The Warrior Weekly

February Board Report-Intermediate

Proud to Be A Warrior!

This is what two of our Intermediate teachers wrote about what being a Warrior means to them. This, along with messages from all our buildings, will be in the "For the Love of Lincoln" feature in the Lincoln County Journal in an upcoming addition. Our staff, students, and community truly make the Winfield School District a great place to be.



Being a warrior is not a job to take lightly. It requires an immense amount of work and in return an immense amount of reward.


The truly great thing about this district is the children in which we serve. In the past years we have increased the rigor of our instruction to meet the requirement of the Common Core Standards. Our students have been right behind us putting in the effort needed to meet and exceed the demands. Our students have become goal setters who are out to achieve their best. In addition, to the academic efforts put in by our students, they also treat both peers and staff with respect. They follow the expectations in order to make our school a great place to learn.


Not only are the students one of the many reasons Winfield is the best place to work, but the staff are amazing people as well. The staff members at Winfield are always willing to help students, teachers, and parents without hesitation. Staff members spend many hours inside and outside of school to make sure that they are providing the best education for students when they walk through our doors. They are continuously looking at data and learning the best instructional practices to apply in the classroom to meet the needs of students. Staff members are always there for each other and are continuously collaborating, sharing ideas, and providing necessary support to all students. When given a challenge, the Winfield staff pull together to overcome that challenge and are willing to do what it takes to achieve. That’s what makes Winfield a great place for any staff member to work!

Gaming Club and Clubs at the Intermediate!

The Gaming Club was set to begin on February 10th with nearly 50 students signed up! Our staff has really stepped up with volunteering to host after school activities for students. We are proud to host gaming club, Front Row math club, The Totem Pole Newspaper club, Bell choir, Choir, Read Right Run, along with Student Council, National Honor Society, and the Ultimate Warriors. Our goal is to continue to find ways to connect our school with the community and give students opportunity to participate in clubs both before, during and after school.

The Counselor's Corner

Hello Warriors!


The lesson this month has to do with the Growth Mindset (with a reminder about peer mistreatment report forms).


Basically in a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. Words used such as “I can’t do this”, “I messed up” or “I stink at math” fall into this category.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Changing the “I can’t do this” or “I stink at math” into “What am I missing?”, “I can learn from my mistakes” or “I’m going to use some of the strategies I’ve learned in Math” can drastically change the outcomes students have regarding their deficiencies.


Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can assist you and your family in any way.

Cold weather is here

With the cold weather upon us we wanted to take a moment to remind our families of the importance of proper winter attire for all of our young Warriors. Please make sure that your child comes to school dressed for the weather each day. We will continue to hold outdoor recess when possible. If you are in need of any assistance in getting a coat for any of our students please contact the office and we will assist you in making sure all of our Warriors are prepared for the cold weather ahead of us.


You can find the information below on the district website. It's bright and sunny out right now but we all know the cold weather will be here at some point.
