Winfair Elementary is named School of Excellence

Winfair Elementary received some prestigious news Thursday.

The Windom Area School District's grades K-3 elementary school has been validated as a 2019-20 Minnesota School of Excellence by the Minnesota Elementary School Principals' Association.

The honor was awarded to Winfair Elementary for its commitment to modern teaching and learning.

Winfair Elementary Principal Jamie Frank was thrilled.

"When I heard the news, I was so proud of the staff, students and the community. This is a huge celebration for Windom!" Frank said.

The five-month application process began in October, included surveys of staff and parents and culminated with submitting a 61-page written narrative from the Winfair Leadership Team.

"We quickly learned that 'everything Winfair' appeared to be fitting the School of Excellence rubric very well, based on the standards and benchmarks required for the narrative," Frank said.

For much more on the honor, see the story in the Sept. 4 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
