Student-created goals are a tremendous part of learning at Walton Middle School. In classes throughout campus, students craft measurable and attainable goals and strive to reach them. On Thursday, February 15th, district leaders conducted a School Improvement site visit. Several articulate Warriors chatted with district leaders about their personal learning goals, discussing how and why they set their goals and what specific steps they were taking to achieve them. These conversations exemplified meaningful learning at WMS. Submitted by Kristen Nelson.
