Congratulations to Shaleigh Geoghagan and Hailey Myddleton for qualifying to participate in the state cross country meet.  This is the first time in Paxton's school history that cross country athletes have qualified to participate at the state level.  To qualify, Shaleigh Geoghagan ran a 20:30 and finished 9th at regionals and Hailey Myddleton ran an 18:07 and finished 15th. The two will run at the state meet on Saturday, Nov. 7 in Tallahassee.

The Paxton team  was all smiles as they earned the District Cross Country runnerup trophy and a berth to regionals.

Last week students in Mrs. Shubert's 2nd grade class participated in Book Talk presentations. Each student chose a fictional character to portray as they recounted their book for the class.  Grayson Booker chose the book "Dragons love Tacos". He dressed up like the Dragon and brought in a taco prop. He enthused the class with his descriptive language and narrative details.  Grayson set the bar high for the remaining presenters.  Excellent Job Grayson!

The Rosemary Beach Foundation presents cellist Carrie Miller in a visit to Freeport Elementary School's 4th grade class. The musician's performance is part of the annual music/art contest known as Music in Pictures. The students will create a painting based upon a choice of selected classical music pieces.
