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 87 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.
The Book Fair is Coming!!
Save your pennies and dimes, and plan on visiting the Book Fair in the Inwood Media Center, which will run Monday, Sept. 15 through Friday, Sept. 19. The display will be open daily during regular school hours, and will also be open on Thursday, the 18th, from 5 pm until 8 pm. That day is our Annual Title One Meeting and Open House, so take a few extra minutes to drop by the Media Center and purchase some of the great books we'll have for sale. Books make wonderful gifts for children, gifts that will keep giving for many years!
Please, no bills over $20, and checks and charge/debit cards will be accepted.
Mark Tuesday, Sept. 30, on your calendar, and plan on eating supper at Sonny's Bar-B-Que, for Inwood School Spirit Night! A portion of the proceeds from that evening will be donated back to the school, so come out for a great meal and a worthy cause!!
Our sincere thanks to Mr. Olin Hart, of Hart's Glass Inc. in Winter Haven, for donating and installing the glass cover for our antique quilt. The quilt was made in 1983, and is proudly displayed in the entrance foyer of our school. Thank you so much, we appreciate your generosity!!
