WCSD Monthly Update

Every month, Mr. A. Russell Hughes, the Superintendent of Walton County Schools will share a video message with an update on the exciting things happening in the Walton County School District, Walton County, Florida. Check back often to stay informed on all the activities, events and accomplishments of teachers and students in the Walton County School District.

This month Superintendent Hughes celebrates our graduating Seniors and shares the dates for the graduation activities.  Mr. Hughes also recognizes the wonderful teachers and educational support professionals in our district as we approach Teacher Appreciation Week.  He emphasizes the importance of remaining diligent, and finishing the school year out in EPIC fashion!

Third and fourth graders at Butler Elementary got fired up to do their best on the upcoming FSA during a school pep rally on Friday!  Highlights of the rally included cheers led by the SWHS Cheerleaders and our own Coach Davies, a pep talk from Mr. Drake, and a special video created by the SWHS Leadership Class.

South Walton High School is celebrating School Library month!

The SWHS Media Center offers many resources. Students visit the library every month with their English classes to check out a book or e-book through Destiny. Our book displays of the newest books, career books, and even free books greet students as they enter the library.

Using our county access to the Gale Research databases, students can research thousands of resources at one time on available computers.

We also offer several different seating arrangements for quiet reading, study groups/book circles, or individual study.

The SWHS Media Center is even host to many college events for seniors that include meeting with recruitors in the fall and admissions labs in the spring.

April is a time to celebrate and reflect on all the ways to utilize our Media Center. Check out this short video of New York Times bestselling author, Jason Reynolds, as the 2018 Spokesperson for School Library Month.

At SWHS, we all promote life-long reading for enjoyment.
