In a news release on June 16, 2017, the Manitoba Government announced the process to build a new K-8 school in Winkler. The following is the news release from the province:
• Principal Garth Doerksen, joined by Vice Principal Jacqui Kusnick provided a picture walk of how Emerado has grown over the 11 years since it has opened, and some of the highlights of the 10-year anniversary celebrations.
