A reminder that online evaluations for students and parents who participated in winter sports can be found under the Athletics section of our website. Your feedback is very important to us.  Please also see the Athletics page for other updates on meeting and events. 



Did you know that Ms. Brackett's students went to a robotics competition?  The robotics tournament involves two parts: First they need to program the robot to do tasks related to a natural disaster (the theme of the tournament) and second, they need to find a problem that involves being prepared, surviving, or rebuilding and then create a solution to that problem.  After they come up with the solution, they must share that solution with experts in the field and create a presentation of their work for the tournament.  Check out her 7th (The Wolverines) & 8th grade (The Excelerators) students competing below:

Thank you to everyone who brought in donations for the Waterville Animal Shelter!

A great big "Thank You" to our 6th and 7th graders who participated in the King Arthur Life Skills Bread Baking Program.  The students attended an assembly and learned the science behind bread baking and recieved their own baking kit.  Over the weekend, the students baked two loaves of bread, kept one, and returned one to school to be donated.  This was not a mandatory project, so imagine our surprise when we received an astounding 170 loaves of bread on Monday.  We donated half the loaves to the Homeless Shelter and the other half to the Evening Sandwich Program.  The spirit of giving is alive and well at Winslow Jr. High School!  






Thank you to all of the students, families, community members, and staff who contributed to the turkey basket drive!  See final pictures of our turkey basket collection below!
