Administrator's Monthly Update

The 2019-2020 school year is off to a great start! It is so nice to have all of our staff and students back in the buildings! Not only does the start to the school year mean our buildings are full of life, but it also means changing leaves, cooler temperatures, fall sports, and budget season! Director of Business Services, Mrs. Knapp, is working on finalizing our past budget and making final decisions regarding this year’s budget. Our Annual Meeting will be held on Monday, October 21, 2019 at 7PM in the Winneconne Middle School Large Group Lecture Room. Please mark your calendars and join us.

You may have seen in last week’s Winneconne News a number of new staff members. Our Winneconne Community School District family of staff and students sure is growing. I will share enrollment numbers later in September, but our initial (un-official) numbers indicate our student population has grown from last year by approximately 100 students. 40 or so are residents and approximately 60 are open enrollment students. This makes the facility planning work of the Board of Education, Financial Planning Committee, even more interesting as the population study we completed earlier projected a resident increase of approximately 20 students by 2025. We have already doubled this number and it is the 2019-2020 school year! We will continue to monitor and report out to you official numbers later this month.

As in the past, I will use my article in the Winneconne News to report our goals and the opportunities that lie ahead. Similar to last year when I shared ten tips on how to feel more a part of your child(ren)’s learning at school, I intend to share some tips regarding building resilience. Hopefully, these tips will not only help our students but each other as well. Stay tuned!

I am committed to working with our staff, Board, and community to serve the educational needs of our community. If you ever have questions about your school district, feel free to contact me at (920) 582-5802 ext. 3141. I hope to see you at one of our many upcoming events. Thank you for your continued support of education in our communities.
