WES Celebrates Literacy Week

Wellington Elementary School participated in Literacy Week during the week of Jan. 25-29. It was the eighth annual Literacy Week sponsored by the Florida Department of Education and the Just Read Florida Office. On Monday, Jan. 25, Wellington Mayor Bob Margolis came in and read Oh, The Places You’ll Go to a few classes. The children enjoyed listening to the mayor and asked many questions. There were many great activities all week long. The school participated in DEAR (Drop Everything and Read), which had the entire school reading at the same time. School Superintendent Dr. Robert Avossa talked about a “top secret book” every morning on the school news. At the end of the week, the book was revealed and read by Dr. Avossa.
