Welcome to the Winslow Junior High School Website! 

WJHS News    

In celebration of Autism Awareness month, Mr. Wood's students made shirts and a bulletin board that reminds us that each of us has great talents, abilities, and dreams.  

Recently the 6th grade homerooms had a friendly competition to see who could collect the most cans of cat food to benefit the Waterville Humane Society. The collection was a huge success with over 600 cans donated. In 3rd place was Mr. Sturtevant's homeroom, in 2nd was Mr. Hersom's homeroom, and in first place, pictured here, was Mrs. Dineen's homeroom. Mrs. Dineen's homeroom was able to take an after school trip to the shelter where they delivered the food and visited the animals. Great job everyone!

Student of the Month

Winslow JHS highlights a student each month who shows character, scholarship, citizenship, leadership, and community service.   Introducing our new students of the month!

Congratulations to the 8th grade student of the month, Nick Weiss!

Nick is creative, imaginative, generous, easy to talk to, and enthusiastic. He loves potato chips, has a great laugh, and includes others. He’s a map maker, problem solver, easy smiler, taskmaster, schedule keeper, champion of good causes and doing the right thing. He always says hello and is conscious of making good decisions. He takes pride in his school and wants to make it a better place for students and staff.  He leads by example! Nick keeps an eye to improvement, making sure that he’s doing it right and getting better all the time. Nick’s enthusiasm and smile are contagious. He is a supportive friend and takes initiative to lead a class or group discussion. He is willing to initiate ideas school wide.  He has a heart of gold. As Mr. Clark said, he "always keeps me on my toes! Is always up for a challenge and is willing to do what is best for the group. He is selfless, and always willing to share his knowledge with others. He takes pride in his work and in his performance." Congratulations, Nick!

Congratulations to the 7th grade student of the month, Cal Beckwith!

Team 7 says this student is amazingly polite, humble, friendly to everyone, a snappy dresser, hard-worker, responsible, respectful, and safe. He makes decisions based on the right thing to do rather than what is popular or what others may be doing at that time. He willing accepts challenges.  Cal grasps concepts and then applies them.  It is wonderful to see when he has a “light bulb” experience!   He is a “quiet leader” who is conscientious with his school work. He does not complain when given any task. He is willing to participate and always respectfully and thoughtfully. Congratulations, Cal!

Congratulations to the 6th grade student of the month, Lizzie Schmitt!
