About Winborn Elementary
Winborn Elementary is known for its academic excellence, doing what's best for children as well as its warm and caring atmosphere. It opened in 1981, though originally as Williamsburg Settlement Elementary, and was renamed in honor of founding principal, Diane Winborn, after her death in 1992.
The DWE motto on the cafeteria wall states "How High I Go, How Far I See, How High I Soar, Depends On Me." This philosophy guides teachers to design and implement programs based on student needs and is the standard that inspires all students to reach the high expectations held for them.
Celebrations throughout the year honor students and their individual growth. Students' efforts and successes are recognized through the Principal's Academy, B.U.G. (Bringing Up Grades) Club, and the Principal's Discipline Award.
Parents and community members are also important to the instructional team. Support from the P.T.A., parent volunteers and business partners provide mentors for the K.E.Y.S. (Keep Encouraging Youth Toward Success) program, teacher support, campus beautification and financial resources.
