Great People Create Great Acts of Kindness!

Tuesday, February 21st brought our school a wonderful surprise!  Wells Middle School had a special visit from Mr. Adam Tomlinson.  Mr. Tomlinson is from Farmers Insurance Agency in Catoosa and he came to our school to surprise Mrs. Karleskint with classroom supplies.  Mr. Tomlinson noticed an online request that earlier this year Mrs. Karleskint had put together for the math department.  

Mr. Tomlinson, thank you for thinking of our school, teachers, and students.  Your act of kindness was greatly needed and greatly appreciated!

Wells Middle School IBOOK

for 2015-16 School Year


School-issued laptops click

for Catoosa students

CATOOSA — Thanks to a district-wide technology initiative, fewer Catoosa students can claim a dog ate their homework. Launched in August 2010 at Wells Middle School, Catoosa Public Schools' One-to-One program provides a Wi-Fi-enabled Apple MacBook and charger to each of the more than 1,000 secondary students in the district. This year's junior class, which was part of the One-to-One program's roll-out as eighth graders, will be Catoosa's first graduating class to have used laptops continuously in the classroom. More from Tulsa World...
