Another summer vacation came to an end for Wellington students on Wednesday as they filed into class to kick off the 2018-2019 school year. Westwood Elementary School first-graders proudly marched to lunch and spoke of summer adventures. Fourth-graders at McCormick Middle School were shown their new lockers and given a tour of the building while Wellington High School students said hello to old friends and went over their class schedules.
