To assist parents in vaccinating their children, the Kewaunee County Public Health Department will hold an immunization clinic at Luxemburg-Casco on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. We will offer Menactra, a meningococcal vaccine. This vaccine is not required by school law, but is recommended for all children over the age of 10. Children should receive one dose prior to age 16 and one dose after age 16. It helps prevent meningitis (serogroups A, C, W and Y). We will also have Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and acellular Pertussis) on hand for any child who may still need this WI School Law required vaccine.
If you want your child to receive either vaccination at school, please read the Vaccine Information Statements (VIS) carefully and sign and return the Authorization to Receive form to your child's school by Friday, April 7, 2017. The VIS sheets explain why people should get these vaccines, who should delay getting them, and who should not get them at all.
If you have any questions about this school immunization clinic, or other vaccinations, please contact Cindy at 920-388-7160.

As the show begins, J. Pierrepont Finch (Eric Maccoux), a young window washer, is poring over a how-to book for transforming himself into a tycoon. He soon bluffs his way into a job in the mail room at World Wide Wicket Company, where he catches the eye of secretary Rosemary Pilkington (Grace Balza). With a mixture of innocence and smarts, our hero continues to climb the ladder of success, impressing boss J.B. Biggley (Noah Doperalski) while overcoming opposition from Biggley’s lazy nephew, Bud Frump (Ethan Nimmer). Meanwhile, Biggley is trying to keep his sexy mistress, Hedy La Rue (Hayley Hilbert), happy, and Rosemary is dreaming of an idyllic suburban life with her future husband “Ponty” Finch. Will everyone at World Wide Wicket get their version of a happy ending? You have to come and see! The show features a cast of 40 with a semi-professional pit orchestra, Choreographed by Tanya Robinson, Assistant Direction by Peter Geissler and Directed/Conducted by Paul Gregg.
Representatives from Guitars for Vets will receive 15 guitar kits from Luxemburg-Casco Intermediate School students during a full-school assembly from 8:10-8:40 a.m. on Wednesday, January 25. Approximately 550 students in Grades 3-6 are expected to be on hand.
Guitars for Vets (www.guitars4vets.org/) helps war veterans afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through the healing power of acoustic guitars. Veterans are provided with guitars and opportunities to learn how to play them. The organization has 60 chapters in more than 30 U.S. states, including five in Wisconsin and one based in Green Bay.
Students from L-C Intermediate School raised more than $1,500 in a five-day bucket battle during the initial week of November 2016. School principal Jolene Hussong subsequently secured an additional $850 in donations from the local Coast Guard Auxiliary and Celebrate De Pere. With the generosity of Instrumental Music Company, the school was able to purchase twice as many guitar kits as originally planned.
“We are excited for students to hear and see how their efforts will positively impact our local war veterans,” says Mary Schley, a music teacher at the school who coordinated the campaign. “It’s been rewarding to see how students have gotten behind this wonderful initiative.”
Luxemburg-Casco Placed on the College Board’s 7th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Student Access and Success
433 School Districts Across the U.S. and Canada Are Honored
Luxemburg-Casco is one of 433 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 7th Annual AP® District Honor Roll. To be included on the 7th Annual Honor Roll, L-C had to, since 2014, increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.
National data from 2016 show that among black/African American, Hispanic, and Native American students with a high degree of readiness for AP, only about half are participating. The first step to getting more of these students to participate is to give them access. Courses must be made available, gatekeeping must stop, and doors must be equitably opened. Luxemburg-Casco is committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds.
“Congratulations to all the teachers and administrators in this district who have worked so tirelessly to both expand access to AP and also to help students succeed on the AP Exams,” said Trevor Packer, the College Board’s head of AP and Instruction. “These teachers and administrators are delivering real opportunity in their schools and classrooms, and students are rising to the challenge.” Helping more students learn at a higher level and earn higher AP scores is an objective of all members of the AP community, from AP teachers to district and school administrators to college professors. Many districts are experimenting with initiatives and strategies to see how they can expand access and improve student performance at the same time.
In 2016, more than 4,000 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, or both, and/or consideration in the admission process.
Inclusion on the 7th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on a review of three years of AP data, from 2014 to 2016, looking across 37 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.
When these outcomes have been achieved among an AP student population in which 30% or more are underrepresented minority students (black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native) and/or 30% or more are low-income students (students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch), a symbol has been affixed to the district name to highlight this work.
Students from all three Kewaunee County high schools spent a portion of their Friday afternoon bringing joy to the residents at the Algoma Long Term Care Unit. Assisting with the radio stations of DoorCountyDailyNews.com’s Project Poinsettia, the students distributed over 40 flowers from Stodola’s IGA to the very residents they worked with during their clinical studies with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s Luxemburg Regional Center.
