Message from Mrs. Morgan:

It's hard to believe it's already Fall! We are excited about the cooler weather and all the fun events in October, by the way, we do a lot of learning here too! I need to thank the staff for their dedication to making the school start up as smooth as possible despite a few bumps in the road.


Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year: Wendy Royle

and Support Person of the Year: Dawn Davis

Picture is below!


**As a reminder: Please do not drop off students in the morning in the front parking lot or bus lane, you must go through the car rider line. If you choose to park, you must safely walk your child to the front doors of the school.


* Also, please obey the cross walk that connects from the neighborhood to the school. Safety is a priority, and the officers have given citations for speeding and not obeying the rules of the road outside our school.


Thank you for your continued support!

United Way

We are excited about the launch of our 2021 United Way campaign! Every single penny donated through this campaign will go directly to the nine local agencies supported by the United Way of Walton County. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OphvuQl3bas


This past year, one out of every three people in Walton County was served by at least one of the United Way agencies. That alone could mean roughly 5,200 Walton County School District students and teachers were able to have their needs met because of the generosity and support of United Way donors — like you.

Step: 1: Claim one (or five!) of these squares by emailing your child’s teacher with the square # you want.

Step 2: Send in cash or check for the amount on your square (checks made payable to SES).


*Each class will receive donuts & juice once the grid is completed. The FIRST class on each grade level to complete their grid will receive a pizza party!!!!!!

SSA (Student Success Alliance)

This year SES is introducing Student Success Alliance (SSA), which is Walton County’s own independent non-profit organization dedicated to helping all students stay in school and prepare for success as adults. They work one-to-one with ambitious students who need help overcoming their personal barriers to success. Using the evidence-based Task Centered Practice, they help students set and reach their goals so they can do well in school.

SSA believes every student needs and deserves:

1. The support of a caring adult

2. Basic resources to succeed in school

3. A plan for the future and a path to achieve it

4. An opportunity to engage and reinvest in the community. We unite the community in empowering students to succeed in school and in life.


You can partner with Student Success Alliance by reaching out to our site coordinator at courtney.farrow@walton.k12.ga.us or donating new toiletries, school supplies and gently used clothes or books.
