Walton Middle School, in its second year as a Title 1 school, hosted the first parent training of the school year on Tuesday, September 20th, from 6:00-8:00. The event's theme was "Back to the Future of Learning" to symbolize the school's recent move back to its original location into a brand new facility with state-of-the-art, twenty-first century capabilities. Parents, grandparents, and students who attended enjoyed a free dinner of pizza, desserts, and soft drinks, followed by the annual Title 1 parent meeting presentation and transitional demonstrations focused on organization, digital citizenship, and middle school survival techniques. Though no one showed up in a time machine made out of a DeLorean, over 350 people did attend the event, tremendously enjoying their journey back to the future at WMS. Submitted by Kristen Rhodes.
