On February 23, 2012 parent
volunteer, Caren Chung received
the Friend of Counseling Award
from the Wisconsin School Coun-
selor Association at their annual
conference in Madison. Caren was
nominated by Laura Multer,
School Counselor, Martin Lex-
mond, High School Principal and
Susan Jaberg, Elementary and
Middle School Principal for the
hundreds of hours she has devoted
to Kind Matters. Kind Matters is
the Kohler School Districts posi-
tive approach to bullying and
building a more caring community.
According to Laura Multer, Caren
is a true friend of the school coun-
seling profession as she not only
supports our work, but she embod-
ies our mission as well to serve
all the students so that they might
each reach their full potential. She
fully understands how the emo-
tional well-being of students as
well as their social interactions are
key parts of academic success.
She is a true advocate for students
and school counseling. Congratu-
lations to Caren on this well de-
served recognition, said Multer.

The
Villager
The past sev-
eral weeks
have created
much turmoil
for WI, both
at the state
and local lev-
els. As Gov-
ernor Scott
Walkers budget bill winds itself
through the courts and the legisla-
tive process, concerns still remain
at the local level. In the end,
though, it should be realized that
communities will have to respond
to the budget as approved by the
House, the Senate and the Gover-
nor. In any case, it can be safely
said that all of us are ready to bring
the divisive issues to rest and move
onas the rights and dignities of
all are respected.
With the inevitability that com-
munities will be receiving less
State aid for their schools, less
shared revenue for community
services, and a freeze on tax levy
increases, your local governments
and school boards will experience
severe limitations on their upcom-
ing budgets. It is almost certain
that communities will have to
tighten their belts as the 2012
budgets are put in place.
Through all of this, however,
the education of our young people
cannot be abrogated and the youth
of today cannot be viewed as ex-
pendable commodities. The viable
future of any nation rests in its
young people. Mr. Marty Lex-
mond, District Superintendent,
definitely walks a tight rope in
working with the School Board,
the district staff, the students, and
the community while attempting to
maintain the strength of the Kohler
School Districts overall programs.
All of us have our personal beliefs
and agendas as to how it should be
done. In the end, though, we
should be unified on one front: the
future of our nation rests with the
youth of today. My personal best
wishes are extended to Mr. Marty
Lexmond, School Board President
Dr. Jane Bishop, and the other four
School Board members, and the
school staff as they pull together to
offer the best possible educational
programs for the youth of our com-
munity.
The Kohler Civic Club was or-
ganized one year ago and meets at
noon on the first and third Thurs-
day of each month. Meetings rotate
between Blackwolf Run Restau-
rant and Pine Hills Country Club.
In early May, the Village of Kohler
2011-12 Directory will be deliv-
ered to your homes and/or places
of business. The Club members are
working feverishly on the plans for
a Village of Kohler Cemetery Vet-
erans Memorial. A view of the
proposed plans will be forthcom-
ing soon; it is anticipated that an
architectural design will be dis-
played at the Kohler Cemetery for
the 2011 annual Memorial Day Pa-
rade. Plans include the unveiling
of the Veterans Memorial at the
2012 Memorial Day Parade, which
would be a highlight for the Vil-
lage of Kohler Centennial. If you
are interested in becoming a mem-
ber of this illustrious club, please
contact President Richard Balge
(920-694-1918).
The Village Centennial Com-
mittee continues to meet regularly.
We are pleased to welcome Cindy
Howley, Kohler Co. Representa-
tive, to the committee. Cindy is an
important addition, since her input
will bring to the table the history of
the Village of Kohler from the per-
spective of the Kohler Co. Other
Committee members are the Vil-
lage Board President, Amy Biznek,
Tom Leonhardt, Sheryl Lindstrom,
and Peter Fetterer.
The April 11th Board Meeting
will conclude my eight years as a
Village Board member including
my last eight months as interim
Board President. A personal void
is still felt with the untimely death
of Steve Reinbacher. Sincere con-
dolences continue to be with Ann
Reinbacher and her family.
During these eight years, I have
had the privilege of serving on the
Board in several different capaci-
ties. My primary role for several
years was Chairperson of the Prop-
erty Committee. In looking back,
several projects were completed
during that time. Among those
were the new roof on Kohler Me-
morial Hall Building, construction
of the Village Childrens Swim-
ming Pool, and the Lost Woods
Park Pavilion. Included are the up-
keep and replacement of several
streets including School Street,
renovation of Kohler Memorial
Hall/Theatre/Gym, extension of
sewer/water line on Woodland
Road, and the list goes on. Sincere
thanks are extended to Bruce Neer-
hof, DPW Superintendent, with
whom I worked closely for ad-
dressing the property agendas for
the Village; Laurie Lindow, Village
Clerk/Treasurer; and Cindi Gamb,
Deputy Clerk/Treasurer. Also, it
was an honor to serve with past
Presidents Oscar Ward and
Thomas Leonhardt.
My best of wishes are extended
to your anticipated new Board
President, Thomas Schnettler, and
the successful three of the four
candidates for trustee positions:
Thomas Gast, William Kunst,
Brian Post, and Dietmar Wohlge-
muth.
Again, thanks to all who have
made my position on the board
possible and to those with whom I
have worked. It has been an honor
in having served on the Kohler Vil-
lage Board!!!
Best of wishes

Clutter To Comfort Helps
Local People Declutter and
Get Organized
Started by a psychotherapist with 35
years of experience, Clutter To Com-
fort will work side-by-side with people
to clear their homes, heads and hearts
of unwanted clutter, from the empty
nesters who want to downsize to those
with emotional attachments to their
homes full of treasures from floor to
ceiling.
SHEBOYGAN, WI (Mar. 1, 2012) -
Clutter To Comfort is a new business
providing in-home coaching and coun-
seling to help people declutter and re-
organize their space in a functional and
pleasing manner. Owned by Pamela
Hertel, the business serves Sheboygan
County and beyond. Hertel is a Li-
censed Psychotherapist and a Profes-
sional Organizer, and is the only
member of the National Association of
Professional Organizers Wisconsin
Chapter to have both credentials.
As recent media has showcased an
emphasis on simplicity and declutter-
ing, popular television shows have
also shown the extremes to which
some people hoard. Hertel is prepared
to deal with the continuum of organi-
zation needs from basic clean up to
overcrowding due to hoarding. Hertel
will help clients assess their organiza-
tional needs, determine an action plan,
and provide services to reach the iden-
tified goals. Targeted areas may in-
clude one room or an entire home;
office and paperwork clutter; and
garages, basements, attics or storage
units. People may also use Clutter To
Comfort services for help in downsiz-
ing a home; blending two households;
preparing a home for sale; packing for
a move; getting reorganized after a
move; seniors transitioning to smaller
housing; or empty nesters wanting to
re-purpose space.
Hertel uses a self-paced approach,
respecting the clients needs. The goal
is to create a space which is functional,
organized and decorated in a fashion
which suits the clients comfort. Clut-
ter To Comfort services include:
coaching clients on how to eliminate
clutter and reduce its recurrence;
working side-by-side with clients in
the clearing out and cleaning up
process; and implementing decisions
on what and how to discard.
Hertel uses her 35 years of experi-
ence in education and counseling to as-
sist persons through the emotional
issues which may contribute to clutter
behaviors. A confidential and compas-
sionate approach is used. Individual,
couple and family therapy is available
in the home or office, addressing men-
tal health concerns of depression, anx-
iety, relationship challenges, and life
adjustment issues. The goal of therapy
is to help shift clients thinking, feeling
and behavior patterns to ways which
better promote their overall wellness
and contentment.
Clutter To Comfort also offers
workshops and consultations on how
to declutter and what to do when you
are concerned about anothers clutter.
In observance of Clutter Awareness
Week (the last week of March), Hertel
is hosting a two-hour workshop on
Saturday, March 24th, from 9:00 until
11:00 a.m. The program will be held
at the Clutter To Comfort office loca-
tion in Sheboygan Falls. Cost is $25
per person and pre-registration is re-
quired.

To Comfort, or to register for the
workshop, contact Pam at (920) 946-

The Kohler Triad Swim team
has completed their second official
year. They consist of four schools:
Kohler, Lutheran High School,
Sheboygan Falls High School, and
Sheboygan Christian. They are
relatively new team, having only
been started in 2009, but have
come a long way. The season starts
in early August and lasts until mid
November. The girls swim hard at
practice and swim about thirteen
hours a week, not including meets.
Weve really come a long way
and with the help of the commu-
nity we can go even further, said
Erin Lammers. We have a great
team atmosphere and we have fun
together. The team motto is Atti-
tude is everything and it certainly
shows in the team. The girls are al-
ways ready to do anything pre-
sented to them at practice or a meet
and the whole team is down at the
end of the pool cheering the swim-
mers on. The girls came in second
in Conference this year, only be-
hind Plymouth. They also came in
9th of 12 swimming Div. 1 at sec-
tionals. The team is looking for-
ward to another great season and
hopes to host some meets in the fu-
ture.

Soccer programs success
extends beyond high school
Everyone in the village is aware
of the success of the boys high
school soccer program. The Blue
Bomber boys have racked up many
awards over the past five years in-
cluding three conference champi-
onships, five regional champion-
ships, a sectional championship
and state runner up last year. What
you may not know is that several
players have taken their high
school experience and success
with them into college. Currently
there are four soccer alumni play-
ing college ball:
AJ Armstrong (Class of 2007)
plays defender for Wisconsin
Lutheran College. He was a team
captain and key player when the
Blue Bombers went an undefeated
14-0 to win the Central Lakeshore
Conference (CLC) in 2007.
Kevin Beine (Class of 2009)
plays for St. Norberts College. He
was a team captain and second
team All Conference defender for
Kohler in last years run to state.
Jimmy Mani (Class of 2007)
plays for UW Sheboygan and was
recently named 2nd team All Con-
ference in the Wisconsin Colle-
giate Conference. Jimmy was the
CLC leading scorer in 2007 for the
Bombers. He also received 1st
team All Conference and All State
(Honorable Mention) honors.
Austin Van Treeck (Class of
2009) plays for Ripon College and
has two goals and an assist in his
first year playing college ball.
Austin was the conference leading
scorer last year and an All Confer-
ence selection for the Blue
Bombers.
Austin recently sat down to
feild some questions about his col-
lege experience so far:
What is it like to play soccer at
the college level?
Playing soccer at the college
level is everything I dreamed it
would be and more. It is a lot more
physical and the amount of time
and effort put into it becomes your
lifestyle.
What was the biggest difference
from high school?
I would say the biggest differ-
ence between high school soccer
and college soccer is the overall
pace of the game. You need to an-
ticipate your next move and your
opponents moves even more than
in high school.
Did you feel well prepared
when you went out for the team?
When I arrived at our first day
of practice I felt lost and out of
sync. It took some time to transi-
tion and get used to the speed of
play. Also my conditioning need
much improvement.
I see you were moved from for-
ward to midfielder/defender. How
was that transition?
Yes, my first time on the field
in a game I played outside mid-
fielder. I was just told to work hard
and run until I couldn't anymore.
The transition was brutal but gave
me a better perception of what it
took to play that position and what
players had done in that position in
order to get the ball up to the for-
wards.
What was it like to score your
first college goal?
My first college goal was in-
credible. It was an overtime game
winning shot from about 30 yards.
I actually didnt' get to see it be-
cause I was immediately knocked
over after I took the shot. It was
not a realistic first goal but either
way it felt incredible to have a goal
and know that I did something to
benefit the team.
What advice would you give to
kids in the village dreaming about
playing college soccer?
To all those who dream of the
chance to play college soccer or
even those who want to play high
school soccer, my advice to them
is keep working hard consistently
and don't let anyone tell you are in-
adequate and you won't make it. If
you give it your all you will be
happy with the outcome.

The Kohler Triad Swim team
has completed their second official
year. They consist of four schools:
Kohler, Lutheran High School,
Sheboygan Falls High School, and
Sheboygan Christian. They are
relatively new team, having only
been started in 2009, but have
come a long way. The season starts
in early August and lasts until mid
November. The girls swim hard at
practice and swim about thirteen
hours a week, not including meets.
Weve really come a long way
and with the help of the commu-
nity we can go even further, said
Erin Lammers. We have a great
team atmosphere and we have fun

Come make art with students,
faculty and artist, Dave Eppley
In mid-April, many
Kohler students and faculty
will have the opportunity to
work with Dave Eppley, an
award winning exhibition
artist, who will be in resi-
dence at the John Michael
Kohler Arts Center from
April 9 through 19. The op-
portunity to participate is
being extended to parents as
well!
Dave Eppley is an artist
who creates exuberant pieces
of wall sculpture using
brightly colored vinyl sign
tape. His work is on display
immediately after entering
the John Michael Kohler Arts
Center, or at Eppleys web-
site at daveeppley.com.
The opportunity is com-
posed of two parts: At the
John Michael Kohler Arts
Center, students, faculty, and
parents will enjoy a docent
lead tour of The Line Un-
leashed exhibit. Then, each
will have the opportunity to
create his/her own piece of
artworking directly with the
artist, Dave Eppley. The
combined works will be on
display briefly at the
JMKAC and then be brought
to Kohler Schools for display
on-site. It would be wonder-
ful to have parents work in-
cluded, said Kohler Schools
art teacher Stacy Stanley.
Spaces are available for a
limited number of parents on
each of the following
tours/workshops:
April 10 12:30 to 2:45
April 17 9:00 to 11:30
April 18 12:30 to 2:45
There will be a one-day
intensive with Dave Epp-
ley at Kohler Schools on on
April 19. We are hoping to
have a small, mixed group of
community volunteers, staff
members, and students work-
ing together to study the
artists techniques and then
plan, design, and ultimately
create a piece of permanent
art (or several?) within our
building,said Stanley.
Anyone interested in at-
tending either a workshop at
the Arts Center or the one
day intensive, are asked to
respond April 4. Members of
the Kohler Arts committee
will be glad to answer ques-
tions, or reserve a spot for in-
terested parties.

I am running for election to the Kohler School Board to get some common sense in making real decisions.
We have many homes for sale in Kohler because the property taxes are out of sight. Some of the retirees
living here would be out of work like me and would have no pensions if the economy was like this 10-20
years ago.
Foreclosures, no jobs, many food pantries abound. I will try to get the 1.5 million dollars of benefits off
the property taxes. The teachers make more money without these benefits than myself who worked for
12 months out of the year.
I paid for all my benefits off my check. With their big incomes they can, too. This would be fair to the tax-
payer and make more lower income families with kids move into our Village because of lower taxes.
Also, some of the classes only have 10 kids in a class. VERY COSTLY. I will need a lot of support from
you, the taxpayer, at the school board meetings if elected.

March 12, 2012 Ladies..Start
your Engines! Join womenwith-
wheels.com for the Inaugural s
Girls Go Racing: The Art of Driv-
ing Adventure event at Road
America Race Track in Elkhart
Lake, WI. Presented by Women-
withwheels.com, this event for
women will take place May 4-6,
2012. The Driving Adventure will
take place on Saturday, May 5 and
a meet/greet on Friday May 4.
For years women have been
encouraging me to organize a
ladies day at an auto race track.
A spirited day of learning vehicle
dynamics, improving on driving
skills and pushing their limits in a
race car, says Susan Frissell, pub-
lisher and editor of Womenwith-
wheels.com and the gal behind the
wheel of Girls Go Racing: The Art
of Driving Adventure. According
to Frissell, Women With Wheels
has finally turned a dream into re-
ality and coordinated a day of driv-
ing they guarantee will be far too
much fun for all involved.
On a controlled driving course,
participants will receive the funda-
mentals of driving, as well as use-
ful everyday maneuvers. Included
in the full day at the race track are
classroom discussion, in-car les-
sons which will include vehicle
dynamics, and an on-track portion.
Monitored and led by professional
driving coaches, the Girls Go Rac-
ing event will be the perfect intro-
duction into the exciting world of
auto racing.
Once the dust has cleared,
women will reflect back with pride
about what they have accom-
plished. They will notice an in-
crease in their driving skills and
develop a whole new appreciation
for what constitutes the fine art of
driving.
The reasons for joining us at
Girls Go Racing: The Art of Driv-
ing Adventure are as varied as the
cars you drive. Maybe you have
always wondered what it feels like
to experience pulse-pounding ex-
hilaration at top speed. Or perhaps
youre crossing yet another wish
off your bucket list. Some will no
doubt be fueling their passion for
motorsports. Or taking on a dare!
Of course you must join us for
the first annual Girls Go Racing
event at Road America. You wont
want to miss being a part of this
enthusiastic group of gals who be-
lieve in going for it. All women
age 18 and up, with a valid drivers
license are welcome to attend. For
more information, itinerary and
pricing, contact Susan Frissell or

Kohler 5th Graders
Attend Trees for
Tomorrow
By Cecelia Zielke
(5th grade stu-
dent)
Do bears really
hibernate? How
many calories do
bears eat in a day?
What kind of
wolves are in Wis-
consin? These
were just some of
the questions that
Kohler fifth
graders got an-
swered when we
were in Eagle
River, WI attending a program
called Trees for Tomorrow in Feb-
ruary.
The Trees for Tomorrow pro-
gram is dedicated to teaching peo-
ple, especially school groups,
about all of our natural resources
and natural surroundings. It was
started by Mulley Taylor in 1944
to start new forests, and by 1967
about 23 million seedlings had
been planted. At that time, their
focus switched to education.
Since then, TFT has worked to ed-
ucate school groups from Wiscon-
sin, Michigan, and Illinois.
From February 20-22nd, a
group of 14 fifth graders and 2
teachers from Kohler Elementary
School attended TFT. There were
many activities that were both en-
joyable and educational including
papermaking, workshops on
wolves and bears, survival skills
training, and a workshop on skulls,
skins, and bones. The group went
snowshoeing on two different
daysonce in the Eagle River
area and once in Upper Michigan.
On one of the snowshoeing trips,
we got to feed chickadees right out
of our hands. That was a lesson in
patience! For survival skills train-
ing, groups of students learned
what needs to be done to survive
in the wilderness and how to make
campfires with minimal supplies.
It was not an easy task! It was a
great lesson on perseverance and
teamwork!
This years trip was made pos-
sible by a generous donation by
Amanda Brotz. It was an honor to
go on this wonderful trip, and we
want to thank Ms. Brotz! Because
this was such a great experience,
the fifth grade teachers would like
to take a group of students to TFT
next winter, but they are in need of
another sponsor. If you would like
to sponsor classes to go to Trees
for Tomorrow in the future, please
contact Duane Du Mez at 803-
7234 or
dumezd@kohler.k12.wi.us.
Have you figured out the an-
swers to the original questions yet?
Bears really do not hibernate.
They just slow down their body
systems during winter. Bears eat
25,000 calories per day! That is
equal to 38 banana splits! The
gray wolf or timber wolf is the
only wolf in WI.

CLASSIFIEDS
Grace United Church of Christ,
500 School Street, Kohler, under
the pastoral leadership of Rev.
Thomas M. Schroeder will offer
several special services of worship
in Holy Week and invites the pub-
lic to participate fully with the con-
gregation.
On Palm Sunday, April 1, the
people of Grace UCC will cele-
brate Christ's entrance into
Jerusalem as they gather in wor-
ship at 8 and 10: a.m. Rev.
Schroeder will present the procla-
mation of God's word based on the
entrance passage from The Gospel
according to John.
On Maundy Thursday, April 5,
at a 7:30 p.m. The congregation
will worship God in a service of
tenebrae (shadows) which includes
the Sacrament of Holy Commun-
ion. In the service those gathered
will encounter the pain and agony
experienced by Jesus as he moves
in obedience to God's will toward
the cross. As the story progresses
the sanctuary grows dark and wor-
shipers are confronted with the re-
ality of the cost of redemption.
The senior choir, under the direc-
tion of Mrs. Audrey Braatz, will
add to the sensation through a
proclamation in music. The people
of Grace Church invite all who
gather in Christ's name to fully par-
ticipate at the Lord's table. The
public is invited to attend.
The people of Grace Church
will participate in a Good Friday
service at the Pentecostal Church
of Sheboygan County in Sheboy-
gan Falls from noon until 1:00 p.m.
on April 6. This Ecumenical serv-
ice will have clergy from various
churches in the community partic-
ipating. The public is invited to
this service. A "Walk of the Cross"
will begin at 11:30 starting at the
Sheboygan Falls Municipal build-
ing and will wind its way through
the streets of Sheboygan Falls as it
moves to Blessed Trinity. People
who wish to walk are invited to
meet at the Municipal building at
11:25.
On April 8 the Easter morning
begins with a 7:30 a.m. Discovery
Service of light and word and will
feature Rev. Schroeder preaching
about the enfolding events of
Easter as the first disciples encoun-
tered the empty tomb.
The 10:00 Celebration Service
will feature special music by the
senior choir and brass. This serv-
ice of word, song, and The Sacra-
ment of Holy Communion will
praise God for the gift of eternal
life.
There will be no church school
on Easter Sunday, but as always a
children's message will be given at
each service and child care will be
provided during the 10:00 service.
Free Concert at
Grace, May 4
The public is invited to an
evening of music at Grace UCC,
500 School Street, on May 4 start-
ing at 7 pm.
This evening will open with the
Show Choir of Kohler High
School performing several num-
bers followed by various musi-
cians and groups and concluding
with Dan Ognavic playing the new
Rodgers organ. The sanctuary of
the church will resonate with the
sounds of music in a variety of
ways. This will be born out in the
variety of music styles offered in
the concert. Groups and individu-
als from the Sheboygan County
community will grace us with their
renditions of classical and contem-
porary music.
Following the concert there will
be refreshments to delight the
palate.

From Police Chief
Bill Rutten
McGruff House Program: The Kohler
Police had been an active participant in the
nationwide McGruff House Program. The
program was basically a safe haven pro-
gram for the children in the village if they
were in need. The Village had 30+ volun-
teer households that participated annually.
Unfortunately the national program is
being eliminated. The Village is a safe
place to live and raise children. The signs
that were displayed in the neighborhood
windows will be taken down, but the
neighbors that volunteered as participants
will still be looking out for our community
Im sure.

BAND NOTES
Kohler Spring Band
Concert
As the village of Kohler cele-
brates its centennial, the Kohler
bands will also be hosting a spe-
cial anniversary. On Sunday, April
22 the Kohler Band Department in
conjunction with the Wisconsin
Bandmasters Association will
present its final concert of the
school year. The concert, featur-
ing the Sixth Grade Band, Concert
and Symphony Band, will also be
a grand concert featuring eight
guest conductors from the Wiscon-
sin Bandmasters Association. The
concert will begin at 2:00 p.m. in
the Kohler Memorial Theater.
The Wisconsin Bandmasters
Association is an honorary organ-
ization whose members have been
recognized and selected by their
peers as having exemplary school
band programs. The WBA is cel-
ebrating its 75th anniversary.
What is unique about this organi-
zation is that it started in 1937 and
Kohler was the host site for the
first ceremony. Walter Kohler was
the guest of honor and banquet
speaker. Past and present Kohler
band directors Henry Winsauer,
Walter Wright and Richard Ten-
gowski have been honored and se-
lected to the WBA.
Some of the selections to be
performed include Fanfare for a
Celebration, Woodlake March,
Highlights from Music Man, 32
Summer Music

tion is sponsoring partial summer

various summer music camps is in-
cluded on the website.

tion on April 28 will be divided

will be sent directly to the summer
camp. A letter will be sent to you
notifying you of the balance due
upon your arrival at the summer
camp.

You dont want to miss this
final band concert of the school
year. The Kohler Bands are under
the direction of Richard Ten-
gowski. The concert is free and
open to the public.
To insure the best educational cli-
mate for our students, it is necessary
to have an orderly and educationally
sound policy for placement of stu-
dents in elementary classrooms. We
feel this annual process of grouping
should be completed with the follow-
ing goals in mind:
1. Each room should be grouped as
heterogeneously as possible. If pos-
sible, each group should contain an
equal number of boys and girls and
should be balanced in regard to lead-
ership, learning ability, behavior and
special problems.
2. If possible, students should be ro-
tated from year-to-year to insure a
social mixing in each grade.
3. Those students who have been
identified for the Children with Dis-
abilities Program will receive special
consideration based on their needs.
REGARDING ELEMENTARY
CLASSROOM PLACEMENT
Parental input into the process
should only be made when it is felt
that there is strong educational evi-
dence that their child will benefit by
placement with a certain classroom
teacher.
It is very important that rooms in the
elementary grades be organized in
the best groupings possible.
Procedures for requests are as fol-
lows:
1. Parents must submit their request
that their daughter/son be placed in a
specific classroom in writing to the
Elementary Principal by May 1.
(Neither e-mails nor phone calls will
be accepted; only written requests
will be considered.)
2. The Elementary Principal will
consider the parent request and may
review all necessary data (test
records, health records, behavioral
records, teacher progress reports,
etc.) as well as consulting with the
sending and/or receiving teachers.
Parents will be limited to two teacher
requests per childs JK-5th grade ca-
reer.
3. Students whose parents are mak-
ing specific teacher requests for the
first time are given priority.
4. Requests may be denied if grant-
ing the request leads to unbalanced
classes in areas of gifted and tal-
ented, special needs, gender, etc.
Classroom lists cannot be considered
permanently established until the be-
ginning of the new school year.

The first pretzel was created in
620 AD by a monk in southern France
or northern Italy. It was originally
called a 'pretiola' and was renamed
'pretzel' later when it migrated to
Germany and Austria.
In the 17th century, pretzels
were known as a marriage knot.
In 1861, pretzel twisting was the
highest-paying job in the
Philadelphia region. Today,
machines do the twisting.

Procedures for school
closings due to
inclement weather:
We ask parents to discuss this issue with
their children now before the actual emer-
gency occurs. If you are generally not home
during the day, be sure your child knows
where they are to go if school closed early:
will they go home with a classmate; an older
sibling; or a relative? Have you made prior
arrangements with this individual to be on
stand by for these occasions? Please make
your arrangements in advance and make sure
your child is fully aware of what to do in
case school closes early.
Any decision to close school for all or any
portion of a school day will be made as early
as possible in order to afford parents the op-
portunity to make alternate child care trans-
portation plans. All closing announcements
or early dismissals will be made on the
Kohler School web site www.kohlerpublic-

Ongoing fundraisers at Kohler Schools!
It isnt often that someone gives you money for something youre going to throw away, but thats exactly
what these programs do. Each label or cap may seem small, but together they add up to hundreds of dollars
each year, which helps KSF PTO fund many great activities for the children of Kohler Schools.
Elementary students can turn in these items at any time to their classroom collection box. Were having a
collection contest again this year the top 2 classes with the most points at the end of the year will receive
an ice cream party (each box top/label/cap = 1 point).
If you dont have an elementary student but would like to support our school, please give your items to an
elementary student or teacher (theyll be happy to take them off your hands!)
VERY IMPORTANT! Please cut along the dashed line and save the coupon only
as shown below. The companies do not accept the entire label or package.



Box Tops for Education coupons can be found on General Mills cereals, Pillsbury Refrigerated and
Frozen/Dairy, Hamburger Helper, Betty Crocker Snacks and Baking, Ziplock Bags/Containers, Kleenex and
many more products.
Each coupon is worth 10 cents!
Labels for Education coupons can be found on Campbells soup, Swanson Soup, Franco American products,
Prego Sauce, Pepperidge Farms products, and V8 drink lids. Each label earns points for free merchandise.
Tyson Project A+ coupons can be found on Tyson Chicken products. Each label is worth 24 cents!
Kemps Nickels for Schools caps on gallon and half gallon
milk containers. Each cap is worth 5 cents.
Kwik Trip Milk Moola caps on Kwik Trip or Kwik
Star's Natures Touch, and Kwik Quencher
products (worth 5 each) or Glazers Dozen
or Half-Dozen donuts packages (worth 10 each).
Questions? Please contact program coordinator Tina Horth at: horth96@aol.com
The program is simple. Follow-
ing a quick interview, we will
match you with a child who has
been recommended to Big Broth-
ers & Big Sisters through a school
staff member. Once we introduce
you to your Lunch Buddy, you
join that child one day each week
during the school year over their
lunch period. During that hour,
you will eat with him/her, play
games, talk, go to the library
whatever you would like to do.
Whats important is not what you
do, its the time you spend to-
gether.
Something so small can make a
huge difference in a childs life!
If you are interested in becom-
ing a Lunch Buddy, please con-
tact Laura Multer at Kohler
Schools; 803-7203/

Thursday, November 17th the
Kohler High Making a Differ-
ence/Key Club held a used tech-
nology drive alongside a movie
screening for the documentary
Fresh, a documentary meant to
educate about sustainable eating
and agriculture. There were nu-
merous technologies donated to
the effort that will be sent to an
organization to recycle the elec-
tronics in an eco-friendly manner.
The goal of this event was to
raise awareness in our community
and to spread the word about the
efforts that Making

make an impact in our commu-
nity. The Making a Difference/

the U.S. Womens Open was won by
future Hall of Famer Se Ri Pak in a

such a high-profile event with the natu-
ral and scenic beauty of Blackwolf Run
serving as a most appropriate backdrop.

onship will deliver infectious energy,
intense state pride and sweet nostalgia
during this family-focused time of
year.
Concurrent with the U.S. Womens
Open, the Village of Kohler is celebrat-
ing its 100th anniversary and will host
family events to celebrate the commu-
nitys milestone. The championship
golf experience will be enhanced with a
complimentary John Philip Sousa out-
door concert, fireworks and Americana-
themed festivities hosted throughout
the Village and at the Forbes Five-Star
American Club Resort.
The U.S. Womens Open offers fami-
lies the opportunity to experience the

FUN BY THE BARREL. Experience
Kohler Festival of Beer; a well-crafted
celebration of malts, hops and the art of
brewing. Most people raise a glass to
celebrate their appreciation of beer. We
raise a tent and give the art of brewing
its very own three-day festival. The Vil-
lage of Kohler will come alive as the
country's top craft brewers converge in
a celebration of suds at the 4th Annual
Kohler Festival of Beer on June 1-3.
Featured Event: The Kohler Festival of
Beer weekend officially kicks off with
a ceremonial tapping of the kegs. Join
us for a Tapping Party featuring unre-
leased and limited Wisconsin and
American beers, live entertainment and
great food in the Main Festival Tent.
Friday, June 1 from 4-6pm. $30 per
person.
