This month's video was recorded at the Walton County School District Office Tivoli Complex. The Tivoli Complex was the former home of the Tivoli High School Tigers! The school was an Elementary/Junior high school from 1908 until 1935, and in 1935 became the first black high school in Walton County. It closed in 1969 with a long tradition of successful graduates, and a 100% graduation rate!

In this video, Superintendent Hughes wishes students well during the May testing season, shares some upcoming important reminders, and encourages students to be diligent in their studies until the end of the school year!

Maude Saunders is thankful for the many community partners who help provide for the needs of our students. This week, the Mission Integration team at

Freeport Middle School Art Department students painted under black lights with fluorescent paint in the art room.  Students then created an installation of all their paintings and sculptures in the old dark room.  They named the installation "The Glow Room."  All the students, teachers, staff, and even Superintendent A. Russell Hughes enjoyed viewing "The Glow Room!"  The project was funded by a grant from the Cultural Arts Alliance.  Way to go FMS art students!!! Submitted by Kendra Estes
