Walton High's Mock Trial students performed well once again!  We were given the unofficial MOST IMPROVED TEAM award this week.  This will become an official award next year - but we were told that HANDS DOWN it goes to Walton High this year.  The judge and jury today were floored at the growth they had as a team from Monday to Thursday.  Finally, Sophomore Ellie Johnson was selected as one of the MOST EFFECTIVE WITNESSES of the days of trial.

On February 20th, the Freeport Middle School National Junior Honor Society helped move approximately 500 bags of oyster shells to spread across over 20 feet of shoreline. Their efforts helped to create a natural reef for our bay, and assists in protecting and preserving the shoreline. Along with using recycled oyster shells, it helps filter the water in the most natural way.
