EL-G School District Seeking Donations to Construct New Greenhouse
As the EL-G School District began its fundraising campaign to build a new greenhouse on the high school site, the EL Lions Club stepped forth with a donation of $20,000. Al Zemlicka, EL Lion’s Club President, presented the check to Dr. Ann Buechel-Haack, District Administrator, and Michelle Arbuckle, Agri-Science teacher. The new greenhouse is planned to be a laboratory setting for integrated studies in the fields of Agri-science, biology, and the culinary arts. At this time, $50,000 has been raised for the project. Generous donations have also been received from the Hayssen Family Foundation, EL-G Education Foundation, and the EL-G FFA Alumni. For more information on the project, or if any group or individual is interesting in making a donation, contact Dr. Buechel-Haack at 876-3381. The project is being coordinated in conjunction with Steve Schmitt from Jos. Schmitt and Sons.

School and District Report Cards Released
As individual schools and as a district we did exceptionally well this year. Both the high school and middle/elementary schools rated at Exceeds Expectations and as a District we also received the Exceeds Expectations rating. The links are below for accessing information on the report cards and also for information on how all schools and districts in the state fared. If you look through the districts in the state/area, most did very well as an overwhelming number of schools met expectations or went beyond. As a district rating, we are one of two in our surrounding area that were rated as exceeding expectations, ELG and Oostburg. We take pride in our rating as we feel it reflects the efforts put in by our staff, students, parents, and community to raise the achievement of ALL students. However we also realize this in only one piece of information, and as a district our yearly scores will be subject to greater fluctuation due to our smaller student population. So while very pleased with our current results, we feel an equally valid measure of our students’ achievement is how at ELG we constantly strive to personalize our students’ instruction to meet their learning needs so they can be successful both in the classroom and beyond the walls of the school.

Agriculture and FCS Provide Farm to Table Opportunities for ELGHS Students
It has been a successful year of collaboration between Mrs. Arbuckle and Mrs. Beyer’s Agriculture classes and Mrs. Roehl’s Culinary Arts classes. For the first semester of the school year, students in Animals, Plants and Pizza class worked hard raising Tilapia in an aquaponics system. They maintained the system which had about 25 fish in it, along with 5 tomato plants and 1 pepper plant. The aquaponics system is a recirculating system that uses the water from the fish tanks to provide nutrients to the tomato and pepper plants. In mid-December the students harvested 8 fish from the system. The students worked with Mrs. Roehl’s Culinary Arts 4 class to learn how to clean and filet the fish. Then the students learned how to prepare the fish for a meal. Click here to read more.
