Meet Our Principal

  • Principal Johnson

    Hello!  My name is Alisa Johnson and I'm the Principal of Dassel-Cokato Middle School.    I'm originally from Litchfield but have lived and taught in Dassel-Cokato for almost 25 years.  Besides being principal I taught 5th grade and was also the Dean of Students.

    Running a marathon is something in my "bucket list" and a fun tidbit about me, I used to be an L/DC Hockey cheerleader.  

    Every school year is a great year to be a Charger!  I look forward to seeing you in the halls and classrooms.  Please feel free to contact me at Alisa.Johnson[at]dc.k12.mn.us or by calling (320) 286-4100 Ext. 1604.

  • Dean of Students Weinandt

    Welcome to DCMS!  My name is Ryan Weinandt and I'm the Dean of Students. I oversee student attendance and discipline, student council and statewide testing.  I hope to see you in the halls but not my office. ;)  Additionally, I'm also the Middle School Activities Director.

    Have you ever seen the movie "Grumpy Old Men"?  I grew up in the same town - Wabasha, Mn.  My wife is also a teacher and together we have four children.  If you can't find me in school, I'm on the football field as I'm also the Varsity Football Coach.  It's a great day to be a Charger! 

    Again, Welcome to DCMS!  You can contact me by emailing Ryan.Weinandt[at]dc.k12.mn.us or by calling (320) 286-4100 ext. 1608.
