FES is piloting a new program this spring and will fully implement it next year. WatchD.O.G. Dads (Dads of Great Students)is a program designed to get fathers involved in the school as another set of eyes and hands. Dads are encouraged to volunteer one day during the year to assist with activities and events and in the classroom to encourage education and to provide positive role models for the students. We look forward to fully implementing the program next year.

On April 20th, Walton Middle School held its first Science Palooza for eighth grade students.  Current and retired teachers and classroom aides led instruction and stations reviewing and celebrating science in preparation for Science FCAT. Submitted by Kristen Nelson.

Second graders at WDE recently took a field trip to the Rocking B-A-B Ranch in DeFuniak Springs. Students were able to learn interesting facts about both common farm animals and exotic animals at the ranch. Students really enjoyed being able to pet the young animals and were excited about getting to play and eat their lunch in the Big Barn!

Superintendent Hughes sent Marcello Garrison, an eighth grader in Mrs. Amy Bennett's reading class, a medal for completing 350 Achieve3000 reading activities at 75% or higher on his first attempt.  Achieve3000 recommends a student try to reach eighty activities by the end of the school year to reflect growth, and Marcello has surpassed the goal by 270 activities.  Marcello says that he was able to do so by completing his activities in the car drop-off line before school.  True dedication to learning at Walton Middle School!
