If your child did not receive their report card, they will be mailed home. Have a great summer!

Anyone interested in having their child participate in the “On The Rock Summer Program” should contact the school office at 918-846-2467. The program will begin on Thursday, June 15. On the Rock Ministries will provide transportation to and from Bartlesville every Thursday during the months of June and July. This is a great opportunity for students to meet new friends, learn study skills, ride bikes and skateboards, and take part in many other activities. There is no cost for the program.


The Town of Wynona is going to be hosting a program this summer called Feed the Kids. Several groups are sponsoring this program. The meals will be brought to the town hall once or twice a week and all kids 18 and under are invited to come and eat. They have to eat their meal on the premises. The meal will be a sandwich, fruit and a drink, or something similar. In addition to the meal, occasionally, the kids will be given extra food or prizes to take home. Anyone with children 18 years old and under who are interested in the program should contact Tennie Slone at Wynona Town Hall, 918-846-2526. And, please do so right away, as we need to get a count of how many will be participating.


Wynonans offer their condolences to the many family members and friends of Vina Cross, who passed away on May 7. She was a resident of Wynona for years before moving to Cleveland. She was a sweet lady and we will miss her.
