Welcome to Wellborn Middle School - Home of the Warhawks!
What does it mean to build something? At first, it is easy to see the construction. Sure, there are the materials: the brick, the mortar, the concrete, the tiles, the tractors, the machinery. But what may not be so easy to see are the ideas and the hopes and the expectations of success that will come from within that construction zone.
It is from within this construction zone that our school mascot came to be.
As a Wellborn Warhawk, our goal is to channel the qualities that a hawk possesses. This animal is revered across cultures for its gift of vision and intensity. Hawks, by nature, are observant and capable of seeing the bigger picture along with minute details. They represent physical, emotional, and mental focus as they traverse the skies.
As a Wellborn Warhawk, we possess these qualities. We have an intensity to pursue our futures with the intention of success. We are observant and see the here and now, while also keeping our futures in perspective. We have the mental toughness to push through challenges and learn from our failures. We know who we are right now and who we want to become because we have a place where we all belong.
While Wellborn Middle School is currently in the process of being built physically, the foundation of empathy, tolerance, hard work, and effort are already being established. At Wellborn Middle School, there will be expectations to be met and accountability for meeting those expectations - that’s how we all improve. There will be grace and kindness given to model how to treat those who cross our paths. There will be excitement and encouragement for our successes and failures as we dare greatly. Coming to WMS is an opportunity to be part of a school community that values and challenges each and every person who enters our building because “you belong here!”
When you see our school motto, hear the voice of Mrs. Mishler or your counselor or your favorite teacher whispering it to you. “You belong here!” Every brick counts just like every student counts! Every window counts just like every teacher counts! Every tile counts just like every parent counts! We are in this school building together constructing the foundation for all of our futures. “You belong here!”
