At Lincoln School, teachers have implemented a new intervention program for their classes. For 30 minutes each day and for each grade level, teachers:
- provide small group instruction
- give extra study time to their students
This intervention program serves to both assist the children who need extra help and to provide extra time for students to practice and improve their existing skills.
Come watch and cheer on our students in the Cudahy High School Homecoming Parade. The parade starts at 5 p.m. in the school student parking lot and runs down Lake Drive to Munkwitz Ave. to the football field.
The students at Kosciuszko school recently had Brewer Spirit Day. Both staff and students showed up wearing their favorite Brewers attire. Go Brewers!
This year, the second grade students from General Mitchell school will be pen pals with the second grade students from Park View school. The students from both schools plan to write letters to each other and meet throughout the year.
Every month, the Renaissance Program at the Cudahy High School recognizes one student from each grade as the student of the month. The first Renaissance Students of the Month winners of this school year were recently selected. They are:
Senior - Amanda Janik
Junior - Samantha Farvour
Sophomore - Thong Xiong
Freshman - Gillian Miner
The students at General Mitchel school recently studied the seven steps to the scientific method: Problem, Research, Hypothesis, Experiment, Data, Observation, and Conclusion. In doing so, the students researched and experimented to determine: What is Oobleck?.
Throughout the experiment, students used all 5 of their senses (aside from taste). They noted scientific properties and these properties were shared as a group. When all the properties were listed, the students held a scientific convention to determine which properties would become scientific laws. A scientific law is a property that all scientists agree upon.
On September 25, Lincoln School held a celebration for all the students who were either on time every day or had all their work completed on time.
The celebration consisted of relay races and games: a pajama pant balloon race, a penny on a shoe race, a marshmallow on a spoon race, and a clean out my backyard game. Both students and staff had a lot of fun!
At Kosciuszko school, the staff trains student leaders to encourage proper sportsmanship, model conflict resolution skills, and introduce new games on the playground.
Katie Houk, a teacher from the Cudahy Middle School was recently selected and went on a one day Milwaukee Jewish Council sponsored trip to the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. Houk flew out of Milwaukee to Washington D.C. on September 22.
"It was an amazing trip, with so much information. Since I have taught and studied this time period, this trip really put into perspective how real and important it is to learn history."
The Milwaukee Jewish Council is having a follow up day session in November for all the teachers to share and discuss how to use the trip to create something new and innovative in the classrooms.
The homecoming dance for Cudahy High School was held on Saturday, October 4.

On October 18 at UW-Whitwater Perkins Stadium, the Cudahy High School Marching band scored 74 points (7th place) in the Class AA division at the 2008 WSMA State Marching Band Championships.
This year's show was "The Feeling's Back" featuring the music of Chuck Mangione. Great Job!
The marching band traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 25 to compete in the Youth in Music Regional Championships at the Metrodome.
This unique competition gave the students a chance to compete with bands from outside Wisconsin. The students experienced exhibition performances by the University of Minnesota Marching Band, UW-Eau-Claire Marching Band, the Minnesota Opera, Minne-Brass, and the U.S. Army Rock Band. The Minnesota trip was the final performance this season for the Cudahy High School students.
The Walk to School Day at Kosciuszko, despite the threat of rain, was a great success!
