Building Character and RelationSHIPS

Madison Elementary started new groups for boys and girls in grades 4 to 6 called the League of Gentlemen and League of Ladies. The group teaches students how to greet people, problem-solve, interact with others, be a caring individual, get involved in your community and more. 
 
The Leagues have focused this year on a community approach - delivering holiday gift bags to our neighbors, making thank cards to those who made an impact on their lives, and learning how to connect with others and be better citizens and friends. Congrats to Madison staff and students for showing how to be better citizens and friends!

Retired Biff Hansen Still Active in Schools

The Herald Times Reporter did a great feature story on retired teacher and principal Paul "Biff" Hansen. Thank you, Biff, for your continued commitment to our youth and community!

MANITOWOC - Paul “Biff” Hansen may be a retired Manitowoc teacher, but he hasn’t left the classroom behind.

Hansen closed his chapter as an assistant principal at Lincoln High School at the end of the 2015-16 school year after nearly 40 years as a Manitowoc educator. But he still spends plenty of time at the high school as a volunteer — serving as the voice of the P.A. system during sports events, coaching basketball and more, or reading with kids during the school day.

Hansen has other interests as well. He's been part of the Out*A*Time rock 'n' roll band for many years and has been involved in city and Manitowoc County politics. But education is his first love.

Lincoln Theatre Presents "A Year with Frog and Toad" Feb. 7-9

A hit on Broadway, "A Year with Frog and Toad" was nominated for Three Tony Awards including Best Musical. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, this whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled reasons.

Waking from hibernation in the spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. "A Year with Frog and Toad" tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

Show times:

Thursday, Feb. 7 @ 6:30 pm

Friday, Feb. 8 @ 7:00 pm

Saturday, Feb. 9 @ 2:00 pm
