8th Grade Savants Taste Gold - Again!

With the WMS Scholars Bowl season winding down, the 7th and 8th grade Knights road tripped to Goddard MS on Tuesday with grand results! Our 8th graders, for the 3rd time this season grabbed the gold, defeating host Goddard, Ark City, Haysville and Valley Center. The 7th graders fared well too, finishing 3rd in the field of 5.

Congrats to both squads and good luck this Thursday in El Dorado at the Pioneer League Tournament which will conclude the Fall 2017 scholars bowl season.

WHS Seniors Attend KU Honors Banquet in Wichita

The KU Honors Banquet, formerly held at WHS for all Sumner County schools each Fall, moved to Wichita North HS this year. The event is sponsored annually by the KU Alumni Association and honors the TOP 10% from area schools. Pictured are the Wellington Seniors that were in attendance at the event Thursday evening in Wichita. Congratulations Crusaders on your academic successes at WHS - way to represent!

WHS Senior Marisa Black Selected For Honor Band - Again!

On Saturday Nov. 4, several Wellington students auditioned for the Kansas Music Educators South Central District Honor Band.

WHS Senior Marisa Black was selected to be a member of this group. Of the approximately 50 flute students who auditioned, she placed third chair out of 12 that were eventually selected. This is her second year to be chosen for this honor, and she is now eligible to audition for the State Honor Band. Last year Marisa was also selected for this group.

Grab 'n Go Breakfast @ WMS!

WMS students are enjoying a new portable breakfast as part of a drive to increase participation in the breakfast program. 

Due to the location of the breakfast downstairs in the cafeteria, not as many students perhaps were participating that might otherwise. So now, students can get a packed breakfast when entering the building through the front doors and can sit with their friends in the halls and eat.  Breakfasts are served from 7:30 until class time.
