Wausaukee Homecoming Includes Sept. 28 Tailgate

Issue Date: September 27, 2018

The Wausaukee Board of Education held its September regular board meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12 in the district's media center. A brief work session was held prior to the regular meeting for discussion on the X-Matrix, a document used to monitor progress toward the district's goals, and an update on the NWTC conversion of the welding and automotive lab.

Late in the meeting, bid for conversion of the NWTC welding and automotive area was awarded to Fisher and Associates- Architects/ Planners out of Green Bay for $16,350.

The regular meeting was called to order by Board President Sandy Wojcik. During time for public comment Roger Lanich expressed his gratitude for the girls' volleyball team, and complimented team members on their kindness toward others, including himself.

Under correspondence, the district received a Thank You from the Wausaukee Back-to-School Program Committee for use of school facilities to distribute backpacks filled with school supplies for the students of Wausaukee that were in need.

The board was advised that the district once again was awarded a REAP (Small Rural School Achievement Program) grant in the amount of $44,828 for the 2018/2019 school year. In addition to the REAP Grant, the District also will receive a $633.48 award from the CTE (Career and Technical Education) Incentive Grant from a student who graduated that earned an industry-recognized certification.

Junior High/High School Principal Jared Deschane reported on a successful three and a half day inservice in August. One of the days was focused on safety. Deschane thanked Detective Dan Miller and Lieutenant Jason Ducane of Marinette County Sheriff's Department for taking time out of their day for presenting on internet safety and crisis situations.

Also during inservice, Chris VanHoof from CESA 8 met with each of the four academic departments at the high school. VanHoof told Deschane, "It was a great day, and your staff, even the non-core people, were fantastic, really engaged and deeply thinking about the ACT standards compared to what they currently teach." VanHoof will be returning for another inservice on Friday, Oct. 12.

Deschane reported that students were involved and engaged when classes began on Tuesday, Sept. 4, and termed the day "a great start to the new school year."

The Wausaukee Ranger Booster Club will be hosting a tailgate from 5 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, prior to the homecoming varsity football game against Gillett.

Compliments of the Wausaukee Ranger Booster Club, the W-Club and the Classes of 2016 and 2017, the high school gym will be receiving new end wall mats at no cost to the district. Deschane stated that the mats will be a nice addition to the newly refinished gym floor.

Elementary Principal Katey Ambrose reported that at the open house on Wednesday, Aug. 29, students and families were welcomed with a brief presentation and then got to meet all of the elementary teachers. From there, students and families were invited into the classrooms and enjoyed a pizza supper provided by the district.

Ambrose echoed Deschane on the success of inservice. She thanked presenter Dennis Rockhill for sharing his ideas, concepts and implementation of MakerSpace, which is by definition, "a place in which people with shared interests can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment and knowledge." Ambrose also thanked Romy and Brenda Blystone with PEP Talks who focused on developing a healthy culture in the workplace. She said the core function of the elementary school is student social, emotional and academic learning, success and well-being.

District Administrator Bob Berndt began his report by complementing both Ambrose and Deschane on their hard work and leadership during their preparation for the new school year. "As administrators, our focus is on a collegial environment, problem solving, trust, clear communication, academic excellence and family," he said.

On the same note, Berndt thanked the Wausaukee Back to School Program Committee along co-chairs Betty Figas and Sandy Wojcik and numerous volunteers who organized and supplied Wausaukee needy students with over 100 filled backpacks.

Berndt informed the Board that WASB (Wisconsin Association of School Boards) will be hosting a fall regional board meeting in Green Bay on Tuesday, Oct. 16. The workshop will include legal requirements for meetings and board member roles, along with how to conduct an effective board meeting and accommodate public participation.

Under Board Comments, Board Member Eric VanLaanen thanked the school and surrounding communities for their support during the Michael Schroeder Benefit on Saturday, Sept. 8. VanLaanen, who headed organization of the Schroeder Benefit, deemed it a huge success.

Daycare Director Mindi Kempinski reported that the daycare currently has 78 students enrolled. Facilities have expanded to three classrooms and it is thriving. The daycare has collaborated with the Wausaukee Public Library, which brings people into the classrooms once a month to help encourage students to be healthy readers early in life.

Food Service Director Julie Behnke reported that both administrative reviews completed by the Department of Public Instruction for the National School Lunch Program and the Summer Food Service Program found everything to be in order and in compliance.

Behnke was pleased to report that the new milk cooler and the new soup kettle have been purchased and installed thanks to an Equipment Grant that was awarded to the District. She said both pieces of equipment are nice improvements to the kitchen. The Food Service Program finished the 2017/2018 school year with a profit, as it did in the previous year.

Under New Business, the board set the Annual Meeting/Budget Hearing for Tuesday, October 23rd beginning at 6 p.m. in the school auditorium. A special Board meeting will follow the annual meeting to set and certify the levy.

The Board approved the ACP (Academic and Career Planning) handbook, PI 26 Plan and the Wausaukee Little Learners Center Daycare Parent and Staff handbooks.

New to the District, the Board approved the hiring of Eric Flanders for a paraprofessional position, welcomed back Sarah Wagner as the halftime special education early childhood teaching position, and Miranda Martin as the school speech pathologist with the guidance from DotCom Therapy.

In other business, the board approved six "Start College Now" applications for the program previously known as Youth Options, and two Alternative Open Enrollment applications.
