Planning underway for Ebben Blue Bomber Field renovation phase II athletes excel in
The vision for Ebben Field is to provide an athletic facility that will complement the tradition of academic excellence Kohler Public Schools are known for, while supporting efforts to attract and retain the area’s best students. Equally important are the benefits these improvements will bring to the Village of Kohler Recreation Department, whose programs serve all Village residents and comprise nearly fifty percent of current Ebben field utilization. The much needed renovations and improvements will provide a highquality athletic complex for the students and families of Kohler Public Schools and the community of Kohler for many years into the future. In 2008, the Ebben Field renovation began with a generous donation of $1 million from Kohler Co. The company’s contribution to Phase I brought new stadium seating, field lights, long jump and high jump pits, and sixty percent completion of track resurfacing. Planning is now underway to begin Phase II of the Ebben Field renovation. Over the past several months, Kohler Public Schools and the Village of Kohler have worked closely to develop a cost-effective plan that would best fit the longterm needs of the community. The primary improvements include: • renovation of the concession area and restrooms; • renovation and reconfiguration of the soccer fields; • completion of the track with a state-of-the-art rubberized surface; • reconfiguration of the baseball diamonds, shot put and discus areas. To make Phase II a reality, financial support is needed for the $525,000 in improvements planned for Phase II. Currently, $150,000 has been generously pledged from Kohler Public Schools and various school and community organizations. However, in order to begin, an additional $220,000 must be raised. A committee has been established to ensure the success of this project. The committee is currently seeking individual, family, corporate, and foundation donors who support the future vision for Ebben Field and wish to contribute to its success. Every gift counts towards achieving this vision and, as always, is greatly appreciated. A donor designated fund has been established by Kohler Public Schools to accept Ebben Field donations. All donations are fully tax deductible. Interested parties may contact Doug Bocchini at or 920-803-7205.

Girl Scouts raise money for cancer awareness
Submitted by Girl Scout Cadette Troop 8731 We are Girl Scout Troop 8731 and recently we completed our Girl Scout Silver Award project. Earlier in the school year, we decided on a topic that was important to us. The medical field is a big concern in today’s world. There’s a certain branch that touched every one in our troop, cancer. We decided to raise money and awareness for all forms of cancer. The troop decided to host a bake sale and “Hats On” day at Kohler School. Ms. Lewinski kindly donated her time and classroom for us to bake over 300 cupcakes. We sold them during elementary, middle, and high school lunch hours. We also made cancer awareness pins. Our troop hand made each pin during a couple of our previous meetings. Each colored pin represented a type of cancer. Students and teachers would buy the pins in support of loved ones who were affected by cancer. Student stories touched our hearts when they shared the reasons for supporting our cause. It really opened our eyes

We are proud to welcome Vicki da Silva to our staff. Her enthusiasm and over 15 years of Customer Service & Marketing experience will only add to our already great list of services:

to see how many people have been affected by this widespread disease. We made extra pins that we donated to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic in Sheboygan on February 4, National Cancer Awareness Day. Overall, the troop spent 52 hours on the project and we raised over $200. We donated the money to St. Baldrick’s Foundation, through our friends who were brave enough to shave their heads in support of childhood cancer. Troop 8731 wants to thank everyone who helped support our project.

finish in the 400-meter run (1:04.38) and a fourth place in the 800-meter run (2:36.19). At sectionals on May 23 at Princeton, Brett Mueller was a double qualifier for the Division 3 WIAA State Track and Field Championships, which will be held in La Crosse May 31 and June 1. Mueller finished second in the 300-meter low hurdles with a time of 41.18 and fourth in the 110meter high hurdles with a time of 15.85. Mueller’s time in the low hurdles will make him the 6-seed at the state meet. Although Joe Pellowski was not able to qualify at the sectional, his personal best time of 51.08 during the season was easily fast enough to earn him a trip to La Crosse, where he will be the 7-seed. The girls will be represented at state by Mari Marzano, who claimed fourth place in the shot put at the Princeton sectional, with a distance of 32-3.

Golf team,
By Kevin Struck The Kohler Blue Bombers high school boys golf team ran away with the Central Lakeshore Conference 2013 title thanks to a stellar showing at the conference tournament on May 16 at Blackwolf Run’s demanding Meadow Valley course. The team, which had gone 7-1 during the regular season’s duals to tie for the top spot with Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah, left no doubt about the overall championship when it posted a score of 346 to easily top the second place finishers, Howards Grove and Oostburg, who each posted 367. The title was Kohler’s third straight CLC championship. With pins tucked close to hazards on most holes, high scores were the rule. The only player to break 80 on the 18-hole course was first-team all-conference and CLC Player of the Year Logan Willis of Kohler, who carded an impressive 79. Nick Scheppmann, a secondteam all-conference player for the Blue Bombers, had a strong round, tying for third with an 85. Another second-team all-conference honoree, Derek Egbert shot a very respectable 92. Although narrowly missing conference honors, Jess Dyksterhouse and Andrew Bryce also were near the top of the field,

By Kevin Struck Several Blue Bombers qualified for sectionals by finishing in the top four in their events at the Division 3 high school boys and girls regionals for track and field held in Hilbert on May 20. For the boys, Brett Mueller had a busy day, taking first in the 300-meter low hurdles with a time of 41.67, second in the 110-meter high hurdles (17.54) and third in the long jump with a leap of 19-2½. Joe Pellowski claimed a regional championship in the 400-meter run with a clocking of 51.45. Pellowski also took third in the 200-meter dash (23.98). The girls were paced by Valerie Linck’s first place finish in the 300-meter low hurdles (49.87). Kayleigh Zittel took second place in the shot put, narrowly out-distancing teammate Mari Marzano by four inches with a throw of 336. Courtney Rutten secured her spot at sectionals with a third place

posting scores of 90 and 92, respectively. On May 22, Kohler won the rain-shortened (9 holes) Division 3 regional at Hickory Hills by a comfortable 22 strokes to advance to its ninth straight sectional. For the ninth time this season (a new school record), Logan Willis earned medalist honors, with the

low score of 38. Nick Scheppmann was right behind with a 39, and Andrew Bryce and Jess Dyksterhouse completed the Blue Bombers’ domination by tying for third with scores of 41. Out of the nine teams participating, with 45 golfers total, the Blue Bombers had the top four scores and five out the top eight.

Kohler varsity basketball team earns second team Academic All-State
On Monday, May 13, 2013 Kohler head boys basketball coach Ken Roeder was notified by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association that the Varsity Blue Bombers had earned a secondteam Academic All-State award for their performance in the classroom. The team’s overall GPA took into account the 15 members of the varsity roster. Varsity players included Tyler Lewis, Greg Suralik, James Misfeldt, Connor Hogan, Nick Scheppmann, Nate Tures, Brennan Ladwig, Phil Case, Brett Mueller, Joe Pellowski, Cody Gartman, Calvin Stefanczyk, Eric Bauer, Noah Fink, and Dominic Bocchini. The total number of credits earned by each player and their individual overall GPA to this point in high school, were the data points used to calculate the team’s GPA. This year’s team had an overall GPA of 3.54. That was second in Division 5 behind CochraneFountain City (3.71 GPA) and twelfth out of the top 15 schools earning Academic All-State honors this season in all divisions. “Congratulations to the Bombers for their fine work in the classroom! We look forward to more success both on and off the court next season,” said Roeder.

Tennis trio,
Kohler Blue Bombers high school boys tennis team members Tyler Lewis, Tim Valicenti, and Kyle Struck qualified for the Division 2 WIAA State Individual Tennis Championships to be held May 30 – June 1 in Madison. All three players, now seniors, also played at state as freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Kohler’s #1 singles player, Tyler Lewis, will enter the state tournament as the top seed in the field of 32 with a stellar 25-0 record – the only unbeaten #1 singles player in Division 2. In fact, Lewis has not even lost a set this season. He completed his current run with a 76, 6-4 victory over Green Bay Notre Dame’s Scott Wall in the sectional final.

Valicenti and Struck, the #1 doubles team for Kohler, are the only doubles team in Division 1 or 2 in at least the last decade to have qualified all four years. They qualified this year with a 19-6 record and a 6-0, 6-2 win over Appleton Xavier at sectionals on May 23. The pair will seek to improve on last year’s sixth place medal. Kohler’s #3 singles player, John Tengowski, upset the 3-seed at subsectionals, 6-0, 6-0 before falling to the eventual sectional

champ, Plymouth’s Inigo AcedoFerandez. The team enjoyed a #10 state ranking in Division 2 for much of the season and finished with an overall record of 13-5, including 6-3 in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference, which was good for 4th place. Varsity players with winning records were Andrew Grose at #2 singles (15-7) and the #2 doubles tandem of Noah Fink and Calvin Stefanczyk (11-9).

Police Chief Bill Rutten
Accident Reports Change: Due to the Drivers Privacy Protection Act (1994) the Kohler Police Department will no longer provide both drivers’ information on copies of accident reports. The DPPA prohibits the release of personal information obtained from the DMV. For many years, departments in Wisconsin had been releasing copies of accident reports based upon an exception in our states open records laws. A recent ruling on a court case in Illinois (Senne v Palatine) has necessitated the changes. We will obviously still be recording the incidents; however the officers now will be encouraging citizens to exchange names at the time of a crash.

Call to Order Marlene Yang called the meeting to order at 7:09 p.m. in the District Office Conference Room. Roll Call was taken by Laura Kohler. The following board members were present: Marlene Yang, Diane Kelly, Laura Kohler, Matt Kautzer and John Suralik. Statement of Public Notice April 26, 2013 Approval of Agenda Diane Kelly moved to approve the agenda. Laura Kohler seconded the motion. All ayes. Board President’s Report Marlene, Matt and the teachers attended the educator effectiveness meeting with Judy Sargent on April 10. The state is mandating several programs to be implemented in the next two to four years. Superintendent’s Report STATE MANDATES • Educator effectiveness is one of the mandated components of Agenda 2017, the State’s school reform Initiative. • Districts must implement the system of professional growth and accountability in 2014-15. • Educator Effectiveness will be determined by 2 measures: 50% educator practice and 50% student outcomes. • The educator practice will be based on a model of core teaching and administrative standards and Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for teachers and principals. • The student outcomes will be based on the new state test called the Smarter Balanced Assessment (currently known as the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Exam WKCE) also to the administered in May of 2014-15 and reflecting national cut point for proficiency. The new test is aligned to the Common Core State Standards. • Teachscape, an on-line training, assessment and evaluation management system will be used to enter all evaluation and outcome data and will be coordinated to upload to the state information system. • Teachers and principals are required to establish measurable SMART goals for students and schools as part of the Student Outcome data for evaluation. IMPACT ON DISTRICT Professional Development focus in 201314 will be on Educator Effectiveness, new state test (Smarter Balanced Assessment), and Common Core State Standards, which we have made progress on this year in Math and ELA.

Junior Achievement survey reveals confidence in teen summer job prospects
Sheboygan, WI – Junior Achievement USA’s 2013 Teens and Summer Jobs survey reveals a teen population confident in its ability to find summer work, despite a 24percent unemployment rate. The national survey of 14-18 year olds shows that nearly two-thirds (63 percent) plan to get a job this summer, and of those, 92 percent are “very” or “somewhat” confident they will find seasonal work. Yet only 38 percent of teens surveyed said they had a summer job in the past. In a similar survey conducted among Wisconsin teens, 87% were confident they would find summer employment, and 39% had had a summer job in the past. When asked how they planned to find summer jobs, teens’ top three methods of finding work were networking through their parents’ connections (47 percent), using online job postings (33 percent), and looking in store windows for “now hiring” signs (32 percent). Among Wisconsin teens, the three most popular methods were networking through their parents’ connections (52 percent), using online job postings (21 percent) or working at a family or friend’s business (18 percent). Nationally, three-quarters (72 percent) of those teens who plan to work this summer said they anticipate earning between $7.25 and $10 per hour. This compares to 37% of Wisconsin teens who said they planned to earn between $7.25 and $10 an hour. However, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, among employed teenagers paid by the hour, more than one-in-five (21 percent) earned the minimum wage or less in 2012, compared with about 3 percent of workers age 25 and over. Tim Greinert, President of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin said, “We applaud teens for seeking summer jobs to increase work experience and earn extra spending money. However, we hope teens who can’t find jobs this summer due to a still-challenging job market do not become too discouraged. There are still ways to earn valuable experience through volunteering or by creating your own opportunities by starting a business, such as a lawn mowing service or house sitting service.” Seasonal work can provide young people with important work-readiness and interpersonal skills that will help them to succeed in their careers. Overwhelmingly, teens who planned to get summer jobs said that they viewed gaining real-life work experience (79 percent) as the top benefit of summer employment other than salary. Yet only 5 percent of respondents planning to work this summer said they planned to seek an internship in a field of interest to them. Locally, Junior Achievement of Wisconsin has volunteer-delivered programs for students in kindergarten through high school, which introduce work-readiness concepts in an experiential learning format. Visit to learn more. Methodology This survey was conducted Feb. 5-15, 2013, using the KnowledgePanel to interview 1,025 teens ages 14-18 years old. The survey’s margin of error is +/- 3 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. The local survey was conducted online from January 23 through March 19, 2013.

Woodlake Market brew selection grows: Milwaukee Brewing Co.
Woodlake Market full-service grocery store keeps its beer shelves full with a unique selection of craft beer. This month, Milwaukee Brewing Co. adds to the list of top beers available at Woodlake Market. Milwaukee Brewing Company’s year-round varietals are now available at Woodlake Market, including Love Rock Vienna Lager, Hop Happy IPA and their flagship beer Louie’s Demise Amber Ale. Enjoy Milwaukee Brewing Company’s beers at Woodlake Market and at regional events such as the annual Kohler Festival of Beer, Milwaukee Brew Fest and the Great Taste of the Midwest. Mike Christensen, Director of Sales for Milwaukee Brewing Company, thinks that it’s an exciting time for craft brews. “The craft beer industry has grown far beyond where I thought that it would go 10 years ago. The demand for craft beer keeps growing every day and I don’t know if anyone really knows where it will end.” Christensen also says that because of the endless varieties and opportunities of artisan style beers, craft brewers are pushing the envelope on what they can produce. Milwaukee Brewing Company has a new product coming out called Weekend @ Louie’s that will be available at Woodlake Market. “We partnered with Rishi Tea, and infused our amber ale with their Organic Blueberry Rooibos tea which gives the beer a fantastic blueberry aroma without adding any sticky sweetness to it. It’s like biting into a blueberry pancake.” History of Milwaukee Brewing Company: It all started in 1996 at the Milwaukee Ale Haus with a simple concept of brewing a couple of beers at a pub. Then fame struck. The demand for the product gained popularity and by 2007, Milwaukee Brewing Company opened a 2nd street brewery in Walker’s point. Now, Milwaukee Brewing Company has made a mark on the craft beer industry, and is continuing to grow. Distributed throughout Wisconsin and Chicago area, Milwaukee Brewing Company has grown to be a prominent craft brewery in the Midwest. See The American Club Resort calendar of events on the back page of the Kohler Villager for Woodlake Market Events & Sales.
