Mr. Hughes met personally today with an MSE student who remembered the "see something, say something" policy by alerting her teacher to a situation she had an uneasy feeling about. School safety is a top priority for the Walton County School District. Sumitted by Krisy Spence.

On Friday, March 2, Mr. Dennie Smith's eighth grade AVID students thoughtfully and respectfully voiced their opinions about controversial, culturally relevant topics through a Philosophical Chairs activity.  Not only did students develop and articulate their own arguments, but they also facilitated the discussion themselves with only minimal guidance from Mr. Smith.  Students walked away from the experience with a firm understanding that their opinions and those of others matter--and can thereby be used to meaningfully impact change in today's world.  Submitted by Kristen Nelson.

Students at Butler Elementary School recently pulled together to raise $1485.58 during our recent “Change For Children” fundraising drive.  Student Council members led the drive by encouraging students to participate, collecting donations, and counting the funds!  Way to go Butler Bears!

The Cat Bus readers at FES have read over 100 books on the bus this year! Students cannot get off the bus until 7:30 AM so the bus driver, Norman Cyphers (06-04), decided a good way to spend this time would be with the students reading. A different student reads a book to the entire bus each morning when they arrive at school. The bus driver also encourages the students to take AR tests to become a Cool Cat Reader. Way to go Cat Bus! Submitted by Nancy Currie.
