Kohler Schools: budget New face in town on trash is balanced, tax levy pickup Tuesday lowered by more than Larry’s Hauling acquired $200,000 by Veolia
Veolia Environmental Services has acquired Larry’s Hauling and will be the Village of Kohler’s garbage collection service beginning on the first of November. Public Works Superintendent Bruce Neerhof said Veolia promises a smooth transition, and will honor the two years that are left on the Village’s contract with Larry’s Hauling, which includes a yearly cost of $73,000 for solid waste collection and disposal, and $50,000 for recycling and yard waste collection. The contract also includes a fuel surcharge and built-in consumer price index provision. Submitted by Kohler Schools At its Annual Meeting on October 25, 2011, the Kohler School Board approved the final 2011/2012 school budget and tax levy. The levy for this current year will decrease by $203,000. The corresponding levy rate will drop by three per cent to $10.82 per $1,000 of property value. The budget approved by the Board at the Annual Meeting includes a surplus of $13,000. This is good news because in recent years the school had been operating at a deficit. “Because of careful budget planning and the teacher contract extension which allowed the Board to use its resources more efficiently, we are pleased to continue to focus on quality education in Kohler. We appreciate the concessions the teachers have made and their ongoing commitment to the students and families of Kohler Schools,” stated Board President Jane Bishop. The total school tax levy for the 2010-2011 school year was $5,798,000. The total tax levy for the 2011-2012 school year is $5,595,000, a reduction of $203,000. The tax levy rate will fall from $11.16 per $1,000 of property value to $10.82. The 2011-2012 budget is not only balanced, but includes new investments in teacher and student technology, professional development for staff, and long-term capital improvements. The long-term capital improvements fund will be built up over time to provide for major repairs and improvements in the future. The need to tuck point and restore the brick work on the exterior of the kindergarten room highlighted the need for the capital improvements investment. The Treasurer’s report at the Annual Meeting included an explanation of the factors comprising the $203,000 reduction in the tax levy. A decrease in per pupil revenue of 5.5 per cent required by the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, totaling $308,000, was partially offset by: 1.) an increase of $72,000 in the amount of payments due under the schools’ referendum debt that was approved in 2003; 2.) lower state aid of $26,000; and 3.) $7,000 of other factors. The Board is pleased to have returned to a balanced budget while using all available resources to support a high quality education in Kohler Schools.

Veolia trucks like this one will replace the familiar yellow Larry’s Hauling trucks.

Kohler School Friends PTO donates more than $23,000 to Kohler Schools
Provides field trip transportation, classroom materials, and stipends for 2011-2012 school year
This fall, the Kohler School Friends Parent Teacher Organization approved more than $23,000 in funding for Kohler Schools, including $9,430 for field trip transportation, $7,289 for teachers wish lists, and $6,400 for teachers stipends. (Visit kohlerschoolfriends.com for a complete listing of items). All students grades 4K through 12 benefit from this donation. KSF PTO has been providing this type of financial support to the Kohler Schools each year since the late 90’s. The Kohler School Friends PTO is the only support group with an annual “Teacher Wish List.” Kohler School teachers request educational items that they’d like to have in their classrooms. These items are above and beyond our District’s available budget, and are not classroom necessities, but enhancements that support the curriculum. Our teachers also submit requests for bus transportation funding to the KSF PTO “Field Trip List.” Another form of financial support for our teachers is the Kohler School Friends Teacher Stipend. Through this program, each classroom teacher is eligible for a $150 stipend which reimburses him/her for miscellaneous expenses that they’d pay out of their own pockets otherwise. Funds for the teacher wish list, field trip transportation, and teacher stipend come directly from KSF PTO’s biggest fundraiser of the year – the Kohler School Friends Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair. All items in the accompanying list were purchased with funds raised by the 2010 Craft Fair. A large portion of this income came from outside of our school community–vendors/crafters rented booth spaces from KSF, and shoppers from all over the Midwest paid admission, purchased raffle tickets, bought baked goods and purchased lunch items at our Holiday Café. By holding our Fair in conjunction with the American Club’s Wisconsin Holiday Market, many people spend the day shopping in Kohler, which benefits both shows, local businesses, and most importantly–the children of Kohler Schools.

County’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection program closed for season
County Planning & Conservation Director Aaron Brault reported that the overwhelming success of the program has exhausted all of the funds budgeted by the Sheboygan County Board for 2011. An impressive 1,300 vehicles passed through the four collections held this year. These popular collections are conducted several Saturdays throughout the year, rotating between Sheboygan and Plymouth. Funding for the program in 2012 is included in next year’s proposed departmental budget. It is anticipated that the program will reopen in March of 2012.

Two authors visit Kohler Schools
On October 14th, two visiting author presentations were held in the Kohler Memorial Theater. Students in grades 9 – 12 attended a 90 minute talk with author M.T. Anderson (The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing; Thirst). Students in grades 4 – 8 met with author Liz Garton Scalon (All the World; Noodle & Lou). The authors read portions of their books aloud, discussed the writing and publishing process, and answered questions from the students. Both presentations were sponsored by Kohler School Friends PTO, and were held in conjunction with the Sheboygan Childrens’ Book Festival.

School chef and Tech Ed students collaborate on creating apple peeling station for lunches
After Kohler Schools Chef Ted Weidman received comments from parents saying that their children prefer apples in their lunches to some less healthy snacks, he purchased two apple peelers and the Tech Ed department created an awesome cutting board to attach them to. “I feel it is a win-win for all,” Said Weidman. “Kids bring up to 65 apples daily, or I sell them for 50 cents.”

Restoration Gardens Business Partner- Brian Grimm, Owner-Craig Harms, and Employees Terry Schill, and Greg Voss.

Sheboygan, Wis. – Restoration Gardens was named Exemplary Employer of the Year at the 10th Annual Sheboygan County Employer Recognition Luncheon held Thurs., Oct. 6, at The American Club in Kohler, Wis., to honor the hundreds of area employers who support vocational skills training and provide job opportunities for people with disabilities. "Restoration Gardens owner Craig Harms and his team join a distinguished group of local businesses who recognize the skills, work ethic, and determination of people whose abilities too often remain an afterthought when it comes to employment," said Craig McFadden, RCS Employment Services. “Helping people of all abilities find meaningful work benefits everyone and strengthens our communities.” Only one employer among hundreds in the county is recognized each year for demonstrating a long-term effort to investing in employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Harms co-founded Restoration Gardens in 2003 and Restoration Farms in 2009 to establish a handson education and agricultural experience for high school students and a way to teach valuable training and life skills. Harms is also a member of Business Education Partnership Committee of the She-

boygan County Chamber of Commerce. “When we make things better for others we are really only making things better for ourselves, and we get to hire great employees thanks to RCS Empowers,” said Harms. Other Sheboygan County outstanding employers in 2011 include Aurora Medical Center in Grafton; Bread & Bean Eatery; Faye’s Pizza; Georgia Ave. Body Shop; Gibbsville Implement; Highland House Restaurant; Kwik Trip #361; Legend Larry’s; Main Street Subs and Salad; Richardson’s Furniture Emporium; Taco Bell; Taco Bell South Sheboygan; and Weimann’s Sports Center. The awards luncheon is a collaborative effort sponsored by RCS Employment Services, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Hearthstone of Wisconsin, a selfhelp and advocacy organization for people with disabilities and their families. Each year, more than 200 Sheboygan County employers, community leaders, service providers, employees, and families attend the recognition luncheon to appreciate the ongoing support for providing job opportunities for people of all abilities.

Sports
Kohler resident and tireless supporter of Kohler Schools athletics Lisa Bocchini is frustrated by the lack the blue and white school colors at Kohler athletic events. She is calling on other parents, spectators, and students to wear the “blue and white” at athletic events. “When you look across the gym, do you see the team colors of the opposing team? Do you know the boys and girls on that court or field are working their tails off for the pride of the Blue and White?” asks Bochini. “Show the athletes that you support them! Wear the team colors, stand up for the school song, and, most importantly, stand up and cheer for them when they are announced!” The Kohler School Friends PTO organization offers Bomber blue and white logo apparel throughout the year at athletic events as well as on its website at kohlerschoolfriends.com, but Bocchini would be happy to just see the audience wearing anything in royal blue. “Let’s make our side of the gym a blue and white-out!” exclaims Bocchini.

Kohler girls tennis team MISSING: Bombers wins EWC Championship, Blue & white sends three to state
Jessie Dyksterhouse/Sarah Leick (2 doubles) and juniors Sydney Yang/Shelby Homiston (3 doubles). Sectional qualifiers included Audra Hoffmann (3rd place), Elyse Gutschow (2nd place), Lily Proudman (4th place), and Melyssa Louwagie/Mari Marzano. Audra earned a trip to the State Individual tournament on Oct 1314. She won her first match over Olivia Gallager of Lodi before falling to Daley Rupar of Wausau Newman. Audra was only one of six freshman out of the 84 girls who competed at state. The No. 1 doubles team of Mari Marzano and Melyssa Lowagie were chosen as special qualifiers and also competed at the State Tournament. They fell in the first round to Annabel Ware/Margaret Zimmermann of Racine Prairie. Kohler’s junior varsity team showed outstanding team spirit and significant skill improvement throughout the season. JV players included seniors Sarah Molepske and Angela Sjolund; junior Katie Anderson; sophomore Morgan Fenton and freshmen Leigh Schlect, Megan Conklin, Katie Lindow, Hannah Cantrell and Lily Hart. Individual all-conference awards and team awards had not yet been selected prior to submission deadline, so they will be included in next month’s issue.

Submitted by girls tennis coach Wendy Tauscheck The Kohler girls tennis team wrapped up a very exciting season by winning the 10-team Eastern Wisconsin Conference Championship for the first time in coach Wendy Tauscheck’s 10-year history of coaching girls tennis. The entire varsity squad is credited with the victory by scoring a total of 55 dual meet points to edge Plymouth (54 points) and Roncalli (53 points). Each match won in the

conference dual meets counts for one point, so seven points are possible in each of the nine conference dual meets. The team finished the season ranked sixth in the state in Division 2 in the Wisconsin High School Tennis Coaches Association poll behind Green Bay Notre Dame, University School of Milwaukee, Edgewood, Wausau Newman and Racine St. Catherine’s. Editor’s note: Though Kohler High School is one of the smallest

in Division 3, the lack of tennis programs in Division 3 schools forces Kohler’s girls and boys tennis teams to compete in Division 2 against much larger high schools. The varsity singles line-up included freshman Audra Hoffmann (1 singles), sophomore Jenny Louwagie (2 singles), sophomore Elyse Gutschow (3 singles) and senior Lily Proudman (4 singles). Varsity doubles teams were senior Melyssa Louwagie/junior Mari Marzano (1 doubles), juniors

Kohler Fall Band Concert
On, Tuesday, November 22, the Kohler Band Department will present its Fall Band Concert. The concert, which features the Concert Band, Symphony Band, and Jazz Ensemble, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Kohler Memorial Theater. The program will feature music selections sure to please everyone. The theme of the concert is modern music. All of the band pieces to be performed will have been written within the last ten years by some of today’s most creative composers. The middle school Concert Band will be performing Anne McGinty’s Fanfare and Fugue, a march called Festive Spirit, March on a King’s Highway written by Wisconsin composer Pierre LaPlante, and an energetic blues tune called Drive. The high school Symphony Band will open their portion of the concert with Michael Daugherty’s Alligator Alley. The composer invokes two themes in this piece: the first called the alligator theme and the second is called the hunter’s theme. Within the piece you will hear slithering melodies and the loud snaps. Next on the program is John Fannin’s Hexagon. The driven tempo and constantly changing meter creates an unrelenting rhythmic masterpiece from a few well-developed fragments – all based on the number six. One of the student’s favorites is Hymn for the Lost and Living by Eric Ewazen. This piece is a memorial to everyone who has been touched by the events of 9/11. The Symphony Band will end their part of the program with music of Harry Potter written by one of today’s finest film composers, John Williams. The Jazz Ensemble will conclude the concert with Sinatra’s The Way You Look Tonight, and a Dizzy Gillespie’s Manteca. The bands are directed by Richard Tengowski. The concert is free and open to the public.

December 19th Sing @ Elks Club By Madeline Kelly This year the Kohler High Key Club has joined forces with the one-year-old, student-founded Making A Difference Club (MAD) to create a more powerful group aimed at community service and education about global issues. The focus of Key Club continues to be community service, but MAD will also be integrating their goals of educating students about global issues and taking action in the community. After the first few meetings of Key Club/MAD, a group of executive board members were elected to represent the club, take on leadership roles, and accept the responsibilities of planning and organization. Sydney Yang, a junior who founded MAD in 2011, was elected president. Also elected as representatives are sophomore, Andrew Grose, junior, Madeline Kelly, and seniors Ryan Zittel, Lily Zehfus, and Alex Romanoski. MAD introduced four themes for the year around which their efforts will be focused: agriculture and sustainability, poverty and homelessness, culture and diversity, and the environment. To introduce the current theme of agriculture and sustainability, a group of students recently took a field trip to the Growing Power urban farm in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Growing Power is a national nonprofit organization based in Milwaukee that aims at creating sustainable and ecological food sources and stable communities. Growing Power consists of six greenhouses, two independent fish runs, seven hoop houses, fourteen beehives, a rainwater catchment system, and outdoor pens for livestock. The MAD group toured the facilities and learned about Growing Power’s mission and success. While on the Growing Power tour, the members of MAD learned about innovative forms of agriculture and sustainability. The members hope to bring what they learned back to the Key Club/MAD group in Kohler to educate the community. One way MAD plans do this is by hosting a screening of the documentary “Fresh,” which features Growing Power and its founder, Will Allen. Also in the works is a technology drive, which incorporates environmental consciousness and sustainability. Unused or outdated technologies such as cell phones, digital cameras, and MP3 players will be collected and sent to a corporation who specializes in recycling such products. Watch for the documentary screening and technology drive in November! Key Club/MAD has high hopes for the year ahead and encourages the community to visit the Facebook page for Making A Difference that features up-to-date news information about the group and pictures from field trips and activities.

Annual Bike/Walk to School Day
October 5th, 2011 was Annual Bike/Walk to School Day. Hundreds of students, parents, teachers participated in this outstanding event. Kohler students were thrilled to enjoy the beautiful weather, get some exercise and cut down on gas consumption as they were greeted by “Bomber” the school mascot dog. They were served healthy treats and enjoyed a time to socialize with one another.

Third graders see things in a new light
By Diane Gafney and Jennifer Roeber Mrs. Roeber’s 3rd Grade class was seen wandering the halls one Wednesday morning and most that passed them, walked a bit slower and stared in wonder of what they were doing. These students were wearing blindfolds and special glasses which simulated a visual impairment, so they didn’t know anyone was watching them. It was all part of a fun and challenging learning experience to help understand what it would be like to do several tasks with reduced or no vision in honor of National White Cane Day. Diane Gafney an Orientation and Mobility Specialist with CESA #7 along with one of her low vision students planned 2 hours of activities for the class. The students wore a blindfold while listening to a children’s book by Beth Finke, Safe and Sound, about a woman and her dog guide. They were asked to visualize and describe what they thought the illustrations looked like. Information about white cane day and dog guides was shared and discussed. Next, the class took part in a craft activity making a beaded keychain that looked like a white and red cane. The challenge was to do so while wearing a blindfold and without seeing the finished project. “This is impossible” and “I can’t do it” were phrases heard initially, but those comments were eventually replaced with, “That was easy!” and “I did it!” All students were proud of their final product and were rewarded with a special “cane cookie.” However, the kids needed to put the finishing touches on the cookie by adding the red stripe and marshmallow tip! YUM! As they enjoyed their cookie, students took to the hall two at a time, for their final challenge – walking with a cane. Each student had an opportunity to “see” what is was like to have low vision and no vision while trying to negotiate the hallway and move from their classroom to another location. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared October 15th as National White Cane Safety Day, and every year since then the U.S.

President, state governors, and city mayors issue a proclamation asking people to observe and celebrate the independence and safety of those who are blind or visually impaired and use white canes or dog guides. You may not realize that there is a White Cane Law in Wisconsin (and every state)…it states: “An operator of a vehicle shall stop the vehicle before approaching closer than ten feet to a pedestrian who is carrying a cane or walking stick which is white in

color or white trimmed with red and which is held in an extended or raised position or who is using a dog guide and shall take such precautions as may be necessary to avoid accident or injury to the pedestrian. The fact that the pedestrian may be violating any of the laws applicable to pedestrians does not relieve the operator of a vehicle from the duties imposed by this subsection.” WI statute s.346.26 (1) Those of us who know about

White Cane Day and the white cane law look at this as an opportunity to help spread the word and to be a little more understanding of people who are blind or visually impaired. After these special activities there are now many third graders who have a much better understanding of what it is like to do different types of tasks without vision and just how important those white canes are.
