Home of the Mavericks!

Martin County West, a consolidated district comprised of the former
Sherburn-Dunnell, Trimont and Welcome School Districts
established in 1988.
Black and Blue -- Minnesota Rouser

A Fresh New Look
   Many families visited the elementary schools during back to school Parent/Teacher conferences after Labor Day. Parents and students frequently commented on how bright the hallways and classrooms are now and how comfortable the temperature was in the buildings on the warm summer days. These are just a few of the positive outcomes of the mechanical ventilation upgrades at Sherburn Elementary and Trimont Elementary this summer.

   In addition to climate control and better lighting, the buildings also have better indoor air quality. These factors have been shown to contribute to increases in student achievement and improvements in student and staff attendance. The projects at both elementary schools and the Jr/Sr High School will also result in increased energy savings and efficiencies in operation and maintenance.

   As you attend events at our buildings, please take a moment to notice how nice our facilities look and know that the District appreciates the support of our communities in making these upgrades to improve the learning environment for our students.

Allison Schmidt, Superintendent
