On November 16, 2016 second grade students at West Defuniak Elementary enjoyed learning about Native Americans from Ms. Sylvia Glover. Ms. Glover is from Westville, Florida. She collects Native American artifacts such as arrowheads, pottery, deerskin blankets, and other various tools from this era. She explained to the students how the items were used by the Native Americans in everyday life. Students enjoyed holding and observing the artifacts. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.

Donuts with Dads at WDE

November 17, 2016

Bring Your Dad to School/Donuts with Dad was a huge success at WDE on Tuesday, November 15th.  Students and dads  enjoyed donuts in the classroom while completing academic activities together.  Several stand in dads were on hand from Southwide Baptist Church and affiliates of By the Sea Resorts.  Donuts were provided for all students and dads, courtesy of a very generous donor.
