I am excited to be a part of the Calvin School District. I have served at Ada and Holdenville school systems in a variety of administrative positions. I received my high school diploma from Asher Public Schools, where I participated in multiple activities and organizations.I received an Associates in Business at Frank Philips College in Borger Texas, a Bachelor in Science from the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha, Oklahoma, a Masters Degree in Educational Administration from East Central in Ada Oklahoma, where I am also completing a Masters in Business Management. I am married to Breanna Graham and we have a 6 year old son named Noah.
I am grateful for having the opportunity to serve the students of Calvin. Growing up in a rural area and having an agricultural background, I know the benefits that Calvin Schools can have on their students and community. We will continue to motivate and educate ALL students at a high level in order to build the necessary foundation for their individual growth. We will also strive to expose each student of Calvin to essential resources and experiences that will enhance and create a more well rounded education.
Hello, My name is Jerad Winningham. I am married with six children. This will be my 13th year in education, and my first as a head principal. My family roots in the area go back two generations with a grandmother that drove a bus route in Spaulding while she attended school in the 1920’s.
I graduated from Holdenville High School in 1998, and went on to earn an Associate's degree from Seminole State, a Bachelor’s degree in History Education, and a Master’s degree in School Administration from East Central University.
Holdenville is where I spent my first twelve years in education, wearing many hats during my tenure, teaching grades 8-12, and coaching a range of sports including basketball, track, and cross country.
My family is excited about being in Calvin, and the opportunities this community presents to its students. My hope is that I can contribute to the continued growth of those opportunities and maintain the level of commitment demonstrated by those who came before me.
Our 2017 Teacher of the Year is Mrs. Jenney Nickell, 3rd Grade Teacher. Congratulations!!!
Because all children are special and have unique talents, the mission of Calvin Public School is to provide all students with a relevant education which prepares them to be productive, successful citizens and lifelong learners.
Students are expected to act with consideration and respect for other students, staff and their property. School personnel are responsible for creating a safe, civil and respectful learning environment where students can gain the knowledge and interpersonal skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. Bullying creates a climate of fear and hostility, disrupts the educational process, inhibits the ability to learn, adversely affects student participation in educational programs and activities, has as negative effect on a school’s social environment and leads to antisocial behavior. Bullying behaviors may focus on an actual or perceived characteristic such as race, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity/expression, or other reasons related to a student’s distinguishing characteristic. Calvin Public School prohibits any and all forms of bullying by students and will not tolerate acts of retaliation for making a report of bullying. In order to maintain a safe, civil and respectful learning environment, school staff shall identify early indicators of bullying behavior and stop bullying behavior. All school staff must refer perpetrators for appropriate discipline.
