WES Congratulates Student Readers

Students at Wellington Elementary School read books and took quizzes on Scholastic Inc.’s Reading Counts program throughout the school year. Students were recognized on the morning announcements when they reached 100 points. They received prizes and rewards for their hard work. Top winners were recognized with an ice cream celebration. This year’s top winners in third through fifth grade are Jermaine Wilson of Melissa Perry’s fifth-grade class and Marshall Kirkpatrick of Terri Gilstad’s fourth-grade class. Marshall earned more than 1,200 points — a school record. Wellington Elementary School is proud of its Wildcat readers.
