Hispanic Heritage Celebration Month 

        Celebrating Walton School District Hispanic Educator Rock Stars

District students were ready to get back into the swing of school after Spring Break when the country was hit with the COVID-19 Corona Virus.  Van R. Butler’s non/limited-English speaking students who were dependent on the support of their teacher, Ms. Andria Delgado, and our ELL Aides; Iris Delgado, Florencia Branagan, and Ginna Perez were going home for an undetermined amount of time with coursework they sometimes struggled to understand face-to-face in the classroom!

Cavazos served in the Korean war as the commander of the 65th Infantry Regiment. He further served in Vietnam as commander of the 1st Battalion, 18th Infantry Division.
