  • Principal's Message

    Welcome to Winterset Elementary School!  We are excited about our year together and are looking forward to working with our students, teachers, families, and community members! Our focus is educating approximately 550 preschool through 3rd grade students.Our enthusiastic staff is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence for ALL students by practicing research-based instruction. Our curriculum framework ensures rigor and pacing to personalize learning goals for each student.

    The culture at our elementary encourages students to do their personal best in learning and develop good habits of character. As a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports school, we believe through teaching, modeling and practicing, Winterset Elementary students will show good character by demonstrating safe, kind, respectful and responsible behaviors. We also believe acknowledging and recognizing students when they demonstrate those core values will promote continued positive behavior.

    Every year brings new faces to Winterset Elementary and we continue to have excellent teachers and support staff, committed to using a collaborative approach to provide a safe and respectful learning environment that promotes and encourages growth for all learners. Our staff and students value the wonderful support of our families, the dedication of our volunteers and the resources provided by our community.

    We believe that parental involvement is crucial to student success. An old African proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” We encourage active participation and support from parents and look forward to the continued growth of our “village.” We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. Doing what is best for children is our top priority! Please stop in to meet our office staff, volunteer in the classroom or just see how you can partner in your children’s learning and growing.

    We are very proud to be a part of the Winterset Community School District and anticipating a fun and exciting school year!

    Mrs. Jennifer Berns, Winterset Elementary Principal
