"Inside those gym walls"
Inside those gym walls, there is confidence
That if bottled could sell for millions
There’s no question of “if” or “maybe” or “not sure”
But it’s “when” and “of course” and “I know”
Smiles come easy in the basketball hours
With emotions swelling high from within
Shared enthusiasm tugs at hearts and showcases hope
Waiting on moments of perseverance and glimmers of brilliance
Inside those gym walls, there is dedication to carry on
Scrapping and digging for each and every achievement
Knowing that a miss is not a fail but a reminder
Those accomplishments aren’t always easy
Without a try, there can be no success
And one shot is simply not enough
Expectations of triumph weigh on all shoulders
But pride and determination are strong enough to hold it all
Inside those gym walls, there are lessons
Lessons that can’t be taught – but are learned
Tenacity, willpower, and bravery
Endurance, strength, and resolve
Recklessness, courage, and happiness
Sportsmanship, integrity, and honor
All exist inside those gym walls

Winslow High School Goes to College
Each year students from Mr. Smith's World Geography classes construct a map of Europe. Students research a topic and create a key to display their data. The maps are then used to learn about the region.

How a heart does grow?
It might have been the first practice we had
Those nervous smiles edged with uncertainty
Turning genuine when unclear became clear
That realization of what this was about
Perhaps it was the warm-up circle
That night before the first game
Seeing many become one
Shouts of "I believe" ringing in the gym
Maybe it was the first basket that was scored
Just seconds into our start
Taking some of the anxious butterflies away
Giving a hint of excitement to come Possibly it was the pointing to the crowd
The airplanes down the court
The fist bumps and high fives
Or the celebrations for any score
Was it the fans that came in?
Wondering what the buzz was all forThe community praising that "new team"
Sharing joy and cheers with all there
I wonder if it was the off court stuff?
The recognitions in the hall
The standing ovations at assemblies
When the names weren't known beforeI think it was the confidence
That could be seen growing among them all
Heads held a little higher
Standing taller than before
So when words escape me
And I try to explain what this did for me
All I can think of is this and much more
And realize... It's not hard to explain how a heart grows

Students of the Month
The following students were chosen for their acceptance of others, citizenship, character, and volunteerism: Dan Crouse, Susan Grant, Levi Magee, Djimon Santos, Hope Winkin, Natalie Greene, Bryce Hillier, Lydia Santos, and Cameron Fredette. These are the members of the Unified Basketball team who come to practice and games and give of themselves without asking or expecting anything in return. They have all been given a lot of responsibility, and there are high expectations on these student athletes in regards to being positive role models and citizens. These students have incredible patience and have giving and caring hearts. Our unified team would not be the same without them!
