Country Grammy Nominee @ WMS Thursday!

The 6th grade students at the Wellington Middle School were treated to a special concert on Thursday, November 16th. 

Paul Bogart, Grammy Nominee for Country Song, Country Album, American Roots Song and Gospel Song this year, performed a few of his favorite songs for the 6th grade students and staff members. 

Several of the MTSS groups wrote their very own songs during MTSS time and shared them with Paul.  The students and staff enjoyed the show and the stories Paul shared with them. 

Scholarly Knights Bring Home The Hardware!

The Pioneer League Championships were held Thursday at El Dorado MS for their PL Division's Scholar Bowl competition. 

Congratulations to our Wellington Knights who finished 2nd (7th Grade) and 3rd (8th Grade) out of 6 teams at the end of season event! You can see by the wins and losses, the KNIGHTS fared very well - congratulations again to both the 7th and 8th grade squads! Awesome job overall!!

Industrial Arts @ WHS * Hands-On & Practical

Industrial Arts is an educational program which features fabrication of objects in wood or metal using a variety of hand, power, or machine tools. A visit to Mr. Ryan Elder's classes on Wednesday at WHS found many interesting and practical projects in progress. No student encouragement is needed - when the bell rings the students get down to business. A couple of classes were building tool caddies, others worked on numerous woodwork items including tables, outdoor furniture and more.

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.
