Ellis Island comes to life at WDE! From 1892 to 1954, over twelve million immigrants entered the United States through the portal of Ellis Island, a small island in New York Harbor. Second grade students at WDE had the unique opportunity to experience life as an immigrant. This included choosing a foreign country, new name, and reason for immigrating to America. Students experienced waiting in a long line to enter Ellis Island, going through a medical exam, and a questioning session with an Ellis Island official who determined whether or not they could enter the United States for a better life.

In a partnership with AmeriCorp and  the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance, MSE students tended salt marsh nurseries throughout the school year. Periodically, they split the grasses to increase the nursery stock and received monthly education on shoreline restoration. The  “Grasses in Classes” program culminated with students planting their shoreline grasses at a salt marsh restoration site along Choctawhatchee Bay as part of the living shoreline initiative. The program instills a love of local habitat, restores shoreline and inspires the next generation of watershed stewards.

Recently, Walton Middle School seventh grade Civics students in Mrs. Katie Williams and Ms. Regina Messer's classes were caught sharpening their civics knowledge of landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases as they prepare for their EOC assessment in May.  Students worked in groups to sort landmark cases/descriptions together, and finally blended both sorts into one, creating relationships to demonstrate total mastery.  Civics review is standards-based, interactive, and fun at WMS.
