WDE 2nd grade students enjoyed participating in a “Genre Carnival” on Tuesday! Students began the day with Mrs. Tammy Goodman, WDE librarian, and learned about book genres through a character known as “Mr. Wiggles”. Students sorted books by genres through an interactive game. Second graders also enjoyed exploring library books and sorting them by genre. Throughout the day, students rotated classrooms while learning about different types of genres and earning special treats! Sharing lots of different kinds, or genres, of books with young readers exposes them to different words, different pictures, and whole new worlds.

The Walton High School AVID juniors and seniors recently visited the Troy University campus. Troy Ambassadors gave them a tour of the campus where they were able to experience a little of the college life. Later the students were able to attend the homecoming game against Georgia Southern. The plunging temperatures and stinging rain couldn’t dampen their spirits or their individual determination to enjoy this opportunity! Submitted by Christy English.
Walton High School sophomore students, Shelbee Castrillo and Cheyanne Cordle, received monetary awards from Florida Farm Bureau for placing 1st and 2nd place respectively in the 2017 Florida Farm Bureau Speech Competition. The topic of this year's speech was "Today's food companies employ many tactics including food labels to gain a marketing edge. How can farmers and ranchers ensure that consumers understand these labels and have confidence in the safety and quality of their food?" Shelbee and Cheyanne are students in the Youth Leadership class at WHS under the supervision of Kelley Stephenson, WHS Instructor. Pictured below is Shelbee Castrillo (1st place winner).
