In September, the Kindergarten classes at West DeFuniak Elementary learned about the five senses. The students in Mrs. Davis' and Mrs. KcKee's classes loved examining, exploring, and of course tasting different varieties of apples! 

Students used all 5 of their senses to enjoy the apples but they especially enjoyed the tasting part of the experiment!

Then, students took their families to show off their classrooms and visit with their teachers. The whole school gathered back together for some math station fun. Mr. Greg Tang Jr. and Mr. Jared Saavedra targeted building students' knowledge of critical math strategies and skills, while also giving them a chance to practice those strategies and skills in fun and engaging ways. They encourage both parents and students to think about numbers in new and fun ways together. Submitted by Allie Blanton

For a project in Ms. McMillan's Digital Information Technology class, students were asked to follow the steps of development and marketing to create a product or service to be sold to the public. Students had no limits on what their product or service could be and were to work under the idea that they had unlimited resources. For his project, Blaise Cottle (9th grade), developed the 27th letter. He explained that the point of his letter (pronounced "ei-SSSS") was to replace the "es" and "ies" at the end of plural words. Blaise shared his creative idea with the rest of his class and the seniors in Mrs. Hall's AP Literature class, giving them examples of how the new letter works and providing them with a visual aide of what the letter looks like. We are proud of Blaise and his excellence in innovation.
