The March 10th Early Dismissal day provided Van R. Butler Elementary teachers an opportunity to benefit from three Professional Development activities. Pictured is a session on Algebraic Thinking, led by VRB teacher Jenna Knight.  Rebecca Stuart and Beth Toombs, also Butler teachers, led their peers in Cognitively Guided Thinking, and District Literacy Coach Carrie Chavers shared Strategies for Managing Reluctant Learners and Problem Behaviors.   What an amazing day of learning!

Freeport High School students Ryan Lechner and Martha Freeman were recently selected to represent CHELCO and Walton County in the 2016 Youth Tour in Washington, D.C.  Seventeen students were selected by area schools to participate in the first part of the youth tour experience.  After an interview, Ryan and Martha were among the four chosen to represent CHELCO's service territory.  We are very proud of both Ryan and Martha for representing Freeport High School well.
