This young lady is an amazing student, worker, and friend to others.

She rises to the challenge in many ways! She is conscientious, methodical, meticulous, and intelligent, doing her best day in and day out. She’s a problem solver, able to modify an original plan to accommodate new ideas -- keeping her focus even in a chaotic environment.  More often than not, she takes her thinking beyond the required answer. She is also sweet, kind, thoughtful, caring, and helpful. A quiet leader who presents a calm, clear voice when working with her teammates.  She has a unique sense of humor that, if you’re lucky enough to witness and be a part of, you won’t soon forget. Lastly, she is wonderfully creative and artistic. Congratulations, Alaina!

Please consider taking the BrightBytes survey that the MLTI program requires. This information is helpful in regards to our school using this program. According to BrightBytes, the survey should  only takes around 10 minutes. Thank you! 

In February 2017, the 7th and 8th grade students at the Winslow Jr. High will be asked to take an anonymous health survey.  The data from this survey is used at the school, county, and state levels.  It supports grant funding, assessment of student needs, and the design and evaluation of health related programs.  You will receive more information on this survey closer to the time of survey administration and will have the opportunity to review its contents.  You have the choice of whether or not your child will take this survey.  Your child will also have the option of whether or not to participate in the survey on the day it is given.  If you have any questions regarding the content of the survey, please call Mrs. Couturier, School Counselor, at 872-1973.

Laptops Replacing iPads at the Junior High: Changes are coming this summer to the State of Maine MLTI program that provides devices for 7th and 8th grade students.  The Department of
Education decided to replace their devices a year early and offer schools the choice of iPads or laptops for the next cycle of the MLTI program.  Our Junior High chose laptops for students next year, so students will be receiving 11 inch MacBook Airs.  Unfortunately, our
schools are not being given the option to purchase the current MLTI devices.  You can find more information on the MLTI program at  www.mlti.org


Before you head out for school supplies, here are our supply lists for each grade:
