Pennies for Patients

West DeFuniak students collected change for the K Kids Pennies for Patients campaign to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society during the month of October.  Our goal was to raise $1400.00 and our students surpassed that goal!  WDE raised $1562.04 for this cause.  Way to go, Little Braves!!  

Fun With Florida Geography

October 21, 2014

Fourth graders at WDE created Florida cookies while studying Florida geography. The students also labeled important cities, rivers, regions, surrounding states and bodies of water with icing and candy. After the cookie maps were finished, they enjoyed taking a bite out of Florida!

Mrs. Dawkins' and Mrs. Quinley's students could hardly contain their excitement when the Dugas Family Foundation purchased enough books from the book fair to donate one to every student at WDE.  A very big thank you goes out this very generous and thoughtful organization!

Class Picture Day

October 21, 2014

Friday, October 24 will be Class Picture/Make-up Picture Day

If your child was not here on the first picture day,  they will need to have their picture taken on this day.  If you do not like the proof that you received from the first picture day, your child can do a redo because these pictures are the ones going in the yearbook.  

ALL STUDENTS will have their picture taken for the Class Group Picture.  

Class Group Pictures (NOT individual make-up/redo pictures) are on a pre pay basis.  If you want a class group picture, please turn in your money no later than the morning of picture day!
