This year, Maude Saunders fourth and fifth grade students were active participants in student-led conferences with parents.

The Marvel of Flight Fly In & Expo is held each spring at the DeFuniak Springs Airport. This is a 2 day event that hosts unique aircrafts and real-world pilots. WDE students watched presentations about each plane, climbed aboard a restored WWII helicopter, and got to see these remarkable planes fly in an airshow during the trip. The goal of Marvel of Flight is to inspire future aviators through fun and educating experiences. Students not only gained knowledge of each individual aircraft, they were also presented with the science behind flight. The learning experiences complimented our science unit on force and motion. WDE students had a great day exploring the Marvel of Flight!
