Klint Willert SuperintendentHello Pipestone Area Schools community,

It is truly an honor and delight to welcome you to the Pipestone Area Schools.  As the new interim superintendent for the Pipestone Area Schools, I am excited to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! On behalf of all of the staff and the Pipestone Area Schools school board, I want to share how excited we are to welcome all learners back to school for the upcoming school year.

As the Superintendent, I am committed to the outstanding work in the district as we serve the learners and broader community of the Pipestone Area Schools.  As a team, we are committed to partnering with the broader community, the area businesses, the parents, families, and learners to achieve our school district mission to “Inspire life-long learners, build character, and prepare learners for their future.”  This commitment is consistent with the district vision of “Working together to provide educational excellence and support our students for their future.”  As we continue to experience increased changes and technological advances in our world, it is increasingly important we commit to educational excellence by ensuring each student is a critical thinker, problem solver, and life long learner for their future success. 

Throughout this year, I look forward to meeting with many groups, staff members, students, community members, and business leaders to listen and learn about the strengths of the Pipestone Area Schools along with the opportunities we have for improvement and growth in the district.  I look forward to working alongside our dedicated team of educators and support staff along with the school leaders and the school board to support the highest levels of achievement and personal growth for each and every learner who attends Pipestone Area Schools. 

I want to personally share my gratitude and appreciation to the members of the Pipestone Area Schools for the support and commitment to our youth as we launch the new school year.  I truly believe that working together, we can be on point in Arrow Nation as we help each learner realize their potential.  Through an unwavering commitment to collaboration and teamwork, we can work together for educational excellence in the weeks and months to come.  Again, I am truly honored by this opportunity to serve as your school superintendent.  If you have comments, suggestions, or wish to learn more about the Pipestone Area Schools and the outstanding programs and opportunities provided by the district, feel free to call the district office at 507-562-6068 or through email at klint.willert@pas.k12.mn.us

In closing I want to say, “It is a GREAT day to be an Arrow!”  Have a TERRIFIC school year!
