Kohler native Jenna Peters clears Kohler High School
opening hurdle in her bid to earn students named National
Merit Scholarship
a spot on the LPGA Tour
Jenna Peters, who helped lead
the Kohler High School golf team
to a state championship her senior
year in 2011, was the only golfer among four from Wisconsin
to make it through the first stage
of the LPGA Tour Q-School at
Mission Hills Country Club in
Rancho Mirage, California held
August 25-28. Jenna is a recent
graduate of Butler University,
where she golfed on the women’s
team earning BIG EAST Player of
the Year in 2015.
Jenna, along with fellow Wisconsinites Lisbeth Brooks of
Waunakee, Brooke Ferrell of
Edgerton, and Jessie Gerry of
Madison were among 347 golfers who competed in the first
stage of LPGA Tour Qualifying
School, which are annual tournaments that qualify golfers for
leading tours such as the Syme-

semifinalists

tra and LPGA. A player who
makes it through all three stages
of Qualifying School is granted
membership on the LPGA tour
for the following season known
as a “tour card.” The tour card allows a player to play in most of
the tour’s events without having
to qualify. Also, players who ad-

vance through Stage 1 and Stage
2 of Qualifying School will have
some type of status on the Symetra tour which is the feeder circuit
to the LPGA tour.
The format of the LPGA Tour
Q-School was 72 holes of strokeplay competition played over four

Kohler High School and Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation are proud to
announce that Angela Schmitt
and Nathan Waniorek have been
named 2017 National Merit
Scholarship Semifinalists, and
Elise Schlecht and Luke Silvestri have been named Commended Students in the 2017 National
Merit Scholarship Program.
Angela and Nathan are academically talented high school seniors
who have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some
7,400 National Merit Scholarships
worth more than $32 million that
will be offered next spring. To
be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must

fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level of the
competition. About 90 percent of
the Semifinalists are expected to
attain finalist standing, and about
half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning
the title of Merit Scholar.
Else and Luke are also academically talented high school
seniors. Although they will not
continue in the 2017 competition
for National Merit Scholarship
Award, Commended Students are
placed among the top five percent
of more than 1.6 million students
who entered the 2017 competition. Congratulations to Angela,
Nathan, Elise, Luke and their families!

Food-flinging fun mixed in a
stew of hijinks and hilarity!

KOHLER, WI – Kohler Foundation’s final 2016 ‘Arts at the
Waelderhaus’ event will be held
at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October
23. David Daniel of American

Known around the state for
engaging audiences in poetry,
language, and Shakespeare, actor
and teaching artist David Daniel
brings his gifts to Waelderhaus.
In his piece, “Of Juliet and Her
Romeo,” David engages the audience in the text of Shakespeare’s
Romeo and Juliet. Why is it a
masterpiece? Why does it still
resonate in a modern world? How
does an actor find his way into
this daunting play? Combing his
talents as a storyteller, actor, and
educator, David brings this story
to life in his signature irreverent,
tender, and compelling style. Just

third round. Jenna shot 1 over par
the first day of the tournament on
the Dinah Shore Course, even par
on the second day on the Palmer Course, and one under par the
third day on the Player Course
to put her at even par through 54
holes moving up 24 spots into a
tie for 39th place going into the
final round. Jenna’s goal, to finish
in the top 90 and advance to Stage
2, was realized on a 105 degree
day when she finished the 72 hole
qualifier at 6 over par. Jenna was
the only Wisconsin golfer to make
it to Stage 2, and reaching the second stage will most likely make
Jenna a regular next summer on

Kohler boys’ soccer
September highlights
Two days after a 4-0 shutout
of St. Mary’s Catholic on September 15th, coach Rod Hogan’s
Blue Bombers boys’ soccer team
headed to Wrightstown for an invitational tournament, where they
opened with a victory against the
host Tigers, rallying from two
goals down to win 4-2.
In the semi-finals, Kohler faced
a familiar foe, Cedar Grove-Belgium, and came away with a solid
4-0 win.
The final matched Kohler
against a tough Seymour team.
The two squads battled through a
scoreless game until Charlie Kelly slotted home the game winner
with less than a minute left in regulation time.

The tournament champion
Bombers were led by Joe Kay,
who found the back of the net four
times on the day. Charlie Kelly,
Colin Hogan, Ben Herold, Christian Cantrell, and Nick Wandschneider each added one goal.
After a tough loss to Oostburg
on the 22nd, the Bombers, led by
Henry O’Donnell’s three goals,
bounced back on the 26th to crush
Ozaukee 11-1. The momentum
continued a day later with an exciting 3-2 win over Howards Grove
in which Charlie Kelly scored the
game winning goal with five seconds left on the game clock.

What started as a one-night
dinner auction fundraiser in the
school gym ten years ago has
grown to a celebration of education, community, and giving.
On October 29, 2016, the Kohler
School Foundation’s Fall Follies
will celebrate its tenth year with
an appropriately themed fundraising event, “Rockin’ through the
Decades.”
Fall Follies has grown in attendance over the years. It continues
to be open to all ticket-purchasing
residents, Kohler Schools’ faculty
and parents, their friends, and corporate supporters. Yet attendance
has not been the only area of
growth. The nonprofit 501(c)(3)
organization has tripled its proceeds through the decade, raising
well over a million dollars for the
benefit of Kohler Schools.
Established in 1997, The Kohler
School Foundation helps promote excellence at the district by
awarding grants, scholarships,
professional development for educators and assistance for the ongoing and expanded needs of Kohler
Schools. Each year, the Foundation takes the proceeds from Fall
Follies and uses it to directly impact the next academic year in the
form of grants that align directly

with the district’s strategic plan.
These initiatives otherwise would
not happen, as they are considered
items outside the scope of the District typical budget. Schools need
a reliable source of revenue separate from the restricted and often
challenged public funding.
Technology has, in the past,
been an emphasis for the Kohler
School Foundation, as it often requires capital-intensive hardware
that extends beyond the district’s
budget. “It’s a logical place to
direct funds, as it often impacts
every student in the district and
gives students the opportunity to
learn more globally by expanding
the virtual walls of the classroom,
“said Foundation Board president Amy Biznek, “Yet, while the
Foundation is known for supporting technology, it also supports
programs that develop the student
as a whole.” A great example has
been the impact the Foundation
has had with the Junior Achievement model in the middle school.
Through a Foundation grant, the
school is entering its fourth year
educating fifth grade and eighth
grade students in finance through
trips to Junior Achievement’s BizTown and Finance Park in the
Milwaukee area. These programs
also include classroom curriculum
leading up to the trips and summaries afterward to punctuate the

various aspects of finance the students learned. Among many concepts, fifth grade students are assigned specific roles in a business,
develop knowledge of income and
expenses, and learn how to impact
the business based on supply and
demand. Eighth graders understand more what it takes to balance a checkbook. They also learn
the impact of a large purchasing
decision on a family budget.
The Kohler School Foundation
does more than that: in the past
year, the organization invested
$45,000 to support the library
renovation. In conjunction with
the generosity of the Village of
Kohler, both patrons and students
have access to several different
meeting environments - from individual cubicles that connect a
student laptop to the world to inviting areas to collaborate, the library is now a more flexible space
for learning.
It’s apparent Fall Follies has
made an impact. Over the past 10

celebrated education. With dinner,

Brush Pick-up
The Village crew picks up brush and tree branches that
can be run through a chipper on Tuesdays. The material
must be in 4-foot lengths, maximum of 6-inch diameter and
piled neatly at the curb. No thorny material or material with
root balls is allowed. Thorny material, root balls and all
loose material must go in the yard waste cart.
Leaf Collection
Leaf collection will start on October 3rd and continue until
December 2nd. Leaves should be raked into the street
along the curb in three-foot (3’) wide rows. No grass
clippings, sticks, or other garden debris is allowed.
The Public Works Department follows a schedule for leaf
collection. Each week, the collection starts on the south end
of the Village where the trees are more mature and produce
more leaves. The route continues to the west and north
sections of the Village. During the last part of October and
early part of November we may only be able to get through
the Village once a week due to the heavy leaf fall.
Fall Yard Waste
Yard waste must be put into the carts with the green lid.
On October 25th and November 1st, yard waste may be put
into additional containers after the cart is full for these two
special pickup weeks.
Emerald Ash Borers (Written by Mike Kitzerow – Village
of Kohler DPW & Arborist)
Ash trees in many Wisconsin communities are under

attack by the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an invasive,
wood boring beetle. It kills ash trees by eating the tissue
under the bark. It is native of East Asia and inadvertently
brought to the US in wood shipping crates from China.
At this point it has not been detected in the Village of
Kohler, but has been found in both Sheboygan and
Sheboygan Falls. This does not mean they are not here.
Most of southern Wisconsin is in a quarantine zone to
try to slow the spread of the beetle. We visually monitor
village trees and perform close inspections when pruning.
Emerald ash borers are very small metallic green beetles.
They are about the size of a cooked grain of rice: only
about ⅜-½ inch long and 1/16 inch wide. Adults emerge
from beneath the bark of ash trees in late May through
mid-July. They create D-shaped exit holes as they chew
their way out. They never wander far from the tree they
emerge from (a mile or two). Adults will feed on the
leaves but do little actual damage to trees. Larvae feed
under the bark for one or two years and create s-shaped
galleries. This is where the damage is done. Trees that are
attacked by EAB can die within 2 to 4 years. Symptoms
of the borer include bark splitting, crown reduction,
epicormic branching, and woodpecker feeding.
The Village of Kohler has approximately 300 ash trees
lining our streets. We also have many ash trees in parks,
woods, or on private property. Many of our street trees
are greater than 20 inches in diameter and have grown
to the point where they provide significant shaded
canopy, provide value to homes and aid in rainfall runoff
reduction. All of our ash trees are susceptible to the borer.
Our treatment program began as soon as the borer
was discovered in Wisconsin, approximately six years
ago. Trees were evaluated for structural soundness and
condition. Those that were sound were treated. Initial
treatments were done with Emamectin Benzoate, a
product that will remain in the trees for three years. The
village trees were divided into thirds and put on a three
year treatment rotation. Treatment is done by injecting the
product into the trunk at the root collar. Recently we have
switched our injection methods to try to reduce damage
to the base of the tree and risk of public exposure to the
product. All of our injections are done by Department of
Public Works staff that is Wisconsin certified pesticide
applicators.
Moving forward, ash trees in the village will need to
be continually treated. We will continue to update our
program to use the most productive and cost effective
methods of treatment. Trees that were deemed to be
structurally unsound are being removed and replaced with
new varieties. We have yet to see whether the treatment
programs will save the trees over the long term or just
delay the insect-borne damage. Residents can help slow
the spread of this insect by limiting the movement of
firewood into the village. On its own, the beetle will fly
only a few miles, but is easily moved in ash firewood.

Wisconsin- Madison’s EAB webpage.

Trick-or-Treat

The Kohler Police Department wants trick-or-treating to
be fun and safe for everyone. To help that cause, Officer
Hocevar will be holding a Safe Trick-or-Treat Awareness
Program in the school for the younger students. He will be
passing out trick-or-treat bags from the Police Department.
During Trick-or-Treating, which will be on October 31st
from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., officers will hand out the glow
necklaces to any child that wants one. The glow necklaces
will make the children more visible as they are enjoying the
night out. Choosing a costume where the kids are able to
maintain good vision is also a very good idea.

2016 Top 500 Public High School from Newsweek Magazine. To
determine ranking, Newsweek analyzed two aspects of school
performance: the academic achievement of all students on state
assessments in reading and mathematics and the extent to which
high schools prepare their students for college.
Highlights:
Kohler High School ranks in the top 1% of all High Schools
nationally.
Kohler High School ranks in the top half of this 1%.

We graciously accept this ranking on behalf of our entire learning
community. It is yet another signal that our staff is dedicated to
doing great work that is starting to become recognized nationally,
not just locally.
Strategic Communications and School Perceptions
I wish to extend a great appreciation to our community for
supporting the district work on many fronts. From Strategic
Planning initiatives to structural changes to our parent and new
student orientation, and through the creation of an electronic
newsletter, our community and teachers have certainly
demonstrated a vested interest in improving our school.
We are dedicated to improve our messaging. We have focused
on Facebook as one instant way to which is happening in our
schools daily. Joe Hildebrand has updated the look to our Athletics
and Activities website for improved transparency and ease of
finding information. Lisa Greene and myself are creating monthly
electronic newsletters to update our entire community as to more
medium and long range planning as well as that which can be
expected in upcoming months. Our administrative staff will be
hosting community sessions on a regular basis to educate and
reach out to families. We are excited about these initiatives and
want to communicate that we are listening and responsive to the
needs of our families.
Review of District Finances
The 2015-16 fiscal year ended June 30, 2016 and, as expected, the
year ended with a favorable bottom line variance. The variance was
the result of underspending in various categories, with the majority
of the favorable variance in wages and benefits (vacancies), special
education, purchased services, and non-capital supplies.
The preliminary 2016-17 budget was approved by the board in
June 2016. The final 2016-17 budget and tax levy will be approved
on October 24, 2016 at the annual meeting. The major variable
at this point is enrollment, which continues to be monitored. Final
enrollment numbers (which is the primary factor affecting revenue)
for the 2016-17 school year are based on the 3 rd Friday pupil
count in September that is conducted on September 16, 2016.
The annual financial audit conducted by the school’s external
auditors has concluded. Similar to past years, the results were
favorable no issues of significance were identified. While this is
commonplace for the district, it should not be overlooked and is the
result of the efforts and dedication of many staff members.
Consent Agenda
Approval of July 9, 2016 Regular Board Meeting minutes
