Welcome To Winegard Elementary School!

Our goal is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe and supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make this site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. Our goal and responsibility is to help each student develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others, and the skills to become a creative independent thinker and problem solver.

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians, 

Welcome to the 20-21 school year!  It is an honor to serve as your principal and instructional leader here at Winegard Elementary.  We hope were able to stay safe and healthy this summer.  All students will start LaunchED on the first day of school, Monday August 10th.  School starts at 8:45am and ends at 3:00pm MTThF (2:00 W). Your teachers will begin reaching out to students this Friday, July 31st with details about the schedule and using devices to learn this year.  Keep your contact info updated and stay connected!

We are very excited about the new school year where students will join us on our journey to success!  Winegard is still a uniform school where students are encouraged to dress for success wearing polo shirts and slacks – even while learning from home.  Set up a separate learning space in your home where you will be able to concentrate on your lessons daily.  We appreciate our scholars being well prepared, beginning on their very first day! 

We are looking forward to our VIRTUAL Sneak Peek of the new building which will be launched from our school website at noon on Friday, August 7th.  Our annual “Meet the Teacher” event will look different this year.   Instead of meeting your teacher on campus in a classroom, we invite you to participate in our MTT DRIVE THROUGH.  You will be able to drive by to see your teacher in our new parking lot.  All visitors will remain in their car during the procession.

Mrs. Frett Bowie, our assistant principal, and I are looking forward an exciting school year.  Winegard Patriots are truly on the road to success! 

Ms. Meigan Rivera, Principal
