Games, Vendors, and Community. Winslow Township Middle School hosted this years Community Night, to present some of Winslow’s finest clubs and allow the community to come out and enjoy their night. The NJHS, SGA, and other local businesses helped by displaying their crafts and talents to the community. The Orchestra, band and chorus performed amazing songs for that evening.

Dakota Hunter, 7th Grader here at Winslow Middle School, told us about her belonging at the Community Night. “I covered the Environmental STEM Table”, Hunter stated, “ we helped students plant seeds in small recyclable cups.” A student that also enjoyed their night stated how, “ Community Night was a great opportunity to spend time with your friends, Maya also stated, ‘

The selection of music that evening was performed by WTMS’s own Band, Orchestra, and Chorus. Each group performed a selection of two songs that serenaded the evening. The crowd enjoyed the music selections which helped get a kick start on the real reason of why the event was to take place.

The WTMS Band teacher Mr. Garonizik stated, “ I liked the selection of songs chosen, Garonizik mentioned, “ I feel that the audience liked it and the band loved playing these selections.”
The Chorus teacher Mr. McNarma said, “ I think the ensemble performed very well and the audience loved it, McNarma stated, “The first piece we performed was what I think was the strongest, because it took us more time to critique it.”

The computer design and robotics played a huge role in the Community Night vendors selection. The class designed a highly skilled robot that was able to play soccer against other robots. The coding class coded the robots to perfection, leaving fellow community members to battle friends and family in robot soccer.

The Coding and Game Design teacher stated, “The class came with some of our soccer bots to show the community,” mentioned Ms. Lepre, “ two robots were hooked up to controllers and were tested by the community in a robotic soccer game.” They worked very hard designing these robots.

This year’s Community Night was a success. Every group, vendors, and helpers made that night special for those that came out. They put up lots of hardwork and showcased some of our school’s finest clubs, to serve the community well that night.

A student that also enjoyed their night stated how, “ Community Night was a great opportunity to spend time with your friends, Maya also stated, ‘ I look forward to more nights like this.”
