Our first Friday Cookout at In10sity Magnet Program! Mr. D’Avignon and Mr. Arnold took on the grilling duties as our faculty, staff and students spent time building a sense of community with one another. We all send a special “thank you” to the DeFuniak Springs Walmart for their assistance.

Teachers at West DeFuniak are placing an emphasis on grammar this year. In an effort to encourage students and staff to promote better punctuation and grammar, Principal Darlene Paul ordered new shirts for all of her staff. Shirts proudly proclaim Let's eat grandma. Let's eat, Grandma. Punctuation saves lives. Grandma probably prefers the second punctuation! Fifth grade teachers Debbie Bush, Olivia Garrett, Hope Allen, Jana Currid, and Andy Stafford are pictured sporting their new shirts. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.
WDE second grade students in Mrs. Dawkins’ class enjoyed a team-building activity called “Newspaper Towers”. Students competed against each other by constructing towers using only newspapers and tape. This activity involves creativity, coordination, and teamwork! Working effectively in a team environment is crucial for an EPIC year! Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.
