This past Friday, March 11, the WHS Band had their Concert Music Performance Assessment at Chipley High School.  The band was adjudicated by three judges for their stage performance, and by one judge for their Sight Reading performance in a separate area.  The band received STRAIGHT SUPERIOR RATINGS from all judges from this performance.


On Saturday, March 12, our Winter Guard traveled to Daphne, Alabama, to compete in their final competition before championships in April.  At our last competition the group placed 3rd and were within ONE point of first and second.  On Saturday our group kicked it into high gear and placed FIRST in their class, passing both Pace High School and Choctawhatchee with a 4-point margin between our school and second place.

Watching Others Work to Improve Our Personal Craft

On Thursday, March 10th, teachers at Walton Middle School participated in highly engaging, peer-led professional development activities.  Sessions throughout the afternoon focused on differentiating meaningful instruction, interpreting current data, and writing classroom grants.  In addition to these informative sessions, teachers also played a game called "Brown Bag It" that allowed them to help their peers problem-solve their burning questions.  At the end of the session, teachers also nominated their coworkers for faculty Oscar awards (complete with snazzy prizes) to recognize their hard work each day on the job.  The early release afternoon was full of excitement and learning at WMS.

It was standing room only at West DeFuniak Elementary as students, parents, and entire families showed up for an exciting evening.  A total of 613 people signed in. Students and their families enjoyed pizza and sweet treats, hands-on science stations, hands-on math activities by grade level, an estimation station, and a photo booth.
