Teachers at West DeFuniak are placing an emphasis on grammar this year. In an effort to encourage students and staff to promote better punctuation and grammar, Principal Darlene Paul ordered new shirts for all of her staff. Shirts proudly proclaim Let's eat grandma. Let's eat, Grandma. Punctuation saves lives. Grandma probably prefers the second punctuation! Fifth grade teachers Debbie Bush, Olivia Garrett, Hope Allen, Jana Currid, and Andy Stafford are pictured sporting their new shirts. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.
MSE teachers had an EPIC day on August 2nd with our Twitter Selfie Challenge. Twitter was introduced to teachers as an innovative source for professional learning opportunities. Our staff collaborated in teams to complete their Twitter scavenger hunt. One task was to have a selfie with Superintendent Hughes.
