Kindergarten students at Butler Elementary School have been learning about Community Helpers.  When they had a chance to dress up and show what they want to be when they grow up, it was no surprise that there were a lot of “First Responders” in the hallways!  Our School Resource Deputy, Casy Lloyd, was excited to gather this elite group for a picture!

Students in Mr. Bump's class reviewed their recent vocabulary by playing Vocabulary Password. Students worked in groups of 4 to determine the vocabulary words based off the clues their teammates gave them. Students only had 1 minute to guess the vocabulary words correctly before the timer went off. The students enjoyed working with their peers on this engaging review lesson.

Superintendent Hughes, Faculty and Staff working with the In10sity Magnet Program students to build a sense of family and community. Plus, a new look for the entrance to In10sity Magnet Program. Changing the look and changing the future, one day at a time.  We would like to send out a special thanks to our community partner Piggly Wiggly for their involvement in this program.  Submitted by Lisa Pitts and Chelsea Martin.

Ten Apples Up On Top

September 18, 2017

After reading "Ten apples up on top", Mrs. Mishko's Kindergarten students were curious about gravity. They tried dropping an apple and a crayon to see which object would fall faster and also tested to see how many apples they could stack or balance on their heads. Now they know why apples fall down, instead of up....gravity, of course! Submitted by Krisy Spence.

The faculty and staff of West DeFuniak Elementary rallied around their co-worker, Dawn Barone, who is currently undergoing chemo therapy treatments. Mrs. Barone's treatments have resulted in her losing her hair. As the guidance counselor, Mrs. Barone often speaks with students about their character. Today, our faculty and staff were able to teach about compassion by wearing bandanas to support Mrs. Barone! We love you, Dawn! We're all in this together! #TeamBarone Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.
