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.

On Halloween night costumed ghosts and goblins will knock on doors across the U.S., asking for a treat with the threat of a trick as part of the deal.
Ever wondered why we say "trick or treat?" at Halloween. It turns out the practice draws from a range of traditions.

Other candidates included Mekenna Adams, Abby Lowe, Jenna Rausch and Jill Wiley. Other escorts included A.J. Snipes, Ian King, Austin Sears and Jaden Adams. Seniors Gracie Fink and Arlis Troutman were the child escorts for Charley Wilmoth and Reed Wellington.
It has been a busy and fun day in Crusaderville - a pep assembly at the high school, a parade and rally downtown and then a bonfire back at the high school to bring the day to a close.
The traditional DUCHESS PEP ASSEMBLY took place Thursday afternoon out at WHS - ordinarily held on game day and coronation day (Friday), this year it was on Thursday since school won't be in session Friday. Big crowd on hand to meet the Duchess Candidates and their escorts, watch them compete in a game or two...the Cheerleaders kept everyone fired up along with the Crusader Band!!
