    Monticello Schools Welcomes New Staff

    Kenny Halloran is very excited to be the 7-12 PE and Health Teacher at Monticello. He was born

    and raised in Mount Prospect Illinois, and is a big Chicago sports fan. This past May, he graduated

    from UW Oshkosh with degrees in Physical Education, Health Education, and Adapted Physical

    Education. At UW Oshkosh, he also competed in Cross Country and Track. He also just got married

    this past June to his wife Kelly, who is an Elementary school PE teacher in Oregon, WI. His hobbies

    include: running, playing sports, lifting weights, and doing anything outdoors.

    Paul Burk is starting his 18th year as an instructor, having taught English at New Glarus High School

    for 16 years. In addition, he taught Speech and Writing for the University of Phoenix for five

    years. This past year Paul trained and taught for Madison College as a Fire Instructor and continues

    to do so during nights and weekends. Paul graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with

    a degree in English, graduated from Edgewood College with a teaching degree specializing in English,

    and has a Masters degree in English Education. When hes not working he spends time with his

    awesome children and wife, hunts when he can, plays volleyball, rebuilds Ramblers and Studebakers

    and is a volunteer firefighter for New Glarus. Paul looks forward to becoming acquainted with the

    students, parents, and staff at Monticello High School.

    Carley Legler grew up in Belleville and currently still resides there. She has been a substitute

    teacher for Monticello for the last two school years, before joining full time as the Middle School

    Special Education Teacher. She graduated from Edgewood College with an Education Degree. Prior to

    volunteer EMT for Belleville EMS. She is very excited to start her career at the Monticello School

    District!

  • Erikke Grothaus is our new Director of Pupil Services. She spent the past 8 years teaching students with

    Exceptional Educational Needs at the Early Childhood and early Elementary levels in the DeForest Area

    School District. She comes from a long line of teachers and administrators including grandparents,

    uncles, and cousins and feels likes this profession is in her blood. Erikke lives in DeForest with her

    husband and 3 daughters; when shes not providing transportation to school functions or watching the

    kids' sports, she enjoys being with her family, doing yoga, mud runs, gardening, crochet, and

    reading. Her philosophy about education is that all children can and will learn, provided they have the

    right supports and environments. She believes the job of teachers is to find the best way to create that

    ideal learning environment for each and every child. Every decision made in a school district should be

    with the ever-present question of, "How will this improve the learning for the students?"

    Elizabeth Willson is the new Monticello Middle School

    Special Education Aide. She has lived in Monticello for 11

    years with her husband Nathan, and two daughters Ella, 8,

    and Gracelyn, 5. Elizabeth is also currently employed with

    Kids Korner. Last year, she worked in the Monticello School

    District helping in both the 4 Year Old Kindergarten and in

    the 3rd Grade classrooms and says it is truly rewarding

    watching children learn and grow throughout the school

    year. She feels honored to be part of the Monticello School

    District Staff.

    A Message from the Principal by Mark Gustafson The 2015-16 school year is off to a great start. Our teachers, students, and paraprofessionals returned to

    school ready to teach and learn. We have a few new faces in our buildings, so please make sure to say

    hello when you see them and make them feel welcome.

    Our new staff members are: Erikke Nystrom-Grothaus-Director of Pupil Services, Paul Burk-High School

    English, Carley Legler- Middle School Special Education, Kenny Halloran- Physical Education and Health,

    Liz Willson- Middle School Special Education Paraprofessional. We are excited to have them on our team

    at Monticello.

    This school year starts the third year of our 1:1 laptop initiative for our 6-12 grade students. Our

    teachers are able to prepare our students for the world of technology so that they can be better prepared

    when they leave our district and venture into the real world. This year our 5th grade class and some of

    our 7th graders are using Chromebooks instead of our Lenovo laptops. Chromebooks provide the

    students with a new kind of technology that enables them to get logged in and working within 10

    seconds. These Chromebooks are smaller and less expensive, and provide another avenue for our

    students to use and prepare for the 21st century. We wouldnt be able to supply our students with these

    devices without the support of the Monticello community.

    Our fall sports teams are in the middle of their seasons. Our football, cross-country, volleyball,

    cheerleaders, and middle school girls basketball teams are working hard to be competitive with the teams

    in our conference. They deserve a shout-out as they represent our school and community.

    One of the goals that we have as a district is to open avenues of communication with our entire

    community using social media. Make sure to check out and follow our school page on Facebook. We are

    constantly updating events and celebrating the great things that are happening in our schools on our

    Facebook page. Be watching for new announcements regarding social media outlets that will help to

  • celebrate our student successes within our school. Please dont be afraid to contact the school if you have

    questions.

    As the school year hits full swing I would like to take a moment to thank our teaching and

    paraprofessional staff. We have great educators in our schools who truly care about the success of the

    students that they see on a daily basis. Our teaching and support staff deserve a great big thank you

    from our parents and community members. The Monticello School District has a formula that will ensure

    success for our studentsgreat parents, great students, great teachers, and great community support. I

    am looking forward to a great school year. GO PONIES!!!!!!! Mark Gustafson, PreK-12 Principal

    4 Year Old Kindergarten News by Kristy Auz Welcome to school 4K Kiddos!

    After about a month of school

    were starting to learn

    everyones name (even the

    teachers new last name!).

    Were also learning how to

    make friends. Making good

    choices and practicing routines

    are very important for us

    every day! We bring in our

    folders, and choose our milk

    right away when we arrive.

    From there we go about our

    day and follow our schedule.

    On Mondays we have library

    with Ms. Denise (AM) and Ms.

    Jodi (PM). Were learning that

    if we bring our book back, we

    can check out a new one! On

    Thursdays we have projects

    with Ms. Paula. Were

    practicing important fine

    motor skills while having fun

    with Ms. Paula! In September

    our themes were: getting

    ready for school and apples.

    We learned that apples grow

    on trees and they grow from a

    flower! An apple starts to

    grow after the petals fall off

    the flower. Weve begun

    learning about words and

    letters and rhymes. We talked

    about the first day of fall

    (September 23rd) at school

    and found out that fall is also

    called autumn.

    Its so exciting to be starting

    our second month of school!

    Fall is such a great time of

    year, but it does get chilly, so

    parents please remember to

    send warm jackets (maybe

    even mittens or gloves) as

    needed in October. We will

    have outside recess every day

    even when its chilly. Its

    important to make sure your

    child has what he or she

    needs to stay warm!

    In October our themes will be

    leaves, and pumpkins/harvest.

    We also get to join the

    kindergarteners for our very

    first field trip to the pumpkin

    patch! The Richard Smith

    family has graciously offered

    to have us come again this

    year. Our field trip is on

    Friday, October 9th. We cant

    wait to pick out some

    pumpkins!

    Please remember the

    following important dates:

    Friday (10/9) is our field trip,

    Thursday and Friday (10/22 &

    10/23) we have no school.

    Please keep watching your

    childs folder for more

    information about our field

    trip! Have a happy and safe

    October! ~Ms. Auz~

    additional activities will be posted as it becomes available.

    Hands, Head, Heart, and Health by Tristin Flanagan and Rudy Wicker

    Did you know that October is

    National 4-H Month? We have

    a local 4-H club here in

    Monticello named Washington

    Center 4-H. Every year, we

    show projects at the Green

    County Fair. We show

    animals, do archery and air

    rifles, sewing, photography,

    woodworking, etc. We do

    community service to make

    our community better. For

    community service we help

    the elderly, clean up the

    community, and provide the

    hospital with tie blankets. Our

    meetings are one a month on

    the second Monday of the

    month at the school cafeteria

    at 7:00pm. After each

    meeting, we do a fun activity.

    Once a year, we do a fun

    activity such as roller skating

    as a reward for working so

    hard. 4-H is lots of fun, and

    we would love to have more

    members join our club. Any

    students grade 5K and up are

    able to join 4-H. For more

    information on our great

    club, contact our adult leaders

    Sally Roe at 558-9959 or

    Carolyn Schwartzlow at 214-

    3417. Happy National 4-H

    Month!

    Safety First!!

    Each year Monticellos safety

    team, made of teachers and staff,

    works hard ensuring that we are using best practices to keep all of our student and staff members safe when at school. The team meets periodically to discuss, implement, and monitor safety

    and crisis issues involving the Monticello schools. Safety team members are active in attending local and state professional developments opportunities and seminars. The district has

    collaborated with the Monticello

    Police Department, Monticello Fire

    Department, and the Green County Sheriffs Department on many safety procedures and initiatives. Since 2009, we have created or annually revised crisis plans, evacuation and tornado

    procedures, lockdown procedures, playground safety, and numerous other issues related to school safety. It is an ongoing process because of changing information, expectations, and guidelines.

    Entering this school year we

    made some significant changes to

    our active intruder procedures. In keeping with best practices, we discussed all information with our entire staff and now have shared the same message with all students. Please feel free to ask

    your child what they learned about Monticellos safety plan and contact us with any questions you might have.

    What we do:

    Fire Drills

    Tornado Drills

    Lock Down Drills

    Mock Intruder Drills

    Green County Mass Casualty Drills

    Green County Law Enforcement Dog Checks

    Bag Checks

  • Locker Checks

    Guest Speakers and Demonstrations

    Please keep an eye out for safety concerns and feel free to let us know any concerns we may need to discuss.

    Nursing notes

    Hope everyones school year is off to a terrific start! Couple of things

    PLAY WITH THE PONIES! Our Fall 2015 night will be Wednesday, October 14th. Elementary

    students are welcome to come on out and spend a few hours playing volleyball, basketball, and

    football with our terrific high school student-athletes. Free t-shirts will again be given out to all

    participants, along with some fun, active door prizes and healthy snacks! Come get some exercise

    and have a great time! A permission slip to return to school is included in the newsletter.

    GIVING HANDWASHING A HIGH FIVE! We are drowning germs by remembering to wash our

    hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially before eating and after using the bathroom.

    Elementary students did some fun activities and experiments learning all about germs and how

    hand washing helps keep us well! And ask them to show how we wash our hands in Monticello!

    And encourage it at home, too.

    Flu shots! Unfortunately, the Green County Health Department is not offering a school flu

    immunization clinic this school year. I encourage you to make an appointment have your child

    immunized for seasonal flu as it is the best way to prevent influenza illness and its complications.

    The nasal spray is a great option for healthy school aged children. This seasons vaccines have

    been updated to better match circulating viruses. The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for

    everyone 6 months and older. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for protection to set in so

    start thinking about getting vaccinated now.

    We are working hard to keep ourselves healthy, but an occasional illness in kids that keeps them home

    from school is inevitable. Below are some reminders for when to keep you child home from school.

    When do I need to keep my child home from school?

    Sometimes this isnt always a clear-cut decision! Generally speaking, a student should be able to fully

    participate in class (including gym and recess) when he/she is at school. If your child is not feeling well

    enough to do this, he/she should stay home for the day. Some other general guidelines:

    tel:608-558-9174

  • Fever >100: Fevers indicate a child is fighting off some sort of illness. Your child should be fever-

    free for 24 hours (without any fever reducing medications like Tylenol or ibuprofen) before

    returning to school.

    Vomiting or diarrhea: Please keep your child home until he/she is able to keep down food from at

    least the evening before and breakfast that morning.

    Strep throat: Students can return to school after being on antibiotics for 24 hours.

    When deciding if your child can go to school, use your best judgment and keep in mind that if your child is

    uncomfortable, he/she wont be able to concentrate or learn. You may also want to call your childs

    medical provider for further help deciding. Please remember to call the Pony Attendance line 938-4194 to

    report when you child will be absent due to illness/injury.

    Monticello Music Parents

    Monticello Music Parents would

    like to invite you to one of our

    meetings! The group meets

    every 1st Thursday night of the

    month at 6:30 in the choir

    room. There are many

  • opportunities offered to the

    children through the music

    programs, and with that

    comes a responsibility from

    the families and the

    community.

    What does Music

    Parents do one

    might ask?

    Music Parents helps to provide

    several opportunities for the

    band/choir students of

    Monticello. The money that

    they raise throughout the year

    benefits the students and

    music program by helping to

    cut the cost of travel and

    performance opportunities for

    the students, helps the music

    program with costs during

    host events held at our school,

    helps with buying new

    instruments for the band

    program, and offers

    scholarships to multiple

    students at the end of the

    year.

    How much time do I

    need to donate to be

    a part of the group?

    The meetings begin at 6:30

    every 1st Thursday night of the

    month. They last

    approximately one hour, after

    that its up to you how much

    of your time you would like to

    donate. There are a few

    fundraising opportunities

    throughout the year that we

    need volunteers, but volunteer

    opportunities are often split

    into smaller slots of time. We

    appreciate any time that you

    are willing to give! And we

    would love for anyone to join!

    You dont need to have a

    student in school or in the

    music program. Just a love of

    music will do!

    By joining this group you are

    helping to alleviate the

    responsibility of many small

    tasks placed upon the music

    teachers, giving those

    teachers more time with your

    child and betterment of the

    program. The music program

    has been extremely strong in

    our community for many years

    and it is something that

    community members look

    forward to seeing and hearing.

    To continue this strong

    tradition that so many of us

    are proud of, the program

    needs to have continued

    support from the community.

    Consider joining us this

    upcoming 1st Thursday, on

    October 1st at 6:30. There are

    many exciting things

    happening with these

    programs this year and many

    great opportunities for the

    students of Monticello. Just to

    name a fewa musical, a trip

    to New York, and a year-end

    revue of all of the talent that

    our school has to offer. We

    would love to see any new

    faces and will take any time

    that you are able to give!

    We are beginning our fifth

    We only meet a few times

    commitment is minimal.

    - provided scholarship monies to two FCCLA members who graduated in 2013.

    - provided financial support to FCCLA State Officer, Dylan Beckwith.

    - conducted our annual soup mix fundraiser.

  • money, but you intend to

    apply for a student loan, you will still want to apply for financial aid using the

    FAFSA. Most colleges are requiring that you file a FAFSA before you may be considered for any financial aid through their college (this includes student loans). The process is free and the

    online form is easy to use. You cannot submit FAFSA forms before January 1st, so if you apply for your PIN by December 1st, you should receive it in plenty of time

    before you need to use your PIN number. There will be an informational financial aid meeting on January 4, 2016 from 6:30-7:30 PM at the New Glarus High School.

    All of our juniors will be taking the ACT Plus Writing test in March of 2016. This is a requirement by the Wisconsin DPI so it will be paid for by the state. Encourage your child to take

    this testing seriously because their scores may be

    used for college admissions. If your son or daughter chooses to retake the ACT

    test after the March date, to

    try and achieve a higher score, you will have to pay for the retake. The cost of

    taking the ACT ONLY is $39.50 or the ACT Plus Writing is $56.50. You need to register by a certain date to avoid late fees which would be an additional $25.00.

    The following are the remaining test dates and the registration dates for this school year: Test Registration

    If your son/daughter decides to take the ACT again they

    will need to register to take the ACT online at www.actstudent.org They may also want to visit the ACT website for electronic practice tests. The registration is not hard to fill

    out but does take some time so dont wait till the

    registration date to begin the process.

    There are ACT Prep classes

    offered at Belleville (late fall & winter) & Evansville (winter & spring) schools for

    our students who would like to prepare for the ACT. The course fee for this 7 week, 16-hour course is $155 and covers all materials. I have $20 coupons which may be used when registering for
