Students Host Computer Classes for Senior Citizens

Since 2014, Kaukauna High School’s National Honor Society students have offered a series of computer classes each year, designed specifically for senior citizens in our community. The classes will be available again this year, held on January 24th, February 28th and March 14th, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the computer labs at Kaukauna High School, 1701 County CE. This is a free course. The classes are designed for all experience levels on any device (phone, computer, tablet, etc.) and will cover topics like: How to get started using computers; word processing; internet basics; using search engines; online shopping; social media; and more! National Honor Society students will serve as instructors and class assistants, teaching basic skills and working 1-on-1 with attendees to answer individual questions. Last year, then juniors James Murphy and Ben Brochtrup revamped the curriculum for the popular class as one of their service projects, making sure that all of the material was up to date with current technology standards and that the classes were covering topics that were of greatest interest to the community they were serving. “By pairing up National Honor Society students with class members, we created a very relaxed learning environment where class members could move at their own pace. While some had specific problems they were looking to address, others simply wanted to know more about technology and its growing impact on the world around them,” said Ben, now a senior at KHS and a National Honor Society leader. “We found that technology served as a great medium for two drastically different generations to connect.” “I have had so much fun helping run the class. It’s so cool to see the connection between our NHS members and the community,” added James, also now a senior and National Honor Society leader. “We made it both as fun and informational as possible, and the class members are so kind and eager to learn.” Participants are welcome to bring their own devices, but computers will be available on-site as well. The deadline for registration for the Computer Classes is Monday, January 22rd. To register, call Karla Miller-Flynn at (920) 766- 6113 ext. 5826, or email miller-flynnka@kaukaunasd.org. Please include your name, phone number, level of experience with computers and any specific topics you would like to see covered.

"Be the Change"

KaukaunaStudents have accepted the challenge to "Be the Change." In an effort to promote mutual respect and acceptance throughout our school and community, the Kaukauna Area School District will host Challenge Days on January 8-9 at River View Middle School and January 10-11 at Kaukauna High School. The International Challenge Day program was designed to help build connection and empathy among students by breaking down barriers that separate them and promoting understanding, acceptance and respect. Pushing beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, the 6-1/2 hour program challenges participating students, teachers, counselors and parents to step outside of their comfort zones to build connections with others through a series of games, activities and trust-building exercises. "We're looking forward to giving our students the opportunity to participate in this eye-opening, emotionally-challenging program," said Karen Wirth, School Social Worker. "Celebrating our differences and building mutual respect is the key to growth and unity within our community." Kaukauna High School Sophomore Maisie Prellwitz participated in the program during her 8th grade year at River View, and will again participate this year at the high school. "Challenge Days are a chance for us to connect with other students on a more personal level,” Maisie. “The experience helped me open up to others, and I learned not to judge people by how they portray themselves during school but instead, understand them and the signs that they show when they are struggling. After hearing their stories, I gained a much deeper understanding of who they are.” To learn more about the work of Challenge Day, please visit www.challengeday.org.

District Technology Leaders Present at SLATE

On December 5th, four KASDstaff memberspresented at SLATE (School Leaders Advancing Technology in Education),a state-wide educational technology conference hosted by the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA). River View Middle School teachers Kim Leisgang and Kyrstn Bergh presented a session on the use of classroom tools Nearpod and Screencastify, whichwork together to get students more involved in their classroom activities using their Chromebooks. Kaukauna High School Library Media Specialist and Technology Coach Kevin Hietpas, along with District Technology Coordinator Jim Geoffrey, presented a session about how technology can be used to bring more authentic assessment practices into our classroom.They focused on specific tools and practices that have been initiated within the past year in our district. Both sessions had high attendance and were well received by participants. While not presenting, these staff members were busy learning about both technology resources and how to successfully integrate them into their practice. OnDecember 12th, Jim Geoffrey and Angela Brown will be presenting at the TIES conference in Minneapolis, where they will lead two sessions: one on Chromebooks in 1st grade, and another on the use of our new Interactive Touch Panels at the elementary level.

Kaukauna Schools Exceed Expectations

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) released School Report Cards for all Wisconsin publicly-funded schools and districts on November 21, 2017. Kaukauna Area School District again earned outstanding scores: Victor Haen Elementary School and Park Community Charter School earned the “Significantly Exceeds Expectations” distinction; Electa Quinney Elementary School, New Directions Learning Community and River View Middle School earned a place in the “Exceeds Expectations” category; and Kaukauna High School is meeting expectations. Tanner Early Learning Center has a student body that it too young to take the standardized tests, and therefore, is not included in the DPI’s annual review. Because of the significant growth and success at the school level, our combined district accountability score and rating, landed KASD in the “Exceeds Expectations” category for the second year in a row. “These report cards are more evidence of the academic growth that continues to occur in the Kaukauna Area School District,” said Superintendent Mark Duerwaechter. “This is another proud moment for KASD, and we will continue down this path toward success. We didn’t come this far, to only come this far. Our staff and students continue to put in the work, achieve success and grow every day.” DPI’s School Report Cards are intended to help schools and districts examine data across four priority areas: Student Achievement, measured by proficiency in reading and mathematics on state assessments Student Growth, measured by year-to-year improvements in achievement Closing Gaps in performance On-track and Postsecondary Readiness Test participation, absenteeism and dropout rates are also measured. Kaukauna Area School District’s current report cards are all available on the Kaukauna Area School District’s District and School Performance web page. Past report cards can be viewed on the Wisconsin DPI website.

In order to be nominated, student-athletes must meet the following criteria: A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25 Participation in at least 75% of their team’s varsity matches At least a sophomore in high school These students serve as a great example to others, proving that academic and athletic successes are not mutually exclusive.

In fact, the average cumulative GPA of this year’s honorees is an exceptional 3.785.

Besides honoring both boys and girls who succeed as student athletes, the association also selects an annual All-State team for boys and girls based on their playing ability. An academic ‘Team’ award honoring high school teams with the highest cumulative GPA is also acknowledged. The girls’ team award will be announced in February, 2018.
