Junior High School - Home

Welcome to the Lena-Winslow Junior High School,

Our mission at Le-Win is to create and maintain a safe learning environment that will encourage, cultivate and challenge our students as they make the transition from childhood to adolescence. I am proud of our tradition of developing the whole child as we provide not only academic excellence, but also encourage opportunities to build character, strengthen leadership skills and mold good citizens. We strongly believe that our parents and community share in our enthusiasm and we promise to continue to strengthen that partnership in the future.

Students at Le-Win Junior High School can also take advantage of extra curricular activities that include being involved in Student Leadership, Paw Print Newspaper, yearbook, chorus, band, recycling club, and various athletic activities. Our Student Leadership team is very active in running fundraisers, such as Honey Buns, Candy Grams, Food Drives, Penny Wars, and Hoops for Heart.

At Le-Win, we welcome the involvement of parents and community. Please feel free to contact us should you wish to discuss any part of you child’s education or an aspect of our school. Thank you for supporting our efforts!

Magda Brown - Holocaust Survivor Talks to Le-Win 6th Graders
Mrs. Price’s 6th grade students were fortunate enough to have met Magda Brown this month. Her visit is an extension of our History chapter on West-Central Europe. She is a survivor of the Holocaust and in 1944 was a prisoner at Auschwitz- Birkenau, one of the four death camps the Nazis formed during WWII. Magda works at the Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie, IL and comes to share her story with us from year to year. Although she has an experience that is hard for many to fully understand today, there is another message she wants her audience to hear. Her mission is to education students about the Holocaust by telling stories about her experience, but more specifically to believe in the Holocaust, to not forget the Holocaust, and to “think before you hate!” More information is available below about Magda.
