WMS PE students recently had the opportunity to participate in another fun "lifetime fitness" game, disc golf.  Students learned safety, game, and scoring rules, along with etiquette, and sportsmanship.  They also practiced their skills on a Par 3 course on the WMS playing fields.  Students were also given the opportunity to attend a presentation by DeFunk Disco, a disc golf club in our community, to learn more about courses in the area and opportunities to compete at a higher level.  Students enjoyed a demonstration by several club members that have competed nationally.

Walton Middle School would like to thank the Walton Education Foundation and the St. Joe Community Foundation for providing grant funds to purchase the disc golf equipment.  A special thank you also goes to Mr. Neal Kelly and the DeFunk Disco Club members for their assistance in acquiring the disc golf equipment and for speaking to WMS students to promote this exciting activity in our community.

The tribe is rising as students gain lifetime fitness knowledge and skills one disc golf toss at a time.
