August 2, 2018

Dear WES Students and Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year at Windom Elementary School.  As principal, I am looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year.  Please mark your calendar for our Parent Information Night to be held on Thursday, August 23.  The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with additional sessions at 6:30 and 7:00.  We will be sending out more information at a later date.

We welcome back to WES Mrs. Rachel Ediger who will be teaching art.  She had been with us two years ago serving as a teacher aide and paraprofessional.  Mrs. Shrag, music teacher, will also be serving as our school counselor this year for a few hours each day.

I would encourage you, as a parent, to become involved in your child’s educational experience during the school year.  Not only will you enjoy watching your child grow, but he/she will be motivated and encouraged by your interest. 

In addition to our academic goals for the building, we will focus on preparing our students for the future by developing positive character traits and participating in the Gemini II School Redesign program.  This state program initiative will be exciting for students, staff, and parents as we look for the best ways to educate students and prepare them for their future.  So, climb aboard our spaceship and hold on for the ride! 

During the school year, the staff at Windom Elementary School will be available if you have questions or concerns about the education of your child.  Working together and communicating as students, parents, and teachers, I am confident that we will have a super year.


Mr. Paden
