Message from the Principal

Regardless of who you ask, teachers across the country would tell you this has been the hardest year in their careers. Throughout the United States, teachers are leaving their jobs as part of the Great Resignation. However, how is it that not only has Winston Campus Jr. High has survived, but THRIVED, in this climate? OUR STAFF!

The week of May 2 - May 6 is known as NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK. I want to thank our teachers and staff for always being positive, flexible and putting our kids first! I am the luckiest person alive because I get the pleasure of doing this work besides you. You are incredibly appreciated!

Teacher Appreciation

The Winston Campus Jr. High PTA is in the process of restarting up, after a COVID hiatus. With things returning slowly back to normal, we will return to our tradition of providing treats to teachers/staff for their Appreciation Week during the week of May 2nd.

We will be accepting donations of treats or monetary donations and they can be dropped off at the home of Joan Scovic (234 N Cady) or to the school office. The drop off times at Joan’s home will be any time including evenings and over the weekend, and for school anytime between 6:35 AM - 4:00 PM. While we are open to all donations we were thinking individually packaged grab and go items: Snacks, sweet treats, granola/protein bars, beverages like teas, bubbly, etc. and then donations of gift cards for a random prize drawing.

We will be appreciating teachers all week. Please drop off by Tuesday 5/3. Thank you for your appreciation of the amazing staff at Winston Campus!

Join us for a Fiesta!

As part of our Winston Campus Jr. High Open House on Thursday, May 5th 6PM - 7PM we will have a Mexican themed FIESTA for Cinco de Mayo. We will serve light Mexican refreshments in the cafeteria. We look forward to seeing you then!

Moving District 15 Forward

We are delighted to announce that the Moving 15 Forward initiative is going on the road this spring!

Board of Education President Lisa Scuzupaj and Dr. Laurie Heinz will share the specifics of the proposal and seek feedback from stakeholders across our communities. We also will be meeting with other organizations and groups within the communities we serve.

At the presentation, you can expect to receive an overview of the Moving 15 Forward plan with a particular focus on why this comprehensive plan is focused on repairing and restoring our facilities, updating learning spaces, improving student transitions, as well as providing full-day kindergarten, enhanced educational opportunities, and the chance to learn at near-neighborhood schools. In addition, each presentation will include detailed information specific to the host school(s) that evening. All sessions will include time for questions and answers.

We urge you to attend the session dedicated to your school(s) if possible, but you are welcome to attend any session that fits your schedule.

We hope that you are able to join us in person. If you are unable to attend, please visit the Moving 15 Forward website to view the proposed plan details, videos, and a Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you have further questions at any time, we invite you to let us know via this form or email Moving15Forward@ccsd15.net. We will do our best to provide answers to your questions.

We are so pleased to be taking Moving 15 Forward on the road this spring. We value your feedback and look forward to sharing more with you about this exciting initiative.
