We need to take the time to thank Dana Bargstadt, Nate Behmer, Ryan Brogren, Jon Jaeger, Carmie Marotz, John Thies, and all former members of the Winside Board of Education, for their dedication of their time and efforts for the success of our students, staff, and community.
As required by the State of Nebraska, the following information is being made available to the public.
Winside Public School hosted their annual Food Drive from December 6th to the 16th. The Food Drive is sponsored by the high school Youth Leadership Council (YLC) and the Elementary Student Council. The elementary school (PreK-6th grades) set their goal at 800 items, while junior high and high school’s (7th-12th grades) goal was 801 items. Items were counted on the morning of December 16th, and both buildings were excited to learn they surpassed their goals with over 950 items per building! However, donations continued to arrive throughout the day, and even more were donated at the junior high and high school winter concert on Monday, December 19th. While exact count was lost, each building collected over 1,000 items, bringing the overall total to over 2,000 items! Collected items were distributed to the Wayne County Food Pantry, the Winside Backpack Program, and Wayne’s Haven House.
All students earned a 10:00 late start as they return from the holidays on January 3rd, 2017. Additionally, elementary students earned a movie and popcorn. The sophomore class collected the most items in the junior high and high school and also earned a movie and popcorn.

Connor Lemke-Elznic was accepted to the Nebraska Wesleyan Honor Band on Timpani. This elite group is selected from students across Nebraska and from schools of all classes. He will be attending the festival on with the final concert on Saturday at .
In an effort to make our students more comfortable at school we have added a permit to provide medication at school. This will allow a certified medication staff member to provide the listed medications to students when they need them. If you would like your child to be provided these medications when they have a minor ailment please fill out the form provided and return it to school.
It's a HEALTHY day to be a WILDCAT!
