Mr. Nathan Hight and the 1st grade students of West DeFuniak Elementary recently entertained parents and teachers with their musical program called Teddy Bear Christmas.  The students wore teddy bear masks and even shared how Christmas would not be the same with one of their loved ones missing.  Santa arrived to everyone's delight and helped save the day.  Check out our Facebook page to view a portion of the program.

The FES Student Council recently sponsored a canned food drive to benefit a local food bank and a family that recently lost their home to a fire in Freeport.  They wanted to see which holiday character could be the most generous.  Santa, Rudolph, Frosty, The Grinch, Jack Frost, and the Elves participated in the challenge.  Over 650 canned food items were collected.  The Student Council counted the items and found that the Elves were the most generous followed closely by Santa and The Grinch! The Student Council appreciates everyone for their generosity!
