On December 2nd, the Wells Ogunquit CSD School Committee recognized several students and staff for achievement in sports and color guard.

Recognized were three members of the WHS Color Guard Team, Adrienne Perron, Anna Libby, Mallory Cashman and Coach Bailey Smith. The four traveled to New York City to participate in the 2015 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “They are being recognized for representing the Wells-Ogunquit Community School District in a national setting,” said School Committee Chair Helena Ackerson. “Their dedication to their guard program and to the school community is greatly appreciated.”

Wells Elementary School Physical Education teacher Kathy Calo was recognized for her year-after-year coordination of the school’s annual Jump-A-Thon which, in 29 years, has raised over $200,000 for Jump Rope for Heart and heart research. “Congratulations to Kathy who has been named as this year’s Jump Rope for Heart Coordinator of the Year based upon her leadership, enthusiasm and effort,” said Ackerson.
