Campus Life

Campus life activities provide opportunities for parents and students to engage in vibrant campus community. Participating in activities, organizations, and events allows students to connect with peers who share similar interests, fostering a sense of belonging and friendship.

Participating in campus activities can also have a positive impact on academic performance. Studies have shown that involved students tend to have higher levels of motivation, engagement, and overall satisfaction with their school experience. Engaging in campus life provides a healthy balance between academics and extracurricular involvement, leading to improved well-being in students.

  • Let’s GO Wellmont Warriors! In the month of September, Homecoming Spirits Weeks kick off our competitive season. K-6th grade tribes of students and parents compete at our afterschool field day to start us off. 7-12th tribes build on their points, competing on scavenger hunts, missions, and other activities to outsmart our school nemesis, the Spunky Monkey, who inevitably always steals our beloved school shield! Celebrations and competitions culminate at our 7-12th grade family beach Warrior Games competition. Tribes scour the beach for our missing school shield while giving one last push to put their tribal points over the top! Winning tribe names are placed on the back of our school shield, an ode to every year’s winners, and are able to be viewed in the school awards showcase.

Fall comes to life with food trucks, bouncy houses, game booths, face-painting, arts and crafts, and lots of family fun. Come join us for our Fall Festival and help us welcome Fall to our campus! 

Wellmont Academy students enjoy a spectacular luncheon of turkey, green beans, mashed potatoes, and Thanksgiving fair. Indoor games of cornhole and pin-the-tail on the turkey help us remember that first Thanksgiving as we give thanks to God our amazing country and pray for his continued blessing. 

Enjoy an evening of music as you listen and watch our elementary students bring Christmas praise. We are thankful for the birth of Jesus, and this is our way of telling him thank you, and blessing our families with a wonderful evening of music. Refreshments are served at the tail end of the evening for donations. 

The Scripps National Spelling Bee is one of the most prestigious and widely recognized spelling bees in the country, attracting talented young spellers from across the nation.

The event is organized by the E.W. Scripps Company, and it has a long history dating back to 1925. The Scripps Spelling Bee aims to promote spelling proficiency, vocabulary development, and overall academic excellence among students. It provides an opportunity for young spellers to showcase their skills and compete at a national level.

Our Spring Fling Funraiser is one of our larger annual fundraisers. Tickets are sold per person, and tables can be sponsored by businesses. Enjoy an evening of student-led activities and performances while partaking in a simple meal, prepared by students and volunteers, all in the name of offering support for our school’s general fund. 

During the Scholastic Book Fair, a temporary book emporium is set up, and colorful displays and inviting shelves are filled with an extensive collection of books for elementary students. Students, teachers, and parents have the opportunity to browse through an exciting assortment of titles, from beloved classics to the latest bestsellers.

One of the highlights of the Scholastic Book Fair is the interactive and immersive environment it creates. The fair is adorned with vibrant decorations, themed displays, and eye-catching signage, transforming our Community Room space into a captivating literary wonderland. 

 

The Senior Family Luncheon is a special time to celebrate each one of our seniors individually, to celebrate their accomplishments, to pray for them, and to enjoy an intimate gathering with immediate family members and our staff. This is truly one of the special parts of graduating at Wellmont Academy. 

Our Parent Meetings are scheduled quarterly. They provide an avenue for parents to have fellowship with one another, gain important pieces of information, give input to our team, and meet with teachers for parent-teacher conferences.

Teacher Appreciation Days happen twice per year. During these weeks, parents and students celebrate the wonderful gift of service that our teachers take on every year. We are thankful for our amazing teachers, and this is just one way for us to show them!

Wellmont families participate in our Food Drive and our Uniform Donation in the Spring of each year. Both of these events allow us to serve our community while also having a little team competition fun. 

Students interested in teaching opportunities in elementary classrooms can apply for limited volunteer positions, helping students read, assisting lead teachers with lessons, grading papers, making copies, and generally serving our elementary teachers and younger students. Positions are competitive and students must show commitment each and every week to their lead teachers, as well as keep their own grades up in their classes, in order to keep their positions.

When needed, the administrative team interviews high school students who are interested in becoming a student intern in the office. Student interns learn administrative tasks such as class scheduling, field trip coordination, and basic record-keeping tasks. This is a great opportunity for workforce experience.
