Stingray pride has been spreading in a big way at Emerald Coast Middle School. Ms. Anderson's Science Classes have been collecting gently used (and new) stuffed animals.  The collection benefits Shriners Children's Hospital and many children will be given a stuffed animal during their stay at the hospitals.  Ms. Anderson wants to thank all the students and teachers who participated in the stuffed animal drive. ECMS collected over 800 stuffed animals for Shriners. Way to go Stingrays!!!!! The stuffed animals are on their way to deserving children in Shrevport, Louisiana and Tampa, Florida.  Submitted by Angela Vance.

Members of the Pensacola Opera recently visited and performed for students at Bay Elementary School as part of their educational outreach program.  They performed an operatic version of the story of Goldie Locks and the Three Bears titled Goldie B. Locks and the Three Singing Bears by John Davies.  The story is a "fun retelling of the classic tale with an operatic twist. Goldie, a little girl who has a great passion for bus and spiders, finds herself in a sticky situation when she stumbles upon dwelling of the three singing bears." The production features the music of Mozart and Offenbach to teach the importance of honesty and true friendship. Special thanks to the Pensacola Opera for sharing their talents with the students of Walton County!
