NCLB survey (via WI Dept. Public Instruction)
In 2011, the U.S. Department of Education (USED) offered states the opportunity to apply for flexibility on certain provisions of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA, currently known as NCLB, the No Child Left Behind Act). In exchange for the flexibility, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) designed a plan, which was approved in July 2012, to improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, increase equity, and improve the quality of instruction. Existing waivers expire at the end of the 2014-15 school year. USED is offering states the opportunity to renew their waivers. DPI is applying for a three-year renewal, through the 2017-18 school year.
As we did in 2012, DPI is conducting this survey to gather public (parents, community members, teachers, support staff, etc.) feedback and guidance on Wisconsin's flexibility renewal request. This survey will be open until March 6, 2015. DPI welcomes specific feedback and will take all survey responses into consideration as we develop the renewal proposal to be submitted for federal review by March 30, 2015.

A Message from our School Nurse
The CDC has reported an outbreak of measles in the U.S. Measles can spread easily to and from unimmunized children. Juneau County Health Department recommends that getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent measles. It is important for you to check your child’s immunization records to make sure he/she has received two doses of MMR vaccine. In addition to being at risk for getting sick if exposed to measles, children with one or zero doses of MMR will not be able to come to school for two weeks if exposed. This includes those children who have been exempted from measles vaccination for medical, religious, or other reasons. If your child needs the MMR vaccine, please call your health care provider or Juneau County Health Department at 847-8373, or http://www.co.juneau.wi.gov/health1.html . For a link to the measles Fact Sheet go to https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/p4/p42174.pdf.
Breakfast is a good thing!
When students need to take achievement tests, schools strongly urge them to eat breakfast first on testing days. Why? Because we know that when students eat breakfast, they perform better and are better able to concentrate. Yet on “normal” days, many students fail to eat breakfast; they’re too busy, too tired, or just don’t know what to eat.
Let’s help students to perform better every day, by making sure they eat a healthy breakfast at home or at school.

The Class of 2015 would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Kevin Long and TRICOR Insurance out of Platteville, WI for their donation. Kevin and TRICOR heard about the generosity of our senior class and decided to give something back. Kevin wrote out a personal check for $25.00 and TRICOR issued a $100.00 check. The class will be meeting to vote on what to do with the money. Thank you!
