The Walton County Snowbirds presented their annual scholarships to two South Walton High School seniors, Sydney Balfanz and Drake Roberts.

Sydney plans to attend the University of Florida to major in biology before attending medical school.

Drake is going west to Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri to play baseball and study to be an airplane mechanic.

South Walton High School is thankful for the support from our snowbird friends every year.

After extensive district-wide professional development provided by Ms. Beatrice Palls of B & B Educational Consultants, Inc., and collaboration with district and school personnel, we are excited to announce the launch of Walton County School District’s first Newcomer Program for our non-English speaking students.  Van R. Butler has become the flagship elementary school for Walton County’s bold initiative to develop and implement an academic and social program to support our recently arrived immigrants and their families. 

Recently enrolled students who are non-English or limited-English speaking in grades two through five will receive intensive English Language Development and English Fundamentals of Reading instruction in a classroom that has appropriate and culturally- sensitive curriculum aligned to Florida Standards.  In addition, the students will participate in cultural awareness activities that are designed to assist them in acclimating to their new country.  We are looking forward to the success of these students and this program.
