2000: 2001, June 28 - Winfield Elementary School Closes
After 78 years in operation, Winfield Elementary School closed as a school on June 28, 2001. After the entire student body sang a song out on the front lawn, with Principal Jodi Nelson on guitar, a dozen doves were released and did a half circle over the school.
The building was put to use housing a dance studio, the Boys and Girls Club and the food bank.
