This is a follow up to a story the KWHS News Team did earlier this year at WMS.(Original KWHS Video) Wanted you to see the final products - pretty awesome stuff! The pics are the finished product and also pics from back during the process.
The staff at WMS on Thursday, recognized their principal, Dr. Janet Doud, presenting her with their congratulations (and a cake!) for her upcoming weekend "Educators Hall of Fame" induction at Southwestern College in Winfield. A press release, earlier this week stated:
A Driver Education course will be offered this summer for students who have completed their eighth-grade year of school and who will be 14 years of age by June 3, 2019, but not yet 21 years of age by September 1, 2019.
Enrollment will be limited to the first 112 students who complete the enrollment procedure. An enrollment packet will be sent home on 4/1/19 with all Wellington Middle School 8th graders and all interested students from Wellington High School.
A few WMS students had the opportunity to lunch on Wednesday with young adult author, Susanne Lambdin! The Knights heard about what it takes to become a great writer as Susanne shared many of her experiences! Lambdin also donated ALL of her books to the WMS Library!!
Congratulations to our WMS 8th Grade Lady Knights - a group of young ladies that have lost only "2" games over the past "2" years...awesome, and even more awesome - after splitting with Clearwater during regular season, the Lady Knights got down to business Thursday at Rose Hill HS and in the 2019 PATRIOT LEAGUE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, the Lady Knights WON 36-21 and are now the League Tournament Champs!! Congratulations to Coaches Kelsey Whaley and J' Lynn Ledesma and the Lady Knights!! Wellington is proud of you!!
Shannon Smith's QUEST class at Wellington Middle School (project based learning) is presently involved with a project that focuses on building furniture from recycled materials. The recycled, rebuilt pieces will be used in the commons area for studying in small groups and mentoring.
WMS Leadership students and their sponsors, shopped at Wal*Mart on Sunday for a fellow "Knight" and "Lady Knight", both participants of the Angel Tree program. Big smiles on their faces as they spent quite a bit of time picking out some pretty cool stuff! It's great to see students caring about others as members of the leadership group do on a regular basis. Great Job!!
WMS Leadership students delivered the food items they had collected for the Thanksgiving Holiday to the Wellington Food Bank on Monday. "3" vans, driven by Luke Smith, Kristin White, and Terri Driskell, and over a dozen Knights & Lady Knights, completed the delivery for the upcoming Holiday season, (over 1400 items - and over $150 cash) - Awesome job WMS - your efforts will help put smiles on many faces during Thanksgiving and other Holiday celebrations!!
