Washington Middle School May Students of the Week


Campbellton Elementary celebrated the last day of school with the traditional ringing of the bell by sixth-grade students as the school day came to an end on Tuesday, May 22.

The bell is located high above the front door, and can be rung by tugging the chord attached to it.

Students in grades kindergarten through fifth formed a giant tunnel the length of the main hallway, which sixth-grade students passed through, taking them to the front door.

The sixth-grade students rang the bell after passing through the tunnel, a way to mark an end of their time at Campbellton Elementary.

Pictures from the last day festivities at Campbellton Elementary are below.


Greg Garrett is the new school resource officer at Washington High School. He will begin his duties at WHS at the start of the 2018-19 school year.

Garrett replaces Doug Tollison, who will return to road duty with the Washington Police Department after spending seven years as resource officer with the School District of Washington.

Before he returns to road duty on a permanent basis, Tollison will fill in at Washington Middle School in the fall until current WMS resource officer Mindy Schmelz returns from a knee injury.

There also will be an elementary school resource officer beginning in the 2018-19 school year, who has yet to be named.

“I want to thank Officer Tollison for his seven years of excellent service as SRO,” said WHS Principal Dr. Kelle McCallum. “We are excited to have Officer Garrett on board as our new SRO. We feel like he will be a great fit for our building and a positive role model for our students.”

Garrett has been with the Washington Police Department for 17 years. He is a 1998 graduate of Washington High School.

Greg and his wife, Krista (Luckey), reside in Washington. They have one daughter, Madison, who is 1 ½ years of age.
