Student Represents Wisconsin at National SkillsUSA Competition

 

During the week of June 23rd, Lincoln High School student Daniel Weinfurter traveled to Kansas City, Missouri to attend the SkillsUSA 50th National Conference. He earned his way to the National level by placing first at the Wisconsin State SkillsUSA competition, which was held in Madison earlier this year. Dan competed at the National Convention representing not only Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School, but also the state of Wisconsin in the Carpentry competition. After two days of briefings and written exams, Dan tested his technical abilities against 44 other competitors from across the nation to determine who had the best skills and knowledge. He was required to apply Math skills as he calculated lengths, angles, and pitches of roof and wall framing. After all the sawdust cleared, Dan Weinfurter came out as the seventh best carpenter in the nation! Read more...


Parent Representative Needed

 

A three-year term of service is available for a Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools parent who is interested in serving on the District's Council for Instructional Improvement (CII). The CII meets to discuss and make recommendations related to curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Three parent representatives serve on the CII along with teachers, administrators, and a Board of Education member

If you have any questions or are interested in serving on the CII, contact Kathi Stebbins-Hintz, Director of Instruction, at 715-424-6721, x-1053, or kathi.stebbins@wrps.net, by Friday, September 19. The Board of Education will appoint the new parent representative to the CII at the October Educational Services Committee meeting.


On-Line Verification Requirement For Parents/Guardians

 

Online Verification is now open! Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools uses Online Verification to have the most up-to-date information possible on our enrolled students – especially address and telephone number changes, health conditions and concerns, as well as emergency contact information. All of this information which is updated and verified by parents/guardians each school year is critical in the event that we need to contact someone in an emergency situation, or if a child becomes ill or injured while at school.

Online Verification, which you can get to by accessing your Family Access account, is not an option, it is a requirement.  If you haven’t completed the process by the time you and your student visit for orientation or open house, you can take care of this requirement when you arrive at your student(s) school for welcome back/orientation activities.  A brochure explaining how to access your account to perform the Online Verification requirement for your student(s) can be found by clicking here.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance in keeping us up to date on these critical pieces of information about your student.


Former Student Gives Back

 

It is always a pleasure to have our former students come back to share a little bit of themselves with current staff and students. Washington Elementary alum Vince Biegel was a strong force on the Lincoln High School football team before graduating in 2012. He is now playing successfully for the Wisconsin Badgers. Vince came back to visit the students at Washington on the last day of school to autograph yearbooks and play some kickball. He had a few kindergarten fans that never left his side!


Summer Feeding Program Offered

 

The Summer Food Service Program, which is funded by the USDA and administered by Wisconsin Department of Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer when free or reduced-price lunches are unavailable. Free meals will be made available to any child 18 years and under. Persons over 18 years of age, who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year, may also receive free meals.
