Eimermann honored for volunteer work

Hamilton High School senior Dana Eimermann will receive a President’s Volunteer Service Award for her dedicated service to the community. Eimermann organized “Dance for a New Day,” a dance-a-thon that raised more than $10,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin last year. She spent more than 175 hours working on the project from October 2004 to March 2005.

“Dana is an excellent student who is focused on and committed to making a positive difference in her community,” said Hamilton High School Principal David Furrer.

The award was presented by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation. Sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the program recognizes young people across the country for outstanding community service activities. Eimermann participated in the Spirit of the Community program as a representative of Hamilton High School.

Session slated to help students understand PLAN, EXPLORE results

Freshman and sophomores at Hamilton High School who did not attend the PLAN and EXPLORE interpretation sessions during parent-teacher conferences will attend a session during their advisement period. The session will give students the opportunity to better understand the meaning behind the scores of the standardized tests they took in December.

Hamilton sophomores took the PLAN test, and freshmen took the EXPLORE. The tests covered English, mathematics, reading and science content areas. Both tests help identify individual academic strengths and areas that need improvement, and give information that may help in setting career goals and planning for college.

PLAN test results provide an estimated ACT composite score, and EXPLORE results estimate what a student’s PLAN score might be.

For more information, please contact Jean Freund, Hamilton guidance counselor, at (262) 246-6476 ext. 1124.

Templeton plans Scholastic Book Fair April 4-7

Templeton Middle School will host the Scholastic Book Fair April 4-7. The book fair is open to students during the school day and to families and community members April 4 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. during Family Night.

In addition to the chance to browse and purchase books, Family Night will feature an ice cream social, student art exhibit and drawing for prizes. The evening is also a chance to help classrooms build their libraries. Visitors to the fair can check each teacher’s classroom wish list, then purchase and donate a requested book. Every donated book will have a bookplate with the name of the donor.

The fair will also be open during parent-teacher conferences April 6 from 3:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.

Along with books, the fair will feature posters, pencils, erasers, kits, cookbooks and other items. The average cost of a paperback book is $4.99. Money earned from the fair will be used to purchase materials for the Templeton library.

The Templeton Home and School parent group donated enough money for each student to receive a $5 voucher toward the purchase of a book. Vouchers will be given to students when they come to the fair with their classroom teacher.

Templeton Middle School is located at N59 W22490 Silver Spring Dr., Sussex.

Charger Robotics wins St. Louis regional, prepares for Wisconsin regional

Hamilton High School’s Charger Robotics Team continued to be a force within the FIRST Robotics community by taking home the championship and another award March 12 from the St. Louis regional competition.

The Charger team was named champions after battling a day and a half in qualification matches and proceeding undefeated in the elimination rounds. Charger Robotics competed in an alliance with teams from Fayetteville, Tenn., and Hammond, Ind. and came out champions, which qualifies them for another trip to national competition.

In addition to picking up the regional championship, the team earned the Kleiner Perrkins Caulfield and Byers Entreprenuership Award. For the second consecutive year, the team received the award for development of a business plan that ensures its long-term success and viability.

Before competing at the national competition in Atlanta, the team will prepare for the Wisconsin regional in Milwaukee. Hosted at the U.S. Cellular Arena and open to the public, the competition draws 33 teams from the Midwest, including 19 from Wisconsin. Nearly 1,000 students will vie for the Robotics competition and 12 awards. FIRST Lego League and FIRST VEX competitions will be demonstrated.

Hamilton High School teacher John Budish is the co- chair of the all-volunteer committee responsible for funding and organizing the Wisconsin regional event. He said he is thrilled that Hamilton’s team will enter the Wisconsin regional as St. Louis champions and encourages community members to support the local team.

FIRST — For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology — was founded in 1992 by Inventor Dean Kamen to encourage students to consider careers in science and technology. The FIRST Robotics competition now features more than 1,125 teams from around the world, 33 regional events and a 330-team championship in Atlanta.

Mathematics intervention teachers present

Hamilton School District’s Early Mathematics Empowerment (EME) program may be one of the first of its kind outside of New Zealand. Four part-time teachers who provide mathematics intervention services described strategies they use in working with 119 students in kindergarten and first and second grade.

EME teachers Charlotte Coe, Robyn Hassani, Nancy Lorenz and Donna Uselmann talked to School Board members about the program that was conceived based on the district’s highly successful Early Reading Empowerment program implemented more than a decade ago.

The district looked at promising research from the National Research Council and researchers who followed reading intervention programs. They found that early intervention with students who struggle with mathematic concepts leads to proficiency during elementary school years.

Working without a model in the states, the district implemented a program that provides students with four to 12 weeks of additional mathematics instruction. The program has evolved since last year when Lorenz was the first teacher hired to work at Lannon Elementary School. This year, all the district’s elementary schools have a part-time position in place to screen students and provide services.

The teachers say they provide students with strategies and the confidence to bring them success in mathematics.

When students reach a level of understanding, they exit the program. So far, 24 students have exited the program. Students who have received EME services will be monitored using standardized and local assessments to measure their long-term mathematics progress after they leave the program.

Staff members from other school districts have called on the teachers to learn how the district offers services to students. While the home-grown program seems to be working well in Hamilton, Lorenz said it involves more than just purchasing a packaged program.

School Board members complimented the teachers on their work and said they will be interested in seeing the long-term impact for students.

Year-end projects approved

School Board members gave the Buildings and Grounds Department approval to go ahead with projects using year-end funds. A total of $1.6 million in projects was approved, but not all the projects will be undertaken

Buildings and Grounds staff members will accomplish projects based on year-end funds available in the 2005-06 budget. Among the more significant projects is remodeling of the high school library, window replacements, bleacher additions and band uniform replacements.

Athletic co-op participation approved

Hamilton High School boys will continue to participate in swimming and hockey programs, thanks to School Board approval of two co-op programs. The Swim Program is offered at Menomonee Falls High School, and includes Germantown High School this year for the first time. Germantown previously had a Swim Team, but filled in its pool because it could not afford to operate it and a referendum that would have addressed the operational costs failed. The hockey program is a cooperative with Menomonee Falls, Germantown and Slinger. The program is 100-percent funded with student fees.

Falls/Sussex Youth Leadership planners recognized

Members of the Falls/Sussex Youth Leadership planning committee were recognized for their work in providing leadership development opportunities for students at Menomonee Falls and Hamilton high schools. The committee members who were recognized at the meeting were David Johnson, Sheri Pellechia, Christine Burdick and Drew Dittrich. Those who were not able to attend were Keith Marty, Alex Taylor, Mary Ann Noshay and Beth Harwood.

Personnel news

In personnel business, the School Board:

  • approved the resignation of Marcy Special Services paraprofessional Nancy Ruiz;
  • changed the contract of Templeton paraprofessional Jane Gutmann from 6 to 7.5 hours per day; and
  • issued nonrenewal notices to 13 staff members. Most of the letters go to staff members who were issued replacement contracts because they were hired past the date when regular contracts are issued
