Walton Middle School (in pictures)

I participated in an interview process, and it struck me when one of the candidates mentioned how hard it is to find a picture of Walton Middle School online. I had my 7th graders take a whole bunch of pictures, one inside and one outside of what they thought would be good to have online to represent our school.  Then they used BeFunky.com to quickly add a filter or effect to each of their pics.  Below is their work, both edited and #NoFilter ... if you prefer videos, I have uploaded it to Walton's YouTube Channel as well: https://youtu.be/9oWGE-f-fw4
