FEES World Read Aloud Day

World Read Aloud Day (WRAD) is a celebration to advocate for literacy as a human right.  Reading and writing are ways that we are empowered to communicate with each other.  For 10 years people around the globe have read out loud on February 1 honoring their commitment to WRAD.  Ferguson-Easley Media Assistants led our school’s efforts to join this global celebration.  They were able to read a very special book to the entire school by using our intercom to broadcast from the media center.  Ms. McClellan, Ferguson-Easley Elementary Media Coordinator, selected Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,  by Doreen Rappaport for them to read out loud and Mrs. McLeod, assistant principal, assisted with the broadcast.  For more information about this event please visit their school’s site at Ferguson-Easley Elementary School
