Kohler U-6 Soccer
Continues Strong
Submitted by: Kohler Soccer Club
The Kohler Soccer Club contin-
ues to see high numbers of kids
joining the soccer program. The U-
6 program is no exception with a
record of 42 kids playing this fall.
It is a perfect first sport for the 4
and 5 year olds. It is fun, great ex-
ercise, and the kids love to be part
of a team. Kids can feel good
about themselves because they can
dribble the ball, score goals and, of
course, they love to run off all that
kindergarten energy.
The U-6 program was started
over 14 years ago by a group of
dedicated soccer parents who saw
the need and knew soccer was a
sport that the Kohler community
could support and someday excel
in. Players of all sizes and skill lev-
els can fit together to form a suc-
cessful team. Kohler High School
has proven that with its years of
success at the Varsity level.
However, the U6 program
would not be as strong as it is
today without the high school
players. Each fall and spring, high
school soccer players volunteer
their time to help coach the U-6
program. Parent and U-6 head
coach, Kristin Morehouse says,
She was shocked to learn that
busy high school players would
volunteer their time to the pro-
gram. They were extremely help-
ful, very mature, and the little kids
LOVED playing with the older
This year started a new tradition
for the soccer program that builds
upon the strong tie between the U-
6 and high school players. Hand in
hand, the U-6 players escorted the
Kohler Boys Varsity Soccer Team
onto the field for the National An-
them during the Friday Night
Lights soccer game. It was a spe-
cial moment for all the players, but
extra special for Aidan Case, Anna
Becker, and Melanie Pellegrino
who escorted their older brothers
who play for the Varsity team. The
U-6 kids also had the privilege of
scrimmaging under the lights be-
fore the game started. Soccer in
Kohler continues to grow and
build on what was started over 14
years ago.

Driving Conditions
Now that winter is back upon us, we all
have to remember to drive more carefully.
Even though some vehicles seem to handle
better in the snowy conditions, remember
to give yourself more distance between ve-
hicles when stopping. Big SUVs can get
going faster with 4-wheel drive, but have
the same problems stopping on slick roads.
Snow banks can reduce visibility, so be
aware of pedestrians. If a vehicle is
parked outside, remember to clear the win-
dows. Proper visibility is extremely impor-
tant, especially with children crossing the
streets early in the morning. Also, remem-
ber that getting ready in the winter takes
more time, so to avoid having to rush, plan
Snow is on the Way
The Village of Kohler doesnt have winter
parking regulations like many other com-
munities with parking on the even or odd
side of the street throughout the winter
months. That is typically done so if it
snows the communities can completely
clear the streets after the snowstorms over
two days. Instead, we just rely on residents
moving their vehicles promptly after
snowstorms. Also, just a reminder that it is
illegal to blow snow into the Village
streets. Helping out in these areas makes
our streets cleaner and safer during the
winter season.

Garbage Pickup
During the Holidays garbage pickup will
be on Wednesday, December 26 and
Wednesday, January 2.
Christmas Tree Pickup
Christmas trees are considered yard waste
per Veolia and will be picked up with the
regular garbage on Tuesdays. Please re-
move all decorations and bags.
Snow Emergency
To find out if a snow emergency is in ef-
fect for the Village, call 459-3881 or visit
the Village website at There is no park-
ing on village streets during a snow emer-
gency. A snow emergency is called when
accumulation is expected to exceed four
Snow Removal
Here are some reminders on Village snow
removal ordinances and policies.
1. Please remember to shovel your side-
walks within 24 hours after a snowfall
2. Do not blow or shovel snow back into
the street.
3. When plows are in operation, please do
not park on the street. Avoid parking
across from other cars as this narrows the
street and plow equipment cannot get
through. When it is snowing on garbage
days, please do not put containers in the
Snow Removal Around Kiosks
It is the residents responsibility to have
the snow removed around the
kiosks/NDCBU (neighborhood delivery
and collection box unit)/cluster boxes. The
Postal Service will not deliver mail if the
carrier is not able to reach the unit the
front as well as the back. Someone in the
unit/neighborhood needs to take the initia-
tive to remove the snow; or maybe the re-
sponsibility can be shared within the unit.
The Village is not responsible to keep
these areas clear of snow.
Job Posting
The Village of Kohler is posting a position
for a full-time public works maintenance
worker. For job qualifications, application,

Recycle Electronics Instead of Trashing
Them This Holiday Season
By Bridgett Valdez-Kogle, DNR
The holidays often bring new electronic
toys big-screen TVs, smartphones, lap-
tops and more. When you find that shiny
new gadget under the tree, you may want
to get rid of some of the old electronics
gathering dust.
Under Wisconsins electronics recycling
law, many electronics cannot be put in the
trash. The E-Cycle Wisconsin program,
funded by electronics manufacturers, of-
fers electronics recycling options in many
parts of the state.
Electronics contain harmful materials like
mercury, lead, cadmium and other heavy
metals, as well as chemical flame retar-
dants. When disposed of improperly, these
pollutants can post a risk to human and en-
vironmental health.
Electronics also contain valuable, reusable
materials, including steel, plastic, gold, sil-
ver, copper and glass. Properly recycling
these materials reduces the need for new
raw materials.
Electronics are resources that are too
valuable to waste, and we can help both
our economy and the environment by recy-
cling them, said Ann Coakley, director of
DNRs Waste and Materials Management
This is an exciting opportunity for many
of us in Wisconsin to recycle our electron-
ics more easily and at a lower cost, Coak-
ley said.
The following electronics are banned
from landfills and incinerators
Computers (desktop, laptop, netbooks
and table computers)
Desktop printers (including those that
scan, fax and/or copy)
Computer monitors
DVD players, VCRs and DVRS
Fax machines
Computer mice and keyboards
Other computer accessories such as hard
drives, speakers, flash drives and
Cell phones
Electronic waste is the fastest growing part
of waste in the United States. There are
millions of pounds of electronic waste in
Wisconsin alone, so make sure you recycle

consin, including a full list of collection

Testing the Waters
Submitted by Dana Krejcarek
This science enrichment pro-
gram allows students to partic-
ipate in a community service
project which encourages them
to employ both biology and
chemistry skills. Students ac-
tively share in collecting, ana-
lyzing, and interpreting biology
and chemistry data related to
the water quality of the Sheboy-
gan River. Kohler students test
a site on the river near Black
Wolf Run Golf Course.
Students from the county ex-
perience the scope of the She-
boygan River Watershed via a
bus tour at the beginning of
each school year. This year we
are working with the Great
Lakes Area of Concern Pro-
gram, along with Camp Y-
Coda, and UW-Sheboygan
water quality extension. Water
quality specialists explain the
many facets of the watershed
with stops at many locations
along the tour. All area schools
then gather at Camp Y-Coda
where each student learns how
to accurately conduct each of
the tests. Some of the tests in-
clude dissolved oxygen, pH,
temperature, total phosphates,
nitrates, turbidity, total solids,
fecal coliform, and macroinver-
tebrates. The data collection
portion of this program allows
students to competently con-
duct water quality tests and ac-
curately report data.
Students then may identify
community issues to study.
Water test results are sent to the
local Department of Natural
Resources. Since other Sheboy-
gan County schools test differ-
ent areas of the river all of the
results are shared at a forum in
the spring at Camp Y-Coda.
Along with presenting the data,
students suggest explanations
for their findings, and work to-
gether to explore possible ac-
tion plans that might have a
positive impact on the areas
land conservation and the envi-
ronment. Students attend ses-
sions where water quality
experts provide extensive infor-

Alyca Arentsen, the Kohler Li-
brary Media Specialist, is proud to
announce a very successful Book
Fair this year. Profits made from
the fair will go to enhancing the li-
brary with new books and special
technology items and materials.
A very special thank you from
Mrs. Arentsen to all the many vol-
unteers (parents, grandparents, stu-
dents) that helped to make this a
very special and successful event.
We could not have done it without
all your help.
The school district must locate, identify, and evaluate all children with disabilities, including children with disabilities attending private
schools in the school district, regardless of the severity of their disabilities. The school district has a special education screening program
to evaluate all children with suspected disabilities and are at least three years old. Upon request, the school district will screen a child
who has not graduated high school to determine whether a special education referral is appropriate. A request may be made by con-
tacting the Special Education Director at 459-2920.

Kohler Physics Students and Fourth
Graders experience learning together
Recently, fourth grade students
were invited to attend a special
physics class taught by the senior
students of Ms. Dana Krejcarek.
Their objective was to explain the
physics of sports in an age-appro-
priate manner. They dressed in
sport-appropriate gear and de-
signed visuals to support their in-
formation. Fourth graders learned
about Newtons three laws and
the physics involved in bowling,
rowing, badminton, skating, cy-
cling, golf, dodge ball, softball,
and ping pong.
Students were very engaged
and found learning about the laws
of physics fun and easy. Great job
