WHS United Way Day of Caring

September 18, 2017

Twenty-one WHS Key Club students participated in the annual United Way Day of Caring on September 12. This year students worked at the ARC and helped clean up the property - trimming hedges, pulling weeds, and even killing a rattlesnake. They didn't leave without a few cuts here and there, but the feeling of helping neighbors down the street was worth it all! Submitted by Christy English.

Students in Mr. Bump's class reviewed their recent vocabulary by playing Vocabulary Password. Students worked in groups of 4 to determine the vocabulary words based off the clues their teammates gave them. Students only had 1 minute to guess the vocabulary words correctly before the timer went off. The students enjoyed working with their peers on this engaging review lesson. Submitted by Brianna Leavins.

Ten Apples Up On Top

September 18, 2017

After reading "Ten apples up on top", Mrs. Mishko's Kindergarten students were curious about gravity. They tried dropping an apple and a crayon to see which object would fall faster and also tested to see how many apples they could stack or balance on their heads. Now they know why apples fall down, instead of up....gravity, of course! Submitted by Krisy Spence.

We are so excited that we get to brag on Jordan Nichols, a Junior at SWHS.  Jordan is a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist.  He is one of 16,000 Semifinalists in the US and will have the opportunity to compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million. Jordan earned this distinction by taking the PSAT/NMSQT at SWHS.  Last year Jordan was a member of the Walton County Academic Team that won the State Academic Championship.  He is a member of the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Seahawk Tennis Team.

We congratulate Jordan for this accomplishment and encourage all of our Seahawks to take the PSAT seriously when it is given at SWHS on October 11th.  Maybe you can follow in Jordan’s footsteps! Submitted by Barbara Stratton.
