Wellington Landings Middle School’s universal guideline, “students and teachers are respectful, responsible and resilient,” (STARRR), was the focus of activities and assemblies on Jan. 18, when the school celebrated Super STARRR Day.
Student talent was showcased in assemblies that included performances by many of the school’s performing groups. The chorus sang and the jazz band played; dancers and cheerleaders performed. Drama and debate students also participated.
Sports teams and after-school clubs were also highlighted. During assemblies, super star students were recognized for the good choices they make every day. Students walked the red carpet and shared how they demonstrate respect, responsibility and resilience.
A special presentation was made to honor officer Bob Keating, who was recently promoted to a new position as a detective with the School District Police Department.
Classroom lessons and activities focused on responsibility, encouraging students to take personal responsibility for their work, their words, their actions and their character. Students learned strategies that will ensure continued success.
