Fun with Florida Geography

October 15, 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!

Congratulations to Walton High School Senior, Kayla Jackson, for being recognized as Walton County's National Merit Scholarship Student.  Kayla ranked in the top 5% of the 1.5 million applicants across the nation.  Kayla is  the daughter of Mitch and Cindy Jackson. 

Mrs. Dawkins' and Mrs. Quinley's students could hardly contain their excitement when the Dugas Family Foundations 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!







Walton High School and Freeport High School's marching bands participated in the 2014 Southern Showcase Marching Band Competition on October 11th.  Both bands received superior ratings.
