OHS Potential Athletic Scam Warning

OCONOMOWOC, WI- June 29, 2018. The Oconomowoc Area School District (OASD) is pleased to announce the district has been awarded $160,000.00 through the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) School Safety Grant program, administered by the DOJ's Office of School Safety. The OASD will use this funding to improve school safety at every school in the district.

Superintendent Dr. Roger Rindo stated, "The State has unquestionably put financial support behind its rhetoric about school safety, and we are very grateful for this level of support from the Department of Justice. These grant dollars will enhance the work we have already done to improve safety measures in our schools. Work on these projects will get underway immediately."

The OASD partnered with local law enforcement agencies throughout the grant development process to ensure that proposed funding, protocols, and school safety plans are effective and provide the safest learning environments possible for all staff and students.

OASD Director of Buildings and Grounds Greg Maroo added, "The District is excited to implement additional safety improvements at our schools. We will be work towards completion of the projects as soon as possible. With this grant approval, we will be able to add safety measures that were prioritized in collaboration with local law enforcement agencies. OASD has made many key safety improvements over the last decade and continually look for additional ways to ensure the safety of our students and staff."

Grant dollars through the DOJ are divided into two categories: the Primary School Safety Grant and Advanced School Safety Grant. DOJ's Primary School Safety Grants focus on standard improvements to schools, including door locks and hardening school entryways. The Advanced School Safety Grants are awarded to schools that have met minimum security thresholds. OASD improvements will include such items as:

  • Improving radio communication for district staff and first responders
  • Hardening all exterior doors of district schools by installing safety film on entrance windows
  • Upgrading classroom door locks at district schools

In addition to making upgrades to school buildings, one of the School Safety Grant prerequisites is providing training in Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and Trauma-Informed Care/Trauma Sensitive Schools (TIC/TSS). Training for these specific prerequisites will take place for staff during OASD's 2018-19 school year.


Over the past three months, since 2017 Wisconsin Act 143 was signed into law, the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) has consulted with numerous stakeholders in the fields of education, security, law enforcement, and mental health.

In addition to helping keep schools safe from violent attacks, DOJ will be closely monitoring for behavior that could affect a school's ability to pay market rates for products like door locks and shatter-resistant film for glass. DOJ will review and investigate any instances of inappropriate pricing behavior, so the benefits of the program are not reduced.

Following is a list of organizations who met with DOJ staff, and consulted on the creation of the Office of School Safety and the grant process and criteria.

●Association of Wisconsin School Administrators

●Badger State Sheriffs Association

●CESA 4, 7, 10

We are pleased to announce that Oconomowoc High School will be offering Girls Hockey as a WIAA sport starting with the 2018-19 school year. Girls Hockey is a winter sport and we will be participating in the Arrowhead High School Co-op, which also includes Sussex Hamilton High School and Kettle Moraine High School. All practices and home matches will be played at the Mullett Center which is located on the Arrowhead High School campus.

OHS Girls playing hockey will have their OHS Athletic Fee of $150.00 waived but will be required to purchase their own equipment and pay the Arrowhead hockey fee. Student Athletes will also be required to provide their own transportation to the Mullet Center for practices and games. A bus will be provided for all away matches and that bus will always leave from the Mullett Center.

We were just notified that the current Head Coach, Andy Smith, recently resigned to pursue another job opportunity out of state. Once more information is available we will share it with our student athletes and parents.

Fundamentals of Grammar & Conventions


What's the difference between the statements, “Eats Shoots and Leaves” and “Eats, Shoots and Leaves?”  Sixth-grade students at Silver Lake Intermediate School have been learning that comma placement can completely change the meaning of a sentence.  Commas Make a Difference is one of the lessons taught as an interactive read-aloud utilizing the book, Eats, Shoots & Leaves, as part of The Fundamentals of Grammar and Conventions. The Fundamentals of Grammar and Conventions is a new supplemental program, introduced this year for grades K-8 in the Oconomowoc Area School District (OASD).  The Fundamentals of Grammar and Conventions provides authentic opportunities for students to deepen understanding of how language and grammar impact written and oral communication.  "Fundamentals provides consistency in grammar and language usage instruction and resources across grades K-8," said Sarah Lang, OASD K-8 Curriculum Coordinator.  


The units in The Fundamentals of Grammar and Conventions are based on the premise that teaching and modeling grammar and conventions in context will help our students become better at effectively using language to convey and understand the message.  Structures such as mini-lessons, interactive read-aloud, and the use of mentor and shared texts, mirror structures already utilized in the Reader's and Writer's Workshop curriculum.


To prepare for the first year of implementation, literacy leaders from across the OASD targeted The Fundamentals of Grammar and Conventions lessons to align with our current literacy units of study. Silver Lake Intermediate sixth-grade teachers agree the program has been enjoyable and beneficial to their students, helping them to recognize the grammar and language usage in their reading.  One student even exclaimed during class, "Wait, this doesn't feel like grammar, it feels just like a reading lesson."  The sixth-grade teachers also noted that it’s important the lessons and instruction don’t feel isolated, and that they are able to segment the learning and incorporate it into the routine of literacy workshops. 


In the second year of implementation, teachers will focus on refining alignment to the literacy units of study and continue to support intentional grammar "moves" to enhance each student’s writing craft.




Silver Lake Intermediate students and staff demonstrated The Fundamentals of Grammar mini-lessons, interactive read-aloud, and the use of mentor and shared text, for the OASD School Board members at the March 20, School Board meeting.



Silver Lake Intermediate School teachers and students presented The Fundamentals of Grammar and Conventions, to the OASD School Board at their Tuesday, March 20, meeting.
