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!
