Welcome to Winneconne Elementary School where we are Learning Today and Leading Tomorrow! We have a 4K-5 building with about 740 students divided up into five classrooms at each grade level. Winneconne Elementary School is a great place to learn, grow, and have fun!
My name is Lisa Hughes, and I am the principal at Winneconne Elementary School. I taught in the Winneconne Community School District for 16 years at various grade levels (3,4,5,8) prior to becoming principal in 2007. I am fortunate to work with a dedicated team made up of teachers, dean of students, counselors, administrators, secretaries, custodians, cafeteria workers, tutors, and volunteers. Our school, in partnership with the community, provides students with numerous opportunities to learn, grow, and become productive members of society. Our school goal is focused on writing. Our students engage in writing on a daily basis; teachers provide guided instruction to help writers meet their goals. We also love reading here at WES! Our students are eager to read each day, and we enjoy sharing our favorite literature with others. Students also focus on math about one hour each day, and they learn social studies, science, and Spanish. Specialists provide instruction in music, art, and physical education. Our days are filled with learning!
Our PBIS (Positive Behavioral and Intervention Supports) motto is Practice kindness, Always show respect, and Work to do your best (PAW). When students’ actions support our PAW expectations, they earn tickets that can be used for different rewards. We also recognize two students monthly from each grade level who consistently model excellent character. These students of the month get to have pizza with the principal and popcorn with the principal (4K) and have their picture in the local paper and displayed on our bulletin board. We meet every other month as an entire student body to celebrate our successes, and we continue to reinforce our PAW expectations so we can follow the ‘Winneconne Way.’
Feel free to come and visit our elementary school. We are happy to answer questions and provide you with more information upon request.
