The theme for this year is the power of positivity.”

Dr. Jackson believes not only will the students have excitement about the building but it will also provide a boost for staff as well

“A nice school that feels new and fresh, it definitely improves the morale and the attitude of everybody. The teachers, assistant teachers, administrators, nurses counselors and all the that serves our students have been all positive coming into the building and our students will be too,” said Dr. Jackson.

More changes are coming as more funding becomes available.

“Thankfully the legislature gave us 7 million dollars for renovation in Winona Secondary that building is very old and very much in need of renovations, so were are going back to the drawing board with a little more money to do some more major renovations at the high school,” said Dr. Jackson.

Kids and parents will be able to see the newly renovated building and meet teachers tonight and tomorrow night.

Emergency Relief funding has also made it possible for students from Kindergarten to 6th to have their school supplies provided by the district.
