Kennedy Cardinals Hold Halloween Parade!

The Kennedy Cardinals, with the help of local law enforcement, had a nice Halloween Parade in front of their school on Woodlawn. The path took them across Woodlawn so traffic was curtailed for a short while during the parade. The kids appreciated everyone's assistance with all of that, including the volunteers from the City, the High School, and other places who helped with the event as well, handing out candy along the parade route to the costumed students as they passed by. Big smiles on a lot of faces.

WHS/WMS FFA Students Compete in Horse Judging Event

On October 16 The Wellington FFA Chapter went to Kingman, Kansas to compete in the South Central District Horse Judging Career Development Event.  The students learned about how to judge horses based on their confirmation, and also based on how they perform being ridden in various performance events in Agriculture Education classes.  They took the skills they learned and applied them in a real world setting by judging six classes of horses and giving oral reasons. (Oral reasons are a short explanation of why they placed the horses the way they did).
