Shout Out to Bell Elementary students for reading 1,152 books on March 1 to kick off the Read Across America campaign. Bell Elementary Librarian Nell Boils said the student goal was to read 1,000 books with an 80 percent or higher score on their Accelerated Reader comprehension quiz. She appreciated the students' efforts along with the teachers' collaboration and support on the event. Following that success, the Cat in the Hat visited Bell, as well as local volunteers who kindly contributed to the literacy event. Students rotated between stations in the gymnasium and enjoyed a book read by community helpers.

Reading is an important focus at Wayne County Schools, particularly in the elementary grades. The schools used Dr. Seuss week to promote reading through his famous rhyming books. Representatives from Monticello Elementary's Student Leadership Team read a Dr. Seuss book with Winston, the students' favorite reading therapy dog, which was videoed and played for the students in each of their classrooms. Elementary teachers and librarians went all out decorating for the occasion and having special activities in their classrooms.
