The agenda for the night is as follows:

  • 6:00-6:45    Brief presentation in the Lang Auditorium.  Topics will include ACT, Aspire, and MAPs testing preparation and new/existing course descriptions.

  • 6:45-8:00    Question and answer sessions with each department in the Media Center for the high school and the commons for middle school.  This will be held cafeteria style which will allow parents and students the opportunity to converse with multiple teachers.

  • All teachers will be present during both nights.

We are looking forward to the Course, Career, and Curriculum Nights  and providing our parents and students information next year.  If you have any questions, please contact me at thencsik@csd.k12.wi.us or 920-533-4811.

 
 

Formula High School Project

On Saturday, Oct. 17th, Several students from Campbellsport High school traveled to US Air Raceway in Bonduel, Wisconsin to test and learn about the Formula High School Project. Formula High School is a program that gives students real life simulation of what it takes to build, modify, setup, and race a performance oriented vehicle. Students spend the year fabricating and improving the frame and components based on their observations at this event in preparation for the next event, typically held at Road America in Elkhart Lake. The car itself is based on the Formula First series and is setup with a Briggs 16hp V-Twin for a power source. The students have to work together as a support team to keep the car on the track and continually are making adjustments and improvements. For more information on Formula High school, visit the website; www.formulahighschool.com, or contact Mr. Joe Janicek; jjanicek@csd.k12.wi.us
 

Campbellsport High School Receives Prestigious W!SE Blue Star School Recognition for Second Year in a Row

Campbellsport High School received the Working in Support of Education (W!SE) Blue Star School recognition for the second year in a row.  Personal Finance is a required course for graduation and all Personal Finance students take the W!SE Financial Literacy Certification Test at the end of the course.  A school must have a 75% passing rate to receive the Blue Star Honor and Campbellsport High School had an 84% passing rate for the 2014-15 school year.  

“I am so proud of our Personal Finance students and their accomplishment,” states Ms. Katie Peterson, Campbellsport Middle-High School Business Education teacher.  “The certification test is not easy and the fact that so many students worked hard and became Certified Financially Literate is just a testament to how many great kids we have attending CHS.  I’m confident that our students are graduating with the tools they need to make informed and intelligent financial decisions.”

Campbellsport High School would like to congratulate the students who took the W!SE Financial Literacy certification test. We would also like to recognize the teachers in our Business Education Department for giving these students the vital knowledge about personal finance and the tools they need to become financially capable young adults.

Campbellsport High School Placed on the College Board's 5th Annual APĀ® District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Student Access and Success

 

Campbellsport High School is one of 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for increasing access to AP course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. 2014 is a milestone year for the AP District Honor Roll, and more districts are achieving this objective than ever before. Reaching these goals indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for the opportunity of AP. Since 2012, Campbellsport High School has increased the number of students participating in AP while improving the number of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.

Out of the 547 schools nationwide that were recognized, Campbellsport High School was one of only 27 high schools in the state of Wisconsin honored.  Campbellsport High School was also the only school in Fond Du Lac County, the Eastern Wisconsin Conference, and the new East Central Conference to be named on the 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll.  “Our AP Equity and Excellence numbers show that roughly 19% of last year’s graduating class scored a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam at any point during their high school career,” states Campbellsport Middle-High School Principal Todd Hencsik.  “Last year we also broke school records in following areas: Number of AP students (64), number of AP exams taken (81), and number of AP students with scores of 3 or higher (45).  Congratulations to our staff and students for their outstanding work in achieving this prestigious honor.”

Inclusion on the 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2012 to 2014, looking across 34 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.

Districts must:

  • Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts;

  • Increase or maintain the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students; and

  • Improve performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2014 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2012, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70% of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

 

Campbellsport High School Receives Prestigious W!SE Blue Star School Recognition

Campbellsport High School received the Working in Support of Education (W!SE) Blue Star School recognition for the 2013-14 school year.  Each of students in our Personal Finance course took the W!SE Financial Literacy certification test last year.  To be recognized as a Blue Star School, 75% or higher of the students must pass the test and have either a majority of students on a given grade level take the test or have the students who took the test achieve an average of 80% or higher.  This is no small feat, as Campbellsport was one of only ten schools in Wisconsin to achieve Blue Star School status.

"I am extremely proud of our students who took the test and received the certification,” states Ms. Katie Peterson, Campbellsport Business Education teacher.   “Financial literacy is a very important skill for everyone to have.  This news gives me the confidence that CHS graduates are leaving high school financially literate and will continue to make smart financial decisions as they move forward beyond high school."

Campbellsport High School would like to congratulate the students who took the W!SE Financial Literacy certification test.   We would also like to recognize the teachers in our Business Education Department for giving these students the vital knowledge about personal finance and the tools they need to become financially capable young adults.
