|Winslow's JMG Class Chooses Camp Capella For $1000 Grant
Every year the Unity Foundation gives each JMG Program $1,000 to choose a grant recipient in Maine. The students need to learn the process of grant giving, such as, researching Non-profits that fit The Unity Foundations criteria (must be helping youth in some way and must stay in Maine), send out RFP's and choose whom they feel deserves the money. The intention is to spark interest in Philanthropy at a young age and give them the opportunity to make a difference. This is WInslow High School JMG's 3rd year giving away $1,000.
Chanel 5 News covered the presentation. See the news spot by clicking here.
Winslow High School Honored with the Spirit of America Award
At the WHS Renaissance assembly on Wednesday, May 18, 2011, Chair of the Winslow Town Council Gerald Saint Amand and Winslow Town Manager Michael Heavener presented the school with a framed copy of a Town Council of Winslow resolution stating, " Winslow High School Students, Administration, and Staff are hereby recognized for their great achievements and honors that they have brought upon this community with Winslow's 2011 Spirit of America Award." The award is being accepted by Principal, Doug Carville.
The Renaissance Program is Updated
In an effort to update the Renaissance program, the criteria for awards has been enhanced, in order to recognize students of all abilities for their achievements. There are new classes of awards and students receiving the awards will be invited with the nominating teacher and administration to a breakfast in their honor. Teachers, staff, administrators or community members can nominate a student to be recognized.
“On the Road to Success” Award

“Highest Achiever” Award
This award goes to a student who is performing at the highest level in the class.
“Craftsperson” Award (This will be decided by MMTC staff)

This is a student who shows outstanding character in the face of adversity or goes out of their way to support a positive school climate.
This is a student who has performed service above self within the high school, or in the community.

Stephen G. Bowen, Captain, USN Speaks to WHS Students
His theme was that his hard work opened many opportunities
Captain Bowen was born in 1964 in Cohasset Massachusetts. He received an Electrical Engineering Degree from US Naval Academy and an Ocean Engineering degree from MIT. During his early Navy career his main interest was with submarines. He became the First Executive Officer of the Pre-Commissioning Unit Virginia (SSN 774). He was the first submarine officer selected by NASA as a mission specialist in 2000. He trained at Johnson Space Center. In 2008, he was one of the crew on the STS-126 Endeavour, NASA fourth shuttle flight, whose main mission was to expand the living quarters of the space station. This 16 day mission was highlighted by three space walks by Captain Bowen, 250 earth orbits and over 6 million miles traveled. Captain Bowen is the recipient of many service awards. He is pictured here with his former classmate, WHS Math teacher, Andy Cyr.
Parent Portal is Ready to be Accessed.
Activation codes were sent to parents to access their child's or children's grades, attendance, etc. Click here for the general information to use Infinite Campus data base with student information. Be certain to go to the WHS homepage to find the correct link for parent log-on. Students received information and passwords to access their grades on Infinite Campus the end of November.
High school students, teachers and administrators received a Macbook. Winslow is leasing the computers from the state for four years, 2009-2013. The program is part of the MLTI program. The computers will have open source and Apple software and a 4 year warranty from Apple.
Winslow Schools and AOS92 adopt new School Information System
The parent portal will open in the end of January.
The Maine Department of Education (MDOE) selected “Infinite Campus” to replace its existing Maine Education Data Management System (MEDMS), a statewide student and staff data collection and reporting system.”Infinite campus” is a comprehensive, web-based system that streamlines administrative processes and provides secure, real-time access to school data. It provides the Department and School Units with the capability to collect, analyze and report school and student data to meet State and Federal requirements. “Infinite Campus” will give Maine the ability to assign unique student IDs and collect data in a flexible manner. Susan Gendron, Maine Commissioner of Education, said "Infinite Campus is an important component in Maine's Statewide Longitudinal Data System that will provide timely and accurate data to support decisions to improve student achievement."
The main advantages are: the state can consolidate staff and student information across all school systems and it will be reported in standard form. Also, the Maine Department of Education is hosting “Infinite Campus District Edition” at a remote site at no cost to our AOS.
Winslow Schools will use “Infinite Campus” as its School Information Service (SIS) with information going directly to the state. For Winslow Schools it replaces Web2School, the SIS used by Union 52. Administrators, secretaries, teachers and technicians have been training all summer to get the program in place for the start of school.
Parents will only notice some differences in the format of student grade and attendance reports. The parent grade reporting web portal is now available.
For more information, call an administrator, secretary or guidance person at any Winslow School.
