Peter Schueller
KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates
appointed to Kohler launches new additions
Dark Chocolate Candy Bars, Sugar-Free
School Board
Landscape Tiles, and Divine Chunks
Submitted by School
Board President
Marlene Yang
At its June 15 meeting, the Kohler School
Board voted to appoint
Peter Schueller to the
Board replacing Matt
Kautzer.
Mr. Schueller, a graduate of Kohler Schools, has been
president and owner of Lakeside
Bottling Company since 2012.
Mr. Schueller is a certified public
accountant who was previously a
partner with the audit and consulting firm, Deloite & Touche,
LLP. He and his wife, Erin, have
five children – four of whom are
currently enrolled in the District.
In addition to his professional
credentials, Mr. Schueller cited
the following personal attributes
in his letter of interest to the
Board:
• Forward and critical thinker
• Demonstrated leadership skills
• Bias towards thoughtful action
• Understanding and commitment to governance
• Willingness to serve

“I will use these skills
and my commitment to
help ensure that we are
providing the best
schools possible for all
of our children. As great
as my responsibilities
have been throughout
my career, serving our
children is the greatest
responsibility.” said Schueller.
Board President Marlene Yang
stated, “Mr. Schueller’s background compliments a Board of
talented and highly-accomplished
members: Chad Hamilton, Senior
VP and General Counsel for Sargento Foods, Inc; Diane Kelly, Executive Director of Talent
Development for Baker Tilly; and
Christina Koberstein, engaged
community leader. This is a critical time in public education. I
value the dedication of these community members to guide our
schools.”
Peter Schueller’s appointment
to the Board will last through
April, 2016 when the seat will be
open for general election.

are made with no-sugar added
dried blueberries, roasted almonds
and sugar-free chocolate that will
satisfy any sweet tooth.
Divine Chunks – Filled with a
chunky peanut butter center, the
Divine Chunks are available with a
milk chocolate shell. Each handcrafted piece has a unique color of
pink and purple.
“When developing our new
products, we wanted to create varieties that incorporate robust flavors
and excite the palate,” said Righi
DeFendi. “Our new Dark Chocolate Candy Bars appeal to the ultimate chocolate lover, offering a
richer and bolder taste, and the
Sugar Free Landscape Tiles’
slightly tart and nutty flavor combination is a match made in heaven.
Creating the Divine Chunks was an
exciting task for us as we wanted to
appeal to both children and adults,
with the taste and eye-catching colors.”
All three products will be available year-round. The new varieties
can be purchased, starting in August 2015, at Craverie Chocolatier

Industry survey reveals Tender
Hearts Senior Care success
North American annual study proves staff turnover rate
lower than average which confirms retention efforts are
paying off
Sheboygan, WI – June 22, 2015 –
A consistent theme among employers today is the need to find
and retain quality employees. And
while no company is immune to
those challenges, Tender Hearts
Senior Care learned that their efforts are creating positive results.
In the 2015 Private Duty Benchmarking Study, Tender Hearts
found they had a significantly
lower turnover compared with the
88% for the Great Lakes region
and 62% study wide. The study
has been conducted annually since
2009 by Home Care Pulse and endorsed by the Home Care Association of America. The 2015
research surveyed 701 home care
service providers throughout
North America. In addition to employment issues, the study addresses finance, sales, marketing,
and operations to allow comparison to industry peers.
Ongoing education and support
have assisted in employment
longevity for Tender Hearts. Of
their entire team, 61% have provided over 10,000 hours of service
per caregiver and 91% of the team
has over 2,300 care hours per care-

giver. Typical for the home care
industry, employers offer online
training with course material accessed by caregivers when required by the agency. Tender
Hearts takes a different approach.
They use an on-premise classroom
allowing for customization and
flexibility to adapt to the needs of
their caregivers and clients. Their
in-person training assures each
member of the care team experiences optimal education and support to encourage ongoing growth.
“Our industry requires people
with a passion for care. Combine
that with the ability to deliver services for the unique needs of each
client and you quickly realize that
finding, and as importantly retaining, caregivers is crucial,” says
Todd Witting, co-owner of Tender
Hearts Senior Care. “To that end,
we created Essential Functions Assessments that each caregiver
completes to ensure they have the
skills necessary to serve the custom needs of the clients they will
be aiding. This means the caregiver is properly trained and also
helps forge long-term relationships
with those in our care.”

75% of the Tender Hearts team
has been with them for two or
more years and 50% for four or
more years. Those retention stats
become even more impressive
knowing that Tender Hearts provides services to more than double
the clients than other agencies
their size in the Great Lakes region
do.
The final point of difference that
supports employee retention for
Tender Hearts is they have 4.5 support staff for the care team compared with 2.5 support staff
study-wide in agencies in their
revenue bracket.
Tender Hearts Senior Care
began in 2006 when founder
Dawn Wittig recognized a need to
provide personalized services to
elderly, physically or mentally disabled people who need more care
than family or friends can provide.
They serve clients throughout Sheboygan County with supportive,
personal, property, skilled services; long-term care planning; and
respite. For more information

Kohler-Andrae State Park one of
most popular
By Kevin Struck
Based on a recent report,
Kohler-Andrae State Park had an
estimated 414,830 visitors in 2010,
which placed it 6th among Wisconsin’s 45 state parks. These visitors spent a total of $19,893,383
during their visit or en route. The
report, Economic Impacts of the
Wisconsin State Park System, was
published by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in
November, 2013. The nearly $20
million in visitor expenditures
ranked Kohler-Andrae 9th overall.

(Devil’s Lake was 1st in both categories.)
Positive opinions about our local
State Park are easy to find. “I
enjoy visiting Kohler-Andrae for
so many reasons, from taking my
bicycle out for a ride or going for
a walk, visiting friends at the
campsites, or even hanging out
down by the lakeshore with the
family,” said Sheboygan County
Associate Planner, Emily Vetting.
“I really enjoy having one of the
best state parks in Wisconsin just a
few miles away. It’s a beautiful

park for biking, hiking, walking on
the beach or just relaxing!” said
Sheboygan
resident
Steven
Heinen.
Indeed, many of Kohler-Andrae’s biggest fans are from relatively close by. Approximately
80% of the park’s visitors were
from an 8-county southeastern region that included Sheboygan,
Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha,
Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, and
Walworth. For comparison, only
55% of visitors to all Wisconsin
state parks came from a particular

park’s region.
The report also summarized visitor expenditures by the type of
state facility, with visitors spending an estimated $90 per person
per day at State Trails, $67 at State
Rec Areas, and $50 at State Parks.
Most of the additional spending at
State Trail sites was due to dollars
allocated for accommodations and
restaurants/bars by snowmobilers
and ATV riders, which was more
than double what was spent by
State Park visitors for the same
items.

Superintendent’s Report (Quynh Trueblood)
NATIONAL HISTORY DAY PROJECTS
Congratulations to Emma Egbert and Cindy Zheng for
receiving a medal and special award for Civil Rights
for their project on Judy Chamberlin.  Three projects
are moving on to the National competition in June in
Maryland.  Special recognition goes to: Kate O’Leary
with her play on Elizabeth Blackwell , Nicole Koenecke and Hannah Neist with their exhibit on Mahatma Gandhi, Grace Unger and Cecilia Zielke with
their exhibit on William Lloyd Garrison.  Our students’ achievement is made possible, in part, by the
full-hearted support of their teachers: Ms. Mona
LaBudde and Mr. Matt Beyens and their
families.  Thank you to Mrs. LaBudde and Mr.
Beyens and families for their support.
FORENSICS
Congratulations to Ian Creek, Matt Feltner, and
Alexandrea Willadsen for their outstanding performance at the state forensics competition earning them
letters and silver medals.  Forensic performances
are judged on composure and the ability to connect
with the audience.  For all students, there is a
healthy amount of anxiety and Matt and Ian overcame the unique adversities associated with Autism
Spectrum Disorder.  The difference was made by the
extraordinary efforts of the faculty of the special education department: Ms. Lori Schmid for tireless
practicing and traveling to the competition and support throughout the process, Mrs. Kim Wilkens and
Ms. Alree Thee for their supportive coaching.  Our
entire school community celebrates this moment of
pride.  
PIE THROWING CONTEST
Students of Mr. Tengowski’s advisory raised money
for charity from the sales of a chance to throw
cream pie in the faces of Mr. Poytinger, Ms.
Godlewski, Mr. Bocchini, and me.  We discovered
that cream is an effective hair product! In the spirit
of community building, it was good fun for all.
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK
The school community celebrated the extraordinary
work of our teachers and support staff at a luncheon
hosted by the Kohler School Friends and with gifts of
appreciation throughout the week.  Special thanks to
Nicole Brigham for the thoughtful gifts and Sonja
Heins, Beth Tengowski, and Linda Lewis for preparing the luncheon.
EBBEN FIELD UPDATE
Seeds planted, straw laid, hope to see first blades of
grass come Memorial weekend.  In the fall, Soccer
games will be played on the football field.  Practice
facilities will be onsite on the west field, planted last
year, for football and soccer practices in coordination with coaches and game schedules.  A summer
and fall fundraising drive for lights on the soccer
field is ahead.
BUDGETAn unprecedented groundswell in opposition
to the proposed cuts to the education budget has
spread across the state. Board resolutions, superintendent and teacher letters to legislators and editorials, parent groups testimonials at public hearings,

and alliances with business partners is making a
statement that Wisconsin public schools need the
restoration of 127M in proposed cuts to the biennium budget. Restoration of the cuts would put
schools back to zero rather over negative.  As State
Superintendent Evers states, “Zero is not a win.”
The state’s budget process will conclude in the next
weeks.  I applaud and thank everyone who has
taken interest and action in support of funding for
quality public education in our community.
PRINCIPAL  SEARCH UPDATE
I wish to thank the board, faculty, and families for
their time and commitment to the input sessions for
principals for our three schools.  It is crystal clear
we are a community deeply invested in our schools.
We share excitement over finding the best to lead
our schools.
STRATEGIC COMPENSATION
A presentation by the committee provided teachers
with the committee’s goals, process, guiding questions, research, and the performance-base salary
model.  There was overwhelming consensus for appreciation for the committee’s work and board’s
commitment to supporting quality educators.
KEY CLUB
High school students from Key Club and I were delighted to spend our afternoon with the community
at the  Fireman’s picnic fundraiser.  I am so proud of
how our high school students served in the spirit of
giving to the community.
WASDA 48th ANNUAL EDUCATION CONFERENCE
The theme: Closing the communication gap: Building relationships with key audiences in your district
is a
tImely topic for Kohler School District and its future
commitment to strategic communication. The new
role for school leaders includes Evidence Based Advocacy. We will be listening and learning together to
strengthen our community through the work of our
schools.
Principal’s Report (Lori Neurohr)
Elementary News
Thanks to the generosity of the Kohler School Foundation, our fourth grade students recently went on a
field trip to JA Biztown.  JA BizTown gives thousands
of students in grades four through six the opportunity to run banks, manage restaurants, read utility
meters, use debit cards, and even vote.  It combines
in-class learning with a daylong visit to their
facility.  It is a fully interactive, true-to-life simulation where students learn the fundamental relationship between academics and life beyond
school.  Their interactive curriculum engages and
excites students, leading to stronger critical-thinking
and decision-making skills and more confidence.
Middle School News
The 8th grade students attended Junior Achievement’s Finance Park on Friday, April 24th.  Over the
past month, advisors have been teaching the kids
the JA Curriculum to prepare them for their experience on this day.  The experience took place from
9am - 1:30pm.
The eighth graders got to see what financial decisions parents need to make on a weekly basis.  The
advisors heard many comments from students
throughout the day about their excitement and what
they learned.  Many of them were in aww about
budgeting their money and realizing that the dollar
does not go very far.  Each student was given a situation.  For example, married, 2 children, credit score
of 500, income of $25000 per year, and had to make
their purchasing decisions based on their scenario
in the following areas: home, vehicle, cell phone
plan for their family, eating out, clothing purchases,
and many more.  They even had to make credit card
payments in addition to paying utilities!  Their goal
was to have a balance of $0 at the end.  This included putting money into savings and giving to
charities, if they could afford it.  

JA does a great job making the experience as realistic as possible.  Their curriculum prepared the students to make the best educated decisions based on
their specific financial situation.  Thank you to the
Kohler Foundation for funding this worthwhile field
trip for our students.
163 elementary students and 184 middle school
students completed their Badger testing over the
last several weeks.  I want to acknowledge the hard
work of the students, the teachers who proctored the
tests, Ryan Miller for his outstanding technical support and Karen Ingels for diligence in making sure
everything ran smoothly.

Bike Safety Day
On June 6, 2015 the Kohler Police Department held
a bike safety day in the parking lot adjacent to the
Village Hall buildings. We had approximately 45 attendees with some really nice weather. Officer
Matthew Hocevar and Administrative Assistant
Jodie Kuklinski did a good job in preparing for the
event this year. Harley from Wolf’s Cycle was present and did a safety inspection on each bicycle.
Each attendee received a new bicycle helmet and a
bike accessory along with a beverage and a bag of
chips. The bicycle helmets were provided at a discount and fitted by Aurora Memorial Medical Center. The chips were donated by Frito Lay of
Oostburg and the soda was donated by Lakeside
Pepsi out of Sheboygan Falls. We all look forward
to doing it again next year. Pictures of the event are
posted on the Kohler Police Department website at
www.kohlerpolice.com.
New Website
When you go to www.kohlerpolice.com, you will
find that the website has been updated. We still
have the vacation checks and bike license application on the site. Administrative Assistant Jodie
Kuklinski put a lot of hard work into it, and hopefully you find the new site to be better than the previous one.

The Village Board thanked Bill Kunst for his years of
outstanding service and contributions to the Village of
Kohler as a Trustee.
