ECMS Student Council students worked hard at coordinating a school-wide canned goods drive during the weeks prior to Thanksgiving break. Students collected thousands of non-perishable food items benefiting the local organization, "Caring & Sharing".  The generosity of Stingray students and families were sure to bring happy smiles to families of Walton County.

Rub-a-dub-dub, these cars got a scrub!  The Butler Elementary Student Council recently held a carwash to raise funds for the school.  Each year the Council purchases items for the school.  Some of the most recent purchases of the group include picnic tables, flags, and signage for the campus.

On the evening of Thursday, Nov. 16, the Walton High School AVID students and their families gathered for the first annual AVID Family Thanksgiving. Every family brought something to add to the Thanksgiving table and Lauran Hebert, a senior AVID student, expressed her gratitude to all the AVID Elective teachers: Mr. & Mrs. Carnley, Mrs. Zodrow, Ms. Bare, and Mr. Cooper. It was a beautiful time of food, fun, and fellowship! #WHSAVIDstrong Submitted by Christy English.
