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.
The new track project began after school was out this past Spring and as of the middle of October, the project is nearly complete. The final markings have been applied, they need to cure for a week or so and then we just await the arrival of TRACK SEASON in the Spring! (It'll be here before you know it!)
This is a picture of 3rd Hour Child Development class at WMS instructed by Vicki Hillhouse. Students shown are participating in the Flour Baby Project. They have been made to understand this is just a small simulation of actual caregiving/parenting.
The "return to school" bells were ringing across our community today as USD 353 schools opened their doors to students for the 2017-2018 school year. Those "welcoming bells" will continue to ring daily through May 22, 2018! Lots of smiles on lots of faces as friends assemble (students and faculty) and prepare for the positive challenges and rewards that lie ahead this school year and beyond.
