Wadena-Deer Creek School custodian Mel Pulju (left) and Elementary Head Custodian Kevin LaBarre hang up a banner on the school's front entrance wall to let the community know that Wadena-Deer Creek Schools will start school on Sept. 7. The school is in the process of finalizing locations for the 7-12 grade students.
WDC relies on sense of hope, fighting spirit
Wadena-Deer Creek Schools' mascot is the Wolverine -- a ferocious, small animal known for its tenacity and fighting spirit. Wolverines are remarkably strong and oftentimes, in adversity, will take on an animal much larger than themselves.
Adopting the Wolverine spirit, WDC school staff is not letting the powerful June 17 tornadoes that ripped through their high school, school grounds and bus garage get the best of them.
