The students at Wellington Landings Middle School are raising money for ill children in Shands hospital in Gainesville, by participating in the Move-A-Thon.  The move-a thon is a 3.5-hour event where students listen to music, have fun with themed activities, and eat food. It will be Friday, December 14 from 6- 9:30 PM, in the gym at Wellington Landings Middle School. The price of the ticket is $10 and can be purchased in the cafeteria in the morning and during lunch. If someone can not attend the event they could always donate. The people who buy a ticket will also have no collar day on Friday. 

SGAs at WLMS and Wellington High School have been working together to find a smoother transition for middle school students going to high school. The Government Associations at WLMS and WHS have worked very hard to announce Move-A-Thon on fliers, posters, and the morning announcements. The WHS students act as leaders and mentors, and WLMS SGA are hosting and planning the event. Wellington High School hosts a Dance Marathon to supply for this cause. WLMS decided to also contribute by hosting the Move-A-Thon.

There will be a beach party form 6-7, the carnival from 7-7:30, sports from 7:30-8:30, rave from 8:30-9:15 and a big reveal from 9:15-9:30. Last year, WLMS was able to raise $3,450.  Let’s try to raise even more money than last year for the children who need it. Were all looking forward to making the Move-A-Thon an annual event.
