Posted on 10/01/2019
Blue Ribbon AwardMr. Schroeder, Mrs. Russell, and Dr. Larson recently returned from Washington, DC where they accepted the prestigious National Blue Ribbon Award from the US Department of Education on behalf of Winneconne Middle School. "We are very proud of Winneconne Middle School, but even more proud of our entire school district and our communities who support education. Our students are learning at high levels due to strong families and a community’s belief in education. Our elementary school provides the essential learning tools, a strong base so when our students enter middle school they are able to build on what they have learned. They move on to high school where our students experience success and opportunity. Our goal in our 4K-12 system to ensure that all of our students learn at high levels so that every door is open - no barriers." Dr. Peggy Larson
