As part of literacy week at WDE, Mrs. Goodman, librarian, hosted a book tasting event. First grade students were given the opportunity to "taste" fiction and nonfiction books. Students are now eager to visit the library and check out some of the books they tasted!

Mr. Nathan Hight and the 1st grade students of West DeFuniak Elementary recently entertained parents and teachers with their musical program called Teddy Bear Christmas. The students wore teddy bear masks and even shared how Christmas would not be the same with one of their loved ones missing. Santa arrived to everyone's delight and helped save the day. Check out our Facebook page to view a portion of the program.
