The Media Specialist at WDE, Mrs. Goodman, spoke to several third grade classes about choosing a great chapter book. Authors, genres, reading levels, and topics that were interesting to the students were discussed. Third grade teachers are working with students to build their reading stamina!

2nd graders at West DeFuniak Elementary participated in planting potatoes in a grade level garden on Wednesday, March 1st. The students were able to individually plant their own potatoes. Students learned that potatoes are usually planted first in a spring garden and what the criteria is for planting potatoes. The students had a blast working in the garden and getting a little dirty! Students are excited to see how well their plants will grow in their garden this year. Submitted by Amber Carnley/Jessica Dawkins.
