children and their families who are
thriving from hard work and support.
PREPARING STUDENT FOR THE FUTURE
Kohler Schools is preparing students
college and career.
The Sheboygan County workforce development efforts continue. The Sheboygan
Economic Development Corporation in
partnership with the Sheboygan Chamber
of Commerce have launched a branding
campaign for the county, titled “Someplace Better,” to address the current
reality that while Sheboygan County’s
job market is the fastest growing the
state, employers can not find workers
to presently fill 1,600 jobs. At the
latest Chamber Friday Forum, Governor
Walker applauded the county’s efforts and
representatives of the county’s largest
employers, Kohler Co, Sargento, Acuity,
and Aurora, stated they are looking for
workers. Someplace Better is the name
of the website containing key selling
points, including schools, for prospective
workers to choose Sheboygan County as a
place to live, work, and community build.
Elementary Principal’s Report
(Lisa Greene)
The Elementary teachers remain hard
at work. The weather has been pretty
good, so the children have been able to
get outside on a fairly regular basis. We
follow DPI suggested guidelines of 0℉ If
either the actual temperature or wind
chill is below 0℉, the children will stay
indoors. We monitor the weather for
temperature and precipitation throughout
the day.
PBIS
The Elementary Students have earned
over $14,000 worth of Bomber
Bucks. Students can use their Bomber
Bucks to purchase items at the PBIS store
called The Hangar. We have designed
our PBIS reward system to align with the
elementary Personal Finance Literacy
standards.
When we hit a benchmark, students earn
a school wide celebration.
We previously had a game day and this
week we will have our 2nd schoolwide
celebration.
For being extra good, the students will
receive a week of “Extras” for our PBIS
celebration.
Today, students received an extra piece
of gum.
On Tuesday, the students will be able to
wear an extra piece of clothing- they can
wear a hat for hat day.
On Wednesday, they will receive an extra
snack- popcorn.
On Thursday, they can be extra comfy
with a pajama day.
And on Friday, they will receive an extra
recess. They were really excited about
this one and I hope the weather is nice so
it is extra fun for them!

MS-HS Principal Report
(Timothy Brown)
Kohler Public Schools Strategic Plan
As part of our last phase of the 2012-16
Kohler Public Schools Strategic Plan, we
are reflecting on best practices surrounding homework to help our students inspire, engage and achieve.. The Strategic
Action Plan specifically detailed to A) Reinforce the Student-Life Balance Initiative
by establishing a common purpose for
homework to deepen understanding. B)
Study current best practices in homework
on professional development days, and C)
Implement and document a school-wide
homework philosophy at the High School.
Our staff is committed to reviewing policy
and improving our delivery of services.
The first step toward reviewing our
philosophy on homework was done at our
February 10th All-Staff meeting where we
reviewed our Strategic Action Plan, discussed peer-reviewed research, as well
as incorporated data from the Community
Survey Results to set the framework for
our discussion. At our February 10th
meeting, each teacher at the Elementary,
Middle, and High School went through an
exercise to identify their top 3 purposes
as well as their top benefits of homework. We then disaggregated that data
to each school where they began to use
data to determine a general philosophy
of homework, and how we can marry the
purposes and benefits together.
Most recently we used a large chunk of
our Professional Development morning to
have a larger discussion around creating
a collective foundation of what homework
looks like at each school. We are using
best practice research to to close the gap
between our current practice to create
future best practices that align with our
shared philosophy.
While we are not there yet, we are
on schedule to hone in on a shared
philosophy and best practices we can
all agree to, one that we support, and
can document to help all students in our
learning community become inspired,
engaged and achieve.
Staffing
The Kohler School District is also
committed to find and retain the highest
quality staff and to continue the work of
the School-Life Balance Initiative. The
defining piece of this initiative is in the
creation of a search committee to replace
our outgoing Activities Director. At this
point we have identified the mechanics of
this search in terms of timeline, interview
team, the vetting of the highly qualified
candidates and the interview dates.
However, beyond the mechanics, we
are searching for someone to help grow
our school culture around athletics and
activities. We are looking for someone
who understands the unique attributes of
the Village of Kohler, has a global vision
of the student-athlete, someone who
is visible and accessible to the public.
Someone who is positive yet firm, someone who has a high level view of an entire
k-12 athletic programming. Someone
who is knowledgeable of development
of appropriate skills at the appropriate
levels. Someone who knows that the
definition of success is not just in the
Wins and Losses column. There are many
attributes to this position that I could go
on, but I am of the opinion that this is a
high leverage position, one who we want
to truly find the correct fit for our system.

I believe we have a good team assembled
and will make every effort to find the best
candidate.

Drug Take Back Initiative
On April 30, 2016, the State of Wisconsin is holding a Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative being held throughout
Wisconsin. The green drug box in the department’s lobby is
open for drop offs every day. The goal is to provide a safe,
convenient, and responsible means of disposal of prescription
medications. Unused prescription medications in homes create a public health and safety concern, because they can be
accidentally ingested, stolen, misused, and abused. Unused
or expired medicine should never be flushed or poured down
the drain. Removing potentially dangerous pharmaceutical
substances from our state’s medicine cabinets helps to prevent them from going into our water supply. Water reclamation facilities are not designed to remove all of them and trace

Greenfield Drive Crosswalk
Be aware of the new crosswalk on Greenfield Drive and the
potential that with the warmer weather students may be using
it to and from school. All crosswalks require that the driver
yield to the pedestrian in the crosswalk. This crosswalk will
alert the driver to their presence when activated by the pedestrian. Parents should advise their children to use this crosswalk
instead of the crosswalk by Church Street. This area has fewer
lanes to cross and has the added safety of the flashing lights.

(Fees Required)
Sheboygan County has established four collection sites for
disposing of hazardous wastes. The majority of the program

of residency. When those funds are depleted, the sites will be
closed until funds are again available.

disposed of with regular garbage once dried. Simply
remove the cover to let it dry up, or pour it out in a container and add kitty litter to help it dry.
