Plymouth Artist Visits
Kohler Elementary
Local artist David Peterman
and his assistant Judy provided
an extraordinary art experience
for Kohler students. The art
room was filled with excitement and anticipation as he
demonstrated the basics of airbrushing directly on student
faces! Students also learned
that he creates custom art on a
variety of surfaces. Some of his
amazing talent is featured at
Cosmic Bounce and Blue Harbor. Listening, talking and
working with David Peterman
was an excellent experience.

Sheboygan County to Hold
Public Open House for 2015 Sheboygan County Outdoor Recreation and Open Space Plan
The Sheboygan County Planning
& Conservation Department is
holding a public open house to
gather input relating to parks,
open spaces, and recreational opportunities for the 2015 Sheboygan County Outdoor Recreation
and Open Space Plan.
The Plan is an important tool
for local communities. It spells
out the future goals, priorities,
and certain land use layouts based
directly on input from the residents. Its update is especially important since much of the current
Plan’s content is out-of-date and,
even more critically, communities
rely on the Plan for eligibility for
certain grants. A proposed project
must be identified in a County’s
recreation plan in order to receive
priority for State funding, which

has made many of the outdoor assets around the County possible.
To help form the Plan, Sheboygan County is asking area residents to provide suggestions on
topics ranging from the best locations of future parks, to the need
for new pathways, to the availability of fishing opportunities.
Please note that the Plan focuses
on areas outside of the City of
Sheboygan, which has its own
Below are the details for the public open house.

• 508 New York Avenue, Sheboygan, WI 53081

Fondest memories growing up in
Kohler: Too many!
What was most memorable about
attending Kohler Schools, and
how did the education at KHS
help this grad attain their goals?
Even though I was somewhere in
the middle of my class with a 3.6
GPA, When I got to college and
tested out of basic writing and
math courses my new classmates
had to take, I knew I had an exemplary foundation. The most memorable thing really has to be the
sense of community, independence
and all of us knowing each other
from kindergarten through graduation and beyond. I hear things have
changed a lot in that way which
makes me sad.

Friends who are like family. Sledding at “The Bowl,” Doll Buggy
Parades, Halloween with bonfire,
Ice cream social, graduation week

What was most memorable about
attending Kohler Schools, and
how did the education at KHS
help this grad attain their goals?
Teachers who cared and developing
great friendships. I believe I received a broad-based, well-rounded
education. I not only learned academic subjects, but was also taught
how to study, responsibility and
time management. I was encouraged to explore options, think creatively and dream.

I am a beautiful grey and white cockatiel and I am at
the shelter because my previous people were unable
to care for me any longer. I am very interested in
people and come to the front of my cage to interact.
However, I am not hand trained. The shelter is not
sure of my sex or age, but I can assure you, I am fabulous.

I am named after a Mud Fish Pokemon. Totally
not sure what that means, but maybe if you like
to play the game, you could come explain it to
me. Wait! I have an even better idea. You
could come and adopt me, take me home, and I
could sit on your lap while you play. That's the
ticket! See you soon?

Board of Education Regular Meeting – March 9, 2015
Call to Order
Marlene Yang called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. in
the Kohler Public Library. Nancy Case called roll. The
following board members were present: Marlene Yang,
and Matt Kautzer. Diane Kelly, Christina Koberstein and
Nancy Case.
Statement of Public Notice
March 6, 2015
Approval of Agenda
Nancy Case moved to approve the agenda. Diane Kelly
seconded the motion. All ayes. Motion carried.
Board President’s Report (Marlene Yang)
• The Board members have signed a resolution on the
2015-2017 state budget and school funding. The resolution was sent to the governor, the state legislatures,
and the members of the joint finance committee. Marlene encouraged members of the board to attend open
sessions of joint finance committee for public input either on March 18 at Brillion high school or March 20 at
Alverno College.
Superintendent’s Report (Quynh Trueblood)
Congratulations to students for their fine performances
and we wish them the best of success in future competitions.  We applaud the hard work and achievements of
our students and the ever important support of their advisors and families.  
• Madeleine Hoell for her exhibit of Coco Chanel and
Remy Havens for her exhibit of Liz Hartel in the National History Day competition.   We wish Madeleine
and Remy the best of luck at state and thank Ms. Mona
LaBudde, Mr. Beyens, and Ms Rozymarynowski for
their work with the students.
• Ms. Grossen and Ms. Rozmarynowksi helped to advance 12 students who will compete in the Future
Problem Solvers State Bowl in Green Lake in April.  
• Of a total of 172 performances by Kohler Middle and
High School Students at the Wisconsin School Music
Association’s District Solo & Ensemble Music Festival,
99 performances earned a top rating of 1 and of those,
29 students have advanced to the state competition.  We thank the music directors for their time and
• Emma Herold and Jenna Silvestri for qualifying  for
Junior National Swimming Championships. They will
compete in Orlando, FL, in March.
• Sean Delahunt, member of the varsity West Bend coop ski team, qualified for state competition and following the 40th Wisconsin High School Ski and Snowboard
• 132 students and 11 chaperones will attend the Music
Trip in Orlando FL this month.   This trip is one that
many students talk about well into their years past
high school. It is made possible only by the leadership
of our music directors, generous support of the Performing Arts Organization, and parents who encourage
music practice and appreciation and even chaperone.
The district extends its appreciation to everyone involved.
• I was delighted to serve on the food line of the Kohler
Police and Athletic League annual fundraising
cookout.  The KPAL is a benevolent society supporting
the mission of the school and community. The district
greatly appreciates its continued support.
• The unexpected passing of Bill Van Meer, Superintendent of New Holstein School District, is sobering. How
he spent his life’s time: teaching children, leading
schools, and building communities with prepared citizens, is reminder of the importance of staying focused
on, and true to, the school and community’s shared
purpose.  This shared purpose began in the vision of
Horace Mann in the 19th century. Horace Mann established the American mindset that education should
more than learning for the advancement of sectarian
ends, that it be universal, non-sectarian, and free; and
that its purpose should include social efficiency, civic
virtue, and character. Kohler School District is an
American public school living in the vision of Horace
Mann.  Before us tonight are board members, school
leaders, teachers, and community members who join,
with shared purpose, in the daily work of an American
public school.
Principal’s Report (Lori Neurohr)
Elementary News
Last week students in the elementary celebrated Dr.
Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America.  I dressed like

the Cat in the Hat and was accompanied by Thing One
and Thing Two, Mrs. Theune and Mrs. Ingels.  The front
page of yesterday’s school section of the Sheboygan
Press featured students in Mrs. Bittner’s Kindergarten
class making oobleck, based on the Dr. Seuss book
Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” Our second and third
grade students had a different Seuss-themed activity
planned for each day.  On Monday, students read Happy
Birthday to You and could spend their Drop Everything
and Read time reading their favorite Dr. Seuss
books.  Tuesday they read Fox in Socks and everyone
wore funky socks;  Wednesday, the classes read All the
Places You’ll Go and created a dream world using descriptive language; Thursday the Seuss book was One
Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and everyone was
treated to Goldfish crackers for snack.  Finally, Friday
they read The Cat in the Hat and students were able to
wear hats for the day.  Mrs. Stanley made some wonderful Seuss cutouts for student pictures last year, and we
were able to use them again this year for some fun pictures.
Middle School News
Our middle school students have been very busy preparing
for National History Day or NHD.  National History Day is
an exciting academic enrichment program that helps students learn about historical issues, ideas, people and
events.  Every year NHD frames students’ research within
a historical theme.  The theme is chosen for its broad application to world, national or state history.  It unites all
NHD participants and provides a structure for topic selection.  The theme chosen for the 2014-15 school year was
Leadership and Legacy in History. This year, Kohler Middle
School had 25 - 7th graders and 22 - 8th graders participate in the Regional National History Day competition at
UW Green Bay this past weekend.   Special congratulations
go out to the following students who will advance on to the
state competition:  Emma Egbert and Cindy Zheng with a
group website; Sierra Fish and Mari Perez with a group
website; Cecelia Zielke and Grace Unger with a group exhibit; Nicole Konecke and Hannah Neist with a group exhibit; Ben Guesneau with an individual exhibit; Kelsey
Sbrocco and Mallory Keller with a group documentary; Kate
O’Leary with an individual performance and Christian
Cantrell, Brian Zheng and Chris Zhang with a group performance.  In addition, 3 special awards were earned by
our students.  The Labor Award for the junior division went
to Bridget Bullard and Catilin Shaw and Kelsey Sbrocco and
Mallory Keller.  The Northeastern Wisconsin Junior Division
Award went to David Benishek, Henry Jacobson, Carter
Knuth and Nikith Ramagoni.  Many thanks go out to Mona
LaBudde and Matt Bayens for all of their hard working
preparing our students for the competition.
On the same day, 74 of our middle school band and choir
students participated in the Central Lakeshore Conference
- North District Solo & Ensemble Music Festival. State results will not be made available until after March 14th, as
many students will be performing Saturday at Sheboygan
South, due to a conflict with National History Day.  Please
extend your appreciation to Rich Tengowski, Lori Hucke and
Wendy Kukla for all their hard work preparing our students
for this important day.

A storable pool is any pool, which holds 1000 gallons of
water or more. Storable pools must be located 35 feet
from all lot lines and meet ALL electrical codes for the
Stormwater Pollution Prevention
To meet the Village’s stormwater permit education requirements and to be environmentally friendly, residents
need to be aware that storm drains located throughout the

Sip. Swing. Smoke. Scotch-themed
experience at Destination Kohler
The Balvenie Distillery partners with the Forbes Five-Star Destination to share
exclusive tastings of The Balvenie Fifty with Scotch enthusiasts on May 15-17
Scotch aficionados will congregate for
the exclusive opportunity to savor a dram
of The Balvenie Fifty Single Malt Scotch at
Destination Kohler during the Sip. Swing.
Smoke. Weekend, May 15-17. Travelers
will enjoy an extravagant weekend sipping
a variety of high-end Balvenie Scotch,
swinging golf clubs at Whistling Straits
and smoking Gurkha Cigars al fresco with
luxurious accommodations at the Forbes
Five-Star The American Club Resort
Hotel. The celebration culminates with an
inventive scotch pairings dinner at the
Forbes Four-Star Immigrant Restaurant
with pours of the recently released The
Balvenie Fifty Scotch.
Destination Kohler is one of four locations in the United States to receive an allotment of The Balvenie Fifty Scotch. In

November 2014 The Balvenie Distillery in
Banffshire, Scotland, the most handcrafted single malt producer in the world,
released 131 bottles worldwide distributing
only 15 bottles to the United States. The
Sip. Swing. Smoke. weekend is centered
on the opening of Bottle No. 53.
“The Balvenie Fifty is one of the rarest
bottles of scotch in the world,” said
Jonathan Wingo, The Balvenie Brand Ambassador. “Aged for fifty years in a European oak sherry hogshead by Malt Master
David Stewart, The Balvenie Fifty Scotch
stays true to the distinctively honeyed
character of The Balvenie portfolio with
notes of oak and vanilla with a lovely
mouth coating sweetness at the end. We
knew Destination Kohler, a brand that exudes the same level of sophistication and

prestige, was the perfect partner for this
momentous occasion.”
The Sip. Swing. Smoke. package includes accommodations for two nights at
The American Club Resort Hotel and highlights the following exclusive experiences
for a maximum of 12 guests (call for pricing):
