Lake Nokomis Community School

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.

Families - Please View this Behavior Standards PowerPoint

Parents and guardians, you are encouraged to look at the MPS Behavior Standards PowerPoint linked below to ensure you understand the District’s discipline policy. In September all schools will be discussing this presentation with students.

If you have any questions or concerns about the manner in which the District’s discipline policies are being implemented or if you need assistance in addressing student behavioral issues, please contact (Wenonah) or (Keewaydin). We'd love your thoughts on the following questions:

  • Do we have discipline issues at our school? If so what do you think they are?
  • ​Do you think students are disciplined differently according to their race? If so, what are your experiences/thoughts about this?
  • Do you think the District needs to improve its Behavior Standards Policy? If so, what are your suggestions?
  • Other questions, comments or concerns?

Register for New LNCS Family Directory

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!

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.

Update your School Communications Preferences

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.
