The 7th grade basketball team is selling WELLINGTON BASKETBALL gear to help fund a trip in January. The KNIGHTS will be traveling to watch a college game and learn about basketball at the next level. All of the clothing on the site below will say "Wellington Basketball" (FONT will be similar to "DUKES" font below) rather than Knights or Crusaders or Dukes. The team wants you to be able to wear any of the items to all events. Everything will be screen printed EXCEPT for polo shirts - those will be embroidered.
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.
Mrs. Traci Smith's 4th Hour Native American History students at Wellington Middle School have been busy painting pictographs on "buffalo hides". They have also been constructing tipis (teepees) - a very hands on and creative activity for the Knights!
Mrs. DeJarnett's 7th Grade English classes did presentations this week on GREEK MYTHOLOGY. Part of the presentations included "dressing the part"!
Check out some of their works (and looks!)

Looks like the new track behind WMS is nearer to completion...the latest layer (which appears to be the last) has been applied and looks awesome...markings will be applied at some point in the near future and there ya go...a track that will be safe and functional for many years to come.
WMS 7th grade students in Mrs. Hillhouse's Basic Sewing class have finished their first sewing project - 9 Patch Pillows!
