How does a heart grow?
BY Kit Potelle
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

Congratulations to Josh Veilleux, who was chosen by WHS staff as Student of the Month for April.
Josh Veilleux Student of Month for April
Josh was nominated for Citizenship, Volunteerism, Team Work and Leadership.

Josh Veilleux has shown outstanding dedication to raising the profile of the performing arts at Winslow High School.  Although you may know him from his performance as The Cat in the Hat this year, Josh has acted, worked technical crews, and done art and design work for 11 school plays since he joined drama as a freshman.  He is tireless and enthusiastic about making our productions the very best they can be, whether that means learning to dance a time step (reluctantly but gamely), designing a t-shirt, or simply making the cast and crew laugh when everyone is stressed and tired during tech week.  Josh is a leader who is unafraid to speak up against discrimination and prejudice when he hears it.  Several times I have witnessed him voice concerns and offer alternatives when discriminatory language is used in his presence.  When challenged, he will stand his ground and defend his position politely but firmly.

This school year he took the initiative to inquire about the possibility of establishing a charter for the International Thespian Society at Winslow High School.  He undertook all research himself and appeared before the Performing Arts Boosters to propose the charter.  It is thanks to Josh’s efforts that Winslow now has its own chapter of this honor society for the dramatic arts.

Josh’s contributions to Winslow Drama have shown a forward-thinking mindset.  His actions will benefit students for years to come.

Most recently, Josh went to the State House to speak to legislators about the importance of arts in education.   He took the time to compile data and to interview his classmates about their experiences in the arts and went to Augusta to argue for the importance of maintaining arts education in public schools.
