Child Development Days Scheduled for February 5 and 6, 2018

Children who will turn 3 or 4 years old on or before September 1, 2018, are invited to participate in this free preschool developmental screening sponsored by the Fond du Lac School District, Fond du Lac Birth to Three, ADVOCAP Head Start, and Agnesian Health Care. Your child will be encouraged to participate in a play group where social, communication, motor, and early learning skills will be observed. Hearing and vision will be screened as well. Child Development Days will provide you with the opportunity to receive information on growth and development of children ages 2 through 4, and on the services available in the community for children of this age.

This event will be held on Monday, February 5 from 10 AM - 6 PM and Tuesday, February 6 from 8 AM – 12 PM and 3 - 6 PM at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 855 Martin Avenue, Fond du Lac. Please call the Child Development Day Registration Line at the Fond du Lac School District, 906-6525, and talk to Tammy Hidde to schedule an appointment for your child. Screenings take approximately one hour. 

Registration for ADVOCAP Head Start or Head Start 4-Year Old Kindergarten ONLY for 2018-2019 will be available for those families who are interested. If you intend to register your child for these programs, please be sure to bring along your child’s birth certificate. 

If your child will not turn 3 years old by September 1, 2018, and you have any concerns or questions about his/her development, please call the Fond du Lac Birth to Three Program at 929-3919.

Lakeshore Students Focus on Kindness

Lakeshore Elementary School students are focusing on the theme of kindness this holiday season. In one of their first acts of kindness, these fourth and fifth grade students created wreaths, holiday thank you cards, and paper ornaments to decorate the Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Department and to show their appreciation for all these officers do for our community!

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."

Building Careers for the Future - Career Construction Academy Update

Earlier in the year, the Fond du Lac School District, along with a committee of numerous general contractors and local organizations, announced plans to build a 5,750 square-foot facility that would be uniquely designed to house hands-on training areas for all the trades. Currently, fundraising for this proposed $1,104,318 Career Construction Academy (CCA) is ongoing with 74% of the project costs secured through pledges and equipment donations.

The CCA Committee is focused on raising the remaining balance of the project cost so that construction can begin. Those interested in learning more about this proposed facility can email Bob Roehrig at County Materials Corporation, bob.roehrig@countymaterials.com or call 262-506-4577 or Pat Smith at C.D. Smith Construction, psmith@cdsmith.com
