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, Mckayla Fortin!

Our newest student of the month is the epitome of helpfulness. She is kind, considerate, helpful, polite, on task, honest, and respectful. She will not only do what is expected of her to the best of her ability but goes out of her way to help teachers, friends, and peers.  She is selfless and always thinking of others, gets along with and is a friend to everyone, is very personable, and is always smiling and bringing positivity to everything she does. Team 8 is thrilled to announce our student of the month is 

Mckayla Fortin.

Congratulations to the staff and contributors of Winslow Junior High's first ever Literary Magazine "It's Gonna Be Lit!" The magazine was released Tuesday, June 5th and included contributions from all grades at the school, each reviewed by three staffers in order to select those for publication. We're proud of the leadership team especially (pictured here): Editor-in-Chief Steven Sloat (8), Creative Director Nick Weiss (8), Managing Editor Anna Lakey (8), and Business Manager Alyssa Spaulding (6). These founders hope the magazine will be the first of many and are looking for staffers and an advisor for next fall.  The magazine is available for circulation at the Winslow Public Library and to review in the WJHS school library. We still have issues left, so interested buyers can purchase them at the front office until they're gone ($3 for 1 or $5 for 2). We also hope to sell them at the Talent Show on June 19th.

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.

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!
