Mrs. Stuart's second grade class at Van R. Butler Elementary School recently participated in the 2016 Florida Chautauqua Assembly. This year's theme was "A Journey into America: Life since Leave it to Beaver." Mrs. Stuart's class won second place in the Chautauqua Assembly's People's Choice Awards. The class exhibit showcased the difference between segregation and integration. They really enjoyed researching and digging deeper into what life would have been like for game changers like Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and even Thurgood Marshall. 

WMS Celebrates Literacy Week

WMS Celebrates Literacy Week
By Cathy Mosley

 

Walton Middle School celebrated Literacy Week January 25-29.  Each day had a different dress-up theme.  Students participating received a prize in their Language Arts class each day.  This year there was an AR test challenge.  During this week, students could put their name in a drawing for a $25 gift card if they took an Accelerated Reader (AR) test on their level and made a passing grade of 80 percent or better.  The more books they read and tested on, the more chances they had to enter the drawing.  Congratulations to the winners in each grade level.

This weekend, Ms. Powell's Economics Class placed second in the Chautauqua Assembly Student Museum Competition. The class' exhibit showcased the difference between board games and electronic games: half 1950s, half modern. They researched, assembled and presented the board game vs electronic game topic and thoroughly enjoyed it!

We thank all those who were generous enough to donate furniture and decorations to our presentation. We also want to thank those who voted for our exhibit throughout the weekend.
