Wind River Elementary

 Wind River Elementary School


One of the two elementary school sites in Fremont County School District #6 is Wind River Elementary. Wind River Elementary is a PK-5 school located in Pavillion (pop. 150) and has an enrollment of 159 students (October 1st snapshot).  Other than Caucasian, the only statistically significant ethnic sub-group is Native American, which is 18% of the student population.  The socio-economic base is low, with 52% of students qualifying for free or reduced lunches. The majority of our students are bused to school. In addition to the K-5 setting, the school has an on-site preschool and a Magna award winning mobile preschool classroom. A daycare was also established in SY 2018-2019.

Wind River Elementary took on the Kids Heart Challenge and raised over $2,300. Mrs. Wadsworth’s class raised the most money out of all the other elementary classes. Mrs. Wadsworth was “Color Rush” for their class accomplishment. Everyone else that raised over $75 individually, was permitted to “Color Rush,” Mr. Hunter for their prize. Thank you to all the families, businesses, and friends that donated to the cause!
