Principal's Message
       Winton’s school counseling team mission is to ensure that all students are supported in their academic, career, and social/emotional development. Our school counselors provide many supports through their comprehensive guidance curricula. They provide the resources and tools needed to be college and career ready. We also implement anti-bullying curricula, conflict resolution and restorative justice practices in order to ensure a safe environment for all students. We strive to address concerns and stressors, and find the right support and community resources to decrease any barriers in student learning.           And's always a great day to be a Wildcat!
