Wisconsin DPI District Report Card


November 18, 2016 - Winneconne

The Winneconne Community School District released today that it has achieved the ranking of Significantly Exceeds Expectations on the State Report Cards. Their announcement comes on the heels of the public release of all results for Wisconsin public school districts by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI).

Credit for the high results goes to students, staff focus and family support.

According to Garth Larson, Winneconne's Director of Learning, there is one main initiative the district focuses on. "Our focus is on student learning. "There is a big difference between focusing on teaching and focusing on learning," said Garth Larson. "We stay focused on student learning." District Administrator Peggy Larson said that the District's overall score of 83.3 earned the district its label as significantly exceeding expectations by the State of Wisconsin. This is the highest ranking that a District could get, and Winneconne Community School District is the only district in the Fox River Valley area that achieved this level. She attributes Winneconne's success first to the students, who deserve the credit for their achievement, she said. She also credits the district's sustained a focus on key areas; community and parental support of student learning; and highly engaged and motivated teachers and staff.

Garth Larson shared the district has been working on four focal points for several years, including district-wide literacy, educator effectiveness, grading and reporting, and professional learning communities. "We have building wide goals in these areas, we have professional development, and we focus on less and try to do it really, really well," said Garth Larson.

Peggy Larson said that these types of results are not possible, without the support of staff and community. "Families want us to do really well, and they are willing to do their part to help us do that," said Peggy Larson. "We have incredible community support, and staff feels it. It really helps."

Welcome to Winneconne Middle school, where we are “learning today and leading tomorrow.” I am Todd Schroeder and it is an honor and privilege to serve the kids, staff and community as the principal at Winneconne Middle School. I have been in education for over 25 years. I taught middle school math for 17 years before becoming the high school assistant principal and athletic director for 6 years. I am excited to be a part of WMS family and I look forward to making memories together as we help build our students' future.

The middle school years are an exciting transitional period between elementary and high school experiences. Middle schools are grounded on the concept of recognizing and addressing the diverse characteristics and needs of our young people. Middle school years provide opportunities to explore many different interests while expanding skills and discovering personal strengths.

Winneconne Middle School was recognized as a school that “Exceeds Expectations” on the last DPI school report card. It is my belief that we have a special group of teachers and support staff working here at Winneconne Middle School. The core class teachers (math, language arts, science, social studies) teachers have standards and learning goals that we hold ourselves accountable for, we aim to make sure all of our learners are learning at high levels. During common planning, the teachers review learning data in order to hold themselves and all of their students accountable to rigorous standards. The staff is committed to working together as teams to ask questions that focus on quality learning opportunities and accountability, aiming for results that reflect continuous improvement. The middle school continues to value improving our students writing as our building level student learning goal for 2016/2017. Every student will complete writing prompt; it is scored twice against a rubric by teachers to ensure reliability. This data is then used by our teachers to create student learning objectives. We will recreate this process in the spring determine if we have met our student learning goals. I believe we will!

Our students work hard and are very busy. We have a 7 period day that includes Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Reading for all students. WMS students have PE every other day and a choice of several high interest encore courses. We are a 1 to 1 technology school. This means that all middle school students will receive a chromebook of their own to use throughout the school year.

It is the expectation of the Winneconne Middle School community that students and staff act responsibly and treat each other with fairness, respect, honesty, and kindness. “That is the “Winneconne Way!’  With the ongoing support and involvement of our parents and communities, we embrace the many opportunities to learn, teach, and appreciate the unique gifts that we can offer to one another.

We encourage questions and for concerns that arise throughout the school year, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, our office staff, or me personally. I can be contacted at 582-5800 ext 2124 or email at

I hope that each student will have an enjoyable, rewarding, and positive experience at Winneconne Middle School.
