Read Across America

Happy Friday!  Starting this weekend and next week Welby Way will be promoting the joy of reading with our students and families, by celebrating Read Across America.  POWW is kicking off the week on Saturday and Sunday at The Village with a fundraiser at Sweetfin and then on Sunday at Open Book (located upstairs next to Burke Williams).  Come listen to a Welby Way staff member read a book aloud at Open Book (schedule on the attached flier) and then grab something delicious after at Sweetfin. Proceeds from both events go to supporting Welby Way.  Your support is greatly appreciated and attached are fliers for more information.  

READ ACROSS AMERICA - During the week student will participate in a variety of activites to promote literacy as part of Read Across America. We are also hosting a new sock donation drive to help families in need.   New socks can be dropped off in the main office all week long.   Please see the attached fliers for more information.
