AVID students read to Head Start and Maude Saunders Elementary students in celebration of Read Across America Day (March 2).  This annual reading motivation and awareness program calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.  Both the younger and older students enjoyed the experience, which put a spotlight on the importance of reading.

Butler Elementary first graders in Mrs. Page, Ms. Clark, and Ms. Schmidt's classes researched Presidents in partner groups and created these collages inspired by the book 'What Presidents are Made Of' by Hanoch Piven. Students then presented their collages and research through multiple methods of presentation.

Walton High's Mock Trial students performed well once again!  We were given the unofficial MOST IMPROVED TEAM award this week.  This will become an official award next year - but we were told that HANDS DOWN it goes to Walton High this year.  The judge and jury today were floored at the growth they had as a team from Monday to Thursday.  Finally, Sophomore Ellie Johnson was selected as one of the MOST EFFECTIVE WITNESSES of the days of trial.
