Submitted by Christy English, Walton High School


In honor of Celebrate Literacy Week, Walton High offered free books to students, waived fines, gave out bookmarks, and had a spotlight on Braves TV of the top 10 reasons to read.  We also held a drawing for a $50 gift card and goodie bag.  Students that checked out a book during the week were entered into the drawing.  The winner was Emily Carroll.  Congratulations Emily!

Paxton’s ERAU Students Visit Representative Brad Drake
Submitted by Heather Stewart, Paxton School

Paxton High School’s Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Gaetz Aerospace Institute students recently traveled to Tallahassee, Florida for a full day of activities.

 Students put their skills to the test during a simulated space mission at the Challenger Learning Center where they worked together to complete the mission including research, analysis and engineering. Following the mission and other activities at the center, students met with Representative Brad Drake during a tour of the Florida Capitol, followed by a visit to Florida State University’s robotics lab and $6 million wind tunnel.

 Thank you to the Florida Space Grant Consortium for their generous grant support of this trip.
