We have some exciting news! During Celebrate Literacy Week, several students submitted entries to a contest sponsored by the Florida Department of Education. Congratulations to Brixlee Allen for winning 1st place in the K-2 division for the state of Florida!!! Brixlee, a second grade student, read a book about Benjamin Franklin and then did a fabulous job illustrating it and writing about what she learned. West DeFuniak Elementary will receive $500 worth of books for the library for Brixlee's winning entry. We couldn't leave Brixlee out. She received a bag of her favorite goodies and a $50 Amazon gift card. Join us in congratulating her for this wonderful achievement.

Mrs. Greer Harvell works hard to ensure her students learn through as many hands-on STEM experiences as possible.  This week, Sea Perch students built rovs, while eighth grade science students explored pH and suspensions.  Science makes so much more sense when it is interactive and collaborative.
