We would like to thank all of our Career and Technical Education (CTE) students and teachers for their enthusiastic response to February's CTE MONTH BULLETIN BOARD CHALLENGE..."What CTE Means to Me." Through this challenge students were encouraged to highlight their accomplishments, raise awareness of the role that CTE has in readying our students for careers and college, and generate excitement as an advocate for CTE programs in Walton County. Congratulations to the Early Childhood Education Program at Walton High School and the Culinary Arts Program at South Walton High School for their winning entries. Both groups were able to bring their programs to life with creative displays that highlighted each component of CTE and what it has to offer students. The winning groups will be awarded a pizza party for their effort and participation. Submitted by Michele Carter

Every year, in Mrs. Sammie Watson's 8th World Geography class, students pick a country that they "adopt" for the year. Recently, the students were assigned a project in which they had to bring in food that was to replicate the flag of their country. The students did an excellent job and the flags were delicious!
