Third grade students at Mossy Head School created their very own junkyard wonders, inspired by Patricia Polacco’s book, The Junkyard Wonders. Students were challenged to use recycled materials, such as toilet paper rolls, bubble wrap, pipe cleaners, and leftover sheets of paper, to create a new purpose for the recycled“junk.” This activity provided students with a hands-on opportunity to understand the central message from the book: Every thing and every person has the potential to be something wonderful for those who choose to look!  Submitted by Allie Lee Blanton.

Student-created goals are a tremendous part of learning at Walton Middle School.  In classes throughout campus, students craft measurable and attainable goals and strive to reach them.  On Thursday, February 15th, district leaders conducted a School Improvement site visit.  Several articulate Warriors chatted with district leaders about their personal learning goals, discussing how and why they set their goals and what specific steps they were taking to achieve them.  These conversations exemplified meaningful learning at WMS.  Submitted by Kristen Nelson.
