Forty-four Walton Middle School students earned the opportunity to spend Friday afternoon, October 25th, celebrating with their friends.  Over the summer, these students took vacations for their minds by completing the school's reading challenge.  While not in school, these students each read at least three books (two fiction and one non-fiction) and completed a reading record for each.  Once slightly cooler temperatures set in, the school rewarded these readers with an outdoor celebration with pizza, drinks, cookies, and fun.  Each student also received a $10 gift certificate to the upcoming Scholastic book fair.  For WMS students, a summer commitment to learning continues to pay off throughout the year.
