Welcome to North Winn!


It has been decided that the weekly letter will now be a MONTHLY Newsletter. If there is any upcoming information though-out the month, reminder emails will be sent. Also check out this page for updates, along with lunch and activity calendars.



North Winneshiek Elementary is now both on Twitter and Facebook. Please join our communities to see what is happening at North Winn this year and take part in keeping the #NWMustangMagic alive! To find us on Twitter find @NWinnMustangs. To find us on Facebook you will search for the page North Winneshiek Elementary 2018-2019.

For both pages you will need to request access as this keeps our students safe. When you are approved, you will then be able to see the Tweets and Facebook posts.

For further information, please contact Melissa Wicklund mwicklund@n-winn.k12.ia.us, Technology Coordinator at North Winn.
