If you see a Stingray smiling this week, you may have come across one of our outstanding Track and Field athletes! Our Emerald Coast Middle School Track and Field Stingrays were victorious at their meet with Baker Middle School on Tuesday (3/28). Congratulations to the students, coaches and families who continue to support each other and motivate us all with these outstanding achievements! You make us proud to be Stingrays of WCSD!

As part of the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Gaetz Institute aerospace courses at Paxton High School, students built underwater robots known as Seaperch robots. This year’s regional competition at Gulf Coast State College included an obstacle course challenge and a “finesse” challenge in which students designed an “arm” for the robot to successfully slide a pipe while underwater. Paxton’s team of, from left, Devon Stokes and Dylan Norris, utilized an arm that was designed in a computer aided design program and 3D printed. The team was able to move all five pipes while working 8-12 feet underwater in the timed challenge and earned third place out of seventy teams for their time. Submitted by Kalli McMillan.

Earlier this month, our Emerald Coast Middle School 8th graders attended an orientation at South Walton High School.  They toured the school, listened to very informative presentations, and prepared their class registration forms for their upcoming freshman year.  While we hate to see them leave us at ECMS, we know they are eager and prepared to meet the challenges of high school.  We wish our future Seahawks the best of luck as their journey continues.
