WDE students enjoyed Breakfast with Santa. Students wrote letters to Santa, ate breakfast, and spent some special time with St. Nick. Parents enjoyed the silent auction and watching their children interact with Santa. If you haven't seen the Teddy Bear Christmas tree in the atrium, stop by! It's a great place for a few pictures of your children. Thank you to the WDE PTO for sponsoring such a great event.

The office at Walton High School looks like a Winter Wonderland, thanks to the creativity of Linda Daniel, main office secretary. Twinkling lights, an extensive Christmas Village that covers the full length of one entire wall, a cozy fireplace, Holiday music, and a beautifully decorated tree help to "make the season bright!" Ms. Daniel spent many hours decorating the area from her personal collection, with the help of students who created beautiful snowflakes during a "Snowflake Contest" she organized, and former Walton High School student, Kyle Doggett.
Winners of the contest were:
1st place - Dale Brown
2nd place - Abigail Lara
3rd place - Katie Duncan
Honorary - Raegan Clardy (for turning in the most snowflakes)
What a beautiful way to usher in the holiday season! All that's missing is a cup of hot chocolate!!
