Fondy High presents "A Christmas Carol" - Nov. 1 - 4

Fond du Lac High School will be presenting the musical, A Christmas Carol, from November 1-3 at 7:00 p.m. and November 4 at 1:00 p.m. A special dinner option will be available on Saturday, November 3 beginning at 5:00 p.m.

Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island), breathe fantastic new life into the classic tale of A Christmas Carol.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

Fond du Lac High School's production will combine over 100 high school students singing and acting on stage, running lights and sound, playing in the pit orchestra and working backstage. Directors for A Christmas Carol are Steve Wilson and Cory Schneider, choreographers are Ann Kelly and Gina Paveglio from Wempner’s School of Dance, and costuming by Liz Shipe.

Drug Free Communities - Hidden in Plain Sight - October 18
Hidden in Plain Sight: What Every Adult Should Know is a life size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The exhibit identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. The presentation is for adults only (21 years of age and older). 

The goal of the presentation at Theisen Middle School auditorium, 525 E. Pioneer Road, on October 18 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. is to educate adults who are influential in the lives of youth, so they know what seemingly innocent items, can actually be an indication of substance abuse. In addition to learning about the various hiding spots and items that may indicate use, audience members will learn signs and symptoms associated with drug and abuse, as well as prevention strategies, and steps in helping children, students, patients, clients, families, friends or coworkers receive the necessary help. There will also be an opportunity for participants to ask questions and get a closer look at the items located in the bedroom.

Fond du Lac School District’s PEP Grant Provides New Heart Rate Monitoring Tool

Students in sixth through twelfth grade in Fond du Lac School District’s physical education (PE) classes learned this year that POLAR A360s aren’t a new kind of snowmobile, but a useful tool that helped them assess their exercise regimen. These devices, some of the latest tools in heart rate technology, help individuals gain specific real-time feedback regarding their exertion levels. The POLAR 360s, purchased with the 2016 Carol M. White PEP Grant funds for Fond du Lac’s Mindfully Active Community (MAC), allowed students to actually see if the effort that they were putting into their workouts were moving them towards a healthier exercise routine and, subsequently, a healthier lifestyle.

Brian Holzman, Theisen Middle School’s PE teacher, feels that the heart rate monitors promoted cardiorespiratory fitness by letting students exercise in their own target heart rate range. “I think one of the most useful features that the heart rate monitors have to offer is giving us concrete evidence of a student’s participation level and their overall effort. Sometimes it may appear that a student is not putting forth as much effort as the other students in the class, but their heart rate will tell us just the opposite.”

 

Sabish students increase their fitness in the new fitness center and with heart rate technology.

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."
