  • Mr. Hugh Wallace, Principal at O.W. Dillon video conferences with a school in Alaska

    O.W. Dillon Elementary Principal Hugh Wallace and a group of 6th graders spent some time on Monday, September 15th video conferencing with some high school students in Alaska.  The students had been studying the Civil Rights movement and wanted to ask questions about some of the events.  As someone who lived in Birmingham during the church bombing (the 51st anniversary of which was September 15th) and personally knew Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mr. Wallace was an excellent source of information for the students.

  • Woodland Park Magnet schools - edible painting

    Tina Montecino's class at Woodland Park Elementary Magnet School worked on creating solutions and mixing colors recently. The students experimented with color mixing to create new colors and made edible paint. The children then painted rainbow toast and made "paint" drinks.  During snack time they enjoyed their creations along with some butter and jelly donated by Waffle House.
