Students in Mr. Bump's class reviewed their recent vocabulary by playing Vocabulary Password. Students worked in groups of 4 to determine the vocabulary words based off the clues their teammates gave them. Students only had 1 minute to guess the vocabulary words correctly before the timer went off. The students enjoyed working with their peers on this engaging review lesson.

We are so excited that we get to brag on Jordan Nichols, a Junior at SWHS.  Jordan is a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist.  He is one of 16,000 Semifinalists in the US and will have the opportunity to compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million. Jordan earned this distinction by taking the PSAT/NMSQT at SWHS.  Last year Jordan was a member of the Walton County Academic Team that won the State Academic Championship.  He is a member of the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Seahawk Tennis Team.

We congratulate Jordan for this accomplishment and encourage all of our Seahawks to take the PSAT seriously when it is given at SWHS on October 11th.  Maybe you can follow in Jordan’s footsteps! Submitted by Barbara Stratton.

Kindergarten students at Butler Elementary School have been learning about Community Helpers.  When they had a chance to dress up and show what they want to be when they grow up, it was no surprise that there were a lot of “First Responders” in the hallways!  Our School Resource Deputy, Casy Lloyd, was excited to gather this elite group for a picture! Submitted by Tammy Smith.

The faculty and staff of West DeFuniak Elementary rallied around their co-worker, Dawn Barone, who is currently undergoing chemo therapy treatments. Mrs. Barone's treatments have resulted in her losing her hair. As the guidance counselor, Mrs. Barone often speaks with students about their character. Today, our faculty and staff were able to teach about compassion by wearing bandanas to support Mrs. Barone! We love you, Dawn! We're all in this together! #TeamBarone Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.
