A Message from Mr. Rutten

I am thrilled to welcome you to Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary. As your principal, I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and engaging learning environment for all of our students.

Our dedicated team of teachers and staff are passionate about helping your child grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We believe that every child has unique talents and abilities, and we strive to create a learning environment that fosters creativity, curiosity, and a love of learning.

We also recognize the important role that families play in a child's education. We encourage you to stay involved in your child's learning journey by attending school events, volunteering in the classroom, and communicating regularly with your child's teacher.

Together, we can create a strong partnership that supports your child's success. I am excited to work with you and your child, and I look forward to seeing all of the amazing things they will accomplish.
