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.

Welcoming Interim Principal Kristi Ward

I am writing to share with you that Principal La Shawn Ray will be leaving Keewaydin to become an Associate Superintendent for Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS). Principal Kelly Wright will remain principal at Wenonah, and Principal Kristi Ward is being hired as the interim principal at Keewaydin for the 2019-20 school year. We recognize this will be a big change for some of you.

We are excited to welcome Principal Kristi Ward back to MPS. Principal Ward most recently served as an Equity Programming Principal for Shakopee Public Schools. Prior to that, she was a leader and teacher in schools throughout MPS for more than 22 years. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Keewaydin and is committed to supporting students, families and staff through the transition.
