Fondy High English Teacher Named 2018 Distinguished Adviser

Matthew Smith, an English teacher at Fond du Lac High School, has been named a 2018 Distinguished Adviser by the National High School Journalism Teacher of the Year program, administered by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and cosponsored by the Dow Jones News Fund as well as the Poynter Institute and The Wall Street Journal.

Participate in Winter Walk at Some of Our Schools
Winter Walk to School Day, similar to the Walk to School Day in the fall, hopes to address the growing concern with lack of physical activity for our children as well as to increase awareness in protecting our environment. Unlike the Walk to School day in October where it is a specific day, schools are free to select a date in February that works best for their school calendar of activities. The Winter Walk hopes to address the fact that over the last 30 years, the percentage of children walking to school has declined.

The Fond du Lac School District encourages students and parents to review the list below and take the opportunity to participate in Winter Walk to School Day. Schools will also be awarding incentive prizes and/or conducting raffle drawings for students who choose to participate with prizes made available through East Central Safe Routes to School.

Chegwin Elementary School staff will plan to meet students on Friday, February 23 (changed from February 2) at two locations at 7:50 a.m.: McKinley Park and the sidewalk by the parking lot of U.S. Bank where students will be joined by employees from U.S. Bank, Chegwin’s Partners in Education. Participating students will have their names entered into a drawing for prizes.

Evans Elementary School students and staff are gathering at Taylor Park and walking to Evans School on February 23 at 7:45 a.m. Students who walk to school will have a chance to win one of the many prizes through a drawing later in the morning.

Career Construction Academy Students Tour NW Mutual Building in Milwaukee
Imagine stepping onto an aluminum scaffold plank at the 26th floor of a high-rise building and surveying the construction site from that vantage point. Or what about riding in a skip hoist elevator to the 35th story, 550 feet high, straight to the building’s penthouse and taking in the beautiful view of a large city from that height. 

Fond du Lac High School’s Career Construction Academy (CCA) students were given these unique “bird’s eye view” experiences through the program’s partnership with C.D. Smith. As one of the major contractors at the Northwestern Mutual building in Milwaukee, Pat Smith, C.D. Smith Safety Director, treated students to a field trip on the other side of the chain-link fence to see the behind-the-scenes activities that occur when a 1.1 million-square-foot building is under construction.

Student Kolten Sabel shared, “I gained a lot of respect for the guys brave enough to work in the frigid temperatures on the top floors. The amount of time spent planning these jobs out so they run smoothly must require a ton of work and dedication in the office.”  Jordan Payne was equally impressed, “It was a really cool experience with so many cool things I didn’t even know existed. (One) of the highlights that I enjoyed most (was) the tower crane that stood taller than the building itself.”

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."
