On behalf of the W-N School Board, I would like to welcome our students back to school for the school year. Our school may be small by those who live in large cities, but let me assure you, we are a mighty bunch of Tigers! Students enrolled compete and achieve both academically and athletically at a very high level. Students who graduate from W-N, move into the military, workforce, or into various levels of higher education, and thrive. These successes, whether they happen at the elementary level or in the high school, are the result of many factors. I believe that we have Tiger Strong students because we as a school district have worked hard to build a cohesive staff who is dedicated to student achievement. Our students work hard and are encouraged to challenge themselves to become the best they can be. None of this happens without the strong parental support our children receive at home and in school. Parents who make education a high priority instill a strong work ethic in their students, and it shows in their successes at school. Another strong factor that helps our school do its job, is the great support we receive from our community. Come to just about any evening activity at our school, and you will see people there who haven t had children in school for 40 years or more. Our senior citizens know the importance of a quality education, and support our school in many ways. Many larger schools are unable to brag about this kind of support. My challenge this year is that every student works hard and strives to exceed what it takes to just get by. Learning a strong work ethic in school will assist you through life to overcome any struggle and will lead you to a life full of successes. Parents, get behind your students and push them. Ask them daily about what they did at school, and don t accept nothing as an answer. I m wishing each and every student a rewarding year!

I want to welcome students, parents, and patrons back to another school year here at WN. Another summer has come and gone and I hope that you have found the time to spend with family and relax. In the short time that I have been a part of the WN school community I have witnessed first hand that WN is truly a family environment. One definition of family is a group of people who share common attitudes, interests, or goals. I believe that we all share the same attitudes, interests and goals concerning our school and that is the continuation of the WN Dynasty. This means that we unconditionally support our students in their academic and athletic endeavors. With that said, please make plans to attend the Back-to-School events that are scheduled. This is a great opportunity to meet with teachers, coaches, and administrators. Also, you will be provided with the information that is needed to make it a great school year. Once again, welcome back and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.

She has always been a huge supporter of the tournament and the family felt they needed to help her out. This year s proceeds brings them to a total of $38,600 raised and donated since December Give yourself a hand! Over the years, this money has been used to buy books, library furniture, display cabinets, laptops/e-readers. The school converted an unused, drab outside area into a very beautiful outdoor reading area complete with tables, benches, and beautiful landscaping all painted in school colors. It s called the Sandi Zeysing Memorial Reading Garden. This past year the money was spent on the track by adding runways, pole vault pit, shot-put and discuses areas. They also purchased side panels for the gym scoreboard. They plan on having the 6th annual event on June 23, 2017 at Shirkey Golf Course. They will be looking for 5-6 more teams, plus additional hole sponsors and donations for raffle prizes. None of this would be possible with your help, support, participation and generosity. From the Bodenhamer-Zeysing families, THANK YOU!
