In this engaging science lab, Mrs. Shani Hicks' fourth grade class at WDE explored food chains and webs by dissecting owl pellets! They found out that owls swallow their prey, and then regurgitate the fur and bones. Through this dissection, students were able to compare bones from their pellets to the bone chart to determine the types of prey owls feed on. By doing this, they were able to trace the flow of energy from the sun to producers and consumers, and classify owls in the food chain. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.

Kindergarten registration for the 2018-19 school year will be held at all Walton County elementary schools during weekdays from Monday, March 5th, 2018 to Friday, March 16th, 2018 between the hours of
8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. To be eligible to enter Kindergarten, a child must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1, 2018.
An official proof of birth is required at the time of registration. Hospital certificates are NOT official birth records. Parents who do not have their child’s birth certificate can obtain a certified copy by making a request to the state in which the child was born. Because this is often a lengthy process, parents needing to obtain a certificate are urged to do so now in order to receive it prior to this registration period. Children born in the state of Florida may obtain an official birth certificate at the Walton County Public Health Unit, 362 State Highway 83, DeFuniak Springs.
Before entering school in August, each kindergarten child must have the following:

  • official birth certificate (required for registration)
  • health examination**
  • current immunization record (DOH 680)**

**Parents will need to see their child’s health provider for a current exam and immunization update.
