Last week, Mrs. Pryor's fifth grade science class at Freeport Middle School was visited by Dr. Dara Johns from Parkway Veterinary Hospital in Niceville, Fl. Dr. Johns spoke to the students about the importance of making good grades, working hard, careers, colleges, and gave the students some great studying tips. She also brought in many models and handouts to interact with the students. She covered many veterinarian topics including heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, animal teeth, radiology,  medicine, types of animals, infections, and answered many of the students' questions.  Submitted by Chelsea Ellison.

Receiving an office referral can be a good thing for students at Butler Elementary! Positive office referrals were implemented this school year as a part of our Positive Behavior Support program. School administrators reward referred children with a “brag tag”, and in some cases a song written just for them by Mr. Drake! Submitted by Sherrie Binkowski.

Bay Elementary participated in a Carnival Parade as part of the interdisciplinary study of Brazile. Students from each grade focused their studies on different aspects of the country. Each grade made a special float or poster that represented their topic of study. Topics included the Rain Forest, Flowers and Fauna, Sports and Culture. They all did a great job and had a great time!

Look at the fun students had at Science Night at VRB! Emerald Coast Science Center works with us each year to set up multiple stations for students to visit to learn about all kinds of science. Students who completed at least 6 of those experiments received a "magic potion" to enjoy at the end of the event. Submitted by Sherrie Binkowski.
