Students in Walton County have been working all year to prepare for their Algebra EOCs with the help of their teachers and utilizing a program called Math Nation. With their test dates just days always, “study experts” Darnell and Chelsea from Math Nation dropped by some of our secondary schools to encourage students to do their best. Students have been utilizing videos made by both Chelsea and Darnell in preparation for the EOCs. A visit from them truly brought their videos to life. Submitted by Lauren Moore

WHS Seniors visited Maude Saunders today to reminisce about their “Little Warrior” days and walk the halls as an inspiration to our current students. This annual tradition always brings a lot of smiles, and a few tears, as we watch our former students reach this milestone. We wish each and every one of them the best of luck!

“MSE’s Got Talent”
Each year, MSE showcases the many talents of our students by allowing them to perform on the morning show the last month of school. The entire school enjoys seeing gymnasts, comedians, magicians, musicians, athletes, singers, and more, perform each day. Every child in the school has the opportunity to sign up and perform for their peers. Submitted by Krisy Spence

The WMS Civics Department is in full-swing preparing for students' upcoming Civics EOCA next week. Students worked collaboratively to pair historical political cartoons with brief descriptions cards and captions. This task challenged students to use their text analysis skills with background civics content knowledge in order to successfully match the pieces. Additionally, students were expected to verbally prove using text evidence that their matched pieces were paired correctly. The WMS Civics Department would like to thank their partnership with the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship and Dr. Charles Flanagan of the National Archives for providing us with this phenomenal review activity!
