Wynona Elementary students are officially finished with state testing. The high school sophomores will finish up the English/Language Arts next week.

I am very proud of our students and teachers, as they have all worked hard. Great job!

The junior high and high school had softball games against Shidler on Monday, and the high school team will compete in districts Thursday at Covington. First game is to start at noon.

First- through sixth-graders participated in an assembly about snakes, spiders and ticks Monday afternoon.

The Hominy OCIC will conduct kindergarten screening on Thursday, April 20. Please call the office (at 918-846-2467) to schedule an appointment.

American Heritage Bank representatives will visit with our third- and fourth-graders about the importance of savings accounts on Tuesday, April 25, at 2:30 p.m.

Prom is Friday, April 28. Students will be announced at 5:30 p.m. after walking the “Red Carpet.” At 6 p.m., the bus leaves for Broken Arrow’s Rose Event Center, site of the prom. All Wynona students will be admitted for free. Dates who are not Wynona students will be charged $10. Please turn permission forms in at the office. All guests need to be preapproved.

Each student receives one free photo, but additional photos cost $5. (A variety of props and backgrounds will be available.) Snacks and drinks are going to be provided during the prom.

Monday, Barnsdall Flower Shop was having “Wynona High School Prom Bar” from 5-8 p.m. During that time, students could take their dresses/tuxedoes to the shop and choose flowers, ribbons, beads, etc., for their corsages. The items are to be delivered to the school on the day of the prom.

Eighth-grade students are selling Amish Jams to finance a trip to Frontier City on Friday, May 5.

I would like to thank everyone for purchasing cookie dough and nuts from our students. We greatly appreciate your support of our school, students and teachers.

I am excited to announce we have hired Mr. Brant Tevebaugh as a half-day principal/half-day teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. We are looking forward to having him!



The Wynona Volunteer Fire Department received a $1,000 donation from Enbridge. Brent Rush of Enbridge came to Wynona Town Hall on Wednesday, April 5, to present a check in that amount to Town Clerk Tennie Slone. The money will be used to buy radios for the department.

Brent Rush came back last week with a $1,000 grant for Police Department computer upgrades. Wynona residents are grateful to Enbridge for all the help. We truly appreciate it.
