WDC Public Schools

A Great Place to Learn and Grow!

218.632.2155 * Fax: 218.632.2399 * 600 Colfax Ave SW Wadena MN 56482



WDC Schools and the Wadena Police Department announced today a change to the Homecoming Parade route. The parade will now turn on DAYTON AVENUE (rather than Franklin) and finish by the Elementary school. This will give our younger students a chance to watch the parade from the close proximity of the elementary school! 

***We dusted off a parade photo from the past ... recognize any of these kids who are now in high school?
