Fond du Lac School District Board Member Elizabeth Hayes Not Seeking Re-Election

After 33 years of service to the Fond du Lac School District Board of Education, Elizabeth Hayes has arrived at the decision to not pursue another term as a Board member when her present term expires in April 2019.  

Since being elected to the Board of Education in April 1986, Mrs. Hayes has served as the Board President for 11 years, Vice President for 6 years, and Secretary/Clerk for 13 years. She was also actively involved in various roles for the Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB) including Region 7 Director, a member of the Policy and Resolutions Committee, a delegate at the WASB Annual Education Convention, and attended several National School Board Conventions.

Due to her extensive experience as a Board member and in the field of education, she was nominated by the WASB as a potential appointee to the Professional Standards Council (PSC). That nomination resulted in her appointment to the Council by State Superintendent Tony Evers in April 2017. Other awards include achieving the Level 5 WASB award, being named the Wisconsin AAUW Post-Secondary Teacher of the Year, and, in 2016, being recognized for her dedication with the 30-Year WASB Award.

Fond du Lac School District’s PEP Grant Provides New Heart Rate Monitoring Tool

Students in sixth through twelfth grade in Fond du Lac School District’s physical education (PE) classes learned this year that POLAR A360s aren’t a new kind of snowmobile, but a useful tool that helped them assess their exercise regimen. These devices, some of the latest tools in heart rate technology, help individuals gain specific real-time feedback regarding their exertion levels. The POLAR 360s, purchased with the 2016 Carol M. White PEP Grant funds for Fond du Lac’s Mindfully Active Community (MAC), allowed students to actually see if the effort that they were putting into their workouts were moving them towards a healthier exercise routine and, subsequently, a healthier lifestyle.

Brian Holzman, Theisen Middle School’s PE teacher, feels that the heart rate monitors promoted cardiorespiratory fitness by letting students exercise in their own target heart rate range. “I think one of the most useful features that the heart rate monitors have to offer is giving us concrete evidence of a student’s participation level and their overall effort. Sometimes it may appear that a student is not putting forth as much effort as the other students in the class, but their heart rate will tell us just the opposite.”

 

Sabish students increase their fitness in the new fitness center and with heart rate technology.

My Stop App Helps Parents Track Buses

Fond du Lac School District parents can now use the free My Stop app to determine the location of their child's school bus. The My Stop app displays the school bus's location on a map, as well as provides the estimated time of arrival to a specific student's bus stop. The location of the bus is automatically updated every few seconds to accommodate any delays.

Approximately 1300 students ride the bus each day to and from Fond du Lac public and parochial schools, according to Marian Sheridan, Fond du Lac School District’s Coordinator of School Health and Safety Programs and Attendance and Transportation. GPS technology was installed in every school bus last summer.  This year, new computer software was added that links the GPS data with the school bus route database. 
 
"We know that parents want to have access to transportation information so they don't have to call to find out if buses are running late," Sheridan said. "The  primary intent of the app is for parents to have this transportation information at their fingertips."
