Parents: We apologize for the summer reading packets being short a few pages! The packets that were sent home only have report pages for books 1-6. For students who want to qualify for the Summer Reading Hall of Fame (reading and completing a report on TEN grade level appropriate books) may choose from the following options for book reports 7,8,9, and 10: 1. pick up a new, complete packet fro...m the front office at WDE, 2. read four of the summer reading books that you received in the blue backpacks and use four activities from the packets that came along with those books. Turn those in along with the original 6 book report forms that were sent home, OR 3. read four books, write the title, author, and your favorite part of the book and why on paper, and turn those in along with the original 6 book report forms that were sent home. Happy Summer Reading!!!!

West DeFuniak Elementary students took part in the 3RD annual nationwide reading challenge called Read the Most Coast to Coast on Friday, February 28, 2014.  The national celebration of reading challenged students at all grade levels to join together and break the record for the number of Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day. Our school was among thousands of U.S. schools that helped top this national record. Nationwide we beat last year’s record by reading a total of 4,987,949 books in one day.  WDE students contributed 2,055 books to this goal.  Mrs. Leavins third grade was the top class contributing 105 quizzes. Way to go to West DeFuniak!
