Last week, students celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America. Elementary students dressed up, had Dr. Seuss birthday cake, read books, and were read to by high school students. Not only did high school students read to the younger students, they also got to have their own silent reading time. Way to show the importance of reading, Bobcats! Submitted by Kalli McMillan

We would like to thank all of our Career and Technical Education (CTE) students and teachers for their enthusiastic response to February's CTE MONTH BULLETIN BOARD CHALLENGE..."What CTE Means to Me." Through this challenge students were encouraged to highlight their accomplishments, raise awareness of the role that CTE has in readying our students for careers and college, and generate excitement as an advocate for CTE programs in Walton County. Congratulations to the Early Childhood Education Program at Walton High School and the Culinary Arts Program at South Walton High School for their winning entries. Both groups were able to bring their programs to life with creative displays that highlighted each component of CTE and what it has to offer students. The winning groups will be awarded a pizza party for their effort and participation. Submitted by Michele Carter

Yee-haw Y'all!  Bay Elementary hosted 40 families on Tuesday, March 5th for their annual "Kindergarten Round-up."  This year was extra special because it's the last year Bay Elementary will host such an event as the school prepares to move to Dune Lake Elementary in August 2019.  South-end families were invited to the “round-up" to register their student for Dune Lakes Elementary School, tour a “typical classroom,” meet the BES Kindergarten Team and receive information on ways to prepare their child for Kindergarten.  Bay Elementary Principal, soon-to-be Dune Lakes Elementary Principal, Meredith Spence led the evening by welcoming families and sharing renderings and details of the new facility with eager parents - PLUS – the new logo and mascot were revealed!  Bay Elementary is proud to become a Dune Lakes Elementary Sandpiper!

 

South-end families can register their Kindergarten student through March 15th during regular school hours at Bay Elementary School, 118 Gilmore Road, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459.  Packets are available at the front office and any registration questions should be directed to Julie Mason, masonj@walton.k12.fl.us.
