WES Scholastic Program A Success

Wellington Elementary School students are excited to participate all year in the Scholastic Reading Counts program. Scholastic Reading Counts is an independent reading program for Grades K-12, which includes reading practice and software-based reading assessment.

The program has been proven to develop reading skills, along with motivating students to achieve reading success.

The kids have an opportunity to be on the WES Morning News Show as they reach a certain number of points. They receive a certificate and a prize as they reach these goals and recognition on the news. Media Specialist Cathy West is the program organizer.

Fourth grade student Benjamin Taylor has been busy since the beginning of the school year earning points as he has been reading. He is close to breaking the school record with his 1,250 points.
