First we're told, "Experts warn that these apps are propagating at a pace that’sRead More impossible for parents to keep up with." Then we're given a list of four newer apps to get familiar with... I'm guessing I'm not the only person who sees something wrong with this. If what experts warn is true, then perhaps social scrutiny isn't the answer... perhaps it's talking with your child and making sure they know what to do / who to tell if they are being cyberbullied, and their concerns need to be taken seriously. The child also needs to be made to feel comfortable about coming forward to that/those person/people when they are being affected by cyberbullying.

The pre-school in Saukville was a very positive experience for my daughter. We voluntarily did thisRead More with the older boys even though there wasn't an official 4k program. What I saw about the time of the activation of the 4k program was how good this program was at moving these providers away from daycare and into actual learning. Without that, there were many places that were essentially glorified babysitting programs. The changes to the area pre-k places as a result of these programs has been fantastic.

And who made that possible?
Bacon & Waffles May 16, 2013 at 10:48 am
Vast amounts of living beyond our means. Failure to operate with a balanced budget. UnsustainableRead More social entitlements. Fiscal mismanagement by both parties going back about twenty years. Take your pick.

I suppose all of the wars were free, or paid for by bake sales?
Bacon & Waffles May 14, 2013 at 07:38 pm
I don't have a real problem with this, but for one exception. I really don't want to see anotherRead More article about school board members complaining about a 600K budget shortfall. At least while they are spending this sort of money.

Different "pot" of monies that are earmarked for specific things.
Bacon & Waffles August 12, 2013 at 04:47 am
Could not give a crap about accounting games. I have no problem with this program, but then don'tRead More tell me you are running a budget shortfall.

Anyone who agrees with Lyle's viewpoints should be suspended outright. Radical thinking should beRead More nipped at the bud.
Terry May 12, 2013 at 10:02 pm
No Michael. Repressing others opinions is a liberal approach. Being conservative means beingRead More better than that.

As most should already know, it should be noted that if a fight occurs both students are suspendedRead More even if one student doesn't fight back or just covers up to protect himself. While I support zero tolerance the aggressor should be suspended and if the victim is truly innocent, suspension may not be appropriate. Makes the stats somewhat unreliable.

What a great opportunity for the Port Pirates to play at the Mall of America Field in Minneapolis.Read More Good luck! I am, however, a little miffed as to why Patch would feature a great article about this and then show pictures from 2 seasons ago?
Lyssa Beyer (Editor) May 21, 2013 at 11:29 am
These are stock photos that Patch had on file. Please feel free to upload any photos you have fromRead More this year!
Terry May 2, 2013 at 10:15 pm
Sooo... there will be no other windows or glass doors in the school they could shoot out or breakRead More through? sniff sniff. I smell kick backs.
Greg May 2, 2013 at 10:59 pm
At the next meeting the city will be discussing creating a man made island 3 miles east of the city,Read More relocating the school there and renaming it Bunker Elementary.
Matthew Drollinger May 3, 2013 at 06:00 am
It's all over-reaction to recent incidents. These measures aren't going to stop someone; They'reRead More just going to make them think of a different way to do it. The method changes, and the result is the same. All this fortification is a waste of time and money. It seems that some people worry more about the less-than-lightning-strike chance that their child will be gunned down at school than they do about safety around their own home.

National math test scores continue to be disappointing. This poor trend persists in spite of newRead More texts, standardized tests with attached implied threats, or laptops in the class. At some point, maybe we should admit that math, as it is taught currently and in the recent past, seems irrelevant to a large percentage of grade school kids. Why blame a sixth grade student or teacher trapped by meaningless lessons? Teachers are frustrated. Students check out. The missing element is reality. Instead of insisting that students learn another sixteen formulae, we need to involve them in tangible life projects. And the task must be interesting. Project-oriented math engages kids. It is fun. They have a reason to learn the math they may have ignored in the standard lecture format of a class room.

Same as you with the name calling and many of your other post's. Say one thing, do another =Read More Hypocrite But you already knew that yet choose to continue.

lodes needs it to pay for that big house in Cedarburg.
Gloria May 2, 2013 at 10:46 pm
The school administration was no where to be seen other than the tall redheaded stranger known asRead More Dr. Tharp who had a pained aloof look on his face. We need administration in the Greendale School District that cares about Greendale.
Greg April 21, 2013 at 07:05 pm
Those are some impressive numbers, congrats to the Port Washington-Saukville School District forRead More doing a great job.
