Congratulations go out to the North Winners who are graduating from Decorah HS and Mabel HS this year.
Four years ago several NW eighth graders took part in a careers unit in their social studies class. Photos were taken of the students in that class, holding signs declaring what their ideal career would be. Take a look at what these 2016 grads were thinking then...
Guidance Councelor Iverson Scott is in charge of the kiosk at the Hatchery that promotes the Decorah Eagles' nest. His current display includes work from the North Winn preschool class. The link is below.

NW Bleacher Bench
A piece of NW history! Dan Sand, carpenter/builder and husband of former NW teacher Carole Sand, is working on a fun project. He is building Entryway Benches from materials recycled from those NW bleachers. The school has replaced the heavy wooden bleachers with much improved, easier to move bleachers. All of the wood is fir and the design would be appropriate with any decor. And the seat is twice as deep as that skinny little bench you sat on for basketball games, wrestling meets, and Homecoming Coronations!
The Entryway Bench is 26" w 25" h 17 3/4" deep--perfect for an adult. The price will be $300 for this size. If you would like to "try one on," call Dan and arrange a visit to his shop. He is willing to customize: longer, smaller, narrower? This bench is two bleacher widths deep, but could be a single. If you need a certain size to fit in your home, he can accommodate your wishes. He has a limited amount of the bleachers, so order soon!
Kids Lunch Club is a new community summer program serving up free grab and go lunches for Decorah area kids. Starting Monday June 6, Kids Lunch Club is open weekdays through the summer. Kids in need of lunch can swing on by Monday-Friday between 11:45 am -1:00 pm and pick up a sack lunch packed with a freshly prepared foods, fruits, and veggies.
Adults may volunteer to help with lunch preparation and serving.
Summer swimming lessons at the Decorah swimming pool will be held during the weeks of July 18-28. If you plan to have your child ride the NW bus to swim lessons, you need 2 separate checks. The registration form and check need to be sent directly to Decorah Park and Rec and the bus check needs to be sent to the NW office.
