From the Cedarburg School Board

The Cedarburg School District was informed by Dr. Lamberson that he and his wife plan on relocating this summer to Minneapolis in order to be closer to their two elementary-school granddaughters. He will finish the term of his initial two-year contract, ending June 30, 2015. The School Board has been very pleased with his performance and greatly appreciates his leadership in firmly establishing Cedarburg School District as THE premier school district in the state of Wisconsin.  Board President Chris Reimer expressed that “the Board appreciates Dr. Lamberson’s vision for what education should accomplish going forward, and though we are saddened he will be leaving us, we commend him for his commitment to his family, which should always be the top priority. We will miss his leadership, and look forward to hearing about his new life in the Minneapolis area.” The Board wishes him well as he looks forward to enjoying quality time with his family. By the end of January, the School Board will finalize the search process, including a search firm and timelines, for selecting a new superintendent. Details about the search process will be posted on the district’s website.

Westlawn Receives Two National Promising Practice Awards

The Cedarburg School District was represented by Westlawn School this fall at the national convention of the Character Education Partnership in Washington DC.  Westlawn School received two national Promising Practice Awards at the convention; one for its Girls Getaway project that was designed and implemented by former Westlawn school counselor Kristen Kapler.  Fifth grade girls and their moms (or significant adult female in their life) gathered for an evening of bonding, sharing hopes and dreams for the future, relationship-building activities and just plain fun, as the girls prepare to leave the halls of Westlawn and enter the world of Webster Transitional School. The other award recognized Westlawn School's Parent Engagement Project, which builds bridges between school and home every month through hands-on activities that families do together to promote, reinforce and practice monthly character pillars.
