We would like to thank Mrs. Judy Macauley and her friend, Gwen Wheeler, for making our flowers that we sold for Valentine’s Day look so professional. They volunteered many hours to get our flowers ready to sell. Thank you so much! We appreciate all the teachers and parents who helped with this too!

Thank you parents and students for supporting our school by purchasing flowers and candy for your valentines. We use the money that PTO makes to provide the extra things for our students. We can provide prizes for reading and math, provide some of the cost of field trips, and just provide the little extras that teachers and students need throughout the year. When you support our school, you are supporting our students! We really appreciate you!

Our 8th grade students will be taking the NAEP tests at 1 p.m. when they come back to school on Tuesday, Feb. 17. Please be rested and ready. The 5th and 8th grade students will be taking the writing test between Feb. 24 and Feb. 26. There is so much to think about and to study for! Our students are very capable and ready to do this!

Finally, we would like to thank our parents for showing up for parent conferences. It is so important to keep in touch with your child’s teacher about his/her academic progress! If you missed the conference, please schedule a time with your child’s teacher. It is not too late.

At the five week mark, there is time to improve the grade that goes down on the report card 4 weeks later. The little things can make improvements possible!


J C and Sons trash service is going well with the new changes. Wynona residents are asked to use the provided polycarts and please, do not put trash in barrels or cans. When the trash guys try to pull the bags out of barrels or cans, there is always something that snags the bag and rips it and trash goes everywhere. The polycarts are much neater and easier to empty. Thanks for all the cooperation on this effort!


Wynona lost a lady that was near and dear to everyone. Viola Fields, age 99, passed away last week. She was an active member of the Wynona First Baptist Church for many years, a friend to all who knew her! She had many, many friends and family members who will miss her. Condolences to the family and friends of Mrs Fields!


Wynona continues to have dog problems. People are turning their dogs loose at night for some reason. Neighbors do not appreciate someone’s dogs coming in their yard and making messes with trash or whatever other reason. There have been numerous complaints about this issue and several citations have been issued, and more will be issued to those who do not comply with the leash law.
