I believe the beautiful weather we’ve been having is creating positive behavior and attitudes for our students. Keep it up, students. Great job!

I’d like to give a huge shoutout to our teachers and staff, who have been covering each other’s classes (cafeteria duty, P.E. etc.) to prevent hiring a substitute. They’re going above and beyond — often times, without a planning period. Everybody steps up and does what is necessary at all times for our students. Way to go teachers and staff!

If anyone would like to volunteer, please contact the office.

The high school basketball team has been competing in a tournament in Billings this week. The high school boys team will play in Billings on Friday, Jan. 27. They will leave school at 1:30 p.m. We wish them luck and safe travels.

Elementary and junior high teams were to play in Bowring on Monday, Jan. 23, and on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at Osage Hills. We wish them luck, too.

Tri County Tech is having an open house on Thursday, Jan. 26, from 3:30-7 p.m. Any sophomores or juniors who are interested in attending there next year should participate in the open house with a parent or guardian. Doing so will earn an extra point toward the acceptance requirements.

A representative of Tri County Tech, Cheyenne, will conduct interviews with interested students on Tuesday, Feb. 7, beginning at 2:30 p.m.

Mrs. Shulanberger is inviting 10th- and 11th-grade students to a 6 p.m. meeting Monday, Jan. 30, to discuss and receive information about attending concurrent TCC classes next school year and/or Tri County Technology. Information about registering to take ACT test, applying for scholarships, grants, colleges, etc., also will be discussed. Now is the time for students to start considering those important life decisions.

Homecoming is Thursday, Feb. 2. The junior high and high school teams will play Shidler, beginning at 4:30 p.m. and the homecoming ceremonies are scheduled between the junior high and high school games. The high school girls are to play last. Please make plans to attend and support our athletes.

Please come out and support the Wynona Volunteer Fire Department on Saturday, Feb. 25, from 4-6 p.m. at the Wynona School Cafeteria. They will be serving a smoked pork sandwich with beans, potato salad, a drink and dessert for $6 a plate. The busiest time for the Fire Department is rapidly approaching and the fire department needs help with the costs of fuel, maintenance and equipment to enable them to respond to the fires of any type and provide other emergency assistance as needed. The Wynona Volunteer Firefighters certainly appreciates all of the help and support from everyone.


The Wynona Board of Trustees met on Tuesday, January 17th at the town hall. After the Board conducted regular business, they passed a resolution for a Notice of Election for the Elected Officials. The election will be held April 4. It will be for three trustees and the treasurer. The Board also discussed the Founders Day chairperson. No one has expressed any interest in the position. Teresa Montgomery came before the board and explained her position with Americorps at the Wynona Schools, where she assists elementary students with their reading skills. The Board expressed its appreciation to Teresa for all of her help. Attending the meeting was: Teresa Montgomery, Donna Swanner, Loretta Little, Della Carter, Johnnie Jo Lott, Janet Delaney and Tennie Slone.
