C.A. Moore Elementary School participated in Celebrate Literacy, Florida Week by community members coming into the school to read. Each classroom had a community person read to the students. The guest readers read the book, The Giving Tree and each class now has a copy of the book. Ms. Felicia Nixon, principal made a special presentation on morning announcements. Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll donated a book about Florida. Her message to the students was to keep reading their 800 minutes per quarter and that she is proud of all of them. The students are good readers now and are working to become better readers. Pictured is St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara reading to Julie Luneburg’s fourth grade students.
