Paxton High School’s Aerospace Career Academy students put their knowledge of air foils, or wings, to work this week with the help of Dr. John Fay, an aerospace engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Eglin Air Force Base. Dr. Fay taught the students how to test different wing designs, including adjusting weight, balance, and angle of attack. A huge thank you to Dr. Fay for volunteering his time!

MSE’s third graders are participating in the "Grasses in Classes" program, which gives students a direct role in the restoration of Choctawhatchee Bay. These students are learning about brackish water, snodgrass, and water pollution in the bay. This is a year-long project that will culminate in the students planting the grass they have tended along the shore of Choctawhatchee Bay. submitted by Krisy Spence

All across our county, our students, administrators, faculty, and families are doing what we can to help our neighboring counties as they struggle to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Michael. One of those efforts is our "Stuff the Van" campaign at all WCSD High Schools. School Buses are stationed outside each of our 4 high schools ready to accept donations during regular school hours, or approximately 7:00 am until 3:30 pm each school day, for as long as there is a need. Buses will transport relief supplies to affected areas as they fill up, and will come back to reload! Please help us fill the buses to the ceiling to show our caring and concern for our neighbors to the east!!!
Batteries and Flashlights are in great need, in addition to the items listed in the pictures below!

In seventh grade math at WMS, Mrs. Kari Ann Kinkey employs a variety of differentiation strategies to ensure ALL students learn. In a recent lesson, student Nayeli Salgado explained how she solved a problem in both Spanish and English for the benefit of the English language learners in the class. Students also worked collaboratively, using algebra tile manipulatives, to solve algebraic expressions. Mrs. Kinkey continually seeks out new methods to ensure math makes sense for her students.
