A Long Overdue Thank-you!

I would like to thank all of the parents, students, staff, colleagues from other schools, and other members of the greater Winslow community for the overwhelming love and support showered on me at the April 6 Spaghetti Supper and beyond. Oh my! There have been so many times recently when I have found myself without words to adequately express how grateful I am for the myriad ways people have come forward to offer me help, as well as their healing thoughts and prayers. I may have grown up in a fairly well-off town, I may have come “from away”, but this is where I feel truly blessed and at home. My heart is full. Thank you!

Kaylee was chosen as the 8th grade student of the month because she is an engaged learner who always asks questions, a hard worker, and a thoughtful, genuine, and friendly student. Kaylee is also actively involved in school and civic minded, participating in activities such as Civil Rights Team and Odyssey of the Mind.  Kaylee's humor and love of puns is appreciated by teachers and peers alike. Congratulations, Kaylee! 

7th Grade: Ethan Loubier 

Ethan was chosen as the 7th grade student of the month because he is a distinguished student. Seventh grade teachers describe him by saying, "what sets this particular student apart goes beyond the quality of his school work and delves into the quality of his character.  He shows a maturity far beyond his years, being able to combine a relaxed, humorous personality with a focus unique to the most dedicated of students.  Ethan demonstrates compassion to others, a terrific sense of humor, and renders a calming, positive influence on students and staff.  It is with great pleasure that we award this student of the month to Ethan Loubier." Congratulations, Ethan!

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:
