Kindergarten students at Butler Elementary School have been learning about Community Helpers. When they had a chance to dress up and show what they want to be when they grow up, it was no surprise that there were a lot of “First Responders” in the hallways! Our School Resource Deputy, Casy Lloyd, was excited to gather this elite group for a picture! Submitted by Tammy Smith.

The faculty and staff of West DeFuniak Elementary rallied around their co-worker, Dawn Barone, who is currently undergoing chemo therapy treatments. Mrs. Barone's treatments have resulted in her losing her hair. As the guidance counselor, Mrs. Barone often speaks with students about their character. Today, our faculty and staff were able to teach about compassion by wearing bandanas to support Mrs. Barone! We love you, Dawn! We're all in this together! #TeamBarone Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.

What makes things move? WDE second graders used marshmallow shooters to investigate forces. Students learned that nothing moves without force and that everything can be moved if the force is strong enough. The way to put an object in motion is by pushing it or pulling it.
