The ECTC Trunk or Treat event held for the children of Cottondale following the devastation of Hurricane Michael was a HUGE success! The looks on the children's faces as well as those who helping to make it happen provides a tremendous statement about the power of compassion and giving! Thanks to all who helped support this event! Walton county residents donated over 10,000 pieces of candy, and ECTC students, staff and families came out to help bring some joy and smiles to the children and their teachers. Thanks to Deana Majors for the pictures!

Second grade students in Mrs. Jessica Dawkins’ class at WDE participated in a month long “Candy Corn Contest”. Students were encouraged to read and take AR tests throughout the month of October. Each time a student made an 80% or higher on an AR test, their name was added to the candy corn drawing for a chance to win. Mr. Rodney Free, assistant principal, drew the names of our lucky winners. Aiden Sanchez and Natalia Zemanick were thrilled to accept the tasty award! Submitted by Jessica Dawkins

Walton High School chorus welcomed visitors from Baptist College of Florida yesterday as they participated in an exchange concert/workshop at WHS! Dr. Buford Cox, Professor of Music, and Dr. Angela Glover, Professor of Piano, brought the BCF College Choir to sing and collaborate with the WHS Chorus, under the direction of Lona Robinson. The college students shared information about their academic journey, and talked about college life at BCU. It was a wonderful opportunity for the WHS singers to hear an advanced group, and experience some new repertoire!
A huge thank you goes to Jasmyn "Jazzy" Gomez for helping get donations of Halloween candy for Emerald Coast Technical College's Trunk or Treat tomorrow at Cottondale Elementary school. In the midst of destruction and tragedy, we hope to bring a little happiness and fun to the kids tomorrow!

This past Friday, PHS hosted their annual Trick or Trunk on campus. The event was open to students and other members of the community. Trick or Trunk gives parents a chance to bring their children to a safe place to go trick-or-treating. The PHS middle and high school grades, clubs, and sports team members welcomed trick-or-treaters dressed in their themed costumed and passed out tons of candy. It was another EPIC Trick or Trunk for the Bobcat family. Submitted by Kalli McMillan
