The Walton High School AVID juniors and seniors recently visited the Troy University campus. Troy Ambassadors gave them a tour of the campus where they were able to experience a little of the college life. Later the students were able to attend the homecoming game against Georgia Southern. The plunging temperatures and stinging rain couldn’t dampen their spirits or their individual determination to enjoy this opportunity! Submitted by Christy English.

The ladies of the 7th Grade Team at ECMS brought smiles to their students’ faces on Halloween. The “Wizards of 7th Grade” are a talented group of teachers that make learning fun for their students. Printed on the back of their shirts is the phrase, “The Pursuit of Excellence Continues”. Even while having fun, these teachers communicate high expectations to their students. ECMS is lucky to have these “Wizards of Knowledge” and would like to thank them for all they do for our students!!!
