Summer School Walking Path Closed

posted Jun 5, 2019, 11:44 AM by Cory Romdenne

Summer School students who need to transfer between buildings:

We were informed today that the sidewalk behind the Primary and Intermediate will be closed due to the construction projects. No students will be able to walk between these two buildings. Therefore, the district has arranged for a shuttle bus to transfer students between buildings for Summer School. All students must ride the shuttle to transfer between the Primary and Intermediate.

Students should be dropped off at the building where their first class is held. The shuttle bus will first pick up at the Intermediate at 9:55AM and drop off students at the Primary who need to attend class there. It will pick up students at the Primary at 10:00AM and bring them to the Intermediate School so students can attend their second class at the Intermediate or High School. Staff has been informed of this change and will allow time for transfers.

All students should be picked up at the building where their final class ends. If you have students to pick up at both buildings, please pick up at the Primary first and then the Intermediate.

Thank you for your patience as we move forward in our referendum plans.

Any questions, please email summer2019@luxcasco.k12.wi.us.

L-C is a top-performing high school in 2019 U.S. News & World Report rankings

LUXEMBURG, Wis. – Luxemburg-Casco High School turned in a strong performance in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools Rankings. L-C finished in the top 20 percent of schools nationally and in the state of Wisconsin.

U.S. News & World Report evaluated 17,245 high schools across the country in 2019, and Luxemburg-Casco ranked 3,311. 

Among the 517 high schools in Wisconsin, L-C similarly landed within the top 20 percent, ranking 105th. 

Luxemburg-Casco High School also excelled within its local area, ranking 10th in CESA 7. CESA 7 is the Cooperative Educational Service Agency for Northeast Wisconsin, representing 38 school districts.

“As a small, rural district, we take great pride in the strength of our academic curriculum and student performance,” says Luxemburg-Casco School District Superintendent Glenn Schlender. “The U.S. News rankings affirm our belief that L-C High School is a top performer locally and beyond.

“We try to be responsive to every child, offering advanced placement and college preparatory coursework, along with the ability to gain skills that will translate into the work world.”

Luxemburg-Casco additionally was in the top 15 percent (rank of 2,568) in the College Readiness Index and in the top 9 percent (rank of 1,547) in the College Curriculum Breadth Index of U.S. News & World Report. L-C turned in a graduation rate of 96 percent in the 2019 rankings.

Carli Kollross named as this year’s valedictorian, Alexa Geniesse as salutatorian

LUXEMBURG, Wis. – The 2019 class of Luxemburg-Casco High School, comprised of 143 students, will receive their diplomas May 29 at 6:30 p.m. during a commencement ceremony in the school’s gymnasium.

Carli Kollross, daughter of Scott and Cami Kollross of Luxemburg, is the valedictorian of the Class of 2019. Alexa Geniesse, daughter of Bob and Lori Geniesse of New Franken, is the salutatorian. Geniesse will provide the ceremony’s Welcome message, while Kollross will offer the Farewell address.

Amanda Miceli, 2019 L-C Class President, will deliver a Class Review speech. The motto of the 2019 class is, “Aspire to inspire before we expire,” a published quote from author Eugene Bell, Jr.

Following an address by District Administrator Glenn Schlender and presentation of the Class of 2019 by Principal Troy Haws, the L-C Board of Education will award diplomas to this year’s graduates.

“There always is sadness in seeing our graduates leave, many of whom have been with us for the entirety of their academic careers,” says Haws, “but also excitement in what is ahead for them. Thanks to the outstanding work of our teachers and staff, we know they are prepared for success in their respective paths. Good luck to everyone in the years ahead, and know that they always will be Spartans!”

Forty-six percent (66 students) of this year’s graduating class plan to continue their education at a four-year post-secondary institution. Fifty-seven of those students will remain in the state for their college experience, including 45 at University of Wisconsin System universities. UW-Green Bay is the top choice among 2019 L-C graduates with 17 choosing the school.

Thirty-four percent (48 students) of the L-C Class of 2019 will be furthering their education at a state technical college. The majority of those students – 44 – have chosen to attend Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.

Ten 2019 students plan to enter the workforce upon graduation, while two have elected military service.

At the graduation ceremony, 16 Honor Students will be recognized for representing the Top 10% of their graduating class. They are:
Carli Kollross
Alexa Geniesse
Colton Koss
Allison Dart
Garrit Aissen
Megan Sternard
Kennsington DeGroot
Selina Conard
Laura Ledvina
Shannon Bukouricz
Brynn Holzwarth
Mackenzie Junio
Bryce Oysti
Madelyn Devoss
Alexis Paye
Esther Frontuto

Another honor to be bestowed at this year’s graduation is the Distinguished Alumni Award, given to 1956 Casco High graduate Al Breitlow.

Major scholarships received by the L-C Class of 2019 include the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Initiative Scholarship to Arabella Adams, the Academic Excellence Scholarship to Carli Kollross and Alex Geniesse, the Technical Excellence Scholarship to Dalton Kudick and Logan Theys, and an athletic scholarship to Cassie Schiltz to play Division I women’s basketball at UW-Green Bay.

Immel Construction of Green Bay, in a first-time award, is providing a full apprenticeship to 2019 graduate Jason Stahl.

The graduation ceremony also will feature music performed by the high school’s Concert Band and Chamber Choir.

Breitlow chosen as recipient of 2019 L-C Distinguished Alumni Award

posted May 22, 2019, 10:33 AM by Cory Romdenne   [ updated May 22, 2019, 10:34 AM ]

A 1956 Casco High graduate, he spent 49 years as an educator, mostly in Northeast Wis.

Al Breitlow portraitLUXEMBURG, Wis. – Al Breitlow, a 1956 graduate of Casco High School who went on to spend nearly a half-century as an educator, primarily in Northeast Wisconsin, is the recipient of the 2019 Luxemburg-Casco School District Distinguished Alumni Award.

Each year, the Luxemburg-Casco School District recognizes a past graduate at its graduation ceremony, with the award winner speaking briefly. Among the criterion utilized in selecting the Distinguished Alumni Award are achievement in high school or beyond, community service and the ability to serve as an inspiration to L-C students. The 2019 commencement will be held May 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the high school gymnasium.

“Al Breitlow is a shining example of what we hope our graduates will become,” says Luxemburg-Casco School District Superintendent Glenn Schlender. “After an exemplary academic and athletic career at Casco High, he went on to impact the community through almost 50 years in education. In retirement, he continues to do so as a sports official and through the telling of the story of the Green Bay Packers. We are proud to salute him with the Distinguished Alumni Award.”

Breitlow played four sports (football, basketball, track and baseball) at Casco (Wis.) High School. He also was a class officer and Homecoming King, along with president of Future Farmers of America.

“I am proud to say that I am a graduate of Casco High,” says Breitlow. “The only thing better would have been that I could say I was a graduate of Luxemburg-Casco High! The communities of Casco and Luxemburg should be commended for the support they give to the students and the programs they offer.”

After his high school graduation Breitlow studied agriculture at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, receiving his bachelor’s degree in 1960. He later earned a master’s degree in biology from St. Mary’s College in Winona, Minn. (1967), plus certifications in special education from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh (1968) and educational administration from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (1976).

Breitlow began a 49-year career in education at Lone Rock (Wis.) High School in 1960. He spent three years at the school, teaching biology and social studies, along with serving as head coach of the football, basketball and baseball teams. He moved to Southern Door High School in 1963, where he taught biology, advanced biology and coached sports for 13 years.

Beginning in 1975, Breitlow oversaw the Door County Handicapped Program, introducing Special Education into Southern Door High School. After getting the program off the ground, he moved into the Green Bay School District, serving as associate principal at Edison and Lombardi middle schools for the ensuing 24 years (1977-2000).

Breitlow concluded his career in education as the athletic director for all of the middle schools in the Green Bay School District from 2000-08.

He credits many individuals for having been instrumental in assisting him in earning the L-C Distinguished Alumni Award: his parents, his family, his wife and children, his teachers (specifically Mr. Majeski, Mr. Jilot, Mr. Sheffy and Mr. Giebel), and his college football coaches (John Barth and Butch Leitl).

Breitlow remains an active – and recognizable – member of the Northeast Wisconsin community. Breitlow has officiated football and basketball games at the high school and college levels. He also serves as a sideline official for practices of the Green Bay Packers.

His association with the Packers goes beyond the field. Breitlow has been a Lambeau Field tour guide for the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and also has given speeches about the Packers organization to area senior citizens and retired teachers.

In his free time, Breitlow enjoys reading sports autobiographies, fishing and spending time with family in Destin, Fla.

Breitlow and his wife, Karen, have two adult daughters, Laine Vigue (Paul) and Kyle Christopherson (Tyler), along with three grandchildren: Brady Vigue (13), Crosby Christopherson (11) and Harper Christopherson (9).

$10,000 award received by “twenty-first century Renaissance figure” at recognition luncheon

Arabella Adams receiving award
LUXEMBURG, Wis. – Arabella Adams, a senior at Luxemburg-Casco High School, has been presented with a $10,000 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2019 Initiative Scholarship at a recognition luncheon hosted by Herb Kohl, Wisconsin philanthropist and businessman.

The Herb Kohl Initiative Scholarship recognizes state “students who have demonstrated a high level of motivation, have shown strong promise for achieving success in college and beyond, and have overcome significant personal obstacles or adversity.”

In summing up Arabella, Luxemburg-Casco school officials described her as “a twenty-first century Renaissance figure, equally adept in and intrigued by the arts and sciences.” She also was saluted as an advocate for the arts, particularly music, and a student possessing considerable musical talent. Arabella is said to have the ability to pick up practically any instrument and not only play it, but play it skillfully.

Arabella plans to study mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. She is the daughter of Daniel and Heather Adams of Luxemburg.

In December 2018, Arabella and another student joined with a high-school English teacher to play Christmas carols for students and staff outside the main office on the day before Christmas break. Further demonstrating her passion for music, she wrote a major research paper for her English 12 class that addressed the impact of music education and advocated for expanding access to it for students throughout their academic careers.

The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has recognized educational excellence for the past 30 years by awarding scholarships annually to 200 graduating high school students throughout Wisconsin. Since its establishment in 1990, the foundation has given $17.8 million to state students, teachers, principals and schools.
