School News

"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

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.

Join our Lambeau Booth!

Our Lambeau booth continues to be a great fundraiser! We are well on our way to our goal of $10,000.00 for the year from this new opportunity. The hope is that with Lambeau, our golf outing and the Kaukauna Strong Challenge running well we will not need to do the multitude of smaller fundraisers we have done in past years. By working one shift at Lambeau our school receives on average $130.00 for your time. We are not asking you to buy anything, we just need your time to be successful. In December our school will be welcoming an instructor from Conscious Discipline to our school for two days of training with staff. She will be demonstrating the latest techniques with students on the first day and will spend the second day working directly with staff. This training costs our charter over $7,000.00 and is not supported with district funds. Here are the remaining games on the Packer schedule for this year. We need at least 12 people for our booth to run smoothly which is a much more enjoyable experience for all workers. You do not have to be connected to our school in any way to help out. You just need to be 18 or over. Monday November 6th 7:30 pm Kickoff Sunday November 19th Noon Kickoff Sunday December 3rd Noon Kickoff Saturday December 23rd 7:30 pm Kickoff Workers DO NOT need to be connected to our school. Bring friends, co-workers or other adults to help our school be successful in this fundraiser. We are not asking you to buy anything with this fundraiser we just need your help. Those working an event need to be at Lambeau 2 hours before the event and remain after the event until cleared to leave by Delaware North Staff. A typical game day will be a 8 hour shift. The potential for a large profit is great! Some organizations our size have made up to $30,000.00! As you can see from preseason we are well on our way to exceeding our goal. Money raised this year is targeted towards continued staff development in Conscious Discipline. This year we are bringing in a national trainer to our school December 11th and 12th. This training alone will cost over $7,000.00. Click Here to sign Up NOW to work the best dates! Vicki Kerry Governance Board Member Packer Booth Coordinator

Happy November! Now that Fall is in full swing (with the weather to prove it), and November is finally here, it's a great time to step back and reflect on what makes Kaukauna Area School District so special. We wouldn't be where we are without the support of so many, and so, this November, we'd like to give thanks where it is due. Each day in November, look for#KASDThanks30 on ourDistrict'sFacebook and Twitter pages, a chance for us to thank those individuals and groups that support our District and keep us Kaukauna Strong.
