Letter from the Administration Team

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!

We are thrilled to welcome students back to the building next week! We have the wonderful opportunity to start this year with a whole new administrative team. Our focus for the beginning of this year will be all about building relationships. You can expect the administration team to be highly visible and engaged with the students and their learning to a high degree. We will work hard to ensure each student is valued and feels like Winograd is a place where they belong! Please reach out to our team if you ever have any needs... we are here to serve!

We will plan to send out these newsletters on a monthly basis. We will also have Social Media that you will be able to follow to see more frequent updates and photos of learning happening in the building.
