Proper Winter Dress and Weather Related Announcements 2018-2019

Proper Winter Dress & Weather Related Announcements 2018-2019

With the seasonal cold temperatures upon us please be sure your child is dressed appropriately, which means wearing winter coats, snow pants, boots, hats, and mittens/gloves.  The best approach is layering (coat or jacket, sweatshirt, or sweater, etc.), plus head and hand coverings.  Please do not allow your child to leave the house with exposed skin (ears, hands, legs, etc.), as this increases the chance of frostbite in extreme cold weather.  We will go outside unless the temperature is below zero (air or wind-chill).  We appreciate your support and willingness to help keep our students safe.

The South Winneshiek School District will again be using the JMC Messenger for our weather-related/emergency notifications.  We want to help ensure your family is aware of weather-related/emergency notifications from South Winneshiek.

We are asking parents to log into their JMC parent portal and go to the "parent information" section.  Please make sure that all of your phone numbers and email addresses are correct. Beside each number you need to determine if you want an email, text message, or phone call.

Finally, you need to indicate what types of notifications you want to receive i.e. emergency/weather-related, student-related or general school information announcements. Click "Save" after you have updated your information.

You can also find weather related announcements on KCRG Channel 9, KWWL Channel 7, WXOW Channel 19 La Crosse, KVIK 104.7, and KDEC 100.5.

Thank you,

Kris Einck and Jason Halverson

High School Principal's Welcome

Welcome to South Winneshiek High School

South Winneshiek is a district that includes four towns within its borders:  Spillville, Calmar, Festina, and Ossian.  We have a rich agricultural environment and an economy that has direct ties to agriculture. Manufacturing is also present in Calmar.

Because of our close proximity, South Winneshiek High School has formed a partnership with Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) which allows our students to easily take college credit classes on campus (Examples of classes taken at NICC are:  welding, construction, automotive, drafting, job seeking skills).  Additionally, several of the SW teachers teach concurrent enrollment classes which gives our students both high school and college credit for these classes (Examples of concurrent enrollment classes are:  Composition I and II, General Biology I and II, Statistics, College Algebra, Customer Service, Psych of Human Relations, Public Speaking, Intor to Psychology, Calculus I, Precalculus, Principles of Agronomy, and others).  It is not unusual for a SWHS senior to graduate in the spring with both a two year NICC diploma and a SW high school diploma.  

This past school year it was figured that the graduating class who took classes at NICC or on campus for college credit since they were eligible to take these classes saved their parents $610,456.55 in college tuition costs.

Combine this year’s savings with last year’s saving, and the savings to parents was over 1 million dollars.

South Winneshiek students are definitely academic achievers.  Our academic success is measured by various assessment tools including IA Assessments and Measures of Academic Progress.  Seventy-five to 100 percent of our students tested on the IA Assessments were proficient in the areas of math, reading, and science.  Over 90 % of our students go onto post secondary institutions.

The South Winneshiek Warriors participate in the Upper Iowa Conference made up of the following schools: Central, Clayton Ridge, Eastern Allamakee, MFL Mar Mac, North Fayette Valley, Postville, Starmont, Turkey Valley, and West Central, This is a very competitive conference and, depending on the sport, has three different classes within it for state competition.  It is very rare that a conference school is not involved and competing in the state championship tournament or event. The South Winneshiek Athletic Boosters (SWAB) support all athletics at SW.

Our Fine Arts programs have earned many division one ratings in state competitions, and we have representatives at All State which is the most elite for various activities.  The SW Musical and play are well attended each year and play to a full audience.  FAB (Fine Arts Booster) supports all of the fine arts programs at SW.

South Winn’s Vision Statement says it all:  The Vision of South Winneshiek Community School District, with shared responsibility of school, home, and community, is to provide the best teaching and learning environment while developing skills needed to foster life-long learners.

It is my hope that you will enjoy the high school side of the website.  it will be enjoyable and provide information to help you recognize what South Winn has to offer.
