A note from Scott Bleck, District Administrator
Supporting Shared Values
Shared values are commonly known as fundamental beliefs, concepts, and principles that underlie the culture of an organization, and which guide the decisions and behavior of its employees, management, and members. When building shared values, participants influence each other by openly communicating various viewpoints. At times it can be challenging to express one's shared values and invite potential criticism. With that in mind, school communities are pushed to the forefront to actively demonstrate shared values that reflect community support in their decision-making process.  

School communities are continually faced with making moral and ethical decisions. To empower school communities to reach their potential, they must be willing to identify shared values as a common practice, not a challenge. The ability to demonstrate shared values will ultimately allow opportunities for "Success" to grow within educational environments. The School District of New London strives to attain "Success For All Students" by embracing shared core values. 

  • Excellence--we hold ourselves accountable to continuously strive for excellence. We never stop learning in an effort to innovate and improve programs, skills and services.  
  • Dedication--we are driven to ensure success for all students, dedicated in our advocacy, principled in our approach and responsible in our actions.
  • Integrity--we seek to be honest and have the ethical and moral courage to do the right thing in all settings and situations as stewards of the resources entrusted to us. 
  • Respect--we value the strengths, experiences and perspectives of others. We accept individual differences and embrace diversity with compassion and empathy.  
  • Passion--our passion provides us the determination, perseverance and sense of resolve to act on behalf of children.  

We believe in having a positive and optimistic attitude about everything we do because we realize that this inspires others to have the same attitude.
Community Connections
A Sugar Bush second grader started her own fundraiser for local veterans . Her hope was to make sure veterans have what they need during the holidays.

Lincoln students representing the Bulldogs of Character delivered Bulldog cutout cookies from Bult's Bakery to The Chamber for their holiday party.

NLHS BEST (Bringing Exceptional Students Together) club members decorated a tree at Thern Farm . They had fun gluing the ribbons together. Each ribbon brings awareness to specific diseases or disabilities while also showing support for those with these conditions.
The Bulldogs of Character also decorated a tree at Thern Farm . District students and staff created a tree to represent the Bulldog character traits and showcased the school colors.
Lincoln Elementary students joined their teachers Will Johnson and Judy Jadin to ring bells to raise money for the Salvation Army. The students and staff rang bells and sang holiday carols at Festival Foods in New London.

Lincoln Elementary Student Council represented the Bulldogs of Character by ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. They had so much fun helping out our community!

Holiday wishes of laughter and cheer from Sugar Bush Elementary !
Intermediate / Middle
Throughout the month of December, Intermediate/Middle School students were busy in the school library making holiday crafts during recess.
Seventh grade students went the extra degree by teaming up with Longevity to donate over 1,000 items to the Salvation Army . Students brought in a variety of items from hair care products to cleaning supplies to help out local families in need. They formed a large assembly line to load the items for the Salvation Army.
Seventh grade students from Mrs. Berglund's social studies class did some caroling for their classmates and staff to spread holiday cheer before the break.
"Don we now our Holiday Sweaters..." NLHS staff joined the student body in sporting their most festive (some may say ugly) holiday sweaters .
The NLHS BEST (Bringing Exceptional Students Together) club had their annual cookie decorating and dance party .
Students visited the NLHS Library to make "book page" holiday ornaments from old books removed from the library's circulation. The library provided the materials and step-by-step instructions for students to craft their unique holiday decorations.
The NLHS Marching Band participated in the 49th annual Appleton Downtown Holiday Parade last week. The NLHS Dance Team marched with them .
