Annette Winn Elementary is an AWESome place to work and learn. We have a diverse community of both student, adult learners, faculty, and staff. Student achievement is our primary focus. We hold high expectations for all students and staff. Students and teachers are expected to set individual goals. School wide goals are set each year to improve achievement in all academic areas.

Preparing students for the future is one of our long term goals. Technology is integrated into instruction with the use of interactive white boards, document cameras, subscription websites, video, and audio devices.

We are a community oriented school, in which our programs expand outside the school walls into our community.  We welcome community members to volunteer at our school in the form of mentoring students, as a Partner in Education (PIE), Mentors, or participating in other events such as “Real Men Read.”

Our After School Program (ASP) is for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. During this time, students are provided time to work on their homework. Information about the program is available on our website.  Our STAR Club is a Title I funded program in which students receive extra help with academics, social skills, and other activities.  This program is for 3rd through 5th grade and information can be found on our homepage.

We offer many after-school opportunities for our students, such as Chorus, AWESome News, Bucket Brigade, a Science Club, and a Step Team.  We also offer before-school activities such as Early Bird Readers, Guitar Club, Music Makers, tutoring, Junior BETA, and Student Council.

Annette Winn has a very dedicated staff, highly qualified teachers and wonderful support from our Partners in Education, Mentors, and Parents. We will continue to build a community of lifelong learners that become responsible individuals, independent thinkers, and productive citizens.
