Fond du Lac High School’s Jazz Ensemble I will be featured at this year’s Fox Jazz Fest from September 1 -2. The group was one of three high schools invited to perform on the main stage over Labor Day weekend. "These kids work really hard, and I think it is a tribute to their reputation that Fox Jazz Fest invited us to be a part of this," stated Matt McVeigh, FDL High School band director.

The ensembles' performance will include originals by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Benny Carter.  "We have a pretty high expectation of performance, so this festival really is a preview to where we are headed this school year," McVeigh added. In addition to the high school performance alumni Abe Stoffel-Murray and Ben Stoffel-Murray will both be featured as a part of the Fox Valley Jazz Improvisation Competition.

The Fox Jazz Fest in its 24th year at Jefferson Park in Menasha.  The Fond du Lac High School Jazz I ensemble performs at noon on Sunday, September 2.  Admission is free.

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.

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.
