MSE 5th Graders Live Like Sea Turtles

April 1, 2019:  Our fifth graders visited the beach last week and learned that the life of a Sea Turtle is not an easy one! Thanks to the Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles Volunteers for organizing fun, educational activities for our students. Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles volunteers are dedicated to promoting sea turtle conservation through awareness and education for the residents and 3 million+ visitors to Walton County, Florida. Now that our students know the challenges that Sea Turtles face, we consider ourselves lifelong friends of sea turtles too!


MSE Fifth Graders Visit ECTC

March 28, 2019:  MSE 5th graders visited Emerald Coast Technical College today and learned about the many programs the school offers. The students visited several programs, including Nursing and Health Science, Information Technology, Automotive, Electricity, and Cosmetology. In addition, Career Source provided each student with a printout of career paths that they are best suited for, based on results of an online interest survey they took. Maude Saunders is fortunate to have an awesome business partner like ECTC!!


With Sincere Thanks

March 1, 2019:  Fifth grade music students wrote content-based thank you letters to the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra after visiting the performance of Peter vs. the Wolf.  We appreciate the opportunity to participate in this truly joyful experience.


Student-led Conferences

January 23, 2019:  MSE fifth graders are taking ownership of their learning by participating in student-led conferences with their parents.  These students are able to speak with confidence about what they know and how they learned it. They set goals, monitor their own progress, and reflect on their own strengths and areas for improvement.
