The mission of Lake Nokomis Community School is to empower every student to learn and grow every day. We represent diverse cultures and experiences which allows for instruction in the meaning and value of community and the importance of life long learning. We are nurturing great potential every day!
Our school community is housed on two campuses southeast of Lake Nokomis: Wenonah for Kindergarten-2nd grade, and Keewaydin for grades 3-8. We celebrate our neighborhood school culture and like to be known as a big city school with a small town heart.

The PTA has launched an online family directory to help LNCS families find contact information for one another – want to coordinate on class events, plan play dates, or get together over the summer? You’ll need to register your family to be able to use it (and for other families to see your information). The site is private for registered LNCS families only. It is NOT available to the general public.
Principal for a day participants Freya and Calvin, spent a day with their principal, Mrs. Wright at Wenonah and Mr. Ray at Keewaydin. Freya and Calvin learned what it's like to be a principal. The event was sponsored by the LNCS PTA as a silent auction package at the Valentine's Dinner and Dance.

See instructions to update your contact information or add family members for school messages. (Don’t be scared off by the long instructions. They are mostly pictures and it only takes 5 minutes! And please ignore the follow up email you will receive that asks you to verify your account again.) You will need your student’s ID number, which you can get from their bus tag or by calling their school’s office.
Keewaydin students attended a welcome back assembly the first week of schoool. Students were instructed on rights, responsibilities and expectations.
