When PHS students arrived to school on Tuesday morning (12/19/2017), they were greeted by a large group of Christmas characters to help them start off the Christmas season. Santa and many of his teaching helpers were on hand.  Superintendent Hughes is quoted as saying "Thanks for creating a great atmosphere for our students! EPIC!"

Mr. Nathan Hight and the 1st grade students of West DeFuniak Elementary recently entertained parents and teachers with their musical program called Teddy Bear Christmas.  The students wore teddy bear masks and even shared how Christmas would not be the same with one of their loved ones missing.  Santa arrived to everyone's delight and helped save the day.  Check out our Facebook page to view a portion of the program.
