Van R. Butler Elementary students recently participated in a bicycle and pedestrian safety lesson as an outgrowth of the University of Florida - FL Safe Routes to School training our district offered to Elementary PE Teachers. They had a great day of learning how to stay safe on bikes and when walking to and from school.


They followed up with approximately 100 students participating in a school "Bike to School Day". Safe Routes to School trainer, Caitlin Cerame, was present and lead a group bike ride to school from Topsail State Park. It was a great day of safe bicycle riding!

MHS was happy to welcome back former students who are graduating from WHS this year. Students lined the halls as the returning Seniors walked through the school. We were so excited these students wanted to come "home" and show us what they have accomplished. Submitted by Elizabeth Gaither

WHS Senior visit to MHS

Students in Walton County have been working all year to prepare for their Algebra EOCs with the help of their teachers and utilizing a program called Math Nation. With their test dates just days always, “study experts” Darnell and Chelsea from Math Nation dropped by some of our secondary schools to encourage students to do their best. Students have been utilizing videos made by both Chelsea and Darnell in preparation for the EOCs. A visit from them truly brought their videos to life. Submitted by Lauren Moore
