Visiting baseball team inspires C. A. Moore students

The faculty, staff and students at C.A. Moore Elementary School gave a warm Florida welcome to the Worcester Academy baseball team from Worcester, Massachusetts. This is the third year the team has visited C.A. Moore Elementary. The team donates supplies and books to the school on each visit, and this year presented the school with a video camera. The players read to the students and spent time in the classrooms motivating the students to do well in school. Cesar Hurtado, a fourth grade student, commented, “I want to be very successful in school, make A’s and B’s and I am now inspired to get good grades to play baseball.” Makayla Tillman spoke about team member, Turner Greenty reading excerpts from the biography of Babe Ruth. According to Tillman, “I love biographies and I was inspired to finish the biography of Babe Ruth during Spring Break.” Pictured is literacy coach Barbara Sutton giving directions to the team members for their classroom assignments.
