Superhero Day

November 4, 2014

Paxton, Fla.--Get your run or walk on and help send deserving students to college at the first annual Jingle Bell 5K to be held at Paxton School Saturday, December 6. The “cross country” style run/walk will begin at 9 a.m. and will include prizes for first place in each run and walk age category.

 

In addition, kick the season off right by wearing a “jingle bell” themed costume to be entered for a chance to win prizes for the top three costumes. The cost for entry is $25, with all proceeds going to benefit scholarships for members of the school’s AVID program, a unique program designed to help prepare all students for college readiness. The first 50 participants registered will receive a free t-shirt.

 

Participants may pre-register for the event at www.active.com. Registration forms are also available for pick-up at Paxton School, Dr. Chuck Stevenson’s office in DeFuniak Springs, FL or at Ranch House in Florala, Alabama.

The 5th period Art students, grades 6th-7th, had a great experience today at Freeport Middle School. Mr. Greg Sauer from FSU played the cello for all of us to hear. This visit is a part of our "Music in Pictures" project sponsored by the Rosemary Beach Foundation. The students practiced visualizing sound with imagery, colors, and feelings. Fun was had by all!

Congratulations to Walton High School Senior, Kayla Jackson, for being recognized as Walton County's National Merit Scholarship Student.  Kayla ranked in the top 5% of the 1.5 million applicants across the nation.  Kayla is  the daughter of Mitch and Cindy Jackson. 

Fun with Florida Geography

October 15, 2014

Fourth graders at WDE created Florida cookies while studying Florida geography. The students also labeled important cities, rivers, regions, surrounding states and bodies of water with icing and candy. After the cookie maps were finished, they enjoyed taking a bite out of Florida!
