Salad Anyone?

Oct 01 2019

Each day during morning break at Walton Middle School, Ms. Kathy Russ' eighth grade students operate their own mini-restaurant.  The eighth graders take salad orders from their peers and then prepare them to order.  The students harvest the salad greens daily from the WMS ag program's hydroponic towers housed in Ms. Russ' classroom.  They thoroughly wash their hands and glove up to fulfill the orders they receive.  Not only do students prepare and enjoy healthy salads, but they also learn waitressing and kitchen skills that will serve them well later in life.  At WMS, learning can be both relevant and delicious.  Submitted by Kristen Nelson

West DeFuniak welcomed a huge number of dads on the morning September 25th for Donuts with Dads.  Donuts with Dad is a special event that brings families into the classroom and gets them involved at school. This year, the dads visited the classrooms with their students, and participated in a wide variety of classroom activities such as reading an Accelerated Reader Book and S.T.E.M Projects.   It was great to see so many dads today! WDE would like to thank our local Kiwanis Club, law enforcement, and Walton County Fire Rescue for serving as surrogate dads.
