Superintendent School Bell

I recently read an article in the Wisconsin School News (August 2014 edition) entitled, Leading in Interesting Times (written by R. Davidovich and J. Koehn). The article provided insights for school leaders into how to find a balance between not changing (i.e. maintaining the status quo) and constantly adapting. I found myself reflecting on the need for this dilemma to be better understood by all members of our community- from the parents who have children in school to our local business leaders and to other community members whose taxes continue to support public education, but who may not have children currently attending school. Let me share some of the ideas presented in the article: 1) We have a moral imperative to prepare our children today for their future, not our past. This is and always will be a responsibility of society’s elders. 2) All sectors of our society are struggling to keep up with the accelerated rate of change which currently exists in our world. Education is no exception. 3) Schools have a different responsibility today. When we were an industrial nation, employees who were capable of working in a highly structured job were in high demand. Today, global competition requires students who are independent learners and have high levels of creative thinking and problem-solving skills... Click the "Read the Full Story" link for more.

The Tomah Area School District will not be holding a district-wide school supply distribution at the Robert Kupper Learning Center this year.

Families can request supplies from the school secretary when they attend the open house scheduled for their child’s school. A full listing of all open house dates for the elementary schools are listed on the 'Read the Full Story' link.

Bullying Information and Resources

Dear Parents/Guardians: The issue of school safety is never far from the minds of teachers, support staff members, and administrators. We all understand how very important it is to create a school climate where all students feel welcome, valued, and safe. Perhaps the most prevalent problem impacting a positive school climate found in every school across the country is bullying. It is critical that students know where to turn and how to receive help if they are a victim of this inappropriate and hurtful behavior. The Tomah Area School District recognizes its responsibility to address bullying behavior in our schools, on the bus, and at school-sponsored events. As adults, we understand the importance of serving as positive role models for our students in demonstrating civility and courtesy. The most promising practice for responding to bullying is to focus on teaching all our students to be kind and considerate of one another. Being a person of character - an individual who strives to show compassion for others, who thinks about how his/her comments may affect another person, who is respectful, and caring- is emphasized day in and day out in our schools. Character education activities and anti-bullying messages are prevalent throughout all the Tomah Area School District schools. It is our hope that the resources found on this webpage will provide you with additional information or help. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or building principal if you have concerns about bullying behavior. Working together, we can make a difference!
