Meet the New Activities Director Mr. Robert James
I come to the Winfield District after teaching, coaching, and heading the activities department at the Silex School District for the previous 11 years. As a coach, I have 8 Final Four Appearances in various sports. In my final softball season in 2012, we won the Class 1 State Championship.
I have been married for 9 years to Kim James. I have 3 wonderful children, Lexee (9), Kenzee (6), and Trey (1). We still reside on the outskirts of Silex.
I attended Lincoln University where I received my B.S. in Physical Education. I obtained by Master’s in Secondary Administration from William Wood’s University.
I am extremely excited about heading the Activities Department at Winfield R-IV. It is a very exciting time at the Winfield District with all the improvements that are being made. The Activities Department will be very much a part of those improvements with the field renovations and upcoming sports complex.
It is a Great Day to be a Warrior!
We Need Information
Parents and guardians it is vitally important that we have the most recent information regarding your student so that we can keep you informed at all times.

So let’s end 2013 and begin 2014 by taking the time to inform the registrar or your child’s building to update this information. Kim Lake is the district registrar and can be reached at 636-566-6118 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

New Teachers To Our District
Meet Our New Assistant Superintendent, Mr. David Wehde
It is hard to believe that 39 years ago I was the Kindergarten student walking through the doors of the Primary School. I had just got off of Mrs. Ferguson’s bus and I was headed to Mrs. Gifford’s classroom. Those memories are faint, but other memories from attending Winfield High School such as the narrow halls of what is now the Intermediate School during passing time, trying to move from the north hall to the south through one single door, walking up to the gym that is now the Middle School gym rain or shine and of course the teachers, sports and activities I participated in, and mostly my friends. There is nothing like good friends from a small school.
Now I come to school every day and instead of “hanging my hat” in a locker, I hang it in Central Office. Going from student to para professional to teacher and coach to principal and now assistant superintendent has been a wonderful journey. I have met many wonderful students and now some of those students are parents and their kids are our students. I am very proud to be a part of the Winfield School District and plan to keep improving the education of our children by setting high standards and expectations, providing the staff with quality, data driven professional development, and creating a welcoming environment for old and new members of our school community.
My wife Jessica is also a Winfield graduate and we have two wonderful kids, Audrey and Mitchell. We spend our time mostly at ballparks or with family. This summer we took the train to Chicago and had a wonderful family vacation. Jessica and I also went to Kansas City this summer with friends and family for the Kenny Chesney and Eric Church concert. This summer has flown by with the transition from principal to assistant superintendent, but I am excited about my new role and continuing to put the Winfield R-IV School District “on the map.”
It Is A Great Day To Be A Warrior!
Mr. Wehde and Family
We, the staff and students in the Winfield School District, commit ourselves to working together to provide a school climate that promotes respect, responsibility, and safety in order to ensure a positive learning environment.
