Welcome To Our Website
Built in 1927, Inwood Elementary is proud to be part of Winter Haven’s Centennial Celebration. The school was originally built with three classrooms, and 2 teachers taught combined classes of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 5th, 6th grades. The rest of the school was comprised of an auditorium, clinic, eating area, and principal’s office. Since that time, Inwood has grown and expanded its facility to accommodate an average of 400 students (K-5) and 33 teachers. Our latest improvement – a brand new, beautiful cafeteria – was completed this past summer in time to be open for the first day of the 2012-2013 school year.
Despite great growth and advancements, Inwood Elementary is still a true neighborhood school. All of our students either walk, ride bikes, or come to school in cars, since we use no busses. As we celebrate 85 years of learning, Inwood Elementary is proud to be a vital asset to the city of Winter Haven, and we look forward to our 100th birthday!
At Inwood Elementary we believe:
- Our students can learn.
- Our students can make academic gains.
- Our students must stop and think.
- Inwood is a nurturing community.
- Our teachers provide solid support.
- Our school provides a safe and orderly environment.
- Our students benefit from educational partnerships.
BLACK HISTORY MONTH
In recognition of Black History Month, students in Ms. Barbara Moody's 2nd grade class were asked to create a commemorative stamp to honor Biddy Mason, who was born into slavery in 1818. Biddy's owners moved to California, a state which did not recognize slavery, and Biddy was able to secure her freedom. She worked as a nurse and midwife, and as a smart business woman, was able to amass a small fortune of $300,000.00. Biddy shared her fortune generously with charities and the poor, and was one of the first black women to purchase land in Los Angeles.
The students in Ms. Moody's class spent a week on this project, researching Biddy, then designing and creating their commemorative stamp. Two students in particular, Wajiha Islam and Isabella McCard, did an outstanding job with their research and artwork, as pictured below.
