Students Participate in Manufacturing Tours In the State of Wisconsin, October was Manufacturing Month. Badger High School metals and manufacturing students took part in this celebration by visiting local manufacturers Brunk Industries and PrecisionPlus. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction recognizes that manufacturing can empower a student to define their own success through the multitude of opportunities available. It is a career that requires skill, thought, and creativity. Manufacturing offers a wide range of career paths for a student to pursue - like sales, working the assembly line, carpentry, computer programming, or engineering. A career in manufacturing means more than a life filled with hard labor and little growth. Manufacturing is a high skill, high demand, high wage career with many job openings in Walworth County.

Relationship Healing

Dr. Daniel Bishop, Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Professional Counselor, Wi Awaken, Burlington, WI

Thursday, February 22, 2018 6:30-8:00p.m. Badger High School Room 607 FREE – pre-registration required BADGER COMMUNITY EDUCATION -- 4

Along with fire safety, students learned about the special clothes and equipment firefighters use for protection. They were able to tour the fire truck and hear about all the tools. The children were reminded how to get help from the fire department by calling 9-1-1, and if they are ever in a fire to yell loud so the fireman can hear them. This presentation by Dr. Bishop will share information around developing healthy relationships with your partner. Although many people have advice about relationships (and there are thousands of therapists and self-help books that are dedicated to sharing their advice and opinions), we are only beginning to collect research from these masters of relationships. As a university professor and clinical psychologist, Dr. Bishop will share experience and sound research on the tools to deepen a relationship and survive in these times of disposable relationships.

Teach Like a PIRATE Day

Enthusiasm Rampant at Eastview

Teach Like a PIRATE Day (#tlap) recently took place at Eastview Elementary School. You might ask yourself, what is Teach Like a PIRATE Day? Well, “It’s a day at Eastview where I have challenged our teachers to try something new, try something exciting to engage their kids”, said Tami Martin, Principal at Eastview. It has become an annual day at Eastview that both the students and teachers look forward to. Schools from across the country are embracing this #tlap movement that was started by New York Times best-selling author and social studies teacher Dave Burgess. In his book, “Teach Like a PIRATE,” Dave challenges educators to develop lessons for students that incorporate PIRATE- like traits — Passion, Immersion, Rapport, Ask and Analyze, Transformation, and Enthusiasm. The excitement of the day started out when Dave Burgess himself reached out through Twitter to the Eastview Eagles. “Hey this is a special shout out from the caption to the Eastview Eagles on your Teach Like a PIRATE Day. Thank you so much for the extra energy, the heart, the soul that you’re putting into making school amazing for the kids,” he said. From costumes to creative learning concepts, the feel as you walked the halls of Eastview was pure excitement. Classes throughout the building were dissecting


Students at Eastview Elementary School dissecting their reading for text features. their reading for text features in their medical masks and gloves, doing pumpkin math, and learning the art of beekeeping from a real beekeeper - just to name a few of the special activities. The teachers of Eastview took their normally dynamic and effective teaching methods to a new level.

Up for the Challenge at Lake Geneva Middle School

The teams then had 18 minutes to plan and build a freestanding structure as tall as possible that would support their marshmallow on the top. Some of the teams were more successful than others, but all of the teams had a blast making their marshmallow skyscrapers.

Contextual Learning in Geometry and Construction Contextual learning and hands-on applications are just a few of the innovative ways career and technical education can help students improve their core academic skills. A new program at Badger High School, Geometry and Construction, was adopted this year for those purposes. Instructors Ryan Bouzek, Technology Education, and AJ Curtis, Math, are excited for the opportunity to help students improve their math skills and gain career skills through this new class. Students taking the Geometry and Construction course will receive both a math credit and an elective construction (technology education) credit. This course is designed to give geometry students real world applications, but also to help students who plan on pursuing construction related careers. “We have had students in the past who have come back to visit who expressed their regrets of not paying enough attention in their math classes because it would have come in handy multiple times in their current career,” Bouzek said. That realization sparked him to try to bring the class to Badger. The instructors trained through Contextual Learning Concepts in preparation for kick off this fall with 17 students enrolled. They are looking to build projects including sheds, playhouses and gazebos. Members of the community may contact them through the Badger office at 262-348-2000. BADGER COMMUNITY EDUCATION -- 16

6:30-8:30PM $15.00

Look younger, healthier and more vibrant by knowing your color season! Do you wonder why some outfits make you feel “blah” and others elicit tons of compliments? It’s probably the color of the garment. Color can enhance or detract from your natural good looks. It can be aging or make you look years younger! There are many myths and fallacies on how to choose your right colors. You cannot find your colors by looking at your eyes! Neither is it possible to know by holding up silver and gold jewelry. The only true way to know your correct colors is through a professional Color Analysis. A professional color analysis will give you a broad spectrum of “correct” colors to choose from. You will instantly see how the wrong colors make you look tired, lifeless and old and the right colors make a dramatic difference immediately. How we look is affected not only by our makeup and wardrobe colors, but also those that surround us in our décor. This class will give you an education on the colors in our world and how to use them to your best advantage as well as the psychology behind color. EACH PARTICIPANT WILL RECEIVE A FULL COLOR ANALYSIS BY A CERTIFIED IMAGE CONSULTANT, A $350 VALUE. YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE A COLOR CARD FOR YOUR CORRECT COLOR FAMILY.

Human beings are part of the natural order and change is inherent in the human condition. In a perfect world, changing would come easily but in the real world, “stuff” happens that prevents humans from being, thinking, and doing what we want, what’s good for us, and what gives us joy. That “stuff” gets incorporated in the mind before 7 years old and goes on auto-pilot after. Therefore, we can’t change when the subconscious programming dictates otherwise, negative, or self-destructive messages. How to change this programming is what this show is about.
