Setting up for success

Back to school can be a difficult time for new students. It can be even more difficult for new teachers who have to navigate the trials and tribulations of a new school without the benefit of a classroom full of their peers. In the Denmark School District, newly-hired educators are provided with a "New Teacher Mentor Program" to help acclimate them to both the district and the community as a whole.


With fall now starting to be upon us, it is time for cooler temps, shorter days and changing of leaves. Another exciting part of this season is the return of a fun and exciting weekly event for all ages to enjoy--All Saints Bingo! We chatted with bingo organizer Betty Duckett for some more information on the past, present and future of this fun fundraiser.

Mr. Crawford's Prairie

Last week, we got the chance to visit with Jim Crawford to learn about his unique property northwest of the Village of Denmark. Many may not know this, but on the corner of Town Hall Road and Ronk Road in the Town of New Denmark is a large field that is reported to be the largest prairie in Brown County.

All Saints hosts Back to School Night

Last Thursday night from 4 to 6 p.m. All Saints Catholic School in Denmark opened its doors and welcomed students and their families for a special “Back to School Night”. All Saints families were welcome to enjoy a hot dog or brat dinner provided by the Home and School organization while they visited with friends, greeted their teachers and stocked up their school supplies for the year.

Downtown Denmark welcomes new (familiar) face

Last week, the downtown Denmark business community added a new, albeit familiar face to their ranks. A new sign erected on the corner of Main Street and Wisconsin Avenue signified to the community that Salm Partners would be taking over the office building formerly owned by Bank First.

Back to school at All Saints

Next week, the young people across our community will be making their way back to school for another year of learning. In last week's issue, we talked with Denmark District Administrator Luke Goral to see how this hectic time was going in our public school district.

Gridiron Glory Days

A one-of-a-kind event is taking shape for this October with a celebration of Denmark Viking Football past, present and future being its main intention.

August School Board Meeting

On Monday, August 21st, the School District of Denmark held their monthly board meeting in the high school media center (library). Although it was an uncharacteristically short meeting for the board, they still managed to discuss and act on a number of topics including renewing the district's snow removal contract for another year and the hiring of a new principal for the elementary school.

ISC World Tournament 2023

Last week was one for the history books for the Denmark community as the International Softball Congress World Tournament gripped the area with over a week of intense athletic action. For eight days, thirty six elite teams faced off in over a hundred games across three venues.

Back to school with Luke Goral

With August somehow already coming to a close, the hectic back to school season is once again inexplicably upon us. Soon, the buses will again be rolling and the classroom bells will again be ringing as the young people in our community set out on another year of education and all it entails.

OneDenmark Listening Session 2

Last Thursday, the community building organization OneDenmark hosted a second "listening session" regarding the future of the soon to be vacated Early Childhood Center (ECC). Last month, OneDenmark partnered with Brown County Library to host a similar event and, after its success, they decided to host another to better introduce themselves and their vision to the community.

Maribel August Meeting

On Monday, August 14, the Maribel Village Board held their monthly meeting at their Community Center. This meeting stood apart from others because, rather than the usual handful of community members, over a dozen concerned citizens were in attendance.

75 years of service

This week, longtime Denmark community member Norman Sengbusch observed two incredible milestones, both of which were commemorated by the American Legion at their monthly meeting. On Wednesday, August 16, the Denmark American Legion Johnson-Hershman Post #363 recognized Sengbusch for both his upcoming 97th birthday but his even more impressive 75 years as a member of the post.

Ground broken

Last Wednesday, the Denmark School District held a special celebration on the paved playground outside their elementary school.

Tournament time

Softball fever has officially enveloped the Denmark area as the International Softball Congress hosts its World Tournament on three fields across two venues. Players and fans from across the world have assembled in our community and are presently in the midst of an action-packed battle of top-notch fastpitch talent.

The witty, fun-loving anchorman

Editor’s note: This is Part III of a three-part series on Maribel resident Bill Jartz. Being a television anchorman at WBAY is just one small aspect of Jartz’s life. He’s also a farmer, auctioneer and emcee for charity events as well as the voice of Lambeau Field as the team’s gameday announcer. Parts I and II ran in the previous two issues of The Denmark News.
