West Northfield - Winkelman Elementary School Handbook

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Winkelman School! Here you will find that our teachers and staff are prepared to partner with our parents in the education of all of our students! As a team we value our rigorous curriculum, diverse population and commitment to each student as a member if our community. Our Winkelman Wildcat Way guides all that we do:

R= Respect for all
O= Ownership, making safe choices for my actions
A= Achievement - working hard to learn
R= Responsibility - knowing what is expected of me, committed to the Winkelman Wildcat Way

We adhere to and follow our school’s mission:

Winkelman School will provide quality education in which students, parents staff, and administration form a partnership to encourage lifelong learning. Students will be expected to develop and apply academic, physical, and artistic skills to their fullest potential.

Our school will enhance the emotional and social well-being of students by creating an environment which fosters responsibility, accountability, respect for others, good citizenship, and an appreciation of our diversity.

We look forward to working with you! Please use this handbook as a guide but always call our school office with any questions. Our main number is 847-729-5650.
