Fond du Lac High School will be presenting the musical, A Christmas Carol, from November 1-3 at 7:00 p.m. and November 4 at 1:00 p.m. A special dinner option will be available on Saturday, November 3 beginning at 5:00 p.m.

Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island), breathe fantastic new life into the classic tale of A Christmas Carol.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

Fond du Lac High School's production will combine over 100 high school students singing and acting on stage, running lights and sound, playing in the pit orchestra and working backstage. Directors for A Christmas Carol are Steve Wilson and Cory Schneider, choreographers are Ann Kelly and Gina Paveglio from Wempner’s School of Dance, and costuming by Liz Shipe.

Hidden in Plain Sight: What Every Adult Should Know is a life size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The exhibit identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. The presentation is for adults only (21 years of age and older). 

The goal of the presentation at Theisen Middle School auditorium, 525 E. Pioneer Road, on October 18 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. is to educate adults who are influential in the lives of youth, so they know what seemingly innocent items, can actually be an indication of substance abuse. In addition to learning about the various hiding spots and items that may indicate use, audience members will learn signs and symptoms associated with drug and abuse, as well as prevention strategies, and steps in helping children, students, patients, clients, families, friends or coworkers receive the necessary help. There will also be an opportunity for participants to ask questions and get a closer look at the items located in the bedroom.

Academic and real life opportunities for students at Fond du Lac High School (FHS) are endless and the rewards the students receive for their participation in these activities live on forever.  From national recognition in journalism and musical honors to youth apprenticeships and business partnerships, the experiences are exactly what today’s young adults deserve to help prepare them for future.  One of these avenues is provided for the FHS marketing and entrepreneurship students who operate the Cardinal’s Nest.   

Each year a team of students, typically seniors, have the unique opportunity to become involved in the school-based-enterprise (SBE), the Cardinal’s Nest.  From establishing and maintaining a product mix to building relationships with vendors and customers, to analyzing and strategizing ways to improve sales and inventory controls while demonstrating financial and social responsibility, this team receives “real world” marketing and entrepreneurial experience.

Walk to School Day, which for a majority of the schools will be on Wednesday, October 10,  hopes to address the growing concern with lack of physical activity as well as increase awareness in protecting our environment. Over the last 30 years, the percentage of children biking and walking to school has declined from 50% or more to where it is now closer to about 15% that bike or walk.


For some families, this is an opportunity to give walking and bicycling to school a try. Walk to School Day is not a new initiative. The Partnership for a Walkable America sponsored the first National Walk Our Children to School Day in Chicago in 1997, modeled after the United Kingdom’s walk to school events. In the U.S., Walk to School grows in numbers and relevance each year. Whatever the motivation, Walk to School boils down to families and community.


“October is Child Health Month and walking or bicycling to school gives children time for physical activity and a sense of responsibility and independence; it also creates an opportunity to be outdoors and provides time to connect with parents, friends and neighbors. The entire community benefits when there is less traffic congestion,” says Marian Sheridan, School Health and Safety Programs Coordinator for the Fond du Lac School District. “We encourage students and parents to review the list below and take the opportunity to participate in Walk to School Day.” Schools will also be providing incentive prizes and/or raffle drawings provided through Safe Routes to School for students who choose to participate in this activity:


Chegwin Elementary School On Friday, October 5 staff will plan to meet students at two locations at 7:50 a.m.: McKinley Park and the sidewalk by the parking lot of U.S. Bank where students will be joined by employees from U.S. Bank, Chegwin’s Partners in Education. Participating students will have their names entered into a drawing for prizes.
