It was a special day at Wellington Elementary School recently when each child had the opportunity to choose their own books to keep, thanks to the Children’s Services Council and the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County. The students were so excited to receive a new book to read for the summer. Media Specialist Cathy West was busy assisting the children in their selections. Reading, after all, is the key to learning, and learning is a child’s passage to succeeding in school and in life. Shown above is Emily Oswald’s first grade class with their new books.
