Hiring an additional Speech and Language Pathologist (.60 FTE) will address needs at Woodside, Maple Avenue and Marcy Elementary Schools for the remainder of the 2022-23 school year.

Elementary Principals give report on school progress, initiatives

Principals from all four elementary schools gave a joint report to the School Board about how they worked together to review currant data and begin adjusting plans to tackle new goals. The elementary goal is to have 80 percent of students identified as proficient/advanced in the areas of math and reading, as measured by the Wisconsin Forward Exam by 2025. The School Board approved the plan.

It was also noted populations continue to grow each year. Maple Avenue Elementary experienced considerable growth this year. Lannon Elementary has returned to a population equal to its population when it served K-5, prior to the addition of Silver Spring Intermediate School.


Principal Deanna Wellens and Associate Principal Susan Schramka gave a report to the School Board reviewing last year’s data and focusing efforts on common goals. Two areas of focus will be improving writing skills and increasing students’ sense of belonging at school. The School Board approved the plan.
