Judge W. Howard LaPorte, Ret. of the first Judicial District of Florida, visited Freeport Middle School on October 24th, as part of the Justice Teaching program.  The Justice Teaching Program is a partnership program pairing lawyers and judges with elementary, middle, and high school classes throughout Florida and was created by Florida Supreme Court Justice R. Fred Lewis. FMS students learned about the Bill of Rights under the U.S. Constitution. Judge LaPorte drew on his experience as a Judge and a practicing attorney to teach students their rights under the law and how these rights were developed following the  Revolutionary War. Students in Mr. Wilkerson’s 6th Grade classes thoroughly enjoyed his visit and the opportunity to ask him questions. Judge LaPorte has been teaching this program at Freeport Middle School for the last 13 years.

Mrs. Fuentes’ class has been learning about the Earth, sun, and stars. As part of their learning, they had a discussion about how Earth’s gravity pulls objects towards the ground. They discovered that gravity is what allows us to be able to stay on the ground and why objects fall. Students were able to use the scientific method when applying what they have learned about gravity to create their own parachutes for their bat or ghost. Students learned that the parachute will only slow down the object’s descent towards the ground and gravity will still pull the object down to the ground.

Seniors from Walton High School, Freeport High School, and Paxton School gathered at Walton High School to participate in Senior Empowerment Day on Wednesday, October 25, at Walton High School.

Students moved through rotation to different stations where they had the opportunity to interact with representatives from local agencies and professions, post-secondary institutions, military, as well as staff members in an effort to provide them with resources to make good decisions about their post-high school career path. 
Presenters shared information on topics such as banking, cooking, interviewing skills, veterinary medicine, emergency services, fire and rescue, law enforcement, nursing and pharmaceutical, musical theatre, and education.

Special thanks to all those who participated in bringing this resource to our WCSD seniors, and to those who coordinated and collaborated at Walton High School to make it happen! #EPIC2 #ProgressonPurpose
