WHS SPECIAL K BASKETBALL TEAM 2016-2017
Friday was the annual HOME game for our WHS Special K Basketball Team, hosting Chisholm Life Skills Center out of Wichita. When Chisholm arrived at WHS, Wellington students provided them with a warm ovation as they passed through the cafeteria area in route to the gym! A large contingent of students, parents, grade schools, cheerleaders, the band and more were on hand for the big game - in the end it was Chisholm 59 Wellington 25 but didn't observe one frown or one unhappy player afterwards. Great game and great fun for everyone, especially the players!! Check out the pics below - congrats Wellington for representing so well - a fun day indeed!!
The "Patti Sober Memorial Taco Dinner" with ALL PROCEEDS going towards the Patti Sober Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Beginning February 20th thru March 3rd, the Wellington Police Department will join other Kansas Law Enforcement to stop what has been an epidemic for the past several years. In 2014, 34 teens lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas; 63% of those teens were NOT PROPERLY RESTRAINED.
In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement across Kansas will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than thirty years, officers have educated and warned passengers and drivers regarding the importance of using restraints while in their vehicle.
There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey the traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting or failing to buckle up.
The Wellington Police Department says, “Even one teen death is unacceptable. Please slow down, put the phone away or turn it off, and always buckle up.”
