Rebecca Rabideaux

Joe Hildebrand

Hello Kohler, WI! My name is


Rebecca Rabideaux. After spending the past six years studying and
working in Iowa, I am happy to
be home. I graduated from Drake
University for the second time in
May. You see, I loved Drake so
much I stayed after I completed
my Bachelors degree in Biochemistry, Cell, and Molecular
Biology with a minor in Biology
to complete a Masters Degree in
Teaching with a focus in Biology
and Chemistry Education. While
studying for my Masters Degree,
I had the awesome opportunity
to work in an international food
chemistry lab. That was an invaluable experience! I was born
and raised in a southwest suburb
of Milwaukee. And though I was
a Falcon in high school, matriculating with none other than former
Badgers Quarterback Joel Stave,
I am a loyal Iowa Hawkeyes fan.
One of my younger brothers is
a student at U-Iowa. My family
has season tickets for Hawkeyes
football and we like to say we are
black & gold at heart. I cannot
wait to trade in all of these colors
for Bomber Blue this fall! I am
so excited to join your incredible
Kohler School team. I look forward to teaching and learning with
all of the wonderful students here.
Be sure to say Hello to me when
you see me around town.

It is with great Kohler pride that


I announce to you that I will be
serving as your new Athletic and
Activities Director for the Kohler
School District. I am excited to
work with the students, sta, families and coaches to help lead our
district to new heights of athletic
excellence. I will be entering my
eighteenth year in education and
third year as an Athletic Director.
I started my career as an Athletic
Director and then transitioned to
teaching physical education while
also coaching multiple sports at
various levels. During my rst
couple of weeks at Kohler I have
been very impressed to witness
the dedication to academics displayed by the students and their
families. I am condent that this
same dedication will be brought in
the athletic realm where our students will be challenged daily to
seek their personal limits of excellence. I currently reside in Grafton
with my wife Michelle and my
four kids, Bennett (11), Carson
(9), Brynlee (7), and Cooper (3). I
wish you all a wonderful and safe
remainder of your summer and I
look forward to seeing many of
you when we begin our sports seasons in the Fall.

Eva Stokes

Ms. Stokes is thrilled to join the


Kohler community. After growing up in the Milwaukee area,
and then attending the University
of Wisconsin- Eau Claire, she is
very excited to return to Eastern
Wisconsin. Ms. Stokes graduated
in 2015 with a Bachelors of Music
Education in Choral and General
Music. Her passion lies with Middle and High School and cant wait
to get started as the Choral Music
Teacher at Kohler. Throughout her
time at Wisconsins Singing University, Ms. Stokes had a variety
of performance and education experiences, including international
and national tours, cabaret and
recital performances and teaching
practicums at all levels.
It is my honor to join one of the
top school districts for music education and a community that truly
values the arts. I strive to engage
students and provide a variety of
both musical and non-musical experiences. I am so excited to work
with all the fantastic students,
teachers, administration and parents of the Kohler community!

Ryan Eigenberger

Katie Felckowski

Hello, my name is Ryan Eigenberger and I am the new Social


Studies and English teacher at
Kohler High School. Originally
from Sheboygan, Ive lived in the
area my whole life. I graduated
from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a History
B.S. and Political Science minor.
While attending U Dub Dub, I
played baseball for one season and
worked in the Intramural Department for four. I was a supervisor
and the sport coordinator for both
basketball and ag football. And I
still ociate basketball today.
In my free time I enjoy playing
with my dogs, Oliver and Luke,
reading, and playing any sport
possible. This fall I will also be on
the sidelines helping the football
program. Teaching and coaching
are my two biggest passions. I enjoy interacting with the phenomenal students of Kohler on both
levels.

Hello everyone! My name is


Katie Felckowski and I am thrilled
to be the new sixth and seventh
grade English teacher at Kohler
Middle School. Prior to accepting
this position in the Kohler School
District, I was a K-12 substitute
teacher in the Stevens Point School
District as well as a student teacher in the Tomorrow River School
District. I received my Bachelors
Degree in Secondary English Education from the University of
Wisconsin - Stevens Point. This
will be my rst year teaching, and
I cannot express how lucky and
excited I am to work for such a
prestigious school district with a
wonderfully collaborative faculty
in the tremendous community of
Kohler.

Kohler grad presents


at Mayo Clinic for
undergrad research
Valerie Linck, a 2013 Kohler
grad who is entering her junior
year at Emory University in Atlanta, culminated a summer undergrad renal research fellowship
with a presentation at the Mayo
Clinic Kidney, Urologic and Hematologic Research Conference in
early August, 2016. The presentation included students from Emory, Yale, Harvard, and Vanderbilt.
At the conference, Valerie was
able to meet Dr. Peter Agree,
the 2003 Nobel Prize winner in
Chemistry for his research on
channels in the kidney.
The fellowship, sponsored
by the National Institute of
Health, provided a full grant for
a ten week research in an area
related to kidneys. Valeries area
related to the study of mice with
high and low fat and high and low
salt diets to measure the impact
that certain aspects may have on
diabetes and high blood pressure
with mice that were lacking cer-

tain compounds. She used a special genetic breeding pair of mice


to develop mice with the tendencies needed for the study.
Valeries work was done in the
Emory School of Medicine research labs under the direction of
Dr. Eaton, Chair of Physiology at
Emory University. She has been
working in these labs with mice
since January of this year. During
her work, she needed to draw
blood and take the blood pressure
of mice. In order to complete her
research, Valerie performed surgery on the mice to remove kidneys to be able to run the necessary tests to develop a research
conclusion.
Valerie gained her love for Biology during an AP Biology class
and as a lab assistant with Kohler
High School science teacher Jesse
Good. Valerie is studying Biology
with a focus on entering the medical eld.

September 1st. Johnsonville Sausage was happy to meet the Pepsi
challenge and gave a very generous donation, too.
Since 2013, we have raised
$6,200, and we thank profusely
everyone who donated to our project. We are over the halfway point
of our $10,000 goal!

Literacy Council seeks volunteers


Literacy Council of Sheboygan
County is looking for volunteer
tutors to work with adult students
who want to improve their reading, writing or English Language
skills. No background skills are
necessary, but patience and time
and a desire to make a dierence
in someones life are! Low literacy aects 8% of Sheboygan
County residents and impacts
their family, health and employment. The refugee population of
Sheboygan County is increasing.
We currently assist students from
Bosnia, El Salvador, Columbia,
Laos, Peru, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Jordan, Mexico, Thailand, Nepal, Burma, Venezuela
and Russia. We collaborate with
local churches and organizations
who sponsor the refugees, local
libraries and LTC on how we can

meet the needs of all who need


literacy help and to recruit volunteer tutors. When Sheboygan
County adults acquire greater
literacy skills, our whole community benets with a more qualied workforce, more involved
citizens and parents and a higher
standard of living.
We train tutors to work oneon-one with adult learners at a
public location, such as a library
or place of employment for 1-2
hours a week. Volunteers also
benet from our program by
helping people in the community, learning about other cultures
and by identifying with a global
cause. International Literacy Day
is coming up on September 8!
Please call me if you have questions about our program or contact Carol Dussault at 207-0909.

IRS Warns of back-to-school scams; encourages


students, parents, schools to stay alert
WASHINGTON The Internal
Revenue Service today warned
taxpayers against telephone scammers targeting students and parents during the back-to-school
season and demanding payments
for non-existent taxes, such as the
Federal Student Tax.
People should be on the lookout
for IRS impersonators calling students and demanding that they wire
money immediately to pay a fake
federal student tax. If the person
does not comply, the scammer becomes aggressive and threatens to
report the student to the police to
be arrested. As schools around the
nation prepare to re-open, it is important for taxpayers to be particularly aware of this scheme going
after students and parents.
Although variations of the IRS
impersonation scam continue yearround, they tend to peak when
scammers nd prime opportunities
to strike, said IRS Commissioner
John Koskinen. As students and
parents enter the new school year,
they should remain alert to bogus
calls, including those demanding
fake tax payments from students.
The IRS encourages college and
school communities to share this
information so that students, parents and their families are aware of
these scams.

Scammers are constantly identifying new tactics to carry out their


crimes in new and unsuspecting
ways. This year, the IRS has seen
scammers use a variety of schemes
to fool taxpayers into paying money or giving up personal information. Some of these include:
Altering the caller ID on incoming phone calls in a spoong
attempt to make it seem like the
IRS, the local police or another
agency is calling
Imitating
software
providers to trick tax professionals--IR-2016-103
Demanding
fake tax payments using iTunes gift cards-IR-2016-99
Soliciting W-2 information from
payroll and human resources
professionals--IR-2016-34
Verifying tax return information over the phone--IR-2016-40
Pretending to be from the
tax
preparation
industry--IR-2016-28

Generally, the IRS will rst mail


you a bill if you owe any taxes.
Threaten to immediately bring
in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you
arrested for not paying.
Demand that you pay taxes
without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the
amount they say you owe.
Ask for credit or debit card
numbers over the phone.
If you get a suspicious phone call
from someone claiming to be from
the IRS and asking for money,
heres what you should do:
Do not give out any information.
Hang up immediately.
Search the web for telephone
numbers scammers leave in your
voicemail asking you to call
back. Some of the phone numbers may be published online
and linked to criminal activity.
Contact TIGTA to report the
call. Use their IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting web page
If you receive an unexpected call or call 800-366-4484.
from someone claiming to be from Report it to the Federal Trade

KPAL seeks new members


The Kohler Police Athletic League is
looking for new male members. If you
live in the Village of Kohler or the Kohler
School District and are interested in joining a benevolent organization, we might
be just for you. The KPAL was formed
in 1954 and has been supporting Kohler
Youth ever since. The group has two major fundraisers a year, the KPAL Brat Fry
(3rd Sunday in February) and the KPAL/
Lions Oktoberfest (Sept 9th & 10th this
year).
We donate approximately $12,000 a
year to worthy causes, 2016 donations included: (2) $1,500 scholarships to Kohler
graduates; over $2,000 for Boy and Girls
Basketball programs; $3,350 for Village
of Kohler Recreation Baseball; and most
recently $2,500 for the Kohler Girls Swim
Team starting blocks. The starting blocks
purchase was a joint eort between the
Village of Kohler, Kohler Schools and
the Kohler Girls Swim Team. The KPAL
also annually supports the Kohler Youth

Football program and the Boy Scout and


Girl Scouts of Kohler. The monies donated support eorts that maybe otherwise
would not be happen.
The KPAL wants to thank all those in
the community that support our eorts.
The money we raise is thoughtfully spent
on youth and their activities to make
Kohler a great place to live and raise a
family. We arent able to do the entire
fundraising ourselves. Many wives,
friends and other family members regularly help with our fundraising events. We
appreciate all that everyone does for our
great organization.
The next meeting for the KPAL is Sept
14th in the Kohler Village Hall at 7 pm.
The KPAL regularly meet on the second Wednesday of the month. There are
nominal dues of $25, which support the
members meals and social time after the
monthly meetings. If you are interested,
please consider attending a meeting and
joining our organization.



Kohler family achieves


goal of visiting all 50 states
The Jarentowski family recently returned from a trip to
Alaska, thus completing their
goal of visiting all 50 of the
United States.
Michael and JulieAnn
Jarentowski wanted to travel with their two children,
Zachary, age 15, and Lauren,
age 11, while the couple was
still relatively young enough
to enjoy good health and had
the time. They wanted to
complete their goal of visiting all 50 states before Zachary turned 16 and became too
busy with school activities
and jobs. If the kids were too
young to remember a destination, the family would
return to it when they were
older.
The familys Alaska trip
included a seven day cruise
and three days on the main-

land. I traveled the country


with my family when I was a
child and I wanted to experience the same beauty, history
and adventure with my children. Those are memories
that I will never forget and
cant be taken away, said
Michael.
Vacation planning has become something of a family
hobby, according to Michael. He researches ights,
rental cars and hotels while
JulieAnn plans the attractions and activities. Typical
vacations last about ten days,
but have been as short as a
weekend at the Jersey Shore
and as long as three weeks
visiting the entire southeast.
The kids not only enjoy traveling, but they have
found it very educational.
They have often covered

topics in school about the


very places they have visited. Having that rsthand
knowledge is something a
textbook or classroom cannot
replicate. Our hope is that
by giving our children these
experiences, they will want
to do the same with their children! said Michael.
Other places visited by the
Jarentowski family include
Canada, Italy, Sicily, Switzerland, Mexico, Bahamas,
Belize, Honduras, Puerto
Rico, St. Thomas, St. John,
and St. Martin.
Zacharys favorite state is
Hawaii and Laurens favorite
state is Nevada. Zachary will
be a sophomore and Lauren
is entering the sixth grade at
Kohler Schools.

are not as safe. The safest location would be to drop
students o on the north side by the canopy. Follow

Summer 2016
Summer 2016 has been focused
upon improving systems that will have
significant impact on our entire learning
community. It has been a quiet and
reflective month since school has been
out.
Strategic Communications and School
Perceptions
Stemming from the School Perceptions
Strategic Communications Plan, the
administration is taking on a number
of summer initiatives. The first involves
working with community members and
staff to improve our Sneak Peek and
Open House activities. Feedback and
discussion surrounded putting more
structure around these events in order
to provide our community a sense
of purpose and information sharing.
All members of the team agreed that
this should help drive attendance and
relevance at all levels, elementary, middle
and high school. Specific to this was
information for orientating new parents
as well as transitioning students to the
specific schools. The second initiative
will specifically target communications.
We are in the process of developing and
piloting an electronic newsletter that will
be sent out monthly to regularly update
all stakeholders as to that which is
happening in our building.
