  • Westonka Foodies Offer Free Summer Meals

    For most kids, summer means carefree days. But for some kids, no school means wondering where their next meal is coming from. Several local organizations are teaming up this summer to make sure kids have access to healthy and nutritious meals. The Westonka Foodies from the Westonka School District will be hosting a Free Summer Meals program again this year.

  • Schools End Year With Parades, Drop-Off Days

    The final day of the school year for Westonka primary school students usually involves lots of year-end activities and excitement. Although things looked a little different this year, the excitement was still there as each school planned a special send off to summer. Students at Grandview Middle School and Mound Westonka High School also got the chance to see teachers one more time at materials drop-off days.

  • Long-time Westonka Staff Honored for Years of Service

    Due to the statewide school closure and the threat of COVID-19, the annual Westonka Public Schools Retiree and Years of Service Banquet was canceled this year. Forty-two Westonka employees would have been honored May 6 at the Lafayette Club for their years of service to the school district. Superintendent Kevin Borg and the Westonka School Board would like to recognize and thank these long-time staff for their dedicated service to Westonka Public Schools.

  • Support Your Local Schools By Becoming a Short-Call Sub

    Although it’s impossible to predict what the 2020-2021 school year will look like, Westonka Schools is anticipating that the district will need a larger pool of substitute teachers in order to operate school next fall. Therefore, Westonka is asking all community members to consider supporting their local schools by becoming a short call sub for the district.

  • School Board Applauds Student Achievements

    One of the highlights of the year for the Westonka School Board has been recognizing students from all grade levels at the May board meeting for their achievements in arts and academics. Because Minnesota will still be under a stay-at-home order with large gatherings prohibited, that event can’t happen at the May 4 virtual school board meeting. However the School Board and the district are still planning to recognize these students for their outstanding accomplishments.
