In this engaging science lab, Mrs. Shani Hicks' fourth grade class at WDE explored food chains and webs by dissecting owl pellets! They found out that owls swallow their prey, and then regurgitate the fur and bones. Through this dissection, students were able to compare bones from their pellets to the bone chart to determine the types of prey owls feed on. By doing this, they were able to trace the flow of energy from the sun to producers and consumers, and classify owls in the food chain. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.

Congratulations to WHS student Jarrett Sniezko for earning a spot in the Southern Knights Drum & Bugle Corps.  He will tour the country this summer, and compete all over the US with finals ending in Pennsylvania on September 2, 2018.  Jarrett is the second Walton High band student to be offered a contract this year, and this is quite possibly the first time in school history that two students have made the Drum Corps in the same year.   In addition, Jarrett is the 5th student in 20 years to be chosen for the Corps.
