Special thanks to Brenda Clemons and Marilyn Pascarella for providing nutritious and delicious meals ready-to-eat.


Cutchen notes, “Our new teachers bring exciting energy and diversity to our schools. It is a blessing to be able to spend a day with them, exchanging ideas as we prepare for a successful school year. The teacher leaders who facilitated each mini-session are to be commended for their commitment to success for all students across the District. I’ve worked in other Districts, and none compare to Wakulla. We are top notch and strive to get better every year.”
