Luxemburg-Casco School District to open new Gym, Wrestling Room

posted Jan 7, 2020, 10:48 AM by Cory Romdenne

January 26 event will offer community chance to see the new facilities made possible by residents
LUXEMBURG, Wis. – The Luxemburg-Casco School District will hold a community celebration to officially open its new Gymnasium and Wrestling Room. The event will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, January 26, in the new Gym, located at the north end of the high school.

Dedication Ceremony informational poster
“We are excited to share our new athletic facilities with the Luxemburg-Casco community which has made them possible,” says District Superintendent Glenn Schlender. “People have watched with great interest over the last eight months as the new Gym and Wrestling Room rose from the ground. This is a great opportunity for everyone to see all aspects of the new facilities that will serve L-C for decades to come before regular use begins in the days to follow.”

Doors for the event will open at 2:30 p.m., with attendees entering through the main entrance of the new Gymnasium on the west side of the building.

Members of the Luxemburg-Casco High School boys’ and girls’ varsity basketball teams will hold a shoot-around on the new Gym floor. The L-C band, choir and dance team also will perform.

In the new Wrestling Room, a youth wrestling clinic will be led by University of Wisconsin-Madison Head Wrestling Coach Chris Bono and Associate Head Coach Jon Reader. Members of the L-C varsity wrestling team will assist with the clinic.

Following a short program and ribbon-cutting ceremony, community members will have the opportunity to take self-guided tours of the new facilities. These include the new Gymnasium and Wrestling Room, new team locker rooms and other public areas. Luxemburg-Casco student-athletes, including members of the state champion girls’ volleyball team, will be stationed throughout to provide information on each new area.

The new three-station Gymnasium, which is twice the size of the district’s existing facility, will allow multiple teams to practice simultaneously. It also features expanded bleacher seating, increasing capacity for graduation and athletic events.

Refreshments will be provided at the event through the facility’s upgraded concessions area.

“We wouldn’t be here today without those in the community who started this process years ago by engaging with us to help define needs,” Schlender says. “It also is important to recognize others who have played an important role in bringing this component of the referendum project to completion. We thank our project manager, Nexus Solutions, particularly Jeff Mangan and Mike Frailing, for their strong management. We also thank general contractors SMA Construction Services and M.R. Neubert Construction, along with the many sub-contractors who have been part of the project.

“We equally appreciate the patience of our students, teachers and staff, who operate around the project work on a daily basis.”

Speakers at the event will include Schlender, Luxemburg-Casco Board of Education President Mike Driedric and Mangan.

The Luxemburg-Casco School District undertook a long-range facilities plan in the spring of 2015. Following engagement with the local community, two referendum questions were put before voters in April 2018; both passed.

Ground was broken in May 2019 on the new Gymnasium and Wrestling Room, which represents a major portion of the $27.8-million referendum projects. A new Middle School, relocated to Luxemburg from Casco, is the other significant aspect of the projects; construction continues on that building, which is expected to be ready for use in the 2020-21 academic year.

In the event of inclement weather conditions on January 26, a backup date for the event – Wednesday, January 29, at 6 p.m. – has been established.

INDIANAPOLIS – The National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) has announced that Jenny Bandow, Athletic Director and Dean of Students at Luxemburg-Casco High School, has been recognized by the organization as a Certified Athletic Administrator (CAA).

To earn the CAA distinction, Bandow demonstrated to the NIAAA the highest level of knowledge and expertise in the field of interscholastic athletic administration. The voluntary certification process included a thorough evaluation of her educational background, experience and professional contributions, as well as a rigorous, comprehensive written examination.

“This is a well-deserved recognition for Jenny,” says Glenn Schlender, superintendent of the Luxemburg-Casco School District. “Attainment of this professional certification puts her into an elite group of interscholastic athletic administrators across the country while also signifying completion of a comprehensive plan for self-improvement which enhances her ability to serve the district, community and profession. It fits right in with the district’s ongoing commitment to staff training and improvement.”NIAA logo


Bandow has been with the Luxemburg-Casco School District since 2000, serving as athletic director since 2006 and as dean of students since May 2015. She was the founding head coach of the boys and girls varsity soccer teams, coaching the boys through 2008 and the girls through 2011. Bandow, then Jenny Lushine, was a standout soccer player herself at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point from 1995-98.

The NIAAA is a national professional organization consisting of all 50 state athletic administrator associations and more than 12,000 individual members. It is dedicated to promoting the professional growth of high school athletic administrators and preserving the educational nature of interscholastic athletics and the place of these programs in the secondary school curriculum.

Luxemburg-Casco Schools rank as one of top districts in Wisconsin

posted Nov 12, 2019, 7:13 AM by Cory Romdenne   [ updated Jan 13, 2020, 5:40 AM by Scott Waldow ]

District scores in top third of state; Intermediate School performs particularly well
Wisconsin DPI Logo

LUXEMBURG, Wis. – The Luxemburg-Casco School District again has demonstrated itself as one of the highest-performing districts in Northeast Wisconsin and across the entire state, based on the annual District Report Cards from 2018-19 released today by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI).

Luxemburg-Casco ranked in the top third among school districts in the state of Wisconsin, finishing 130th of 421 districts. Among the 38 school districts within Cooperative Educational Service Agency (CESA) 7 of Northeast Wisconsin, L-C was No. 13.

L-C students had an overall accountability rating of 77.4, putting them within the Exceeds Expectations category (73.0-82.9). Of 421 Public School Districts in the state, just over half (56.5%) fell into the Exceeds Expectations category or above.

Student achievement in the Luxemburg-Casco district was 81.4, more than 19 points higher than the state average of 62.3.

Wisconsin DPI Report Card L-C District score 18-19
“As a small, rural district, we are very proud of the levels of learning demonstrated by our students,” says Glenn Schlender, Luxemburg-Casco Schools superintendent. “The district’s scores show a much higher performance in the numbers of students who are proficient and advanced learners, both at the state level and within our region.

“Our teaching staff has a good understanding of what students need to learn, and they ensure that happens. Teachers utilize their extra time during the school day to reteach specific areas of concern to ensure that the learning occurs.”

L-C students showed strong proficiency in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. L-C had 87.7 percent of its students score at the Basic level or above in ELA, compared to the statewide average of 74.8. It also scored 5.0 points higher, 13.0, in the percentage of Advanced ELA students than the Wisconsin average (8.0).

The differences between L-C and the state averages were even more dramatic within Mathematics. Nearly 90 percent of L-C students (88.8) scored at the Basic level or above – 17.1 points higher than the Wisconsin average of 71.7. L-C had an impressive 21.1% of Math students scoring at the Advanced level, well above the state average of 9.4% by nearly 12 points (11.7).

Luxemburg-Casco students with disabilities scored on par with fellow students without a disability in both ELA and Math. In Math, the Value-Added Score provided by DPI was slightly higher for Students with Disabilities (3.4) than for Students without Disabilities (3.3). In English Language Arts, Students with Disabilities (3.1) posted an almost identical score as Students without Disabilities (3.2).

Among the 38 school districts within CESA 7 of Northeast Wisconsin, the Luxemburg-Casco School District posted high ranks in ELA and Math for its percentage of students who were either Proficient or Advanced. In ELA, L-C finished fourth within CESA 7 with 60.1 percent of students who were Proficient or Advanced, nearly 20 points higher than the state average of 40.9. In Math, L-C ranked third in CESA 7, with 69.9 percent of students either Proficient or Advanced, more than 26 points higher than the Wisconsin average of 43.4.

For 2018-19, 2,112 public schools and 322 private choice schools received report card ratings. Report card ratings range from five stars, denoting schools and districts that significantly exceed expectations, to one star for those that fail to meet expectations.

Accountability Report Cards annually report on the performance of all public schools and districts in Wisconsin. They include outcomes in four priority areas:
  1. Student Achievement, which measures students’ level of knowledge and skills attained compared against state academic standards in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics
  2. Growth, which measures how rapidly students are gaining knowledge and skills from year to year, focusing on the pace of improvement in students’ performance
  3. Closing Gaps, which shows how much the school or district is closing statewide achievements gaps between student groups
  4. On-Track to Graduation and Postsecondary Readiness, which indicates how successfully students are achieving educational milestones that predict later success

The highest-performing school within the Luxemburg-Casco School District was the Intermediate School, which had an overall score of 89.1 to put it in DPI’s Significantly Exceeds Expectations category (83-100). Only 318 schools in the state posted this level of achievement.

The Intermediate School posted particularly strong numbers in Mathematics, scoring 48.9 of 50 in Achievement and 50.0 of 50 in Growth. More than one of three Intermediate School students (36.7%) were Advanced in Math, 27.3% more than the state average of 9.4%. Additionally, its value-added Growth score was 5.1, with 6 being the highest.

Only 4.3% of L-C Intermediate students failed to score at the Basic or above level in Math, compared to 28.2% statewide. Similar proficiency was shown in ELA at the Intermediate School, with just 8.4% of students performing below the Basic level, compared to 25.3% across Wisconsin.

“The performance of our students at the Intermediate School is a real credit to its principal, Jolene Hussong, and her team,” adds Schlender. “We are excited to see the academic performance of these students when they reach the higher grade levels.”

Among the other Luxemburg-Casco schools, the High School had an overall score of 71.8 (Meets Expectations), the Middle School posted an overall score of 73.7 (Exceeds Expectations) and the Primary School received a Satisfactory Progress rating (overall scores are not given due to a lack of testing in earlier grades).

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) releases Accountability Report Cards each fall, utilizing data from the past year. More information on the District and School Report Cards at https://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards.

“This is very exciting news for our high school,” says Principal Troy Haws. “To receive recognition on this scale is pretty significant for our entire district. It establishes Luxemburg-Casco as one of the technical education leaders in Northeast Wisconsin.”

Luxemburg-Casco High School has placed a strong emphasis on technical education over the past two years, including increased hands-on coursework. Contained within L-C’s technical programming are nearly 50 partnerships with area businesses, most prominently D&S Machine Service of Luxemburg and Olson Fabrication of Algoma.

NEWMA Award
The NEW Manufacturing Alliance presents the awards each year to recognize exemplary methods throughout the region, saying, “The Alliance believes it is critically important for manufacturers to work with and support education. The Awards spotlight best practices throughout the New North region.”

NEWMA holds its annual Manufacturing First Expo & Conference the following day, attended by more than 1,500 people, including 500 high school students. The event is the culmination of Manufacturing Month (October) in the state of Wisconsin.

You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Learn how to help a friend, family member, co-worker or neighbor in need. Get trained in Mental Health First Aid at one of these upcoming free sessions in our community.

2019 Flu Vaccine Clinic

posted Oct 2, 2019, 8:42 AM by Cory Romdenne   [ updated Oct 9, 2019, 9:24 AM ]

Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory virus that affects our communities each year. Flu season runs from October through May. This virus can live on hard surfaces and can be spread easily through coughing and sneezing. Symptoms of influenza include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, and tiredness. In certain circumstances influenza can become life threatening.

To protect the children within our community, the Kewaunee County Health Department will hold an influenza immunization clinic at your child’s school on: Tuesday, October 29, 2019. Injectable vaccine will be available free of charge while supplies last. Please note that Flumist (the nasal vaccine) will not be available through the health department this year.

If you have a student within the district and you want your child to receive the vaccine at school during the course of the school day, please:
  • Read the enclosed Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) carefully. The VIS explains why people should get this vaccine, who should delay getting it and who should not get it at all.
  • Sign and return the enclosed consent form to your child’s school by: Monday, October 28, 2019.

For parents who wish to be present while their child is vaccinated, an after-school clinic will be held in the Intermediate School from 3:15 to 4:30. Parents may bring any child (including siblings who are not yet school age) to receive a free flu vaccine at this time. Adult Influenza shots will also be available after school at the cost of $30. Vaccine Information Sheets and consent forms will be available at the school. You may fill one out in advance; but then please bring it with you to the after-school clinic.
 
If you have any questions about this school immunization clinic, please call the health department at 920-388-7160.
