Bolder Named Next Tomahawk Middle School Principal
Published on 05/13/2022 under News The Tomahawk School District didn't have to look far to find their next middle school principal. Following their meeting Tuesday, the Tomahawk School District announced that Stacey Bolder has been named the next principal at Tomahawk Middle School. Bolder currently serves as associate principal at Tomahawk High School, a post she's held since 2017. Prior to her career in administration, Bolder was a physical education and health teacher at Tomahawk Middle School. Bolder said, "The middle school is a very special place to me because I spent a large amount of my teaching career in that building, and I am very proud to once again be part of such a caring and hardworking staff." She added, "The 6th-8th grade years are such an important piece of helping our students feel a sense of connectedness, belonging, and the exploration of academic and career opportunities. Bolder is filling a vacancy that will be created this summer when current middle school principal Wendell Quesinberry becomes district administrator. Both of those transitions will take place on July 1.

Rhinelander Students Collecting Pennies to Purchase Water Filters for Africa
Published on 05/13/2022 under News As part of a lesson plan on water, Rhinelander third graders are raising money to help provide water filters for developing countries. Among the topics in the lesson are water access, demand, and pollution. While water is readily available in the Northwoods, the students are learning about a lack of access in some African nations. That includes children, their own age, having to walk long distances to get a supply of water. To help become part of the solution, the students launched a penny war this week. They've partnered with a local resident Mike Prom. He is director of Wise Intentional Leadership Development. Through his connections in several African nations (Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Rwanda), they'll be able to purchase and provide water filter units. \\For approximately $75 each, these filter systems have the ability to clean enough water for everyone in a village the size of Rhinelander for approximately 250 days. Students at Central, Crescent, Northwoods Community and Pelican are all participating. Each school has set a goal of $400. The Penny War will run through the end of next week.

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive This Weekend
Published on 05/13/2022 under News The largest single day food drive in the country is taking place this weekend, and postal workers are looking forward to a little extra work tomorrow. It's time once again for the Stamp Out Hunger, organized by the Association of Letter Carriers in cooperation with the US Postal Service. The traditional letter carrier food drive returns this year after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In each of the previous two years it was replaced by the NALC's donor drive, in which those wishing to help made online monetary donations to local food pantries. Earlier this week, carriers here in Tomahawk distributed collection bags throughout the community which will be collected on Saturday. Bags can be filled with non-perishable food items and placed in or on your mailbox for collection on Saturday. While most non-perishable food items are welcome some of the 'most wanted' include: canned soup, vegetables, meats like tuna or chicken, along with boxed pasta, rice, or cereal. Please do not put out rusty or unlabeled cans, expired or opened items; and perishable or homemade items.
