Woodworth Rocket Club Visits SSM Health

Woodworth eighth grade Rocket Club members are joining forces with Dr. Clements and the staff from the SSM Health’s (formerly Agnesian HealthCare) cardiac cath lab at St. Agnes Hospital. The cardiac cath lab staff demonstrated how pressure in the heart is measured in the lab. The students will be simulating this type of pressure in their rocket at launch time.  They are looking to measure the pressure from the rocket launch (G-force) on the heart, much like what astronauts and fighter pilots experience during flight. Pictured here (L-R) are: Matthew Sesing, Ben Schmitt, Dakota Nelson, Peter Szromba, Tyler Vang, Shawn Ferguson, Dr. Clements, Sarah Ludwig, Woodworth science instructor, Meghan Schmitt, Jen Schmitz, and Kerry Bruins

Middle School students experiencing numerous health benefits from the PEP Grant

Stationary bikes, ellipticals, human-powered treadmills, TRX suspension training, balance and flexibility equipment, and a wide assortment of strength and functional exercising options - sounds like a fitness center, right?  Actually it’s fitness equipment that students at Sabish, Theisen, and Woodworth Middle Schools now have access to right in their schools, thanks to the Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP) grant that was awarded to the Fond du Lac School District in 2016.  

In addition to utilizing the fitness equipment during their PE classes, students have access before, during, and after school through various opportunities such as intramurals, brain break opportunities, and a more structured strength and conditioning program. Steven Knuth, strength and conditioning coach and owner of TNT, met with middle school staff to instruct them in the proper functional fitness techniques in order to ensure safe and appropriate use of the new equipment.

A primary source of the monies for the equipment purchase was funding from the PEP grant. Additionally, the Cardinal Alumni Association contributed over $23,000.00 toward the strengthening equipment.

Another component being explored by the middle school students goes beyond the physical benefits of physical fitness.  Dr. Heather Schmidt, Agnesian/SSM Health, has presented to mostly all middle school students strong evidence regarding the overwhelming connection between exercise and the brain and how it improves attention, learning, and mood. Dr. Schmidt will complete the presentations to the final groups on May 17.

My Stop App Helps Parents Track Buses

Fond du Lac School District parents can now use the free My Stop app to determine the location of their child's school bus. The My Stop app displays the school bus's location on a map, as well as provides the estimated time of arrival to a specific student's bus stop. The location of the bus is automatically updated every few seconds to accommodate any delays.

Approximately 1300 students ride the bus each day to and from Fond du Lac public and parochial schools, according to Marian Sheridan, Fond du Lac School District’s Coordinator of School Health and Safety Programs and Attendance and Transportation. GPS technology was installed in every school bus last summer.  This year, new computer software was added that links the GPS data with the school bus route database. 
 
"We know that parents want to have access to transportation information so they don't have to call to find out if buses are running late," Sheridan said. "The  primary intent of the app is for parents to have this transportation information at their fingertips."
