 If you are the parent or guardian of a Walton Middle School student, please bring your family and attend the upcoming "Making Math Matter" Title 1 Parent Training Night.  The event will kick-off in the WMS cafeteria on Thursday, December 3rd, at 6:00 p.m, as families enjoy a FREE dinner of pizza, desserts, and soft drinks.  After dinner, families will rotate between math-themed presentations and trainings--all geared toward making math matter outside of the classroom.  Families can also shop in the WMS holiday gift store, full of student-crafted items.  Free childcare will be provided for young children ages 4 to 5th grade.  'Tis the season for new learning at Walton Middle School, where math will come alive as families come together. 

Paxton High School Introduction to Aerospace students put their aerospace knowledge to the test as they designed a shoebox glider and presented their designs to NASA via a series of videoconferences. Via NASA's Digital Learning Network, students received valuable instruction and feedback on their designs.

 

Paxton High School’s Gaetz Aerospace Institute at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University students recently visited the flight line at Eglin Air Force Base where they benefitted from instruction from test pilots from the 40th Flight Test Squadron, led by Captain David Levene. Students wrapped up the day with an engineer’s tour of the Air Force Armament Museum, led by Dr. John Fay of the Air Force Research Laboratory. A huge thank you from the students goes out to the Northwest Florida chapter of the Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics for providing financial and logistical support of the trip.
