Kindergarten Orientation

July 26, 2021

We are excited to meet our newest Little Warriors on Monday, August 9th at 8:30 am. We know that Kindergarten students (and parents!) are a little nervous about that first day of school, so we encourage you to bring your Kindergartener to orientation, where you will both meet your child's teacher, learn all about the expectations of Kindergarten, and receive information about school breakfast and lunches, transportation, and more. 
Please arrive a few minutes early WITH PHOTO ID as all school visitors must be processed through our Raptor system to ensure school safety. Unfortunately, adults without a photo ID cannot be admitted to the school.
If you have not registered your child for Kindergarten, please do so as soon as possible so that we can prepare for the upcoming school year!
Just because it's summer doesn't mean teachers in Walton County stop thinking about their own learning and how it can impact their students.  A group of committed educators from Maude Saunders Elementary, Walton Middle School, and Walton High School chose to join together for a local AVID professional development experience hosted by WMS.  On June 15th and 16th, these teachers gained new knowledge and shared insights about the schoolwide AVID program, whose mission is to close the opportunity gap by accelerating student learning.  AVID believes that if educators can improve the likelihood that kids can go to a four-year college, then they can change the trajectory of students' lives.  By investing in the AVID philosophy and schoolwide WICOR strategies, teachers help students see possibilities, no matter their circumstances.  Through rigor and relationships, teachers equip students to envision their own potential.  In the two-day training session, facilitated by Gaby Brown (WMS), Jana Currid (WDE), Olivia Garrett (WDE), Lynne Martin (WCSD), and Kristen Nelson (WMS), teachers collaborated to gain more strategies and ideas for giving students the essential tools for clearing their paths of obstacles and setting themselves on the road to success.
