Author Marla McKenna Visits KASD Elementary Students

On Monday, April 30 and Tuesday May 1, 2018, Kaukauna Area School District Elementary students at Park Community Charter School and Tanner Early Learning Center had the opportunity to learn the superhero secrets of Author Marla McKenna. During the interactive visits, Ms. McKenna introduced herself to students, telling them a little about herself and her first book, Mom’s Big Catch. After reading the books to students, she then went through the process of writing a book, from formulating ideas and characters through the editing, illustrating and publishing processes. Students then had a little additional fun asking questions and taking a look at the photos and videos Ms. McKenna shared. “Having Ms. McKenna here creates an engaging experience where our students can connect what we learn every day about respect, integrity and responsibility with all that goes on outside of school,” said Ken Kortens, Principal at Park Community Charter School. “The themes are patience, positivity and perseverance to reach goals really hit home with our kids and reinforced their daily work.” After student presentations on Monday, April 30, Ms. McKenna also held an evening presentation at Tanner, and took part in a book signing during their “Cozy up and Read” event. A similar event was held at Park Community Charter School on the evening of Tuesday, May 1. About Marla McKenna Marla McKenna is the author of several children’s books, including Mom’s Big Catch, which was inspired by an actual event that took place at Miller Park. Her other children’s books include: Sadie's Big Steal is the second book in the Mom's Big Catch series, and it focuses on the important message of anti-bullying, friendship, respect and kindness; I'm a Secret Superhero inspires children to find their inner super power and use their special gifts to find their purpose and make a difference; and A Soccer Summer Dream with the Milwaukee Torrent, which is currently in production and will be released soon. While in school, Marla was involved in music, sports and theater. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism – Advertising and Public Relations. Marla has always been passionate about the creative aspect of writing and graphic design, and her work has appeared in magazines, brochures, newsletters, billboards, DVDs and radio spots, and is now featured in these children’s books. She has loved turning her passion for writing into a career and is excited about the opportunities she has to share her positive message with kids of all ages while visiting schools across the country. Teaching children that dreams really can come true and the importance of never giving up, is the theme she includes in her presentations.

It's not techno ... It's TechYES!

Kaukauna Area School District tried something new during the last all-staff professional learning day – a Technology Summit, planned and coordinated by the District’s Library Media Specialists (in conjunction with a number of technology leaders and teacher presenters). The 4-hour summit, featuring the tagline of “It’s not TechNO … It’s TechYes!” was a chance for all staff to increase their understanding of a number of different technology tools designed for classroom instruction. The summit began in the afternoon with a quick welcome from Superintendent Duerwaechter in the Kaukauna High School Auditorium, followed by a Technology Showcase where many staff members showed videos demonstrating projects or ongoing ways they integrate technology within their classrooms. After the Technology Showcase, staff members were asked to participate in two rounds of breakout sessions, choosing from more than 30 different technology-related presentations by KASD Instructional Technology leaders. Topics ranged from using tools like Google, BenQ, Infinite Campus and eduClimber to applying the RAT model to technology, extending vocabulary, and communicating with parents. “This day of professional growth also served as a celebration for our District,” said Kaukauna Area School District Director of Secondary Education Matthew Smith. “It was a chance for us to showcase our successes and continue to learn from our technology leaders about new ways to embrace and utilize technology within our curriculum.”

Governor Walker Signs Safety Bill at Haen

OnMonday, March 26, 2018, Governor Walker visited Victor Haen Elementary School to sign the School Safety Bill, intended to bring $100 million to Wisconsin school districts to improve building security. Haen 4th grade students, who study U. S. Government along with Wisconsin and Local Government, hadthe opportunity to witness the signing after Governor Walker spent time in a couple of classrooms talking with students. It was such a unique and special opportunity for our students and for Kaukauna Area School District. While we understand and appreciate the sensitivity and political nature surrounding school safety, we welcome any effort by the State to support safer schools in Wisconsin communities.This is one of many steps in the continuous process of improving safety within our schools, which is good for students and staff, as well as the community.

Students Host Computer Classes for Senior Citizens

Since 2014, Kaukauna High School’s National Honor Society students have offered a series of computer classes each year, designed specifically for senior citizens in our community. The classes will be available again this year, held on January 24th, February 28th and March 14th, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the computer labs at Kaukauna High School, 1701 County CE. This is a free course. The classes are designed for all experience levels on any device (phone, computer, tablet, etc.) and will cover topics like: How to get started using computers; word processing; internet basics; using search engines; online shopping; social media; and more! National Honor Society students will serve as instructors and class assistants, teaching basic skills and working 1-on-1 with attendees to answer individual questions. Last year, then juniors James Murphy and Ben Brochtrup revamped the curriculum for the popular class as one of their service projects, making sure that all of the material was up to date with current technology standards and that the classes were covering topics that were of greatest interest to the community they were serving. “By pairing up National Honor Society students with class members, we created a very relaxed learning environment where class members could move at their own pace. While some had specific problems they were looking to address, others simply wanted to know more about technology and its growing impact on the world around them,” said Ben, now a senior at KHS and a National Honor Society leader. “We found that technology served as a great medium for two drastically different generations to connect.” “I have had so much fun helping run the class. It’s so cool to see the connection between our NHS members and the community,” added James, also now a senior and National Honor Society leader. “We made it both as fun and informational as possible, and the class members are so kind and eager to learn.” Participants are welcome to bring their own devices, but computers will be available on-site as well. The deadline for registration for the Computer Classes is Monday, January 22rd. To register, call Karla Miller-Flynn at (920) 766- 6113 ext. 5826, or email Please include your name, phone number, level of experience with computers and any specific topics you would like to see covered.
