We have some exciting news! During Celebrate Literacy Week, several students submitted entries to a contest sponsored by the Florida Department of Education. Congratulations to Brixlee Allen for winning 1st place in the K-2 division for the state of Florida!!! Brixlee, a second grade student, read a book about Benjamin Franklin and then did a fabulous job illustrating it and writing about what she learned. West DeFuniak Elementary will receive $500 worth of books for the library for Brixlee's winning entry. We couldn't leave Brixlee out. She received a bag of her favorite goodies and a $50 Amazon gift card. Join us in congratulating her for this wonderful achievement.
