Although registration began rolling along as usual on July 19 at Southern Door near Brussels, families will notice a slight shift from normal at Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol schools. Both districts have major construction and reconstruction projects, which bring about some changes during this summer break.
Sevastopol public school registration will be in the basement of St. Peter and Paul Church on Aug. 10 and 11. Sevastopol’s four- and five-year-old kindergarten classes were housed in the portion of Sevastopol school that was constructed in 1998. The old kindergarten rooms are being converted to middle school classrooms. Sturgeon Bay moved its offices this summer to a trailer behind the high school near the tennis courts.
Sundown for Sunset
Sturgeon Bay held an open house at Sunset School on the evening of July 20 for any community members who wanted to visit the school one last time. Visitors were also able to pick up used toys, books and learning materials.
Schools will reopen Sept. 1 in Sturgeon Bay. This school year, Sawyer Elementary will house early-childhood through second-grade students, and Sunrise Elementary will house third through fifth grades.
Gibraltar Finds Chemistry and Physics Teacher
The Gibraltar Area School Board approved hiring Kevin Hogan as its high school chemistry and physics teacher. Hogan, who served as a long-term substitute teacher for Gibraltar during the past school year, holds licenses as an educator in science, biology, physics and chemistry.
Gibraltar administrators had to scramble to fill a position in mid-winter during the 2020-21 school year, when a chemistry and physics teacher resigned.
