Welcome to South Winn Middle School

Principal's Welcome



Welcome to South Winneshiek Elementary and Middle School.  Our school maintains high expectations within a personal setting.  Our school serves students Early Childhood through Grade 8, in our excellent facility in Ossian, Iowa.  Our goals are to maintain low class sizes and to provide direct instruction that reflects research-based best practices.  We focus on having rigor and relevance in our curriculum while building relationships with students, parents, and the community.

Our school is placing attention and focus on raising student achievement to meet all the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements.  We are beginning to align our curriculum with the State of Iowa’s Core Curriculum and we continue our professional development
efforts to help each child to be challenged.    


Please feel free to visit or inquire for more information. 

You may call us at 563-532-9365. 

Thank you again for your support and interest.

MathCounts Participants 2019

MathCounts is a group of 7th and 8th grade students that participated in a math competition at Upper Iowa on Friday, January 25th. The competition consists of four components.  The first component is an individual test with 30 problem solving questions.  The second component, my favorite, is 8 questions presented in pairs.  After student responses are collected for each pair of questions, the answers are shared.  The third component is a set of 10 questions that may be answered as a team of 4 students.  The final countdown round is the last component and only involves the top 10 students in the first two parts of the competition.  

Thank you to Mrs. Franzen for taking our students.

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
