ELLIOTT POINT 4th GRADERS ENJOY FIELD TRIP
TO BIOPHILIA CENTER IN WALTON COUNTY
Fourth grade students enjoyed a recent field trip to The Biophilia Center in Walton County. Students listened to presentations by naturists and had the opportunity to discover animals in their natural environment as part of the walking field trip. Students, such as Addie, enjoyed interacting with the turtles under the watchful eye of the staff naturalist. Students trooped through the woods and enjoyed the opportunity to be in the animals' natural environment. Exceptional Student Education teacher, Mary Beth Mayes, and Serra were surprised and equally wide-eyed by their closeness to a non poisonous snake. Fourth grade teacher Jackie Henry seemed more relaxed with her reptilian friend. The students will be taking one additional field trip to The Biophilia Center during the 2013-2014 school year.
We Would Like to Welcome Deputy Folley to TEAM Elliott Point!
We are thankful to have him as our SRO!
Congratulations to Elliott Point's Teacher of the Year, Patti Crosslin and Educational Support Employee of the Year, Maryvonne Morse!!
