Principal's Corner

Welcome to Washburn Middle School

Welcome to the Washburn Middle School.  After teaching in Washburn for eleven years, I was honored to become part of the administrative team. This will be my fourth year as the high school principal and my first as the middle school principal. The Washburn School District’s mission is “to enable students to enter the global society with the knowledge, skills, habits, and attitudes required to be contributing citizens.” I will work my hardest to make sure when your child leaves Washburn they have gained the skills needed to meet the goals of our mission statement.

The community of Washburn is nestled in the heart of the Chequamegon Bay and overlooking the waters of Lake Superior.  Washburn has an exceptional combination of culture, nature, and sense of community. Washburn is known for its four seasons of recreational opportunities that please sports and outdoors enthusiasts and those who simply appreciate nature's beauty.  I welcome you to come and visit Washburn to see all that it has to offer.

We have a lot of exciting things happening in the Washburn Middle School.  The DuPont building is currently being renovated to meet the needs of the middle school.   The LRC is also being renovated and a Makerspace is being added.  The Middle School students will have access to the Aquaponics lab, as well as a high tunnel and green space.  These areas will allow students hands-on experience when applying the curriculum.  When the lab and high tunnel are running to full capacity they will be able to produce about 85-90% of fresh greens for our school’s outstanding food service program.  Washburn is taking Green and Healthy to a whole new level!

The curriculum at the Middle School offers opportunities for all learners.  From daily WINN (What I Need Now) time, to acceleration into high school classes, the middle school allows for all students to succeed.  The middle school also offers a wide variety of middle school sports and other extra-curricular activities.  Please check out the middle school website to find out more information on these opportunities.  

Washburn Middle School has a warm and inviting learning environment. Our staff truly cares about the education and well-being of each student that attends Washburn.  Washburn creates a culture that is found in very few schools today.  Washburn Middle School is the type of school every student should have a chance to attend, and I am proud to be your Middle School Principal.
