On August 20, the Cudahy High School Held its first annual Freshman Cookout.
This event gave the new high school students the opportunity to not only enjoy a great evening with great food but to - more importantly - become acquainted with a new school, classmates, and teachers. This event was a great success!
On September 5, on the night of the first Cudahy High School football game, Freshman students will participate in the annual Frosh Fest. Frosh Fest is a party, held by the high school, that welcomes incoming Freshman. Before the game, Freshmen will have a cookout. Then they get free admittance into the game. After the game, Freshmen will have a dance in the auxiliary gym.

- Learn tips for a successful transition into high school.
- Realize the importance of grades to achieve current and future goals.
- Learn test-taking strategies, which enable them to get better grades.
- Develop important skills through active involvement in extracurricular activities.
- Learn study skills to make their study time more effective.
For more information about this event, go the the Cudahy High School Calendar.
On September 4, Kosciuszko school held a Back to School Picnic for the parents and children attending the school. At this picnic, families enjoyed great food with the teachers, staff, and other families in the school.
At Kosciuszko school, a new extra-curricular group called Playpals has been created to improve the quality of games on the playground.
For this group, responsible students exhibiting certain leadership skills were selected by teachers to participate in the program. During the month of September, the Playpal advisors and Mr. Katte will train the students and work to develop their skills so that they can lead games, model good sportsmanship, and demonstrate sound problem-solving skills on the playground.
Hopefully, the Playpals will be ready, trained, and out on the playground in early October.
On September 21, Kurt Wojciechowski, a teacher from the Cudahy Middle School, will be leaving for a two week trip to the Canadian Arctic to study the environmental changes and effects of global warming taking place in the Canadian Arctic.
Here is his first message and a link to his blog.
Homecoming week for the Cudahy High School runs from September 29 through October 3. For this week, Student Council has established themes for each day!
At Kosciuszko school, the first day of school came and went with no tardy students!
This is a wonderful accomplishment, since a lot of the staff do not recall a day with no tardies. Mr. Katte, the school principal, congratulated the students and told them if they have five days with no tardies this school year, he will shave his head! We will keep you informed!
At Lincoln School, a new mentoring program has been implemented to welcome and help students adjust to their new school. All new students in this program will take part in team building activities with classroom mentors and the mentor will serve as both lunchroom and recess buddies for the new student.
The program gives new students a way to develop special bonds with their mentors/buddies and will hopefully make their first year at Lincoln a great experience!
At Lincoln School, students in grades three through sixth were introduced to Study Island last school year. This wonderful online program helped to advance student skills in reading and math and will continue this year. For Study Island, students have a username and password and can use this site from anywhere they have Internet access.
New this year is Education City. Education City is a similar program for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. This program contains lessons in reading, math, and science. Parents can find out more about Education City as the year progresses.
At the Cudahy Middle School, the Bulldog Boosters allow middle school parents to sit down with school administration to talk about middle school issues. These meetings educate parents on topics that affect adolescent youth while their children go through middle school.
At the first meeting, parents received information about the SOS (Signs of Suicide) program. The SOS program is a topic that health classes plan to highlight this semester. Next month, we discuss Nature's Classroom!
At the Cudahy Elementary Schools, the kindergarten students just met their reading buddies.
Reading buddies is a program throughout the school district that benefits and excites both age groups! The younger children, either 4-year old kindergarten or 5-year old kindergarten, love the one-on-one attention they receive from their buddy. They are also excited to become friends with a "big kid" and friendships form very quickly.
