Preschool was started here at Winside a number of years ago to assist children going into kindergarten. At that time, the school board passed a fee for those attending preschool here in Winside at a cost of around $50.00 a week. At the November Board of Education meeting on Monday, the Board of Education looked at and discussed the need for this fee. Through a unanimous vote of the Winside Board of Education, they voted to end this fee once this semester ends (December 16, 2022). This fee by no means will affect the quality of education your child receives here at Winside. We will continue to offer the program and quality of instruction as we always have.
If you have any questions in regards to this, please contact the office at 402-286-4466.

This fall the marching band attended 2 parades. We marched in the Lion's Club Parade in Norfolk on September 24th and in the Harvest of Harmony Parade on October 1st. The weather for both parades was good, which I don't remember happening in the past. We were proudly displaying our new banner which the Scott Jacobsen and the Winside Fine Arts Boosters purchased for us. Thanks to both organizations! We did not place in either contest. Both were pretty loaded in our division. The students have worked hard and looked good this fall. We are now looking forward to focusing on concert band music. We hope you join us at the Veteran's Day presentation on Nov. 10th and our Winter concert on Dec. 12th.
